Cleveland Cavaliers big man Timofey Mozgov knows Russia is tougher than America. Just ask him.
Before Friday night’s loss to the New Orleans Pelicans, James Jones was talking to reporters about how his contract prohibits him from riding horses.
Mozgov heard his teammate and responded with a quote that has no appropriate rebuttal unless you live in Skyrim and have conquered dragons.
In the locker room James Jones was talking about how his contract doesn't let him ride horses. Timofey Mozgov: "In Russia we ride bears"

Can’t top that, Mr. Jones.
On that note, perhaps Cavs owner Dan Gilbert should look into revising Mozgov’s contract to ensure he doesn’t injure himself in the offseason riding bears.
