Leandro Barbosa tweets a pic of the Bro-Zilians

I think it was decided that the Brazilian duo of Leandro Barbosa and Fab Melo would be referred to as the Bro-Zilians on this website. But anyways, the team chemistry is strong between these two. Can anyone confirm Barbosa's claim that they are the first Brazilian teammates in NBA history? Imagine if we somehow get Nene in the future.

Barbosa also tweeted a picture of his new jersey. I wonder if he chose #12 on purpose so he and Fab could be 12 and 13?
