    He played an excellent season but he is limited in the upside of what he could become. He is extremely mobile for a PF and high hustle guy. He really excels in transition and running the break. He will be very active on the boards both ways and around the rim. On the other hand, he has no outside shot and is absolutely terrible from FT (below 50%).

    I was surprised about it.
    Efes seem as an awful team this season, and won the game

    Efes is awful, but an awful Euroleague team still. I'm quite surprised as well

    Maybe, the effect of Bogdanovic and Udoh are bigger than we thought?

    So guys finally some prospects getting some responsibility. Hats off to sir Trifunovic, and thanks to Crockers’ injury Ene realize he has a player called Yiğit Arslan!

    This past season, league wasn’t as deep as the previous one. Some teams couldn’t keep up with the others and it hurt the competition. With two newly promoted teams like Eskisehir and Sakarya , the gap between top and bottom of the league should be narrower again. I don’t like the fact that there won’t be any team from Ankara though, they will be missed.
