Goodbye gift to Vakifbank, Zhu, do it for your teammates and sponsors before you leave for China.

Re: @Cjango
i don’t think it is a gift but rather a future investment. do u know,novara’s star egonu who defeated vakif almost alone,only earns 150,000 euros while zhu earns around 1,500,000 euros (10 times more).such high salaries are paid only in a few rich clubs in the world, but on the other hand, the bests must play in best leagues to remain the best. remember kim y k,who left fenerbahce as a superstar, spent one season in chinese league and returned as an ordinary good player. zhu’s return to china is not her personal decision but obligation, yet for 2021 she ‘ll be free to choose her club, and she wont have much options.

What did Motta do to great Ezcibasi, horor, they should ban him. Kim, Tijana,… two best players. No block, no accept. Something is very wrong.

I dont know why Motta is not fielding Gibbemeyer, its already finals. she is veteran and talented. Thats why she was hired, to help the team. She cannot do this if she is in the sideline.

Stephane May 3, 2019 - 10:40 am

Because he is limited to 3 foreigners on the court and Jordan Larson, Kim and Boskovic are already doing a pretty fantastic job, on the front row and the back row whereas you would only have Gibbemeyer on the front row.
