Eurobasket 2011: Turkey

Next game, Turkey...

A lot has been said about Turkey, mostly after their defeat against Poland. Well, here I bring you a couple of clips.

Everybody knows Emir Preldzic, but I thought it would be a good idea to show some of his skills. We know he needs improvement on Defense, and a better shooting technique, but he’s an all around player who can drive hard to the basket, shoot (terrific coming off dribble) and pass. And basically that’s what we find in this short video. I love this young player, his future is in his own hands.

One of the most dangerous things for the Spanish teams is to manage with Ersan Ilyasova’s defense. He plays far from the basket, has a devastating first step when he goes to the rim, can hit the three... and will play the power forward to take our bigs outside of the paint. Many pick and pop situations, many one on one... and something he does really well, to fake the ball screen and cut hard to the basket (take a look at the video)

I repeat, our bigs will have a hard game tonight.
