    Geriausi karjeros metai jau praeityje, bet vis dar atrode solidziai stiprioje Ispanijos lygoje…Nors mums labiau reikalingas PG, bet turbut tai buvo geriausias greitas papildymo variantas, siuo metu esantis rinkoje. Zaidejas su pakankamai didele patirtimi Eurolygoje ir lyderio savybem, todel adaptacija neturetu uztrukti.

    „Žalgiris“ neapsiribos tik K.C. Riversu: bus ieškomas dar vienas gynėjas? PLAČIAU ČIA -> https://bit.ly/2QIY8hg

    patyres zaidejas orientuotas i tasku rinkima, individualiai gan stiprus, puolime talento mazai todel toks zaidejas turetu praverst, nes be grigonio dabar nelabai kam buna patraukt komandos

    daug vilciu i ji nedeciau, geriausi metai praeity, dabar jo kreive eina zemyn,tuo labiau jau trecias klubas per metus vercia pamastyti.

    Būkit realistai- nieko iš jo ypatingo

    Net ir Cervena Zvezda rimti fanai sako, kad jei jo forma tokia kaip praejusi sezona, tai nieko gero, bet ji isemus 2 rungtynes ACB lygoje dar prastesne(vid. 7 taskeliai) kai anas lyderiu statomas buvo. Tad nera ko dziaugtis. Aisku Ule ne tu 7 vid. nesurenka.

  10. As pasitikiu

    As manau kad naudos duos solydziai ir lyderiu gali but
