Sinan Guler at Galatasaray Liv Hospital

This year's champion in Turkish Basketball League, Galatasaray Liv Hospital has landed their first reinforcement by adding former Anadolu Efes point guard Sinan Guler to 2 years deal. The deal also includes one additional year of option. He averaged 17 minutes per game in the domestic season where he recored 5.3 ppg and 1.9 apg within these minutes.

This is surely a valuable addition for Galatasaray Liv Hospital team;however, it's kind of a surprise move as well. Recently, head coach Ergin Ataman emphasized that he didn't plan to add anyone into his guard rotation. Since this transfer contradicts with his recent statement, we might see some players departing during July. Especially, whether or not Carlos Arroyo remains with the club by exercising his option is a total unknown at the moment.

10 June 2013 Banvit - Galatasaray Medical Park

Banvit - Galatasaray final series 3rd match up
In the 3rd game of TBL final series, Galatasaray Medical Park is coming to Bandirma with 2-0 lead. They've defeated Banvit with remarkable margins in the both of first two games. Banvit has never been a team which I'm fancy about;however, I could safely say i didn't expect them to be trailed that hard either. As I wrote earlier, I didn't watch the first game since I was quite busy following the social events rather than the basketball series but what i heard and what i read clearly make my mind to think that first two games took place exactly in the same way. Visiting Banvit played well enough to prevail on the road during the first halves, but they couldn't avoid being handed in heavy defeats at the end. Now, it's time for the 3rd match up and I believe they are supposed to have something to say  especially when the series come to Bandirma tomorrow.

TBL Final Series

Dear readers,

Due to the social uprising and related events in Turkey which has been taking place for 2 weeks, I haven't had time to watch the last games of semi final series as well as the first game of the finals.

That's the reason why you don't find any updated information over here for about 10 days. I try to follow tonight's game and hopefully write some lines for the third game.

Sorry for inconvenience.
