Good choise for Gala instead of McCollum. Smith has lots of thing that McCollum have additionally asist abilities. He is more athletic than Errick and he drives stronger. His defense is powerful for an athletic pg. Only question is his first year in Europe basketball. If he can adaptive quickly, he would be rising star of this Euroleague season.
No question Efes fans are not 'the best'... it might has to do with the team spirit, but that is (unfortunately) not the problem of Tyus, he simply lack basic skills to become 'top preformance' player, and on to of that his real problem is his mental ...
I agree with you but anyway Gala thinks Tyus as role player. There is one transfer remaining for pivot position after Kristic. Maybe he will be Lasme if he takes less than 6 months suspension or another athletic player. Gala's big men rotation will be like this: Daye - Tyus - Kristic - XXX
It's not about players, it is about Efes' team organization. I don't remember any player come to Efes and reach optimal performance. Players like Tyus are reach top performance in front of audiences. Ipekci is the best hall for these players. Main thing is pg transfer.
