Description Very interesting story… Comes from Kibbutz Lavi… Served 4 years in a special unit in the army, and started playing seriously only at late age of 22… Promoted with Zefat, played there one more season before finding a home in Ra'ananna… In the beginning was no more than a defensive specialist and a great fighter… Really elevated his game, and added an outside shooting and passing dimension… Steals almost two balls for every turnover… Not the greatest percentage from downtown, but will make the right ones… Great defender, always reads plays ahead… True fighter, never gives up on a ball… After two years as a good backup in Jerusalem, returned to collaborate with Coach Druker in Galil… Had a great season, but financial problems broke up the romance… The Israeli Iron Man, never missed a game because on an injury… Somehow like AC Green in that way, or Cal Ripken JR… Really improved his rebounding and foul shooting… In Europe, became Nahariya's scorer… Short for his position, but very strong… Played for Israel in the 2001 EC… Rare double-double of 12 and 10 in Jerusalem's famous win in Vilna in Saporta 1/4 finals… Stunned Russia with 32 points including 6 for 6 three-pointers in Moscow which surprised Zvi Sherf's Dynamo… Wise, efficient and experienced veteran…
  • Relegated to the National League with Ironi Nahariya in 09/10
