Turkish League
It's one of my favorite leagues to watch in Europe and the quality is improving every year. Playoffs are in full force right now.

Besiktas has done a great job putting a strong team together. They've got Carlos Arroyo, Marcelus Kemp, David Hawkins, Pops Mensah-Bonsu, Zoran Erceg, and Erwin Dudley and took up Fenerbahçe in the first round. They just went up 2-1 against Galatasaray who had the best record in the regular season and are one win from the finals.

Efes and Banvit are in a tough series with the next game on in a few minutes. Should be an exciting final series.

Re: Turkish League
Besiktas capped off an amazing season with a 4-2 win over Efes in the finals. :applause:

They won the Turkish League, the Turkish Cup, and EuroChallenge. What's even more impressive is they did it while shuffling a lot of key players. Deron Williams left early in the season. Marcelus Kemp was the leading scorer for a good part of the season and he got injured and barely played the last half of the season. Pops Mensah-Bonsu and Carlos Arroyo joined the team late in the year and became their most important players while David Hawkins, Dudley, and Erceg were great in the playoffs as well.

Hopefully they can keep this same team for the Euroleague and pick up some good Turkish players for the bench.
