I agree for Saric it is good for him to wait. I was just saying I did not understand it at the time they gave him that contract either, and don't now. It's still puzzling to me really. You over spend on a young kid that is a project, but your whole entire goal as a team is to "win now at all costs"? Just odd.
Unfortunately for Saric, he had an atrocious performance in the Turkish finals. But then again, his whole team pretty much did as well. There is no way a team like Efes, which is probably something like the 6th best team in Europe, should be losing to the team they lost to 4-1. The team they lost to is probably something like a top 50 team in Europe, if even that.
So that pretty much sums up how bad they played.
