Re: Israeli Basketball Fans
His military commitment is over. He's a talented player but it seems that he thinks in a "different wavelength" and has difficulty with some coaches. The former coach of maccabi Zvi Sherf (who's sort of the euroleague's Bobby Knight) didn't like him much, made fun of him in practice and benched him. Eliyahu has such a poor relationship with Zvi Sherf who is still the coach of the national team that he may refuse to play for the national team. Right now Eliyahu will either remain with maccabi, or move on to either Tau Ceramica or Hapoel Holon. Eliyahu has moved up the rotation since Maccabi's starting power forward Terrence Morris has signed with CSKA but Maccabi has a promising prospect Anton Shoutvin that could move ahead of Eliyahu in the rotation.
