Ukrainian ” Big ” Igor Zaytsev shared his impressions of the match against the US national team in 2014.
“It is always nice to remember the match against Turkey at the 2014 world Cup in Spain. I played well there, scored a couple of crucial points, and we won. I remember how emotional everyone was, we could have left the group, but it didn’t work out. I remember Eurobasket 2013 in Slovenia very much, we performed well there, I played a lot. We had a solid team, and a good coach. In General, it was a Golden period, Golden years, we were all younger… It’s nice to remember!
Match with the USA in 2014? It is impossible without it, of course. When someone comes to me and I need to show off, I turn on the highlights of this particular match. It was a significant day for me, a big event in my life.
I defended myself against Demarcus Cousins and against… he played on the “five”. The guy from Denver, Kenneth Farid. What a car! It seemed to me then that they were all kind of inhumans in a good way. Strong, fast, bouncy-all components are closed, everything is there, all are able to. It was a great experience for me, I had a feeling then, as if I looked somewhere in the future,” Zaitsev said.
A Chicago journalist will publish excerpts from Jerry Krause’s unpublished memoir
Chicago journalist Casey Johnson will publish excerpts from the unpublished and unfinished memoirs of former General Manager of the legendary “bulls” of the 90’s Jerry Krause.
Krause became one of the main characters of the first series of “the Last dance”, which is dedicated to the life of the team. The Manager, who passed away in 2017 at the age of 77, is often not presented in the best light.
The Krause family entrusted Johnson with the General Manager’s writing in 2007, so that those interested could evaluate events from his point of view.
