In another special episode to mark twenty seasons of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague, the American talks about building a relationship at Maccabi Tel Aviv with coach David Blatt and about dominating the Final Four in 2014, when Maccabi upset both CSKA Moscow and Real Madrid to win the title. Rice was the Top Scorer and MVP in Milan. He also speaks his “crazy” first derby for Panathinaikos against Olympiacos, when he netted 41 points in their EuroLeague win last December. Find out why Tyrese Rice has moved between ten clubs in ten years and whose name he has tattooed on his arm.
