Coming back in style, Elijah Bryant shares his journey to the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Final Four in his latest vlog.

Lacking consistent content in recent months was proudly explained by the former BYU standout presenting his expanding family at the top and also during the video. It was also the first Final Four experience for his kid.

“In life, it is not about the outcome. It is about the systems you develop and the habits you develop. Win or lose, it is still a journey and the journey always continues. So, come along,” he noted inviting the viewers to virtually follow him to Belgrade, Serbia.

Hotel issues, getting ready for action, recovering from minor injuries, strange encounters with Olympiacos fans, talks with teammates, family moments in Belgrade, solid advice to younger players looking to make it, highlights of his own and team efforts in the Final Four, celebrations and much more.

Bryant, 27, averaged 8.0 points. 7.0 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.5 blocks per Final Four game in the wins over Olympiacos and Real Madrid securing the back-to-back championship for Anadolu Efes. He tallied 5.3 points, 2.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.6 steals, and 0.1 blocks per contest over 36 appearances in the 2021-22 edition of the EuroLeague.

Coming out of BYU in 2018, he turned pro in Israel playing for Hapoel Eilat in 2018-19 and from there to Maccabi Tel Aviv for the next couple of seasons. Following a cup of tea and an NBA championship with the Milwaukee Bucks, he joined the Istanbul club last October.
