As a player, he had a great career in Europe mainly with CSKA Moscow and played as naturalized Russian with the national team of his adopted country alongside Andrey Kirilenko and under coach David Blatt. He made the winning shot in the Eurobasket 2007 final in Spain against the home country and a roster that included among other Pau Gasol.
