This was a grand win by Galatasaray over Anadolu Efes in the derby for the Turkish Super Basketball League. Yet the always restless Ergin Ataman didn’t hesitate to openly criticize Joey Dorsey’s negative performance.

“He did more harm to us, than good”, were the words of Galatasaray‘s head coach. “Every minute he spent on court was against us  “It was like we played with only 6 players”, Ergin Ataman commented. With only a 7 player rotation, his hands were tied yet he led his team to a victory that its true importance will be realized in the playoffs.

Let’s see if the quite vocal American center will respond… in any way!
