It can’t get more obvious than this! Three alleged criminals who were captured and then released just two weeks ago were back in custody, only to be released once more. With the EuroLeague trophy still missing and the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague gyms placed under constant surveillance.
Υou can’t help but wonder what’s really going on. We will report the answer when we get to the end of this peculiar case, but for the moment the only thing that we can be certain of are the latest five arrests.
Keith Langford: You know him right? The ringleader of the Unics Kazan gang once more dominated the court. With ruthless precision, he did everything imaginable, scoring 27 points, grabbing 10 rebounds and dishing 5 assists against Brose Bamberg. He remains one of the most fearsome criminals on the loose and that’s why nobody can explain why he was let free just two weeks after his previous arrest.
Luka Doncic: His age remains his shield against the authorities. On the other hand, despite being just 17 years old, this juvenile perpetrator is a danger to everyone. This time, just two weeks after his deeds in Istanbul, he didn’t show any kind of remorse as he led “Los Blancos” of Real Madrid against Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv. With 10 points, 11 rebounds and 8 assists he came near a rare triple-double heist. The prosecutors are trying to find out if his birth certificate is forged…
Ognen Kuzmic: This Serb cannot be underestimated anymore. After his outburst against CSKA Moscow two weeks ago, he did it again versus Fenerbahce Istanbul. He was manic, amassing 21 points and 8 rebounds, leaving behind only death and destruction. When the smoke cleared, Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade had gained more respect in the underworld than ever. And Kuzmic is one of the main reasons for that.
K.C. Rivers: An accurate sniper will always get a shady offer, and this hired gun, who was part of Real Madrid recently, now is part of the Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens crew. Once more he got the job done with 23 points, making 5 out of 10 long-range shots, as the Greeks prevailed over Anadolu Efes Istanbul in overtime. It was a tense showdown, but Rivers is known all over the old continent for his cold-blooded skill.
Dairis Bertans: Speaking about shooting abilities and cold blood, nobody was deadlier last week than this Latvian shooter. Yet another criminal who makes Istanbul his base, he made every shot count for Darussafaka Dogus against Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz. His total of 29 points was the result of 10 made shots out of a total of 13. It’s an unlucky number, but not for him – only for his victims.
