Polish Playoffs 4.0

Most people will agree that the NBA Playoffs are the most interesting games to watch in the NBA, and so far the playoffs have not disappointed! Its always great to see players and teams elevate their game with next level focus, intensity and sense of urgency. Luckily for me (and I mean that sincerely) its also time for playoff basketball in Poland!! In my 9 years of playing professionally, this year’s playoffs will be the sixth time I’ve participated in the playoffs, fourth time in Poland.

I’ve experienced a range of outcomes in my previous three Polish post-seasons. In my first outing, we came up short in the Broze Medal game. The second time we were defeated in Game 6 of the Finals. Most recently in 2017 we became the first 8th seeded team to defeat the top seed in the first round of the playoffs.

This year I’m excited to add another page to my story book, and to the history of Asseco Gdynia. Adding a banner to the rafters of Gdynia Arena is a dream we are all committed to. The road is never easy, but we have a group of guys that know what it takes to win, and know that every great thing comes with great sacrifice.

10 wins stand between us and our ultimate goal…

Round 1 Game 1 on Thursday vs Legia Warszawa in Gdynia
