After touching the thigh at the end of the first round, Guerschon Yabusele (2.03m, 26) is really well fit to play in the EuroBasket quarter-final against Italy (Wednesday 5:15pm). According to fellow tricolor Rudy Gobert, the Bear has the level to play in the NBA.
In the final quarter of the match against Turkey, we saw Gershon Yabusli return to the dressing room for a few minutes and then stick his head in his bag. So we thought we saw a wounded bear. We even thought of a setback for someone who injured his thigh against Bosnia and then survived facing Slovenia, who only trained both legs before Turkey. Fear more than harm: The Real Madrid winger will be present in the quarter-final against Italy.
” We have a very good staff, with whom I spent almost all these past days. I feel healthy, there is no problem in this aspect Enough to focus on the game, and a very high competition range. But the Drew compatriot saw others. Against the Italians, he would oppose many of the Euroleague wings: Niccolo Melli, Achille Bolognara, Luigi Datumi or even Simone Fontechio. The latter catapulted to the MLS pro this summer after two hopeful seasons in C1. Rudy Gobert, the top three-pointer in the Great League, sees Guerschon Yabusele on a similar path.
“ For me, Gershon is an NBA player. I think he will be back there very soon, and that this time he will succeed in establishing himself there, Tell us. The experience he has gained in the Euroleague and international competitions can help him a little more in his progress. I have matured too. Physically, he is stronger than most of the 4 positions in the NBA. And he’s very athletic: he’s a jumping bear! Honestly, he’s a key player on our team. I think it is getting better year by year. He’s versatile, powerful and can get out of the way… I find he’s making great progress in his understanding of the game. In this campaign, he is very important to us, and he will have a key role until the end of the competition. »
“I’m trying to take a little from everyone’s game”
At the age of twenty-five, the person in question said that he passed a milestone in every stage of his career, including the last at Real Madrid, in which he remarkably won the title of champion of Spain. ” At Real Madrid, Pablo Laso tried to develop well, and in my position Trey Tompkins and Anthony Randolph, who had great moments in Madrid, especially in the post-match period, helped me. I work with Vincent Poirier and Eddie Tavares for my Inner Relationship with the Interior. I talk a lot with Rudy Fernandez to make progress with my shot. I try to take a little from everyone’s game. I try to read and find the middle ground in every situation. »
In his first four Euro games, the Bear had 14.8 points for 56% on shots and 4.3 rebounds for 13.3 PIR in 26 minutes. Before making the correct comeback without playing the last minutes against the Turks (9 points at 4/9 in shots, 3 assists in 20 minutes). If Amath M’Baye is finally released into the position, the bear in good shape will undoubtedly allow the Blues to shoot more in this competition.
