6'10" forward, 57th overall pick for the Brooklyn Nets, and current member of Fenerbahçe Ülker Ilkan Karaman has begun blogging for the official Euroleague website to kick off the New Year.
Here's a taste of Karaman's (assumedly translated) words:
Hello to all the Euroleague fans! This is Fenerbahce Ulker player Ilkan Karaman. First of all, I would like to wish everyone a happy new year, filled with basketball! I want to start off my first blog by telling you a little about myself and the Euroleague, which I am playing in for the first time. After a summer with unbelievable experiences which words cannot explain, I transferred to the team of my dreams, Fenerbahce Ulker. This is a team that you must experience to understand. Every time I set foot on the court of Fenerbahce Ulker Sports Arena, I experience a different kind of excitement. Our fans are with us in every game and always support us.
Karaman is averaging 4.5 points and 2.8 rebounds in 13.4 minutes per game in 11 gams for Fenerbahçe.
