The Crossover: Tibor Pleiss

Season 4, Episode 9,  Jun 28, 02:00 PM

The final guest on The Crossover in 2021/22 is EuroLeague winner Tibor Pleiss! 

The German talks us through how supportive his parents were when he was chasing his basketball dream as a youngster and how a move outside of his native country to Baskonia was an important turning point for him.

Pleiss explains how his short stint in the NBA was the most frustrating time of his career before Ergin Ataman gave him the opportunity to return to Europe with Galatasaray in 2016.

He recounts the disappointment of a EuroLeague near miss in 2019 with Anadolu Efes and the elation of winning the competition in his home town Cologne two years later.

Pleiss then describes the crucial and breathtaking moments that led up to Efes winning a second consecutive EuroLeague title in Belgrade just a few weeks ago.

Plus, can he snatch victory away from our current leaders in the final Crossover Test of the series?
