April 2023. We are faced with a major problem here, as this player is “needed immediately” by Red Star, and the question is how much he can deliver after 293 days without a single competitive match. Players brought in during the season, especially in the later stages of the competition, must immediately make a difference and provide the quality that was missing.
They made many mistakes in selecting the team in the current season at Mali Kalemegdan. The cause of all this is the dismal result in the EuroLeague, where they are performing below par. They occasionally shine, but nothing more than that.
There is no trace of continuity, nor any sign of it. And everything is “controversial” because of the enormous investment in the team and the fact that they had the largest budget in the club’s history. From the current perspective, reaching the EuroLeague Top 10 seems miles away, so the red and whites will most likely be left to fight for the ABA League title.
They are in a good position, as they will enter the playoffs from the pole position, which guarantees home court advantage. Before all that, we will also witness the Radivoj Korać Cup, a competition that carries great appeal and a trophy that everyone wants to “grab”. Impressive career
Tompkins was a serious basketball player.
Whether this statement is still valid today, we cannot possibly know, as we haven’t seen him on the court for a long time. In 2011, the Los Angeles Clippers picked him as the 37th pick in the draft, and he played in the NBA for two years, from 2011 to 2013. In the Clippers’ jersey, he only made 24 appearances, did not perform at the expected level, and in 2014, he signed with the Russian team Nizhny Novgorod.
After that, he played for Real Madrid, with whom he won the EuroLeague in 2018. In the most elite competition in Europe, he played 92 games, averaging 9.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, and one assist. Kurir sport / M. B.
