Istanbul, Turkey's Fenerbahce Ulker is in the Euroleague Final after defeating Spain's Laboral Kutxa Vitoria in overtime, during the Euroleague Final Four semifinal today. It's the first time any Turkish team made it this far in Euroleague play, with the Final Four coincidentally sponsored by Turkish Airlines. Our old friend Pero Antic now starts at center for Fenerbahce, alongside fellow ex-NBAer Ekpe Udoh who was shifted to the 4-spot. Pero was a Euroleague champ two years in a row (2012, 2013) with Greece's Olympiacos, before signing with the Hawks back in the summer of 2013. It's his first attempt at another Euroleague title since parting ways with Atlanta. Pero led Fener with 7 rebounds, plus he hit a pair of threes and gave the ol' tried-and-true perimeter fake in the first half, this one leading to an oop for fellow ex-NBAer Jan Vesely. The Euroleague Final, in Berlin, will be held on Sunday between Fenerbahce and probable-favorite CSKA Moscow. ~lw3
