Gamecock fans will not be surprised that "Chuck Eidson stood out in Friday's semifinal, scoring 19 points, grabbing 8 rebounds and setting a Euroleague semifinals record with 6 steals."
Maccabi will now face Greek power Panathinaikos in Sunday's title game in a showdown that could potentially alter the trajectory of Eidson's career.
Every NBA team scouts the Euroleague Final Four, and many send their GM's to see the games in person. With a strong game Sunday afternoon, Eidson could potentially play his way back to the US, though a team would have to like him enough to buy out the final year of his Maccabi deal.
If the rare Coldplay-fueled highlight video from the last Eidson post was not enough for you, I found a nice Scottish accented report on his Week 1 MVP performance, and a highlight play from his time in the German Bundesliga. (I love Chuck Eidson.)
