Positives - Israel Hayom Basketball Podcast - Episode 36Should Chinano Onuaku have been signed during the season?
Hapoel Tel Aviv started the season excellently. The center position was played by Chris Horton, who fit in well. The team had the option of signing last season's player Chinano Onuaku and then the debate began – an opportunity not to be missed, or the argument that if something works it shouldn't be touched.
The answer: Bottom line:

Oded Katsch's first attempt as coach of Maccabi Tel Aviv - 15 years earlier - was a big crash. With his appointment last summer, questions arose as to whether it would work this time and whether faith in him was enough, because Ketch was a kind of signing, there was no choice after the failure to bring in Xavi Pasqual. The other question was whether Maccabi could return to believing in the Israeli coach.Repentance:

It was a move that raised many doubts. Sean Dawson signed for Holon and brought with him many questions. Is he the right replacement for the departed duo of Rafi Manko and Guy Panini? Will Dawson, who wants the ball in his hand quite a bit, fit into a team whose foundation has been running together for a while?Answer:

Cornelius was a player who struggled to stand out and moved every season from one team to another. Last season at Hapoel Gilboa/Galil he made progress. Despite this, it was really unclear whether he was suitable at his level to play in one of the greatest in Israeli basketball.Answer:

DJ Cooper broke all assists records here in a big way. There was no such morality in our league and no one could come close to his numbers. On the other hand, there were constant complaints about his behavior and treatment of his teammates, and there were quite a few confrontations, culminating in an incident with his coach Elad Hussein during the timeout in the Kiryat Ata game. The group's policy all along was to contain his behavior and not send him home.Answer:
