Maccabi like to shop… American. The Israeli team has had great successes using an American recipe, and they want to return to the highest levels of the EuroLeague with just that kind of recipe.

This is why, in addition to some big signings from the European market, Maccabi wanted to go for the bang from the NBA and did so with the arrival of Tarik Black! The 27-year-old center will be crossing the Atlantic for the first time after a full four-year stint in the magical world.

Eurohoops writes about the journey of the American player, who has already achieved plenty – not just in relation to basketball – and who would like to leave his mark as a role model as well, not just as a basketball player.
