Welcome to Eurobasket, Starring Kyrylo Fesenko

August 30, 2011

Only one day til Eurobasket starts!! Is it ridiculous that I feel like it’s Christmas Eve? Because that’s exactly what it feels like.

MediaUkrbasket has been following the Ukrainian team around as it prepares for the tournament, which means we get to see a lot more of Fes than we normally would. Which means we win.

First of all, I just have to say that I love the cardboard cutout Ukraine made of Fes for press conferences and other appearances:

The team has been spending a lot of time in practice, of course. Thanks to MediaUkrbasket, we get to see what goes on in the gym. Various members of the team are working on their post-ups and free throws, but Fes is busy keeping his teammates clean.

And then there are interviews, of course. While Fes’ teammates speak with the media, Fes grabs a mic and interviews his teammates. Exactly as we’d expect.

Being a part of something as huge as Eurobasket means that you do a lot of posing for and with fans too.

Can’t see the guy’s face, but can you guess who is so enthusiastically posing?

Who else would it be but Fes?

They say a picture speaks a thousand words, but well, gifs are even better.

    This totally made my day. Is it bad that I’m all for Fes being re-signed just so he can keep fans amused? Dude is classic.

    @SurlyMae I am completely in agreement. I don’t even care if he gets no playing time. I just want him around.

    @candybarr15: Every time I see him around his players I think “beach ball.” He just looks so short and round…

    I love Fes so much!! His wrist band is among my most prized possessions and one day soon we will be best friends…

    Happiness, pure joy, you have to love him!
