Tibor Pleiß now enjoys the status of a legend – with Anadolu Efes Istanbul, the 32-year-old won the championship of the best European basketball league against Real Madrid in the EuroLeague for the second time. In the heartbeat final, he was the decisive player with 19 curves. “I really still have not realized it. I still have the feeling that someone is saying to me: you only dreamed it,” says Tibor Pleiß almost 2 days later in the MagentaSport podcast “Basketball Department”. Pleiß leaves his future in Istanbul (“basketball is a business, you never know how things will go”) and participation in the European Championships in Germany (from September 1 to 18 live on MagentaSport) after about 80 matches in the season still open . : “It’s really hard on my body. I’m still young. But I can feel that I need a little break from time to time.”

Below are excerpts from the interview with the two-time EuroLeague champion Tibor Pleiß – if used, please mention the source MagentaSport. The semifinals open on Friday 27 May at 18.45 with ALBA Berlin against MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg. On Saturday, FC Bayern Munich will host the secret favorites Telekom Baskets Bonn – live from 20.15. MagentaSport shows all games live.

Who can evade such a request? “You have legendary status – enjoy it too,” advises reporter Michael Körner of “legend” Tibor Pleiss. Winning the EuroLeague title twice: no other German has actually managed to do so. “I really still have not realized it. I still have the feeling that someone is saying to me: you only dreamed it,” says Pleiß after a little sleep in the MagentaSport podcast “Basketball Department”: “It was a delight of joy in the last one and a half day.”He does not want to watch the final against Real Madrid with his family until the summer at the earliest.

“Basketball is a business, you never know how things will go!”

Until then, there are other problems. For example, his expiring contract with Anadolu Efes Istanbul and the goal of becoming Turkish champion again. “I’ve done my job now.” Now the agent and the requesting clubs are in exchange. “I’m very relaxed about it. The thing is, the Turkish league continues tomorrow. I have to pull myself together a little bit now and concentrate on this last part. It would be nice if we managed the championship, like last year could crown. “That’s the focus. “What then happens behind the scenes, I try to stay a little away from it.” He left the job to his confidants: “The agents talk, the day-to-day managers talk to each other. I’ll be curious to see what’s on the list later.” Pleiss praises the very informal atmosphere of Anadolu Efes Istanbul. But: The champion is apparently facing a major upheaval. “Basketball is a business, you never know how things will go!”

Pleasure at the European Championships? “I do not have to do anything! I can well imagine it.”

How the European Championships in Germany could go with Pleiß, “I will not deal with that just yet.” But the currently most successful German player should be there at such a European Championship, right? “I’m not going to do anything! I can well imagine that. But that’s what I want to focus on when the season is over.” Then “I see how the body and health feel.” With the EuroLeague, he comes to a total of 80 matches per. season. That is why Tibor Pleiss keeps its European Championship participation open. “It’s hard on my body. I’m still young, but I can feel that I need a little break from time to time.”
