«Astana» Presidential Basketball Club expresses its gratitude to all for the season!
This season we have a great team — united and ready to fight in every single game. We had a common goal, and we went to it. We have spent the most successful season in the history of the club and became the most decorated men's team in the country. Yes, we made mistakes, but corrected them, moved on, fought to the end every second of every match on every centimeter of the court. Guys did a great job, they trained hard and gave it all to each game!
We thank each of the players. Thanks to all the imports — Stephen Holt, Michael Jenkins, JJ O'Brien, Kenneth Horton and Jeffrey Grossell for the new emotions and contribution to the development of the team and the entire Kazakhstan basketball. We would like to wish you health and to continue to build successful careers. Thanks to our players — the captain of the team, Rustam Yergali, Rustam Murzagaliev, Alexander Zhigulin, Maxim Marchuk, Dmitriy Gavrilov and Vadim Scherbak, our newcomers Ruslan Aitkali, Askar Maydekin, Ismail Bimendin and of course, new Kazakh citizen — Anthony Clemmons.
