The Breogán-Unicaja this Thursday at 8:30 p.m. at the Pazo dos Deportes in Lugo, corresponding to matchday 28 of the Endesa League Regular Phase, will be very special for Tyler Kalonoski. The North American player visits what was his home last season, when the forward wore the Breogán shirt from Lugo, becoming one of the most loved players by the Breogan fans.
Together with the now Real Madrid player dzanan muse, Kalinoski formed one of the most decisive foreign couples in Spanish basketball in the 2021/2022 Endesa League. Precisely That great level of play that Tyler showed in the “Breo” was the one that caught the attention of the compositor rectors and Ibon Navarro, who decided to bet on him to be one of the new faces in the reconstruction that Unicaja made of its project last summer.
As happened just a few days ago, when Musa’s Real Madrid played at the Pazo dos Deportes, the “Peña Breogán” published a tweet this Monday calling on the Lugo fans to give Kalinoski a great welcome this Thursday: “A few days ago days we live a very emotional day with the return of Dzanan Musa and we want it to be the same with the return home of Tyler Kalinoski.This Thursday at 8:30 p.m. in the Pazo, Breogán against Unicaja, current ACB Cup champion.Now it’s your turn to you, Tyler”, read the tweet of one of the main animation groups of Breogán.
The truth is that Kalinoski left a very good memory in Lugo, in sports and human terms, despite spending only a few months in the capital of Lugo. Coming from Basket Brescia Leonessa of Italian basketball, Breogán was the Ohio forward’s first experience in the Endesa League. He went from less to more during the past season, finishing with brilliant numbers in 33 games: 11.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists and a PIR of 10.5, with an outstanding 47% shooting from three-pointers (the 3rd best percentage of the entire competition).
When his signing for Unicaja became official, on July 8, there were innumerable expressions of affection that the player received on social networks from those who had been his fans.. That affection will be the one that he will experience in first person this Thursday when his name is pronounced in the presentation of Unicaja, prior to the game. That will be when Tyler Kalinoski will realize that his fans last year are still devoted to his figure and to that basketball with which he helped Breogán sign a great 21/22 season and achieve their goals.
