Glad to see him doing well overseas. I think the best is yet to come for him too.

The Israel National League is the second division in Israel. The first tier division - the Israeli Premier League - isn't very good itself (not amoung the top 15 leagues in Europe), so that tells you something about the 2nd division. But at least the top division has a few teams that can compete in the international leagues (EuroLeague, EuroCup, FIBA Champions League). The two meaningful clubs in Israel are Maccabi Tel Aviv (EuroLeague club), Hapoel Jerusalem B.C. (EuroCup) and Hapoel Tel Aviv.
Lots of familiar American names on Maccabi if you care to look.

Not trying to throw shade - just giving perspective. At least he is getting paid to play (hopefully)! Most guys have to start low and work their way up....
