Onuralp Bitim – a Superstar in the making

We need to take a step back and understand that Onuralp Bitim and where he comes from. The son of Mustafa Kemal Bitim and the nephew of Mehmet Bitim both long-time basketball journeymen that have impacted Turkish basketball in the 80s and the 90s. Onuralp has managed to carve a very nice career for himself till now with Euroleague and Turkish BSL team Anadolu Efes – a player development factory in itself.

Onuralp listed at 1,98 and usually plays as a shooting guard but has very high ball-handling and passing skills that make him a formidable asset.
