Club icon Rickey Paulding said goodbye to his own fans at his last home game for basketball Bundesliga club Ewe Baskets Oldenburg.
The American, who left Lower Saxony at the end of the season, contributed 18 points in the 113: 87 (63:38) against S.Oliver Würzburg.
“It was more emotional than I expected. When I started my career, I would never have thought that something like this could happen,” said the 39-year-old, who brought his family to the floor after the game and with the 6000 spectators “Rickey Paulding” speech choirs celebrated at “Magenta icon Rickey”.
The fans of the Baskets recognized her idol with a big choreo. A huge banner with the imprint “15 years of loyalty – threesome, dunks and passion. Thank you Ricey” adorned the opposite before the game. The encounter was less important in terms of icon Rickey. The 2009 master already has the relegation, the Würzburgers miss the playoffs.
