Coming into EuroBasket, Naimy is already an established player in European Basketball. It's his third consecutive EuroBasket but his first two were in a very limited role. Yet his 5.3 points-per-game on just 9.7 minutes-per-game in the previous championship already showed his capabilities at the highest level. He brought this form back to club level this past season, delivering 10.1 points-per-game in only 21.7 minutes-per-game for Triumph in the Eurocup behind 47.2% shooting from the arc. With both Ohayon and Mekel acting as floor generals, Israel will need Naimy's ability as a scoring point guard at times as well. For someone who started his career in the second division in Israel and step by step climbed up to where he is now, Naimy will bring to EuroBasket 2013 his fresh approach and hope to continue his good performances domestic action in Russia.
