The newest episode of The Crossover with Joe Arlauckas spotlights a relatively new face on the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague scene, one whose level of commitment both on and off the court has already made him an example of true professionalism at the tender age of 26. 

Anthony Gill’s rookie performance helped Khimki Moscow Region make the playoffs for the first time last season, impressing everyone. Even while he’s been injured through parts of this season, Gill’s concept of being a pro both in the gym and in the community make him stand out even more. 

From partial paralysis at birth to his mother’s battle with cancer to losing his first pro contract due after a failed medical test, Gill has faced his own setbacks, yet he draws inspiration from people he seeks out in the Moscow region who are struggling more than most.
