Tal Brody, the famous former basketball player, is announcing today that he will take place in the coming Likud primary, attempting to gain a seat in the next Knesset.

Brody is most notably known for his words at the end of the historic match between Maccabi Tel Aviv and CSKA Moscow:

We are on the map! And we are staying on the map, not only in sports, but in everything.

Brody made Aliyah some 44 years ago, although he still retains a heavy American accent. He had served in both the US Army and the IDF.

Being a total newbie to Israeli politics, it’ll be interesting to see whether Brody can manage to leave his mark on the political map.
