Julian Khazzouh's arrival to Lebanon in 2012 in a historic deal by Sagesse Club was a surprise to many, but his departure this week left onlookers flabbergasted as to its timing, style and possible repercussions.His departure came just a few hours before the start of Thursday's game, and his team nearly paid the price before triumphing in the final seconds 87-82 against Homenetmen to lead the best-of-five quarterfinal series 1-0 . What was Khazzouh thinking when he decided to leave behind a prodigious contract with Sagesse?Was Khazzouh convinced that not representing the national team would effectively end his career in the Lebanese league, thus hastening his decision to flee?In 18 games this season Khazzouh had recorded impressive stats of 15.4 points, 9.5 rebounds (seventh in the league), 2 assists and 1.7 blocks (third in the league).
