In memoriam of Juan Antonio Samaranch, IOC Honorary President

( para la Versión en Español= Ver a Continuación )

It is with great sadness that FIBA today learned of the passing of International Olympic Committee (IOC) Honorary President Juan Antonio Samaranch, who presided over the organisation for more than two decades (1980-2001), becoming one of the most recognisable figures in world sport. He was 89.

During his time at the head of the IOC, Samaranch oversaw a large number of changes within the Olympic Movement and the sporting world as a whole, being brought to deal with the increasing weight of commercialism within sport as well as issues such as professionalism at the Games.

Among his many achievements, he can be credited with the creation of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) and also oversaw the inclusion of the first female IOC Members.

Prior to his involvement with the IOC, Samaranch – who was born in Barcelona in 1920 – pursued a successful diplomatic career that saw him hold the offices of Spanish ambassador to the Soviet Union and Mongolia.

Heading the Spanish delegations at several Olympic games, he went on to become Spanish Secretary for Sports and President of the Spanish National Olympic Committee.

In 1980 he replaced Lord Killanin to become the seventh president of the IOC, a seat he held until 2001. In recognition of his services to sport, he was given the title of Honorary President.

FIBA Secretary General and IOC Member Patrick Baumann said: “This is a very sad day. President Samaranch’s contributions to world sport and basketball have been priceless, not only during his time at the head of the IOC, but throughout a life largely dedicated to sport.”

“He and FIBA Secretary General Emeritus Borislav Stankovic worked tightly together to bring professional basketball to the Olympic Games, which has largely improved the level of competition at this event, while substantially increasing interest in it. Accordingly, the game of basketball has grown at all levels, which has benefited the sport as a whole.”

“I speak on behalf of FIBA in sending my sincerest sympathies and condolences to his family and his many friends. He will be sorely missed.”


En memoria de Juan Antonio Samaranch, Presidente Honorario del COI

La Federación Internacional de Baloncesto (FIBA) mostró su "tristeza" por el fallecimiento hoy del presidente de honor del Comité Olímpico Internacional, Juan Antonio Samaranch.

   "Es un día muy triste. Las contribuciones de Samaranch al deporte mundial y al baloncesto no tienen precio, no sólo en el tiempo en el que estuvo al frente del COI. Le echaremos mucho de menos", aseguró Patrick Baumann, secretario general de FIBA y miembro del Comité Olímpico Internacional.  

   Así, el suizo recordó la importancia del directivo catalán para el baloncesto. "Samaranch y Borislav Stankovic trabajaron muy fuerte para traer el baloncesto profesional a los Juegos Olímpicos, mejorando el nivel de la competición y aumentando así su interés", destacó Baumann, que en nombre de FIBA quiso enviar sus "condolencias a la familia y a los muchos amigos" de Samaranch.

"Juan Antonio Samaranch ha fallecido a las 13h25 el día 21 de abril de 2010 como consecuencia de una parada cardiorrespiratoria", informó el hospital Quirón barcelonés en un breve comunicado, firmado por el doctor Rafael Esteban Mur, director del Servicio de Medicina Interna.

Hombre de influencia, Samaranch ha sido uno de los españoles más conocidos de los últimos 30 años. "Desde sus muchas cualidades, quiero destacar, en primer lugar, la de español universal, que ha brillado con luz propia en la primera fila de un escenario auténticamente mundial", describió de Samaranch el rey Juan Carlos I de España, en el prólogo del libro "Memorias olímpicas", que escribiera el presidente de honor del COI.

Nacido el 17 de julio de 1920 en Barcelona en una rica familia de industriales del textil, trabajó primero en la empresa familiar. Como deportista amateur, organizó en Barcelona en 1951 los primeros campeonatos del mundo de rink-hockey (hockey sobre patines de ruedas) y consiguió la victoria del equipo español, en lo que fue un éxito que le valió el reconocimiento del dictador Francisco Franco, del que fue admirador.

El régimen franquista le nombró delegado nacional de Educación física y de deportes entre 1966 y 1977. Diplomado del Instituto Superior de Ciencias Empresariales de Barcelona, Samaranch pasó a ser profesor de economía y consejero en el sector bancario, convirtiéndose en presidente de la Caja de Ahorros Provincial de la Diputación de Barcelona, antes de ocupar desde 1987 a 1999 la presidencia de la potentísima caja de ahorros "La Caixa" de Cataluña.

Miembro del COI desde 1966, Samaranch fue el primer embajador de España en Moscú (1977-1980) tras la reanudación de las relaciones diplomáticas con la URSS.

Jefe de protocolo del COI de 1968 a 1975, y de 1979 a 1980, fue nombrado para la comisión ejecutiva en 1970 y desempeñó el cargo de vicepresidente entre 1974 a 1978 antes de acceder a la presidencia en 1980, para la que fue reelegido en tres ocasiones (1989, 1993 y 1997), antes de dejar el cargo en 2001.

En 1991, el rey Juan Carlos I de España lo nombró marqués de Samaranch por su trabajo en favor del movimiento olímpico y la atribución de los Juegos de 1992 a Barcelona, que supuso su momento más glorioso.

Los Juegos de Barcelona 92 cosecharon algunos de los mejores resultados del deporte español y Samaranch no dudo en calificarlos de "los mejores de la historia".

Viudo de María Teresa Salisachs-Rowe, fallecida el 16 de septiembre de 2000, heredera de una gran dinastía catalana de la industria textil, Samaranch es padre de un hijo, Juan Antonio, miembro del Comité Olímpico Español (COE) y del COI desde julio de 2001, y de una hija, María Teresa.

Su fin de presidencia estuvo marcado por varios problemas de salud.

En julio de 2001 fue hospitalizado en Lausana a los 81 años por una "fatiga extrema" tras el congreso del COI en Moscú. El día anterior había anunciado en la capital rusa la elección de su sucesor, el belga Jacques Rogge, tres días después de designar a Pekín sede de los Juegos de 2008.

En agosto de 2001 tuvo complicaciones agudas de hipertensión arterial debido a "un enorme esfuerzo antes y después" del congreso de Moscú, y fue hospitalizado en Barcelona.

En diciembre de 2007 volvió a ser hospitalizado en Madrid por una subida de tensión.

Samaranch, presidente vitalicio de honor del COI, no ahorró esfuerzos para volver a traer los Juegos a España de nuevo, pero su apoyo no bastó para otorgar a Madrid la sede de estos ni para 2012, que serán en Londres, ni para 2010, que se celebrarán en Río de Janeiro.

“We are cooperating with FIBA on that as we have for many years and we hope to see the competition of national teams continue to grow.”

Many of the league’s biggest stars will be at the FIBA World Championship this summer, including Team USA, which will have an entire roster of NBA players.

Most of the national teams will have current or former NBA players on their rosters in Turkey.

As for NBA Europe Live, the following games will be played:

Greece women take important steps in basketball

Greece are eager to build on the success of last year’s EuroBasket Women campaign in Latvia when they shocked nearly everyone with a fifth-place finish.

The ramifications were huge because the Greeks claimed the last spot on offer for the FIBA World Championship for Women.

Evina Maltsi led the Greek team and was so prolific that she was voted MVP of the EuroBasket.

It was a team effort from start to finish for the Greeks, though.

Dimitra Kalentzou was the point guard of the Greek side and is now on the books of Sony Athinaikos, a team she has helped lead to the EuroCup Women Final.

She spoke to FIBA.

FIBA: Dimitra, the FIBA World Championship for Women isn’t that far away. Greece will play the United States, France and Senegal. This must be something you are very excited about.

Dimitra Kalentzou: Of course I am looking forward to the FIBA World Championship because it is a dream that came true last summer and we will participate in this in September. We don't have the chance every day to play against the United States.

FIBA: How has the success of the national team and now, the winning streak that has put your club side Athinaikos in the EuroCup Women Final, helped women’s basketball in Greece?

Dimitra Kalentzou: For sure it has been helpful because a lot of people right now know more about women's basketball in Greece. The Greek national team during the summer and now my team, Athinaikos, are helping the Greek basketball fans to understand that the progress in women's basketball has been very big the last three years.

FIBA: Your Sony Athinaikos coach, George Dikeoulakos, was an assistant last summer for the Greece women’s team. He says that you have a very high I.Q. Does that mean that one day, you will coach basketball?

Dimitra Kalentzou: "Thank you, Coach.” Right now, I am a basketball player and I am trying to think this way. It is impossible for me to predict the future, but I am positive in this idea.




FIBA: What will the main goal be for Greece in the Czech Republic?

Dimitra Kalentzou: We play against the Olympic champions, European Champions and the African Champions. It's going to be very difficult for us, but we proved that we can manage hard situations like this. Our aim will be to go to the next phase.

Where did all these point guards come from?

Around the time Shaquille O'Neal roamed this earth with absolute impunity, we would ask, wistfully, "where have all the big men gone?" This was not a really bad, basketball-related Kinks parody, but a real question: At least in the collective imagination, once the population of competent seven-footers (or slightly below) in the NBA was stable, even flourishing.

Then abruptly -- and this is not in any way intended to detract from Shaq's achievements -- being Michael Olowokandi was enough to get you selected number one overall. The Hack-a-Shaq strategy may have been desperate and sad, but offering up these raw meat sacrifices wouldn't have been necessary if real centers had been on the roster in their place.

Of course, the gleaming coda to it all was that Shaq, and the Lakers, were brought down by Ben and Rasheed Wallace. These two Pistons proved that the best way to defend O'Neal was not with an equal or lesser traditional big man, but with new thinking.

Theories abounded as to why seven-footers had gone the way of Andesaurus Delgadoi. Kids all wanted to be Michael Jordan, meaning they grew up working on their handle, refused to bulk up (um, okay), and all turned out shorter. The more accurate answer would be "all turned into Kevin Garnett", which didn't happen much, or "all turned into Dirk Nowitzki", which took place overseas independent of these market forces. Oddly, the supreme seven-footer of the pre-Shaq period, Hakeem Olajuwan, was acclaimed for the wing-like agility he picked up playing soccer as a youth in Nigeria -- where, it should be added, he had little interest in a future in basketball.

That's Exhibit A. Exhibit B is far less controversial. Around the mid to late-nineties, all of a sudden true point guards -- as in, smart distributors who could get theirs while holding a team together -- were in short supply. They were replaced on the map of basketball species by the dreaded combo guard, or venom-ed point.

Allen Iverson, Stephon Marbury and Steve Francis were the patron saints, but as much as it pains me to say so, Jamal Crawford and Gilbert Arenas (however redemptive he once was) belong to this wave. As did young Chauncey Billups, Mo Williams, Mike Bibby, Monta Ellis, and so on. Terrell Brandon faded out piteously, and Jason Williams, he was the old way regurgitated back in its own face. As a Maverick, even Steve Nash fell victim this syndrome. Everyone wanted to be Jordan, or something. Plenty didn't make it pro as a result. This, my friends, is how Darrell Armstrong, Jacques Vaughn, and Mark Jackson stuck around the league so long, and why Dwyane Wade was doubted.

So we have two currents in history, presumably flowing into the league from the outside: Fewer big men of note, and fewer pure point guards. No wonder everyone was so bummed. Now, let's glance at the present: We have an embarrassment of point guard riches. The paradox: They are no longer a rare commodity at the exact moment at which they have become most prized.

To stress this again, even if it bores the 'brows right off of you: The Class of 2009 boasts totally excellent PGs Brandon Jennings, Darren Collison, Ty Lawson, and putatively, Ricky Rubio. Tyreke Evans, Stephen Curry, Rodrigue Beaubois, Jonny Flynn, cannot be hailed as "pure", but their scorers' fervor by no means hampers their playmaking ability. This is the combo guard brought back from the brink. And we've yet to really see with Jrue Holiday or Eric Maynor can do, but signs are encouraging.

And already, across the league, there was Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Russell Westbrook, Steve Nash, Rajon Rondo, Tony Parker, Derrick Rose, Devin Harris, and Andre Miller.

If you're out of breath just from reading that, or skipped much, I think I've done my job. Oh, and standing atop this year's mock drafts despite his shameful loss in some amateur shin-dig over the weekend, John Wall is the grand prize in this upcoming lottery. Don't believe the backlash: Wall is a transformative force and then some, as you saw any time that Memphis Kentucky bothered to push the tempo and let their freshman guard work with the slightest bit of space. So fine, he was smothered and died, and given the quality of his teammates, that means he's vulnerable in the pros. Maybe sound logic if everyone/anyone else had pulled their weight. Downgrade John Wall at your own peril.

If that sounded like a crazy old lady trying to remember all her grandchildren, or the names of the gnomes that litter her front lawn (which is, naturally, on a major highway), it's because that's how crazy things have gotten. I don't know what the definition of a commodity is, or how much it depends on a balance between supply and demand, but we are facing the strange problem of too many sound, effective, even star-like PGs currently populating the league. The question: Is this like when the big men vanished, and has something happened to artificially generate this bunch?

I'm glad you asked. Shaky as it is, it seems as if this represents a backlash against the likes of Iverson and Marbury. Iverson, at least, is still beloved. And yet youngsters saw what a hard road he had to hoe, all because he refused to play the position he was built for. The timing doesn't work out exactly right, but then again, we're talking about some epiphany (brought on by a coach? relative? trusted adviser?) that lead these kids to see that they needed to take the PG's responsibilities seriously. In some cases, this is a stretch.

I've heard that Curry is now contending with Evans for ROY; okay, I can't argue with the wind. Regardless, that Curry went from "shooter learning the position" to "his own scoring man" to "and yet can feed with the best of them" shows that, even if it's been a learning process, Curry ended up learning how to be the guy that threw passes in Nellie-ball. Kind of like Stephen Jackson before him. There's a difference between defying the role and trying to make peace with it.

But do we really want to ascribe this shift in positional ranks to the free will of teenagers? We have also, over the last few years, seen a shift (supposedly) from the paint out to the perimeter -- or, in other words, the point guard can now be as important as the big man when it comes to building a franchise. Looking at the Hornets or Suns, it's hard to not see where this thinking comes from.

Then again, didn't they change some rules at some point to enable zone and encourage ball movement, open shots, and faster play? I forgot exactly what happened, but its the changes in defensive standards that seem to have had the most pronounced effect. As has been said a million times over, speedy guards can now go to town. No one could touch them before, and now they really can't. If the crossover is as much about creating space as showing off, this provided a built-in move. As Ziller put it, the rules provided Nash with a crossover. All of a sudden, he had that much more space around him to see the floor, or start winding toward the basket.

The question remains, though, why so many point guards? The explosive production of rookie Marcus Thornton has shown that scorers, as much as point guards like his teammate Darren Collison, can produce speaking-in-tongues numbers when no one expected. There is, strictly speaking, no reason that someone from the previous, benighted generation wouldn't have been able to increase their impact under the new rules.

The point is, then, that even with Evans, or Curry (you can make whatever you want of Nellie-ball stats, frankly), there's an ethical imperative to mind the distributor, or at least shaper-of-possession, part of playing the one. That, as much as the rules, accounts for the rabbitz-like explosion of PGs. Is there a video game called Rabbitz?

It's entirely possible that whoever draws the Number of John Wall in the lottery may already feel set at that position. Still, unless that team is Utah or New Orleans, they still have to pull the trigger. Otherwise, they face the equivalent of passing on Michael Jordan because of Clyde Drexler as the Age of the Point Guard reaches its zenith. Two point-guard line-ups are possible, maybe even for Jerry Sloan.




The Hornets alone could justify a pass, if only because Paul is heavenly, Collison the ideal back-up, and Wall an unknown factor. That team needs to return to prominence, and any number of other highly-rated prospects in 2010 could help get them there. Point guards are somehow at a premium even as they fall from the sky, but this can only continue for so much longer. Then again, the Twin Towers didn't do so badly for themselves. Nor did -- watch me now -- Pau Gasol and a hobbled Andrew Bynum last spring.

Question-and-answer with USA Basketball’s Jerry Colangelo

A month after the announcement of USA Basketball’s new national pool of players, Jerry Colangelo, national director for USA Basketball and the former owner of the Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury, was able to squeeze in some time for an interview with the BusinessMirror.

BusinessMirror: How does USA Basketball keep its National Basketball Association (NBA) players focused on team play, winning and the competition when on international duty? After the gold medal in Beijing, how do you prevent any letdown in intensity and focus?

Jerry Colangelo: All of the USA team members are professionals, and so competing to win, while focusing on playing as a team and setting aside personal goals are things that are part of their lives every time they step on the court. A question I’m often asked is about managing all the players’ egos and I can honestly state it has never been a problem because our players are aware that they are representing more than themselves or their professional teams. They know they are playing for their country, which is the highest honor for an athlete. We also are very fortunate to have a very talented coaching staff, led by Duke University’s Hall of Fame head coach Mike Krzyzewski. The players respect coach K and he has a special ability of connecting with the players and getting buy-in from them. The composition of the USA Basketball teams for 2010-12 will be different than it was in 2008, just as the teams in 2006 and 2007 that represented the United States in various Fiba or Fiba Americas competitions were different than the 2008 Olympic Team.

Each team develops its own chemistry and character, and while we have the entire coaching staff from the 2006-08 USA National Team back and some of the players from 2006-08 back as well, it will still take time for the players to find their roles and to play as a team. We do not expect any letdown. We all know 2008 was a great experience and an accomplishment to be proud of, but that is in the past now. We’re starting the building of another USA Basketball national team all over again, and the fact that the United States has not won a World Championship since 1994 is not lost on anyone involved with the 2010-12 USA Basketball national team.

BusinessMirror: Is it difficult to persuade an NBA player to be in the national pool? How do you account for fatigue because of the long NBA season?

Jerry Colangelo: I haven’t found it to be difficult to secure commitments from NBA players. You have to accept that there will be injuries and personal issues for some of the players. But we’re fortunate to have a tremendous pool of gifted players to be able to choose from. In building the 2006-08 national team, we were able to change the program’s atmosphere and its perception in a positive way. Thanks to the commitment of the 33 players who were part of our 2006-08 national team, it again became a prestigious and a desirable thing to the players to be part of. The players know what an honor it is to be selected to the USA team and to represent their country, and they also understand the commitment that has to be made if we are going to be successful. Most players in the NBA have reached that level because they are gifted and because they are extremely competitive. They love playing against the best and certainly the Olympics and World Championships present an opportunity to represent your country and play with and against the best players from around the world.

BusinessMirror: After Beijing, what countries look to offer the toughest competition to the US and why? What has Team USA learned from the past Tournament of the Americas and the Olympics in terms of playing the international brand of basketball and their skills improvement?

Jerry Colangelo: With a field of 24 teams competing in the World Championship there are a number of teams that should be considered medal contenders in 2010. Spain, Argentina, Greece, Lithuania, Croatia, Brazil and Serbia are all excellent teams and there are any number of other teams that are also capable of putting a run together to win the World Championship. What makes this World Championship such an exciting competition is the format. From the Eight-Finals through the quarterfinals, semifinals and the championship game, it’s whoever is best that day and we know there are many teams that possess the talent required to win on any given night. And that’s all it takes, being the best on that one night. These aren’t the best-of -three or best-of-seven series. These are a series of sudden-death games where only the winner lives on to compete for the gold medal. The primary obstacles the US faces whenever it fields a team in international competition are becoming a team, determining each player’s role on the team and becoming familiar with the style of international basketball. It takes time to build a team and many of the other national teams that we will face have the advantage of having played together for years. Also, the international basketball style is different than the NBA style and what many of our players are used to. The games are shorter than NBA games, and the passion of the players and their fans can make games electrifying.

BusinessMirror: How fun is it to be at the helm of USA Basketball?

Jerry Colangelo: I’ve enjoyed my experiences with USA Basketball, it has been tremendously rewarding. It was rewarding in 2006-08 when I served as managing director of the USA Basketball men’s mational team and had the opportunity to start and build a men’s national team program. It was gratifying to rebuild the men’s national team and see USA teams capture gold at the 2007 Fiba Americas Championship and the 2008 Olympics. I also take a great deal of satisfaction in seeing NBA stars once again really wanting to be part of the national team program, taking pride in representing their country, and in our teams doing so many positive things on the court for the sport of basketball and off the court as well.

Now that I have been elected chairman of the 2009-12 USA Basketball board of directors, I’m enjoying having the opportunity to be involved with all of the USA Basketball teams, men’s and women’s teams at the national, collegiate and developmental levels. Our women’s program is remarkable. Our women are ranked No. 1 in the world by Fiba, they’ve won 63 of their last 64 games in major international competitions and they’ve won an amazing four consecutive Olympic gold medals. USA Basketball has a tremendously successful tradition for its men’s and women’s teams and I’m looking forward to working with USA Basketball’s CEO/Executive Director Jim Tooley, his staff, and all of the coaches and players who will play for USA Basketball teams over the next couple of years and continuing to build on those successes.




BusinessMirror: Can you tell us what is so far your most memorable moment in your tenure with USA Basketball?

Jerry Colangelo: There honestly have been many. Obviously, defeating Spain in that great gold-medal game in Beijing at the Olympics was very memorable. So was seeing the joy on the faces of our players and coaches who had put in three summers of work. Recapturing the Olympic gold for the United States was incredible rewarding experience, but so, too, was seeing our program build over the three years and finish up by playing a beautiful game. Also, seeing the USA men and women teams win Olympic gold is quite an achievement. All of the players involved not only played basketball at a very high level, but they respected the game and represented themselves and their country in an exemplary manner and I’m very proud of that. There are also a lot of other special memories—our numerous interactions with members of the US Armed Forces, the many great people we meet during our travels. As I said, I have a lot of great memories from the past four years and I’m sure we’re going to have many more.
