Title: Italy - Bargnani ready as Italy prepare for ‘group of death’

Italy - Bargnani ready as Italy prepare for ‘group of death’

Andrea Bargnani would prefer to compete for a world title this summer.

Instead, he’ll have to settle for being the talisman in the Azzurri squad when Simone Pianigiani’s men attempt to qualify for EuroBasket 2011 in Lithuania.

Bargnani held a press conference in Rome to remove any doubts about his availability this summer.

“We are going through a difficult time and I feel that responsibility but there's also the willingness to return to enjoy myself having an important role at international level,” he said.

Italy received a wild card to play at the 2006 FIBA World Championship and advanced from the Preliminary Round, but they failed to reach the Quarter-Finals of EuroBasket 2007 in Spain, which knocked them out of contention for a spot at the 2008 Olympics.

They also didn’t qualify for EuroBasket 2009 in Poland.

The Italians will take on Latvia, Israel, Montenegro and Finland in a Division A ‘group of death’ this summer.

Sitting alongside Italian Basketball Federation president Dino Meneghin, Bargnani said: "I didn't need to be convinced by Dino Meneghin or by coach Simone Pianigiani.

"My decision (to play) has been spontaneous at a time when Italian basketball is going through a period of an ugly crisis.”

Italy have been a hugely important team on the international stage over the years, but Bargnani says no side deserves to have anything given to it.

"It's right that this new cycle brings the Azzurri back to the level it merits,” he said.

As far as the intentions of his Toronto teammate, Marco Belinelli, Bargnani said: "Belinelli? I cannot speak for him, but I obviously hope that he also returns to the national team."




The other player in the NBA Italy would like to have is Danilo Gallinari of the New York Knicks.

Injuries have kept him out of action for the Italians dating back to before EuroBasket 2007 in Spain.

Italy will play eight games in three weeks as they attempt to reach EuroBasket 2011 in Lithuania.

Title: European Basketball: Is Rubio going to be the next star out of Europe?
Post by: eurocoach on Jun 02, 2010, 11:37:52 PM

Is Rubio going to be the next star out of Europe?

Merhaba! Yes, you may hear it all before, but it's undeniable that this kid out of Spain could be elevating himself to a legitimate star if he succeeds in the World Championships this year.

The 19-year old (!) point guard already proved to belong to the best by winning the Euroleague-title a month ago and his team Regal FC Barcelona is also on route to be crowned champions of the domestic league.

Now the sole question is, will be Ricky able to lead the Spaniards to a surprising win over the heavily-favored U.S. Americans?

If he does, even without the support of Pau Gasol, then Ricky should be considered as the next big star out of Europe following the footsteps of players such as Drazen Petrovic, Dirk Nowitzki, Tony Parker or Dejan Bodiroga.

His next goal would have to be winning the NBA-title to prove doubters wrong. Compared by many to legendary "Pistol" Pete Maravich, the speedy Catalan is acting calm and relaxed under the circumstances given.

Needless to say, that he loves being at home surrounded and protected by his family in Catalonia after turning down to play for the troubled Minnesota Timberwolves in the NBA and opted instead to join Barca to snatch "Euroleague Rising Star" honors this year.

With a backcourt consisting of Barcelona-teammate Juan Carlos Navarro and Rubio, along with NBA-center Marc Gasol, NBA-guard Rudy Fernandez and charismatic forward Jorge Garbajosa, the Spaniards should be having no problems to advance at least to the quarter-finals if not the final itself.




The month of August and the World Champs are just two months away, but after checking out the highlights of Ricky on the videos below, I wish they would start within some minutes.










I'm out like doubters.

Title: London 2012 Olympics the goal for GB: Luol Deng returns in EuroBasket qualifiers

London 2012 Olympics the goal for GB as Luol Deng
returns in EuroBasket qualifiers

Luol Deng, having been prevented from appearing in the warm-up matches by an insurance dispute with the NBA and the Chicago Bulls, finally reappears for Great Britain tonight as they kick off their qualifying campaign for the 2011 European Championships against Hungary in Szolnok.

Luol Deng will return for Great Britain's basketball team against Hungary in the Eurobasket qualifiers that will determine whether the team plays at

Deng, who averaged nearly 18 points and six rebounds a game for the Bulls last season, last appeared for Great Britain during their successful EuroBasket 2009 qualifying campaign but was forced to miss the finals in Poland with a stress fracture of the leg.

His reassuring presence is timely because Great Britain face a tricky qualifying tournament, playing eight matches in the next three weeks with home and away fixtures against Hungary, Ukraine, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Macedonia.

GB go into the tournament without the injured or resting trio of Joel Freeland, Rob Archibald and Andrew Betts who have been outstanding in recent seasons while the debut of the Detroit Pistons' Ben Gordon has been delayed again after he failed to recover from ankle surgery.

On a more positive note Pops Mensah-Bonsu has been able to attend the training camp and warm-up matches and a clutch of Britain's most promising talents - Matthew Bryan-Amaning, Ashley Hamilton, Justin Robinson, Dan Clark and Ogo Adegboye - are about to get an extended campaign to prove their worth.

"We still have a strong squad and it's the best opportunity some of the young players will ever have to step up and become part of that Olympic dream," said coach Chris Finch. "We have nucleus of players who have been on the programme for the last three years or so and the new talent coming in can provide fresh impetus. They played with a lot of excitement in our warm-up games.

"If we had everybody available I would say we would be strong favourites to qualify automatically - certainly we would be the scalp others would looking for - but it's probably a bit more even now. We have got a big job to do but I am enjoying the way things are coming together."

"I'm not the slightest bit worried by the interesting road trips we have. We have lived on the road for the last three years, it's part of what we are and we have produced some very good performances and results under pressure in hostile arenas. I see that as a positive."

For every other team sport at the London 2012 Olympics Great Britain have been granted an automatic right to field a side but basketball's world governing body FIBA are making life as difficult as possible for the new kids on the block.

In fairness there are probably 15-20 teams who fancy they might just have a shout at a medal in the 12-team Olympic tournament so a place in the competition is highly prized and not given away lightly.

FIBA have already moved the goalposts once, however, going back on a previous assurance that reaching last year's European Championship Finals in Poland would be deemed sufficient evidence of Great Britain's "competiveness". There, weakened by injury, they lost all three games in a 'Group of Death' but did lead world champions and subsequent European champions Spain with less than three minutes to go. GB were nothing if not competitive.

"We need to know that the basketball family in the UK has a clear view of where it wants to go when the Games are finished," said FIBA secretary Patrick Baumann recently. "How is the game going to be structured? What are they going to be doing over the next four to eight years to make themselves competitive with other nations? If these things come together, there's no reason why GB should not be at the Olympic Games."

Which all seems a bit beyond FIBA's brief. This is the Olympics, not the world championships which is their fiefdom. And the last time the Olympics was held in a non Basketball nation - South Korea in 1988 - the hosts were included from the off and aquitted themselves with honour in both the men's and women's competitions.

Finch is well aware of the bigger picture. "We have got three plans running concurrently. There is the 2010 plan - qualify for the European Championships and secure Olympic inclusion. There is 2012 itself and our target of a quarter-final place and then there is 2016 and beyound when we want Great Britain to be genuine medal contenders in all major competitions."

Title: EuroBasket & European Tournaments: The draw for EuroBasket 2011 maps out tough routes to medals and Olympics

The draw for EuroBasket 2011 maps out tough routes to medals and Olympics

The draw for EuroBasket 2011 took place at the National Drama Theatre in Vilnius on Sunday evening with tournament hosts Lithuania being drawn in the same group as Spain.

With only two automatic Olympic places and three to four Olympic Qualifying spots on offer, a top five or six* finish will be essential for any team with Olympic ambitions.

(http://eba-stats.com/images/eventos/EuroBasket-2011.jpg)

But making it beyond the first round, from which only the top three of each group qualify, will be a challenge in itself for some of the countries with big ambitions and strong basketball pedigrees.

Group A looks especially daunting, with defending Champions Spain drawn alongside World Championship silver and bronze medallists Turkey and Lithuania.

Great Britain, who should now be able to count on at least two NBA stars, are seen as the dark horse in the group, while Poland and an additional qualifier complete the lineup.

Some have already singled out group A as the 'group of death', but the strength of European basketball is such that none of the other three groups will leave respective players, fans and coaches particularly comfortable.

Some of the most talented young players in World Basketball will be on show in group B, with Serbia, France and Germany headlining the show.

Israel, Italy and Latvia will provide stiff competition, and will hope to do more than just battle it out between them for the fourth and final second round ticket.

Group C has a distinct regional flavour to it, with all but the as yet unknown qualifier hailing from the Balkan peninsula.

European heavyweights Greece are joined by Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia & Herzegovina and FYR Macedonia with the second of the three additional qualifiers completing the lineup.

Russia and Slovenia look to be the heavy favourites in group D where they are joined by Belgium, Bulgaria, Georgia and Ukraine.

The Additional Qualifying Round will be disputed by Finland, Hungary and Portugal.




*The number of European Olympic Qualify places will be three if Great Britain are awarded an automatic place in London, otherwise it will be four. The decision will be made by the FIBA Central Board on 12-13 March 2011.

Title: Tonight Euroleague Finals Game 3 and Tucker sees how coaches come and go • Esta Noche Euroliga Finales Partido 3
Post by: coach_C on Mar 30, 2011, 02:08:27 AM
EuroBasket & European Basketball Tournaments Analysis • Análisis Torneos Europeos de Baloncesto y Eurobasket


Tucker sees how coaches come and go

If Real Madrid guard Clay Tucker has learned anything the past few weeks, it's that coaching is a volatile profession.

The 30-year-old guard watched one of the best coaches in Europe, Ettore Messina, walk out the Madrid door at the beginning of the month and on Monday, Tucker’s friend and former University of Wisconsin-Green Bay coach, Bruce Pearl, was fired by the Tennessee Volunteers.

Players come and go, and so do the men that lead them.

Pearl, who turned the Vols into one of the best teams in the SEC, endeared himself to his players and students at Tennessee with a gung-ho attitude that was impossible to dislike.

More than anything, he got people excited about men’s basketball at Tennessee, a school best known for a powerhouse football program and a rich tradition in women’s basketball.

Handed the reins five years ago, Pearl went 145-61 with Tennessee.

He made headlines off the court, too.

Pearl, with his players, once showed up at a women's basketball game with his body painted orange.

For that night, Pearl was like any other fan on the Tennessee campus, rooting on women’s coach Pat Summitt and her nationally ranked team.

Pearl was known for something else after big wins.

He’d charge into the locker room and high-five his players.

Pearl was immortalized at Tennessee in a video that shows him running into the locker room after one big win when and ripping off his shirt and doing an Incredible Hulk imitation before hugging his players.

"Bruce is probably any player's ultimate dream coach," Tucker said.

"He's into the game, he brings energy.

"He's never negative no matter what the situation is.

"He keeps the team positive."

Pearl knew his stuff during the game, too, according to Tucker.

"On the X's and O's, he's perfect," Tucker said.

"He scouts like no other coach.

"He can tell you any out-of-bounds play that a team is going to run for a last-second shot, or early in the shot-clock.

"But for me, he's best at motivating his team to get ready to play."

Tucker thinks Pearl will be working again soon.

"It all depends on what his buyout was," Tucker said.

"I'm sure if something good comes along, he'll step up and take it."

If it was uncomfortable watching Pearl be shown the door by Tennessee, Tucker was much closer to an unexpected turn of events at Madrid.

Messina, with Madrid having qualified for the Euroleague quarter-finals, decided to leave the team after a heavy home defeat to Montepaschi Siena in the Top 16.

"It was shocking,” Tucker said.

“He came into the locker room after the game we'd lost here and told us.

"But we've moved on. We have to play as professionals and do our job."

Emanuele Molin, Messina’s long-time assistant, was put in charge of Madrid for the rest of the season.

Tucker did not go into the Valencia series in the best of shape.

He was hurt in Madrid’s weekend defeat to Unicaja Malaga but played through the pain barrier and appeared in both games.

Tucker winced on more than one occasion in Tuesday’s game.

“I was in terrible pain the other night, but it's no excuse,” he said.

“It's a physical sport.

“I tried to fight through it and help the team get the win. We got the win on Tuesday but we came up short the second time.”

On Thursday night, Valencia bounced back from the 71-65 defeat and won 81-75.

The two games against Valencia at the Caja Magica have reinforced Tucker’s belief that he is playing basketball at a very high level, a fact that might not be appreciated back in the United States.

A native of Ohio, Tucker said: “People back home don't understand how real basketball is in Europe. And in my opinion, it's a lot more serious.

“They take it more seriously than NBA basketball.

“In the NBA, they play 82 games and a lot of guys don't play until the fourth quarter of some games and then they really pick it up.

“And a lot of teams don't pick it up until play-off time.

“Here, every game counts. You have to bring it every game or you can come up short like we did today.”

Madrid and every one of the teams in the Euroleague quarter-finals are in the same situation.

Each best-of-five series is knotted at 1-1.

Tucker knows it’s going to be a real dogfight the rest of the way.

"Valencia is a great team,” he said.

“They struggled at the beginning of the year.

“They switched coaches (dismissed Manuel Hussein and appointed Svetislav Pesic), found their stride and they're playing excellent basketball on both ends of the floor.




"We knew coming in that they were going to give us their best shot. They did, they came out successful and now it's our time to go to Valencia to try and steal a game there.”

Games 3 and 4 will be played in Valencia TODAY and Thursday.

Title: EuroBasket and European Tournaments: Real Madrid vs Power Electronics Valencia Yesterday... Here come the batmen!
Post by: pregunton on Apr 09, 2011, 01:48:51 AM
EuroBasket & European Basketball Tournaments Analysis • Análisis Torneos Europeos de Baloncesto y Eurobasket

Here come the batmen!

At the beginning of the third quarter of the Euroleague quarter-final decider between Real Madrid and Power Electronics Valencia on Thursday night, an 11th player entered the game.

A bat began to dart this way and that, dipping as low as eye level for the players.

The ball flew through the air, but so did the bat.

Valencia's players might have believed that was a good sign for their team because the bat is the symbol of their city.

There are bats on manhole covers in Valencia, above the town hall, on team shirts - everywhere.

What they may not have realized, though, is the affinity Madrid's players have with that winged creature.

"That's our lucky bat," Clay Tucker said.

"We practiced with bats all week long.

"Once the bat came, I told everyone we were going to win."

So, while Manu Ginobili swatted a bat to the court while playing for San Antonio last season in an NBA game and earned the nickname Batman, there was no chance of his Argentina teammate, Real Madrid point guard Pablo Prigioni, doing the same.

Maybe the bat just wanted to be a part of history because Madrid wrote a famous chapter in theirs by beating Valencia 66-58 on Thursday to win the five-game series, 3-2, and reach the Final Four.

The last 10 minutes were something you won't soon forget, but would like to.

It was ugly.

Like an NFL game at Soldier Field in Chicago on a bitterly cold Sunday in January, it was a defensive struggle with the last period ending 8-7 in favor of Madrid.

All that mattered for Madrid was their victory.

It had been 15 years since the famous club had reached the Final Four.

The coach everyone expected to take Madrid to Barcelona was Ettore Messina, but he upped ship and left after a home demolition at the hands of Montepaschi Siena at the end of the Top 16.

The loss didn't impact Real Madrid in the standings as they had already clinched top spot, but Messina rightly pointed out that if fans are going to spend time and money to watch the team play, they deserve the best the players have to offer and against Montepaschi that night, maybe they hadn't given their best.

Messina's departure could have done two things.

It could have sent the club into a tailspin, or helped unify the players and fans, which is what he said he hoped would happen.

As the 3-2 series triumph over Valencia suggests, Messina's exit did the latter.

It brought everyone closer together.

"Messina's a great coach," said Tucker, one of the players left stunned by the coach's departure.

"He's a great person on and off the court and you can't take anything away from that.

"He made the decision to walk away from the team and we couldn't do anything about that.

"We respected his decision.

"But it did help us mentally in coming together as a team.

"With that happening, it prepared us for this (five-game series) and we were ready to get through it."

The man that deserves a lot of credit for Madrid reaching the Final Four is Emanuele Molin, Messina's longtime assistant.

Instead of leaving with his boss and good friend, Molin told Madrid he wanted to finish the job that Messina had started.

"It was a very strange situation for him," Tucker admitted.

"Messina and Molin had been together for what, 20 years?

"The one thing about Molin stepping in and taking his place, we kept the same system.

"Had another coach come in, it probably would have taken us a little bit more time to get used to it.

"So we were fortunate to have Molin step in."

One other thing that saved Madrid is the passion that exists at the club.

Madrid basketball is historically important, and you felt that during this entire five-game series.

They won two of the three games at the Caja Magica and also came from behind and won Game 3 at Valencia.

Everyone was at Game 5 on Thursday night, including club president Florentino Perez and football superstar Ronaldo.

The most important figures, though, were the banner-waving, drum-beating Madristas.

They created an awesome, ear-splitting atmosphere.

It was loud, intimidating.

The noise was continuous and gave the Madrid players a lift.

There were also the journalists of Madrid, some of whom Messina took a parting shot at when he left the club.

There were hugs in the mixed zone because those journalists had seen the basketball team play second fiddle to Barcelona for so many years.

"It made a huge difference," Tucker said.

"The fans really came out and supported us.

"We packed the house tonight and like you said, that ugly fourth quarter got us through."

At least one aim has been accomplished for the season.

Madrid has ended their long spell without a Final Four appearance.

"With the way this club is, and the surrounds, I'm amazed they haven't been to the Final Four in such a long time," Tucker said.




"But every team goes through a stretch where they don't get any championships, in the Super Cup or the ACB or getting to the Final Four.

"Now that we've got past that stage, it's up to us to go and try to win the Final Four."

Title: EuroBasket and European Tournaments: FIBA Clears Players Under Contract with the NBA to Play Abroad During Lockout
Post by: kevinpiter on Jul 30, 2011, 10:42:18 PM

FIBA clears NBA players to play abroad during lockout

FIBA has confirmed it will approve the transfer of players under contract with the NBA deciding to play for clubs of FIBA affiliated leagues during the on-going lockout.

During a lockout NBA players who continue to be under contract with an NBA team are free to play anywhere they want, whether for their national teams and/or for club teams.

If an NBA player requests to play for a club of a FIBA affiliated league, the NBA will not object but will state that the player will have to return to his NBA team as soon as the lockout ends. Consequently, FIBA will deliver a letter of clearance subject to the receipt of a declaration signed by the player, stating that he will return to his NBA team when the lockout is over.

“As the world governing body for basketball, we strongly hope that the labour dispute will be resolved as soon as possible, and that the NBA season is able to begin as scheduled,” said FIBA Secretary General and IOC member, Patrick Baumann.

“In view of our role to promote basketball worldwide, we support any player wishing to play the game, wherever and whenever. We do so while obviously taking the interests, rights and obligations of all parties into account,” he added.

“We are delighted to see that, in spite of widespread doubts related to the lockout, National Teams competing in this summer’s Olympic Qualifiers will be able to count on the participation of most of their NBA stars.”

Any NBA player deciding to play during the lockout, does so at his own risk, notably if he sustains an injury.




FIBA has stated that it is up to the clubs to decide whether or not they shall sign a waiver clearing them of any responsibility towards the player in case of injury and other reasons preventing him from returning to the NBA and from fulfilling his obligations vis-à-vis his NBA team.

Title: Only Two Tickets for London Up for Grabs at this Summer's EuroBasket in Lithuania: Spain Scarily Good !
Post by: Coach E Smith on Aug 18, 2011, 06:30:51 PM
EuroBasket & European Basketball Tournaments Analysis • Análisis Torneos Europeos de Baloncesto y Eurobasket

Spain scarily good

There will only be two tickets for London up for grabs at this summer's EuroBasket in Lithuania and one of them seems almost pre-stamped for a scary good Spanish squad.

Of course favorites don't always pan out but in Spain's case, there are so many factors in their favor, you just have to bow down to their excellence.

Let's take a look at those factors in the light of their three easy wins against France, Lithuania and Bulgaria to start off their preparation for the upcoming Eurobasket with a bang!

By the way, in those three wins coach Sergio Scariolo played the piano with his roster, limiting the playing time of his biggest stars who were still quite efficient.

He can afford to bring them along slowly in order to reach peak form during the elimination round. For example, Juanca Navarro scored 19 points in 12 minutes in the latest win v Bulgaria on five of seven shooting from three-point land.

Wow! This golden generation of Spanish players has come of age together around the Gasol brothers, Navarro, Rudy Fernandez and Calderon to name a few, and Scariolo had so much talent on hand he left the excellent Barcelona center Fran Vasquez at home.

I know a few national team selections where he would have been the best inside player!

Since this generation has played and won together for so many years, their team chemistry is off the charts and they circulate the ball and hit the open man with their eyes closed! These guys don't take many forced or bad shots and that is the sign of a champion. It's like they have an internal honor code for the group and bad shot selection is just not acceptable.

Okay, you might feel I paint too rosy a picture because in the recent past, sometimes Juanca and Rudy would be competing to be the top dog offensive threat from the wing, but this is only natural in such an elite hyper-competitive setting. Everyone will keep their ego in check for the greater good as they usually do because of the dominance and leadership of Pau Gasol, the ultimate go-to player in European basketball.

Now that his brother Marc is as good as he is, Spain has a double-whammy inside presence and you can make that a triple with the arrival of Serge Ibaka to bring athleticism and shot blocking to the already powerful mix. Not since the golden generation of Yugoslavia ( Divac, Radja, Kukoc ) have we seen such an impressive trio of in the paint superstars.

Spain has all the answers for upcoming defences in Lithuania and a seductive, fan pleasing, spectacular style to boot!. They can play really fast thanks to their quickness and steals on defence or slow the game down and pound the ball inside while surrounding the Gasols ( excellent passers ) with dead-eye three point shooters.

About the only tactic left for opponents is to leave Ricky Rubio open and zone up around the big men with alot of help from Rubio's defender.

That's when Scariolo can go to Calderon, a much better shooter and so on and so forth. This team has no weakness, ah, except maybe one... or two...




They must avoid getting overconfident or complacent and they must avoid arrogance and constant complaining with the referees which we have regretted in the past.

Of course, an upset is always possible but frankly, after lining up all these factors in Spain's favor, I have a hard time believing they won't get a direct ticket to the London Olympic games in September!

Title: EuroBasket: NBA players with key roles... Dirk Nowitzki, Tony Parker, Sarunas Jasikevicius, Darius Songaila, Luol Deng..
Post by: marionbasket on Sep 03, 2011, 10:57:28 PM

EuroBasket - NBA players with key roles

After writing about Dirk Nowitzki and Tony Parker last week, I would like to go into the key roles that many other NBA players will have at the EuroBasket.

This week I will concentrate on Groups A and B, by far the strongest groups and next week we will look at groups C and D where Russia, Greece, Croatia and Slovenia line up as strong favourites to make the Quarter-Finals.

In powerful Group A, you have the two probable finalists in Spain and Lithuania plus FIBA World Championship finalists from Turkey who emerge as favourites to go to the Second Round.

For Spain,  the top seven players played or will play in the NBA as major actors (not as benchwarmers), which proves their talent level and their shared experience in winning big games since 2004 is unparalleled; they are everyone's favourites!

Playing all but one of their preparation games at home was good for filling the federation's coffers and pleasing the home fans, but we must not forget that their only loss came against Lithuania in Kaunas. Maybe they should have played stronger opponents away from home.

With Linas Kleiza, their best scorer in Turkey, absent, the NBA presence on the Lithuanian team is less important but former NBA players, Sarunas Jasikevicius and Darius Songaila can still take and make money-time shots and Jonas Valanciunas has a brillant future waiting in Toronto and a role to play at the Eurobasket.

The fabulous support of their basketball-loving home crowd should give them wings!

Turkey should qualify as the third team from Group A behind Ersan Ilyasova and Hedo Turkoglou but turning the page on the Bogdan Tanjevic era and the euphoria of last summer's World Championship Final won't be easy as we have seen with Turkey's up and down results during the preparation games.

Chicago's brillant scorer, Luol Deng, will have to move mountains by himself to get Great Britain into the Second Round but it will be fun watching him try.

Group B is by far the most dense with Serbia and France as clear favourites but fighting off Italy and Germany won't be easy.

Serbia, like Lithuania, is more of a European style roster but their results in the last two years speak for themselves. If Milos Teodosic stays a calm leader throughout, he should be the best point guard at the EuroBasket along with Parker.

Tony leads a French team where the top seven players play in or were drafted by NBA teams.

France has by far the greatest athletic potential of all the teams in Lithuania, which can translate into some lockdown defence when needed as in 2005 when they won the bronze in Belgrade.

However, the defensive leader then was the Phoenix Suns' Mickael Pietrus who is injured and will be missed along with the Knick's energetic Ronny Turiaf.

France won nine out of 10 preparation games but only played four tough opponents and six of the wins were too easy. Maybe they should have played more top flight teams at the end of their long preparation schedule.

The pressure will  be on from the get-go because Italy has three NBA stars to build around and Germany has two and these two teams feel that they can go to the Second Round too!

The big question for Italy is, can their trio of NBA shooters share the ball and play enough defence to qualify?

For Germany the question is: can Dirk Nowitzki and Chris Kaman (who will probably score half their team's points) get enough scoring help and quality play from the guards to qualify?

The irony for the teams that qualify for the quarters from Groups A and B is that possibly their toughest opponents will already be behind them, but as we all know, anything can happen when all the marbles are riding on one game!




In any case, the teams in Groups A and B will have to take the competition step by step because being upset by a weaker opponent just one time might mean you don't qualify for the next round! What do you think?

Title: EuroBasket and European Tournaments: Greetings! Eurobasket of surprises ! Some surprising things occurred
Post by: pro-motor on Sep 07, 2011, 06:15:34 AM

Greetings! Eurobasket of surprises

The first round of the strongest Eurobasket of all time is over and some surprising things have already occurred.

For example, in Group C who could have predicted that Croatia would be already eliminated, that Finland would qualify for the second round with F.Y.R. of Macedonia, and that the latter would dominate Greece for first place!

Group C was wide open from the start and it was only fitting that the third qualifier would squeak through on a three-way point differentiel. Unreal! When I commentate these games on TV I always insist that the final margin is almost as important as the result because when you base the standings on so few games, the point differential is often decisive.

The equally wide open Group D was another case in point, where Georgia sneaked through despite losing its last game to Bulgaria. If point differential is hard to explain to casual basketbal fans, it does make EVERY possession important.

In the second round, Russia and Slovenia should logically emerge as quarter-finalists, led by their NBA stars, Andrei Kirilenko and Goran Dragic. Kiri is dominating the stat sheet for the top notch Russian team that has recuperated its best players and wants a repeat of their amazing 2007 finish. Dragic can't buy a three point shot but is still playing a good all-around game while being significantly helped by Erazem Lorbek the leading scorer and rebounder for a Slovenian team that only lost by one point to powerful Russia. F.Y.R. of Macedonia and Greece should join them in the quarters and the second tour will be themed, in my opinion, by teams jockeying for position in order to avoid Spain in the quarter-finals!

The Spanish demonstration vs. Lithuania and its fans was absolutely incredible. Spain was younger, quicker, and more intense from the opening tip behind a Juanca Navarro festival and the Lithuanians looked like they were running in mud. When you added up the speed and shooting of the outside players with the size and technique of the inside trio of NBA stars, Spain looked unbeatable. Ibaka's second half was so good that coach Scariolo decide he could let Pau Gasol rest his ankle the next day against a resuscitated Turkish team,another surprise entrant who was saved by Great Britain beating Poland the last day. Without Pau and worn out by the short turnaround after the emotional Lithuania win 18 hours earlier, Spain looked human again missing open shots and only scoring TWO points in the fourth quarter, proving that one must be doubly careful vs. a team that dodged elimination miraculously! Maybe Spain got a little overconfident, something they will want to avoid in the second round when they play Germany, Serbia and France!

For me, it is much less clear which teams will qualify for the quarters out of Group E compared to Group F, even though France starts out in the best position after going 5-0 in the first round behind their brillant MVP candidate, Tony Parker and his other NBA pals, Boris Diaw, Nicolas Batum, Joakim Noah etc. France will want to immediately punch its ticket for the quarters vs. Turkey on wednesday in a high pressure battle which arrives a bit rapidly for a tired and beaten up BUT euphoric French squad playing its best basketball since 2005 (bronze medal in Belgrade). The France-Serbia matchup was the best played game(they saved the best for last!) of the first round by far with lots of points,excellent execution,suspense, and spectacular action and it only seemed fitting that the result should be decided on an unlucky miss from close range after Serbia rained in eleven amazing three-pointers! Both teams deserved to win this one but the turning point was when Milos Teodosic was eliminated for five fouls at the end of regulation on a flagrant foul he should have avoided!




For once, France was just as mentally tough and determined as the Serbs which is a good sign for what lies ahead for them. In my opinion, they will qualify with Spain, Serbia and Lithuania but it won't be easy for any of them! What do you think?

Title: EuroBasket: It's Olympic crunch time ~ Eight team, six places - who'll be booking their place for London?
Post by: Mariana 69 on Sep 15, 2011, 12:32:51 AM

It's Olympic crunch time !!!
 Eight team, six places - who'll be booking their place for London?


With the second round now behind us, London now quite literally gets closer for eight teams as the tournament moves west to Kaunas for the final stages.

When EuroBasket arrived at the same stage in the previous tournament that doubled as an Olympic qualifier in Madrid, Spain in 2007; six of the eight teams that were there then are again here now in 2011. Of those six teams Spain, Russia, Lithuania and Greece would go on to book Olympic berths whilst Slovenia would fail in their bid to experience the Olympics for the first time in their short history, and France would not be able to return for the first time since winning silver back in Sydney in 2000.

Joining those six in the final eight are newcomers F.Y.R. of Macedonia who have never before made it to this stage in a tournament and hence never been to the Olympics; and Serbia who are hoping to return to the Olympics following an eight year absence.

Playing in the first quarterfinal on Wednesday, Spain will be confident of moving one step closer to direct Olympic qualification when they take on a Slovenian side whose time in Lithuania has to date resembled something of a rollercoaster. Slovenia's recent talk - at least to the media - has been that a top six finish and the subsequent Olympic Qualifying Tournament berth are where their ambitions lie.

Having exceeded expectations by making it this far, F.Y.R. of Macedonia will be feeling the pressure released from their shoulders, which may well be a key factor when taking on Lithuania, for whom the pressure will mount every day, in the second of Wednesday's semis.

F.Y.R. of Macedonia Head Coach Marin Dokuzovski has seen little minutes from his bench in this tournament and fatigue in his key players may start to play a role. Coupled with the fact that it looks likely that inspirational starting center Todor Gechevski will miss the game with injury, F.Y.R of Macedonia could be struggling against the Lithuanians, who will have the unwavering support of the crowd behind them and who benefit from an extra day's rest.

With some teams looking to the future by bringing a number of fresh faces to this year's tournament, France is one team bucking the trend with their minds firmly set on winning EuroBasket and worrying about the Olympics later with French Head Coach Vincent Collet telling FIBA that this team was brought to play this tournament alone with no places within the side guaranteed for next year.

On the other hand, Collet's Greek counterpart Ilias Zouros has stated time and again that this tournament's team is one for the future, with a number of veteran players staying at home or being left there. Zouros' work in progress will have the ultimate test against a French team bringing back Tony Parker and Joakim Noah who were both rested in France's previous outing.

The last time that Russia needed to qualify for the Olympics they didso by beating World Champions Spain in the final of EuroBasket 2007. If they are to take the same direct qualifying route here then they are going to have to continue the tournament as the only unbeaten team up until the gold medal game.

Fresh off a win over F.Y.R. of Macedonia, Russia also showed they can get the job done without star Andrei Kirilenko who had an off-night shooting.

Yet despite their unbeaten status, Russia remain wary as they prepare to take on Serbia who only made it this far when Turkey's Ersan Ilyasova missed a buzzer-beater that would have instead put his team in the last eight.

Having arrived to this point in such a fashion Serbia will now be all the more determined not to go home and as Russian Head Coach David Blatt pointed out to media, they will also be all the better for having had a rest day more than the Russians.

Title: EuroBasket and European Tournaments: The Fun Final was Icing on a Beautiful Cake with Lots of Run and Gun
Post by: Euro Fan on Sep 21, 2011, 04:56:47 AM
EuroBasket & European Basketball Tournaments Analysis • Análisis Torneos Europeos de Baloncesto y Eurobasket

Fun Final

The best EuroBasket of all time was organised in a country where the game is a religion and the fervent Lithuanian fans created a magical, high decibel atmosphere.

The fun Final was icing on a beautiful cake with lots of run and gun, uptempo action and it ended with the logical crowning of Europe's Dream Team, Spain, which recorded a rare back-to-back in EuroBasket competition.

France played chin to chin with Spain and made some good runs, but Juan Carlos Navarro & Co always found a solution or a miracle shot at the end of a possession to keep them at bay.

F.Y.R. of Macedonia was better at slowing down Spain's runaway freight train in their Semi-Final, but this was because France has the thoroughbreds to keep up but not the excellent and consistent execution that the Spanish players have developped together over the last decade.

Don't forget that this group went through some heavy disappointments before it became World Champs in 2006 and France can look at Spain's recent past and use it as a blueprint for its own future.

The French just need to develop the same shared experience with this roster but in any case they are already fully satisfied with reaching their first EuroBasket Final ever, and getting a direct ticket to London and in knowing that basketball has become, once again, a major sport in France in terms of popularity and TV ratings!

The fact is, Spain are dominating European sports in general and their sports system and infrastructures can be a blueprint for anyone these days!

The two key stats that favoured Spain in the Final were points off turnovers and blocked shots (Serge Ibaka!) which proved that the Spanish defense fueled, and was just as good  as, its brillant offense.

That was not so much the case for France which gave up an historical number of points.

Individually, Navarro was in the twighlight zone from the Quarter-Finals onwards and his best friend Pau Gasol seemed happy to let him walk off with a much-deserved MVP trophy.

I should say run off because no one can catch the Barcelona star who looks like you and me off the court but is a unique player on the court thanks to his quickness and technique which are similar to Tony Parker's.

Navarro's shooting off of one foot or while moving to his left is unstoppable and he has a variety of cool moves that young players should admire and copy like his catch-and-shoot off of screens, his teardrop shots from all angles and his change of direction dribbles before dishing  assists out of the high pick-and-roll.

What a pure genius this guy is while being exactly the contrary of typical modern sports stars who all look like body-builders!

You can say the same thing for Parker (a mature leader now) who joined Juanca on the All-Tournament team along with Mr All-Around, Andrei Kirilenko (whose foul trouble against France in the Semi-Final was key), Bo McCalebb who helped Macedonia become the revelation of the tournament while turning the heads of some NBA scouts, and last but not least, Pau Gasol.

The gentle giant was go-to insurance as usual down low whenever Spain needed a big play and his pairing with his brother Marc worked fabulously within the framework of a team of stars who accepted to share the ball, self-sacrifice on defense and watch out for each other  as Pau so pertinently pointed out after the Final.

The coaches of the Final Serge Scariolo and Vincent Collet can be proud of the way their players bonded together for the common cause from day one.

These two smart coaches also intelligently let their players take centre stage and I would say the same thing for the referees who did a good job and were less penalising to NBA players compared to the past while also giving more baskets plus the foul in continuity situations when players attack the basket the way they do in the NBA.




The one change I would make in the EuroBasket formula would be to give one rest day before those decisive classification games for the last two spots at the Olympic Qualifying Tournament which logically went to Lithuania and Greece.

All of this top notch play in Lithuania has me salivating already for the Olympics in London where Spain will try and upset  Team USA in the battle of the Dream Teams and France can legitemately hope for a medal.

Title: EuroBasket and European Tournaments: Fortune and misfortune "...The misfortune of some is the good fortune of others..."
Post by: zone424 on Oct 19, 2011, 07:47:00 AM
EuroBasket & European Basketball Tournaments News & Analysis • Análisis Torneos Europeos de Baloncesto y Eurobasket

Fortune and misfortune
"...The misfortune of some is the good fortune of others..."

In France there's an expression: "The misfortune of some is the good fortune of others". This can apply to the stock market as well as to basketball.

While the NBA lockout is creating misfortune or unemployment for many workers connected to the NBA business machine, it is also creating wealth for many lawyers and buzz for European teams with NBA players on their rosters.

While the billionaires and millionaires haggle over indecent sums of money without regard for the fan (or taxpayer) who eventually pays, or the minimum-wage employee who sells hot dogs in the arenas or after-game beers near the arenas, the Euroleague starts this week with a lot of NBA-labelled talent to attract more and more fans into THEIR arenas.

In France, Nicolas Batum will play his first Euroleague game with the ambitious Nancy team this week in Cantu and the presence of Tony Parker (and soon Ronny Turiaf) on the Lyon-Villeurbanne roster has created an unprecedented media impact following up beautifully the French national team's highly-mediatised and brilliant performance at the Eurobasket.

Parker is promoting basketball everywhere: from the primetime news shows on national TV to numerous advertising spots and even a recent cartoon show to seduce the youngest generation of fans!

Tony will fill arenas and boost TV ratings along with his team's chances of figuring well in the Eurocup competition. Yes, the same Eurocup which Deron Williams failed to qualify his Turkish team for.

In fact, Deron only scored 11 points in his first Turkish League game this past weekend which proves that it won't be so easy for the NBA guys to dominate the tough competition over here because it's a different style of basketball than the NBA.

Deron's situation also underlines the risk of reducing some of the NBA's marketing luster as international fans discover up close some NBA stars who are not necessarily miles above the competition.

Remember the recent experiences of Allen Iverson in Turkey or Stephon Marbury and Steve Francis in China.

The NBA sells a dream game with incredibly gifted athletes playing in wonderfully-lighted modern arenas in front of 20,000 fans and an international television audience that often watches in the middle of the night.

The NBA seems to be from another idyllic planet but the lockout is bringing everyone crashing back down to earth and I wonder if even big basketball fan Barack Obama can get the warring parties to negotiate intelligently.

All future percentage point gains in Basketball Related Income (BRI) by the players over a six-year deal will be negated by lost salary after just two months of a lockout!

When anger and ego replace reason in a complex negotiation, this not a good sign.

After such a successful season in 2010-2011, it is hard to fathom that all the actors in this disappointing NBA melodrama continue to strangle mercilessly the goose that layed all those golden eggs!

While the owners try to protect themselves from their own mismanagement and players lose touch with the everyday reality of the common fan, even more Americans than usual will watch football and Europeans will marvel at this oppurtunity to see NBA stars up close because life goes on.

Title: Looking ahead to the 2012 summer schedule of youth European Championships: FIBA Europe gives chances to Hungary
Post by: campus 2012 on Jan 10, 2012, 06:04:22 PM
EuroBasket & European Basketball Tournaments Analysis • Análisis Torneos Europeos de Baloncesto y Eurobasket

FIBA Europe gives chances to Hungary, co-hosting

Looking ahead to the 2012 summer schedule of youth European Championships, two things really stand out: first of all, FIBA Europe wants to give Hungary as much preparation as possible for EuroBasket Women 2015; and secondly, the European continental basketball body appears ready to give co-hosting tournaments another chance.

In 2015, Hungary will be hosting EuroBasket Women for the fifth time in their history having done so in 1950, 1964, 1983 and 1997. And even though Hungarian basketball clubs have a long tradition in European club competitions, FIBA Europe is once again doing the correct thing in giving Hungary youth championships ahead of time to prepare for the big event in three and a half years time.

The proposed 2015 host cities are Budapest, Sopron, Gyor, Szombathely and Veszprem. While those will likely be awarded youth events in coming years, this summer Miskolc will be the backdrop of the U16 European Championship for Women in July and the U20 European Championship for Women will take place in Debrecen in August.

Before Miskolc hosted the U18 European Championship for Women Division B tournament last summer, it had been some time since Hungary last welcomed national team basketball to its borders. The 2006 U20 European Championship for Women took place in Sopron while the 2005 U18 women’s tournament was played in Budapest. Before that, Sopron hosted the U16 women in 1997 – actually after that year's EuroBasket Women.

FIBA Europe made the right choice in bringing the EuroBasket Women back to Hungary, where clubs like Sopron, Pecs and Gyor have represented their country well outside of their homeland. And the youth tournaments are a huge help in building up the local populations and organisations to prepare for bigger events and determine what infrastructure still needs development.

One city surprisingly missing from the EuroBasket Women plans is Pecs, which this season failed to reach the EuroLeague Women for the first time in 16 years, but did host the 2004 EuroLeague Women Final Four.

The youth tournaments will also prepare Hungary to host other events in the future.

Attila Czene, the country’s Secretary of State for Sport, said at the awarding of EuroBasket Women 2015 that Hungary are also considering to bid for the Youth Olympics in 2017.

The other major note of interest from the selection of youth tournament hosts came with the decision regarding the U16 and U18 European Championships Men, which in 2012 will both be co-hosted by neighbors Lithuania and Latvia.

It was widely regarded in the industry that FIBA Europe had shunned countries co-hosting tournaments since the 2007 U20 European Championship Men in neighboring towns Nova Gorica, Slovenia and Gorizia, Italy – which was complicated by the fact that Slovenia was not yet in the Schengen Area, meaning that teams, officials and fans continually needed to go through border controls when going from one arena to the other.

The fact that the Germany/France-conceived EuroBasket 2015 bid appeared destined to be approved before falling apart at the last minute hinted that FIBA Europe has since softened its non-official stance. And it seems the case for certain now that FIBA Europe has allowed Lithuania and Latvia to co-host two tournaments this summer.

Lithuanian basketball fans – and officials – were looking forwards to bigger things this summer, hoping for both the Olympic Qualifying Tournament (awarded to Venezuela) and the U20 European Championship (awarded to Slovenia) – the latter which could have possibly seen Jonas Valanciunas play in his final youth tournament. But one summer after hosting EuroBasket, Lithuanian fans still get to see both the U16 and U18 men’s tournaments not to mention the FIBA U17 World Championship in late June and early July.  

The U20 men decision makes sense as it gives the EuroBasket 2013 hosts Slovenia a chance to prepare for Europe’s top tournament.




FIBA Europe’s reversal on co-hosting meanwhile also makes sense. Two host nations hosting their teams’ groups promise more fan support for all games – which was the underlying premise of Germany and France’s EuroBasket 2015 bid along with Croatia and Italy.

Should Lithuania and Latvia succeed in co-hosting their tournaments this summer, European basketball fans may see more of neighboring countries teaming up to host events.

Title: EuroBasket and European Tournaments: Dimitris Diamantidis Wrote Another Glorious Chapter in his Magnificent Career
Post by: no-return on Apr 07, 2012, 05:56:12 AM
EuroBasket & European Basketball Tournaments Analysis • Análisis Torneos Europeos de Baloncesto y Eurobasket

Diamantidis brilliant

Dimitris Diamantidis wrote another glorious chapter in his magnificent career on Thursday by leading Panathinaikos past Maccabi Tel Aviv and into the Euroleague Final Four.

The former Greece international had 25 points, including the go-ahead free-throw with five seconds remaining, and then came up with a steal to seal the 86-85 victory in Athens.

Meanwhile, the Tall Blacks in the New Zealand Breakers squad were influential in the team’s Game 2 win at Townsville Crocs.

The 93-83 victory has set up a Game 3 decider for Saturday in New Zealand.

Diamantidis the Great

Greece fans are hoping that Diamantidis will reconsider his retirement and play for the country again this summer when they attempt to reach the Olympics in London.

Diamantidis decided to quit playing international basketball after his country’s elimination at the World Championship in Ankara but has remained one of the best players in the sport.

The point guard did most of his damage at the line on Thursday against Maccabi, making 15 of 18 free-throws.

Maccabi boss David Blatt, whose team lost to Diamantidis and Panathinaikos in last year’s Final, said: "Details decided the winner, and also Dimitris Diamantidis, who is my nemesis.

"I like him as a person, but I don't want to see him in front of me in the future.

"He is a great player.

"He was named the 2011 MVP and he can be it again.

"Big players show up in crucial games. I would like to lock him in his hotel room."




Lithuania veteran Sarunas Jasikevicius was the only other Panathinaikos player to reach double figures with 13 points.

Maccabi's Greek international Sofoklis Schortsanitis had eight points and two rebounds in just under 11 minutes.

Panathinaikos will meet CSKA on the opening day (11 May) of the Final Four in Istanbul.

Title: Golden Greeks just win again with Olympiacos: Kostas Papanikolaou, Kostas Sloukas and Evangelos Mantzaris
Post by: always_bball on May 22, 2012, 05:40:08 AM
EuroBasket & European Basketball Tournaments Analysis • Análisis Torneos Europeos de Baloncesto y Eurobasket

Golden Greeks just win again with Olympiacos

Kostas Papanikolaou, Kostas Sloukas and Evangelos Mantzaris are the leaders of Greece’s next golden generation.

Despite combining to win loads of youth competition hardware, it was still a shock that the golden trio helped Olympiacos surge back from a 19-point deficit to upset mighty favorites CSKA Moscow for the 2012 Euroleague crown.

But maybe it shouldn’t have been.

Having looked up to and idolized the likes of Theo Papaloukas, Dimitrios Diamantidis, Nikos Zisis and Vassilis Spanoulis as teenagers, Papanikolaou, Sloukas and Mantzaris teamed up in 2008 to win the Albert Schweitzer Tournament and then give Greece their first-ever U18 European Championship crown. In 2007, Papanikolaou and Sloukas won U18 silver.

In 2009, the trio first won silver at the FIBA U19 World Championship and then claimed gold at the U20 European Championship. And in 2010, they added U20 silver to their collection.

The trio of youngsters was also making in-roads into the Greek senior national team – thanks to efforts to inject an aging Hellas side with young talent.

Papanikolaou nearly made the Greek team for the 2010 FIBA World Championship in Turkey, but joined Sloukas in the Greece side at EuroBasket 2011. And Mantzaris could likely make his senior team debut this summer at the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament (OQT).

Papanikolaou, who doesn’t turn 22 until July 31, is certainly the bigger talent of the three. NBA scouts are drooling over the 2.04m (6’9”) forward’s defensive prowess, which is enough to look over his slight offensive shortcomings.

Papanikolaou is finishing off his second season as a starter for Euroleague powers Olympiacos. Throughout last weekend's Euroleague Final Four, he absolutely proved his winning mentality.

He played great defense against Barcelona in the semi-finals and then stymied Euroleague MVP Andrei Kirilenko in the final.

Oh, and Papanikolaou also made all five of his shots – including three three-pointers – and five of six free-throws, including a pair with 10.1 seconds left with all the cool of a 10-year veteran to cut the game to one point. Kirilenko, Milos Teodosic and Ramunas Siskauskas, meanwhile, all missed foul shots for CSKA in the final two minutes.

Sloukas and Mantzaris – who both joined or re-joined Olympiacos this season – did not have as much impact on the final, but both played a big part.

Mantzaris nailed a three-pointer – his only basket of the game – just before the third quarter buzzer to cut the deficit to 13 points. Sloukas opened the fourth period with a triple of his own – also his only basket in the final. Both played strong hard-nosed defense at the guard position.




The Euroleague final once again showed that this group of young Greeks has the will and skill to succeed – this time at the senior level.

Some nickname crazy observers may try to come up with something for this Greek trio. Something silly like “PapaSloukZaris” or “MantSloukaNikolaou”.

Here’s one, it’s not exactly creative or flashy, but it hits the point: “Winners!”

Title: San Antonio Internationals: An Icredible Euroleague Final Four in Istanbul with the Golden Young Greek Generation
Post by: zambia32 on May 28, 2012, 02:17:06 AM
EuroBasket & European Basketball Tournaments Analysis • Análisis Torneos Europeos de Baloncesto y Eurobasket

San Antonio Internationals

The last two weeks have been eventful as I was fortunate to commentate an incredible Euroleague Final Four in Istanbul.

All the games were full of suspense and excitement but the Final was beyond belief as the golden young Greek generation of players from Olympiakos put on the greatest comeback ever against CSKA Moscow's armada of expensive superstars. What a story!

The year that Olympiakos must reduce its budget by half is the year they break through to win their second Euroleague title thanks to the energy and intensity of a unexpected small ball line-up that fronts the bigs and pressures the passers the way Oklahoma City Thunder is doing it to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Dusan Ivkovic gave the young team confidence and superior tactics just like a legendary coach should.

With all the economic problems the country has been facing, this was at least one occasion for the Greek population to smile and be proud of its homegrown basketball players!

I am sure that Greg Popovich, with his Serbian background, was impressed by this incredible performance too. The genius of coaches like Ivkovic or Zeljko Obradovic is no secret to Pop, who has often sung the merits of international basketball.

His San Antonio team, like Dallas last season, is putting on a clinic during these surprising playoffs about how to use international players and styles of play at the NBA level.

Popovich, who loathes individual awards like Coach of the Year, is also a direct descendant of the Dean Smith-Larry Brown school of "Play hard, play smart and play together" basketball. This translates on the court to a lot of crisp rotations with a minimum of fouls on defense while sharing the ball, making the extra pass, spreading the court and milking the corner three-point shot or Tim Duncan's inside presence on offense.

This season, the Spurs' roster is more international than ever before with players who come from France to Australia or Canada to Brazil with a few stops in Argentina or the Virgin Islands!

Pop laid down the blueprint for the edifice, a rejuvenated Tim Duncan is the crew chief, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker are the brilliant painters with creative, artistic hands and all the other workers are totally in acceptance of their roles right down to the last man!

Pop has created top notch players out of rookies and also-rans this season and intelligently added important weapons like Boris Diaw and Stephen Jackson late in the season just to make sure all the positions were oppurtunistically backed-up in case of injury.

Diaw, whose altruistic style fits in perfectly, is reborn while starting during this incredible playoff run and his best buddy Parker did his team a favor by lobbying for Boris' signature.

Parker is playing the best ball of his career as Pop and Duncan have anointed him the leader and go-to player of this 2012 team and the Frenchman has responded by reducing his errors of judgement and producing a career year in assists which keeps everybody happy and on the same page.

I'm not sure that all these human and international qualities will be enough to eliminate the young lions of Oklahoma City, but we should be headed for one of the best Western Conference Finals ever, which, in my opinion will provide the future NBA champions.




The Thunder are young, mega-talented, energetic, intense and have shown during these playoffs an amazing capacity to learn from past errors (see Russell Westbrook) and to come back from being down to win close games with guts and rage (see Kevin Durant).

Kind of reminds us of Olympiakos, n'est-ce pas?

Survive and advance

Was that a collective sigh of relief we heard on Tuesday night when both Turkey and Serbia booked their places at EuroBasket 2013 in Slovenia?

You bet it was.

International basketball heavyweights, both national teams left it until the last night of the Qualification Round to seal places in the Final Round in Slovenia.

Sweden, Belgium, Latvia and Israel also sealed their spots in next year’s Final Round, though the latter had all but punched their ticket in their penultimate game against Slovakia on Saturday.

For the European teams with designs on reaching the FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain, they first had to make it to the EuroBasket – the European zone’s qualifying event for the major event in 2014.

The pressure was immense on Tuesday night for those sides that still had not reached EuroBasket 2013.

So what is to be made of the tough summer for both Serbia and Turkey, teams that squared off in the Semi-Final of the 2010 FIBA World Championship?

Mark Twain once wrote: "The report of my death was an exaggeration."

There were certainly reports that Turkey's men's team was dead and not going to Slovenia next summer.

Missing key men from years past and relying on a bunch of youngsters (20-year-old Utah Jazz center Enes Kanter not among them) to qualify for the EuroBasket, Turkey went into their game last night in Istanbul against the Czech Republic needing a victory to assure themselves of a place in next year's Final Round.

They had lost to Italy, the Czech Republic and Italy again to put their progression in serious doubt.

The most calamitous of all the setbacks was the second against the Italians on 5 September, as the Turks blew an 18-point advantage at home and lost, 83-82.

In their eighth and final Qualification Round game against the Czechs on Tuesday, though, Turkey not only rolled to victory but did so by 23 points.

They had to win by more than 18 to leapfrog the Czechs into second place in Group F, and they did.

"We had two goals before these qualification games," said Turkey coach Bogdan Tanjevic.

"The first was of course taking the ticket to Slovenia and the second one was testing the young players.

"It was risky, but it was included in the Turkish Basketball Federation's new plan.

"We wanted to give a chance to the young generation to gain experience."

Youngsters that would appear to have a very good chance of playing in Slovenia after their performances in the Qualification Round are Dogus Balbay and Ilkan Karaman.

Balbay, a point guard, and forward Karaman both averaged more than 21 minutes per game this summer.

Furkan Aldemir, a 2.07m power forward, is a great talent who played an average of 10.5 minutes per game but his time may not come in Slovenia.

"Now, we have different goals such as a medal at EuroBasket 2013, qualification for the World Cup and the Olympics," Tanjevic said.

"Next year, we will have a combination of young and veteran players and I hope we will get new success."

Serbia barely made it, too.

The Blues' ups and downs were understandable and perhaps even predictable.

They knew this summer was going to be extremely difficult in Group A, the hardest of the six in the EuroBasket Qualification Round.

Group A was the only pool with six teams, so sides had to play 10 games and not eight.

Serbia also had to cope with long journeys to Iceland, Estonia and Israel.

And Group A opponents Montenegro and Israel are very good teams.

Serbia had to play without captain Nenad Krstic the first couple of games while the veteran center battled back from an injury.

And this summer, the team also missed its firebrand point guard off the bench, Stefan Markovic, with a back injury making him unavailable.

When Montenegro hit a buzzer-beating three-pointer from beyond half-court in Belgrade for a 73-71 win on 18 August - just the second game for the teams – Serbia’s confidence was knocked down a peg.

They appeared to find some balance in their game with victories the next two times out against Slovakia and Estonia, yet they ran into an Israeli buzz saw on 28 August in Tel Aviv.

The Israelis already had two defeats and simply could not afford to lose that game.

They defeated Serbia, 89-76.

Serbia ended up falling in two more games, at unbeaten Montenegro and at Estonia.

The message from Serbia coach Dusan Ivkovic before Tuesday's home clash with Israel was to win at all costs, and they did, though not by the 19-point margin that would have left them advance as the second-place team from Group A.

As it was, Israel, Serbia and Estonia all finished with 6-4 records and the Estonians failed to advance on goal differential.


"The main thing is that we qualified for EuroBasket 2013 despite very big problems," Ivkovic said.

Krstic added: "We needed to win, and we showed character.

"We wanted to beat Israel with a margin higher than 19 points, but it's ok because we reached our main goal."

Title: George Eddy's International Show: Brewing Debate in French Basketball Concerning the Future of Top Prospect Rudy Gobert
Post by: WBC Deborah Volger on Dec 18, 2012, 10:53:05 PM

Gobert and Ajinca

George Eddy's International Show
There's a brewing controversy in French  concerning the future of top prospect Rudy Gobert.

The 20-year-old athlete has NBA scouts drooling over his 2.15m heigh, 2.36m wingspan as well as his running and jumping skills which are off the charts and might make him the highest French draft pick since Joakim Noah was chosen in ninth position in 2007.
Gobert's potential is enormous but he is rail thin and only averaging 7,5 points in 20 minutes of playing time per  for Cholet in the French Pro A.

His best stats are blocked shots and rebounding, especially when you take into account his limited playing time, and he has clearly stated his case to his  and team in order to play more but he has been hampered by a sore ankle for several weeks.

His club coach Jean Manuel Sousa and the French national team coach Vincent Collet have pleaded with his entourage to give him more time in Europe to develop his skills and physique but Rudy seems set upon joining an NBA franchise next season.

Ten NBA scouts and numerous media were present for his latest performance against Collet's Strasbourg team which exasperated coach Sousa but highlighted the way modern day scouting and recruiting put a premium on   and potential, sometimes to the detriment of the best development of the player's career.

The scouts came to Cholet hoping to see a match-up between Gobert and former NBA -warmer Alexis Ajinca but the latter was injured and replaced by former Cholet player Romain Duport (2m17!) who played the best game of his career (19 points and 15 rebounds!) getting some sweet revenge on his old team, which had cut him earlier in the season to open up more playing time for Gobert.

Rudy finished with nine points, three rebounds and two blocks in 15 minutes in Cholet's close victory but we must ask ourselves, is he really ready for the NBA? He could look at Ajinca's career as an example of a tall and frail center drafted in the first round who played little in the NBA, a little more in the NBDL, during four unmemorable seasons before returning to France where he is, at the age of 24, playing his best basketball for Strasbourg (averaging 16 points and 6 rebounds a game).

Centers take longer to develop than guards and they often reach their peak around the age of 27.

Other French or European big men have given the priority to their financial future by going too early to the NBA and it's difficult to criticize their choice from an economic standpoint.

However, this has too often been disastrous for their playing career because the most important thing for any young player is to PLAY.

The system needs to be tweaked with the possibility to loan drafted players to foreign teams so that they can play and develop their skills.

The logical progression and successful path that a lot of players like Luis Scola, Tiago Splitter, Nicolas Batum, Rudy Fernandez or Manu Ginobili - among many others - have chosen, is to dominate in Europe before going to the NBA as a more mature and experienced player.


The goal for Gobert and his entourage is to succeed over the long term and have a career along the lines of the Pau and Marc Gasol or Serge Ibaka and avoid the NBA disappointment of an Alexis Ajinca or Hasheem Thabeet.

Title: David Hein’s Eye on the Future: Rytas’s star Edvinas Sesku looks to prove himself, help Lietuvos Rytas defend NIJT title
Post by: Charly Brown on Feb 04, 2013, 09:38:04 PM

Seskus looks to prove himself, help Lietuvos Rytas defend NIJT title

Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius will get the chance to repeat their title at the famed Nike International Junior Tournament after knocking off Lithuanian rivals Zalgiris Kaunas 100-81 in the Siauliai Tournament to book their spot in the finals at the Euroleague Final Four in London.

Rytas hope to make history and become the third team to repeat their crown following CSKA Moscow’s three-peat from 2004 to 2006 and FMP’s wins in 2008 and 2009.

The Vilnius club would also be the fourth side with multiple NIJT titles as Zalgiris Rytas won in 2003 and 2007.

Rytas’s star Edvinas Seskus will get his chance to make history as well. Seskus collected 17 points, 6 rebounds and 4 rebounds as Rytas beat Fenerbahce 88-70 in last May’s NIJT final in Istanbul.

After losing two of the team’s main weapons – Augustinas Jankaitis and Tautvydas Jodelis – Seskus was in charge of taking over the leadership. And the Prienai native collected 26 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists in the Siauliai final against Kaunas. Back with Seskus from last spring’s success are Gediminas Zalalis, Alvydas Zarskus, Lukas Ganas, Deividas Kumelis and Karolis Razukas.

But the NIJT will go a long way in proving just how valuable and good Seskus is. The 1995 generation in Lithuania isn’t considered that strong with Seskus being one of the few prospects of an unimpressive class.

For all the success that Seskus has had with Rytas, the shooting guard has been unable to live up to the huge expectations with the Lithuanian national team. And he’s leading a generation which has a series of medal winning classes ahead of them.

With Lithuanian basketball officials rarely mixing generations on the national team, the gold standard is the 1992 class topped by Jonas Valanciunas. The future NBA center won U16 European gold in 2008, U18 European gold in 2010 and gold at the 2011 FIBA U19 World Championship.

The rest of the generation proved they can win without Jonas by taking the 2012 U20 European crown as well.

The 1993 class followed that up with U16 European silver in 2009, fourth place at the 2010 FIBA U17 World Championship and U18 European fifth place in 2011.

The 1994 Lithuanian generation had the unfortunate burden of being born the same year as Croatian superstar Dario Saric as the Balkan nation finished second to the Croatians at the 2010 U16 European Championship and the 2012 U18 European Championship.

Seskus and his 1995 class? Well, they finished 13th and in the relegation round of the 2011 U16 European Championship. And then, despite being hosts, Lithuania took ninth place at the 2012 FIBA U17 World Championship with an overtime win over Korea, a one-point victory over Egypt and a solid victory against France in seven contests.

Those are hardly the results that Lithuanians are accustomed to. And Seskus has to answer to those critics since he is the leader of the team.


At least he’s doing the job at the NIJT. A second title would go a long way to proving at least himself as a winner.

Title: Weekend eBA Basketball Magazine: All Euroleague Rising Star Trophy winner Kostas Papanikolaou does is win by David Hein
Post by: HBC Brian Denver on May 04, 2013, 10:07:27 PM
EuroBasket & European Basketball Tournaments Analysis • Análisis Torneos Europeos de Baloncesto y Eurobasket

All Euroleague Rising Star Trophy winner
Papanikolaou does is win

David Hein's Eye on the Future
Kostas Papanikolaou is a winner - that's all there is to it. And the Olympiacos forward, who is on his way back to the Euroleague Final Four, has proven all season that he's the worthy winner of the 2012-13 Euroleague Rising Star Trophy.

Papanikolaou follows in the footsteps of Real Madrid's Spanish star Nikola Mirotic, who had won the last two Rising Star awards and finished second to the Greek international in this season's voting.
The 22-year-old Trikala native played a huge role in helping Olympiacos to their first Euroleague title since 1997 in May 2012, leading the Greek powers with 18 points in a spectacular 19-point comeback in the final 12 minutes over CSKA Moscow. Papanikolaou and Olympiacos also finally broke through in the Greek league, winning their first league crown since 1997.

Papanikolaou had fully arrived on the professional stage after picking up a long list of youth trophies - gold at the 2008 U18 European Championship, 2009 U20 European Championship and 2008 Albert Schweitzer Tournament as well as silver at the 2007 U18 European Championship, 2009 FIBA U19 World Championship and 2010 U20 European Championship.

The lock-down defender graduated to the senior Greek national team in 2011 and played a solid role at EuroBasket 2011 in Lithuania and nearly helped Hellas to the 2012 Olympics with a superb performance at the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament (OQT) in Venezuela. And he will undoubtedly be a key factor for new Greek coach Andrea Trinchieri.

Despite not turning 23 until late July, Papanikolaou has also long become a staple in Olympiacos' success since arriving in Piraeus in 2009.

This season Papanikolaou started slowly - and not surprisingly Olympiacos as well, with two losses in first three games. After averaging 4.3 points and 2.0 rebounds in the first three games, Papanikolaou picked up his production with 13.1 points and 4.9 rebounds as Olympiacos reeled off seven straight wins to finish off the Regular Season.

Papanikolaou - as well as the whole Olympiacos team - was a bit up and down in the Top 16. But he stepped it up when it mattered most at the end of the Top 16 stage, nailing 4-4 from three-point land in scoring 16 points against Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul and then going a perfect 6-6 from downtown for 21 points along with 12 rebounds, 2 steals and 2 blocks in the final game against Khimki Moscow Region for a spot in the Quarter-Final Playoffs.

Papanikolaou collected 6.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists in the Playoffs to get Olympiacos to their third Final Four in the past four seasons.

Most impressive about Papanikolaou's Euroleague stats line this season (9.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game) was his shooting 52.7 percent (49-93) from three-point range. That number is up from 33.3 percent last season in the Euroleague.

"In addition to team practice, you have to work on your own if you want to improve and help the team more. I worked the whole summer and during the season with our coaches, who have helped me a lot. I am trying to improve my game," said Papanikolaou, who had three-point showings of 5-6, 4-7, 3-3, 3-6, 4-4, 6-6 and 4-6 this season in the Euroleague.

Papanikolaou is hardly a youngster - especially in terms of winning hardware. But combine his performance at last year's Euroleague Final Four with the 2012-13 season and it's clear he is a winner.


Of course, the Rising Star Trophy is a nice individual award. But this winner is thinking bigger titles - and becoming the Euroleague's first repeat winner since Maccabi Tel Aviv in 2005 would be a great way to close the Euroleague season.

Title: Weekend eBA Basketball Magazine: Eurobasket MVP candidates... Pau Gasol, Vassilis Spanoulis, Luol Deng...
Post by: ESB Mario Sebastiani on Aug 04, 2013, 02:13:31 AM
EuroBasket & European Basketball Tournaments Analysis • Análisis Torneos Europeos de Baloncesto y Eurobasket

Eurobasket MVP candidates

In my last article I went over a non-exhaustive list of players who will not participate in the Eurobasket in Slovenia.

Players like Pau Gasol, Juanca Navarro, Luol Deng or Andrei Kirilenko who all would have made fine candidates for the MVP trophy or a perennial spot in the Top 5 players of the tournament.

So now, who will carry the torch in Slovenia, leading his team to important victories while racking up some big statistics?

I would start my list with Tony Parker, who just came off his best season as a Spurs and was brilliant in the NBA Finals which he rightly feels the Spurs should have won! Tony, very faithful to the French national team and as motivated as ever, will pull out all the stops to make up for the absence of several centers.

Portland's Nicolas Batum should have a breakout performance as the second major scoring option behind Tony.

Vassilis Spanoulis should have the same type of role and impact with Greece that Parker will have with France because both players are scorers first and playmakers second.

Be assured that opposing defences will try to force them to PASS! If Greece wins the Eurobasket I see Spanoulis, at the summit of his art, as the MVP.

You might be surprised that I see Goran Dragic having a breakout tournament too. He'll be playing at home and if legendary coach Boja Maljkovic gives him the keys to the locomotive and freedom to play his uptempo game, he should speed around defences like a race car and possibly lead Slovenia into the semi-finals which would confim his excellent season-individually speaking- with Phoenix.

Rudy Fernandez and Marc Gasol are MVP candidates if Spain goes far in the competition even though they are such a strong team collectively, the stats will be spread around between alot of talented players.

Another surprise, in the vein of what F.Y.R. of Macedonia accomplished at the last Eurobasket, could come from Montenegro which boasts the best tandem of inside players in the tournament with the two Nikolas, Vucevic and Pekovic who represent building blocks for the future in Orlando and Minnesota.

Vucevic has superior rebounding skils and Pekovic is a fabulous back to the basket scorer. Both players are much better than expected at the NBA level. Those are the main stars to watch for MVP but let's not forget Russia's new leader,also from Minnesota, Alexey Sved or Bo Mccalebb who surprised everyone two years ago in Lithuania.

I would add Marco Belinelli, the new Spur and Andrea Bargnani the neo-Knick, who are both prolific scorers on an Italian team that looks to recapture past glory similar to Milos Teodosic with Serbia.


As Tony Parker said recently, the key at the Eurobasket will be to not waste time worrying about who is absent while putting in the time and work to get the most out of those who are present!

Eurobasket Slovenia 2013 Favorites and Underdogs... !

George Eddy's International Show
Everyone seems to agree that Greece, Spain and France are the pre-tournament favorites concerning the upcoming 2013 Eurobasket in Slovenia.

After watching Greece dominate France in the second half of their preparation match in beautiful Strasbourg yesterday, I agree with French coach Vincent Collet that Greece is farther along in their preparation than France, thanks to a deep roster, aggressive defense and wonderful passing and shooting.
All this, despite adapting to a new Italian coach, Andrea Trincheri, who worked wonders in Cantu with his positive approach and ability to convince players to do things together.

The Greek players reacted well to this optimistic method and seem under less pressure compared to the recent past, despite the absence of Euroleague MVP, Vassilis Spanoulis, who was out with back spasms.

NBA stars Tony Parker and Nicolas Batum only scored two points each as the Greek defense tactically put pressure on the guards and wings and invited the French big men to try and score. Which they did, but wasn't enough to beat Greece who makes an art out of the "extra-extra" pass to set up magnificently their top notch three-point shooters all over the court.

France will need to take a page out of the Greek playbook and defend with more intensity to counter their excellent ball movement but also search for some fluidity in their own passing game.

I was particularly impressed by X-generation star Kostas Papanikolao who will leave Olympiakos for a mega-contract in Barcelona next season. His mobility at 2.06m is incredible because he has the fundamentals and dribble drive of a scoring guard, with the height of a power forward similar to a Kevin Durant at the NBA level.

After this defeat, France knows what it needs to work on before playing Spain twice in the next two weeks. France also knows the importance of finishing first or second after the second round in Slovenia in order to avoid Greece or Spain in the decisive quarter-finals! Greece and Spain are probably telling themselves the same thing concerning France because Parker and Batum won't score only two points very often!

I also saw Croatia and Germany play this past weekend in Strasbourg and both teams seem to have limited rotations coming from the bench, which will put added pressure and fatigue on their starters.

Bojan Bogdanovic, future Brooklyn Net, who scored 25 points against the tough Greek defense, is Croatia's offensive leader, along with Roko Ukic. Barcelona's top center Ante Tomic will have to pick up speed in the upcoming weeks in order for Croatia to avoid disappointing their numerous fans who will come and support them in Slovenia. They will be an underdog in Group C behind Spain and Slovenia but will have their chances against the other contenders for the third qualifying spot.

Same thing for a very young German team in Group A, the weakest first round group, where France should win all their games but it will be a toss-up between the other five teams for the two remaining spots to qualify for the second round.

France will start running into some difficulty when Group A crosses paths with the mega-strong Group B in the second round. I see France and three Group B teams moving into the quarter-finals. Watch out for Lithuania with its young and talented NBA big men, Jonas Valanciunas (Toronto) and Donatas Motiejunas(Houston). They should be a handful especially now that Nikola Pekovic has pulled himself out of the Montenegro team because of his NBA contract situation.

In Group D look for Greece and Turkey to qualify with the third spot a toss-up between Italy and Russia.


Of course, surprises can and will happen, as The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (MKD) proved two years ago in Lithuania, but in the end I see the usual suspects (or favourites) on the podium. The question will be, in which order ?

Title: Weekend eBA Basketball Magazine: Waiting for the Eurobasket Slovenia 2013... Remembering Unforgettable EuroBaskets !

Waiting for the Eurobasket Slovenia 2013...
Remembering Unforgettable EuroBaskets !

Jeff Taylor's Eurovision
There are a lot of similarities between this time of year and Christmas for the international basketball fan.

We have great expectations about what Santa Claus is going to leave under the three, just as we get excited about the coming battles at Olympic Games, FIBA Basketball World Cups and as is the case this year, EuroBaskets.

In the last decade, there have been unforgettable games and moments in Europe's top competition for national teams.
The following stand out for me:

At EuroBasket 2001, hosts Turkey squared off against Germany in the Semi-Finals, with Hedo Turkoglu and Dirk Nowitzki both early in the early stages of their hugely famous careers.

Nowitzki had 22 points and 10 rebounds but the Germans fell in overtime, 79-78.

Turkoglu amazed with 23 points, including a game-winning shot in the closing seconds when he dribbled the ball up the floor and got into the lane before scoring in traffic with a lay-up.

The packed Abdi Ipekci erupted and hailed Turkoglu as their hero, the player who had given them their most famous sporting achievement.

In 2003, Italy, losers of their first two games at the EuroBasket in Sweden, went on a remarkable run to the bronze medal.

Once in that third-place game against France, who had beaten Italy 85-52 in group play, the Azzurri won a thriller.

The contest ended when a young Tony Parker, who had a game-high 24 points and was blossoming into a superstar, dribbled past Massimo Bulleri and put up a runner from the right baseline that fell short of the rim.

The Italians qualified for the Olympics and went on to capture a silver medal in Athens.

In 2005, Serbia and Montenegro hosted an extraordinary EuroBasket.

I remember the coffee bars in Belgrade, and also the the Greek comeback against France in the Semi-Finals that was remarkable.

Despite training 58-51 after a Parker three-ball, Greece came back with Theo Papaloukas pulling the strings and Dimitris Diamantidis burying a game-winning shot from the arc just three seconds from the end.

Greece then beat Germany in the Gold Medal Game, 78-62.

The tournament's most beautiful moment came when Nowitzki asked to leave the game with 3:22 remaining and his side trailing, 69-52.

He looked up at the crowd that was heavily Greek and heard an incredible roar of appreciation.

Nowitzki proceeded to hug everyone - including the trainers - on the Germany bench before sitting down.

He was the MVP of the tournament.

In 2007, JR Holden came up with the play of the tournament in Madrid to give Russia a surprise 60-59 victory over hosts Spain, who were just one year removed from their gold-medal triumph at the 2006 FIBA World Championship.

Holden dribbled to his right and came to a jump stop before giving a pump fake to get his defender, Jose Calderon, off his feet.

He then put up a soft jump from 10 feet.

The ball hit the front and then the back of the rim before bouncing up and falling through the hoop for a famous Russia triumph.

In 2009, Slovenia finished without a medal yet had thousands of fans travel to Poland to support them and help the side on a roller coaster journey to fourth place.

The team lost players to injuries yet dug deep with coach Jure Zdovc doing a masterful job.

In the Semi-Finals, Slovenia lost a 76-72 overtime heartbreaker to Serbia and then against Greece in the Bronze Medal Game, they narrowly came up short.

Vassilis Spanoulis missed two free-throws with four seconds remaining and Greece on top, 57-56.

Slovenia's Bostjan Nachbar rebounded, hurried the ball up the floor and put up a runner after crossing mid court that missed everything.

In 2011, the game that everyone remembers was a Quarter-Final involving the host nation, Lithuania, and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (MKD) stunned hosts Lithuania after a frantic last 30 seconds.

Bo McCalebb was off target with a drive down the left side of the lane for MKD and Darius Songaila rebounded for Lithuania, only to make an errant pass intended for Sarunas Jasikevicius that ended up back in the hands of McCalebb.

Jasikevicius defend McCalebb well but Rimantas Kaukenas left Vlado Ilievski to double-team the naturalized guard McCalebb.

That left Ilievski wide open behind the arc, and McCalebb passed to his teammate who then drilled a go-ahead three-pointer.

Lithuania failed to score at the other end and MKD had their most famous-ever win in sports.

In 2013?

Twenty-four teams are going to be at the EuroBasket in Slovenia and there is at least one guarantee.

There is going to be plenty of drama.


I just wonder what the signature moment of this year's tournament will be.

Spain's new look
for the Eurobasket Slovenia 2013

George Eddy's International Show
Just got back from sweltering Madrid where Spain played France in a warm-up game to prepare for EuroBasket 2013 in Slovenia.

We know that these games are more important for the manner in which they are played than for the win or the loss.
France rested Tony Parker who is taking his time getting into game shape with the unstated goal of being in top form for the second round and elimination round of the EuroBasket where France will need his experience
and killer instinct in the money time the most.

His lieutenant and France's second leading scorer in the last two major competitions, Nicolas Batum, played by far his best preparation game up to now, shaking off a small ankle twist he had against Serbia last week.

The sight of Spain and his former teammate in Portland, Rudy Fernandez, got his blood boiling as Spain has eliminated France in several recent major competitions and has beaten them seven times in a row!

Despite Parker's absence, France led during long parts of the game and Spain only created a decent lead in the last minutes thanks to a one-man show by Real Madrid's Sergio Rodriguez.

This time around, Spain are showing a completely different look with a heavily guard-oriented, small ball, uptempo offense because of the absences of Pau Gasol (the former ultimate low-post weapon in FIBA basketball), Serge Ibaka and Felipe Reyes. Opponents (like Greece) will try to slow them down into a half-court mode because after Marc Gasol, the starting center and new boss on the block, the other inside players are mostly role players in the Spanish league.

When Marc takes a rest, the Spanish low post game lacks his scoring and passing skills out of the double team. This is when Spain becomes heavily-reliant on transition baskets and three-point shooting, counting on a three-guard attack to carry the offensive load. These were enough to beat France in Madrid in front of 16,000 adoring fans because those guards and wings (Fernandez, Sergio Lull, Ricky Rubio and Rodriguez) are darn good but they might not be enough (watch out for match-up problems on defense) in Slovenia in cut-throat games against teams like Greece, Turkey, France and Lithuania.

Spain does seem to have a mental edge over France thanks to its recent successes versus the French team and the fact that France accepted to play the uptempo pace in Madrid was an advantage. Coach Vincent Collet says that France has to learn how to knock Spain off its pedestal if it wants to finally break through and win the EuroBasket for the first time ever!

The keys will be their defense and the offensive production of Parker, Batum, Mike Gelabale and center Alexis Ajinca.


After what I've seen so far, the Greek team seems to be more balanced and tactically clever than either Spain or France and they sure know how to defend and control the tempo of a big game, so they are my favorites for the time being.

Title: EuroBasket Slovenia 2013 ~ Crazy first round: The 1st round at EuroBasket 2013 has been completely crazy by George Eddy

EuroBasket Slovenia 2013 Crazy First Round !

George Eddy's International Show
The first round at EuroBasket 2013 has been completely crazy.
We knew that the numerous absences of some major players would level the playing field but nobody realized to what point this would shake up the pecking order!

In Group A, for instance, France started out by losing to Germany who went on to lose three in a row while France won their next four to finish first.
France is accompanied into the second round by Mike Fratello's surprising Ukraine, who were 24th out of 24 teams in the last FIBA power ranking before the tournament, and Belgium, which made their way to the second round for the first time since 1977!

In the last game, Belgium were leading an overconfident French team by 12 at halftime before losing the second half by...29 points. When France were playing poorly, they would start games soft and slow, letting opponents rain in three-point shots and then, when France would wake up, their defense would become ferocious with Tony Parker unstoppable in the money time.

In the first round, Nicolas Batum shot 13 for 15 from two-point range and 4 for 20 from three-point range!

This kind of amazing inconsistency was also on display in a wide-open Group B where four teams finished with three wins and two defeats and The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (MKD) - Semi-Finalists two years ago - finished last.

Latvia were a big surprise finishing second while Lithuania came within one Mirza Teletovic three-pointer of being eliminated by Bosnia and Herzegovina on their last play of the last day.

First-place Serbia's two losses came against two teams that were eliminated. Is all this stuff crazy enough for you? It gets better.

He is three years younger (24, 21), but three centimeters taller (193, 196) than his much more famous brother, Goran.
Although he is very proud of his sibling and hopes to play alongside him in the NBA, he wants to be even better than Goran.
His name is Zoran Dragic, and he has been called up by the Slovenian national team as one of the country’s biggest basketball prospects.

In Group C, Croatia, who didn't look too brilliant during the preparation games, finished second with four wins but still had to beat Slovenia and then the Czech Republic on Monday to qualify for Round 2.

The Czechs' best player, Jan Vesely, who plays little for the Washington Wizards, was the best rebounder in the opening round of the tournament with 11.2 boards, while also averaging 17 points per game. It would be ironic if he steals some playing time from France's Kevin Seraphin in Washington next season, as a rebounding specialist, after Kevin decided to sit out the Eurobasket.

Now on to the most surprising group of them all, Group D.

Italy, which lost most of their preparation games even to inferior opponents, are the ONLY team to finish the first round undefeated, followed by an incredible Finnish team at 4-1 who capped off the week by beating the odds-on favorite in everyone's mind, Greece, who head into the second round with two defeats in its bags and the possibility of being eliminated if they lose again!

Former powerhouses Russia and Turkey finished with one win each and are ingloriously shown the door without ever getting going, along with Sweden who can boast about having the leading scorer of the first round in Jefferey Taylor, a somewhat unknown Charlotte Bobcats draft pick.

In these generally unsettling conditions, Spain played some suffocating defense to finish first in Group C which confirms the standing of the reigning two-time champs but they did lose a barnburner to Slovenia carried by a basketball-loving country full of rabid fans.

Behind the leadership of the Dragic brothers, Slovenia are the team that NOONE wants to meet in the cutthroat Quarter-Finals. The country can be proud of its EuroBasket organization.


The festive scene in beautiful downtown Ljubjlana, with crowds gathering in front of numerous giant screens and large screen TVs to applaud the home team, was one-of-a-kind, just like the unbelievable first round of competition we just experienced.

Title: Weekend eBA Basketball Magazine: Serbian Point Guard Vasilje Micic Getting NBA Treatment at EuroBasket 2013

Serbian Point Guard Vasilje Micic
Getting NBA Treatment at EuroBasket 2013

David Hein's Eye on the Future
Facing Tony Parker, Jose Calderon and Goran Dragic over a five-day stretch would be tough for any seasoned NBA veteran. Just imagine if you're a 19-year-old youngster facing that point guard trio at your first senior national team competition.

Welcome to the EuroBasket 2013 experience for Serbian point guard Vasilje Micic.
On Sunday, Micic and Serbia beat Parker and France 77-65 in the final game of group stage. On Wednesday, Micic's Serbs were beaten badly by Spain and Calderon 90-60 in the Quarter-Finals. On Thursday, Micic and Serbia will face off against Dragic and Slovenia with a berth at the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup at stake for the winners.

With the game against Slovenia still to come, Micic has held his own and did not embarrass himself against France and Spain. He scored two points in 15 minutes against France before picking up eight points, three assists and two rebounds against the Spanish.

Micic talked to Eye on the Future about facing Parker after the game.

"We had a game against Parker in a friendly in France, but this game was something more than that," he said.

"So I just tried to follow him (smiling) and don't make some trouble because he's maybe the best point guard in the world. I had a one-on-one against him. It's a big thing for me."

All told in Slovenia, Micic has averaged 3.7 points, 1.2 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 12.7 minutes per game while shooting 45 percent from long range.

The 1.95m guard who turned 19 in January, has experienced a heck of a summer. He helped Serbia to the silver medal at the 2013 FIBA U19 World Championship, making the All-Tournament Team.

He had two of his best games against a United States team stacked with future NBA stars such as Marcus Smart, Jahlil Okafor and Aaron Gordon.

Micic had 24 points, three assists and two rebounds in Serbia's 71-62 loss to Team USA in the Eight-Final Round before collecting 13 points and 10 assists in the Final - an 82-68 win for the Americans.

"I had a good tournament at the U19 World Championship and I knew that if I continue at that level that I can some big things for myself. I tried to continue that," said Micic looking back at the Prague tournament.

In the EuroBasket 2013 Quarter-Final loss, Spain hassled the Serbians early on but Micic did a good job handling the pressure when he was in the game.

Altogether, Serbia's legendary coach Dusan Ivkovic has been impressed with his young playmaker’s performance in Slovenia.

"He's a very, very talented guy. He was in the top five from the U19 World Championship and he has a great future ahead of him. My feeling is right that this guy understands the game beyond the juniors and this basketball is a very big difference," said Ivkovic.


Micic is already proving at EuroBasket 2013 that he's well beyond the junior level and ready to help Serbia's senior side in the future - optimally next summer at the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup.

Roller Coaster !

George Eddy's International Show
EuroBasket 2013 was one long and wild roller coaster ride full of surprises, turnarounds and comebacks.

In the end, France finally vanquished their old demons and lifted the trophy behind a sparkling MVP performance by their leader, Tony Parker.

After the immense disappointment of Game 6 in the NBA Finals when the San Antonio Spurs let the title slip away, Parker was finally rewarded for his
amazing perseverance and faithfulness to the French national team with a blowout victory over Lithuania (a team that had beaten France by 14 points in the Second Round!) in the Final.

During France's topsy-turvy path to the title, Parker's experienced voice, along with co-captains Boris Diaw and Florent Pietrus, kept the team focused on the essential goal which was to be truly ready for the Knockout Round starting with the Quarter-Finals. Here's where Nicolas Batum - who was the spitting image of France's inconsistency in the first two rounds - convinces his coach Vincent Collet to let him defend Slovenia's star go-to player Goran Dragic which was the deciding factor in France's win which silenced the home crowd.

In the Semi-Final against old nemesis Spain, France conquered one by one a long list of its past shortcomings which were largely on display in the first half as Spain confidently dominated a French team, suddenly struck by stage fright, to lead by 14.

After a moving speech by Parker in the locker room, France came back out mentally strong, matching Spain's physicality and suffocating defense while raining in 9 of 13 three-pointers after going 0 for 8 in the first half!

They erased so many past Spanish nightmares for good by making their last eight free-throws in a row in overtime to seal the victory. Even dumb luck was on their side for once as Jose Calderon missed an open game-winner from the corner in the waning seconds of regulation time.

The whole French squad was "Parker-perseverant" and Tony had his best game scoring 32 points. Collet, a master tactician, used a zone defense for the first time in literally years to confuse Spain.

In the Final, Batum, who was missing in action on offense against Spain, put France into orbit with a 17-point first half and they never looked back. Parker's heart-to-heart discussion with Nicolas the night before the Final at their hotel had paid off.

France calmly held on to their lead throughout the second half leaving Lithuania powerless. Just being in the Final was already a lot for Lithuania who erased the disappointment of losing at home two years ago in the Quarters.


In the Knockout Round, France's focus and maturity were something to admire and all the players and staff deserve applause starting with Parker who will go home to a hero's welcome after the first major title in the history of French basketball.

Title: Weekend eBA Basketball Magazine: Hezonja, Jaiteh, Sipahi, Sabonis top youngsters in Euroleague by David Hein
Post by: BGA John Volger on Oct 20, 2013, 12:56:08 AM

Weekend eBA Basketball Magazine:

Hezonja, Jaiteh, Sipahi, Sabonis
top youngsters in Euroleague

David Hein's Eye on the Future
The Turkish Airlines Euroleague tips off in earnest tonight and if you're a fan of young talent, there are definitely more than a fair share of up-and-coming stars to keep an eye on over the course of the season.

Before we get going, let's define up-and-coming. Let's take out 20-year-olds (or players born in 1993 or later).

That would mean 1992-born guys like Bogdan Bogdanovic, Leo Westerman
and Davis Bertrans from Partizan and Milan captain Alessandro Gentile as well as 1993-born studs such as Alex Abrines from Barcelona (yeah, he’s still only 20), while the pair of Luka Mitrovic and Aleksandar Cvetkovic from Red Star are too 'old'.

Obviously, the most-talked about name on the list is Barcelona's Mario Hezonja. The 18-year-old did not play for Croatia at all this summer - junior ranks or senior level - and worked hard in the pre-season in getting more comfortable in coach Xavi Pascual's system. And the work has paid off as Hezonja has already worked himself into the rotation with the Spanish giants - though of course he won't get big minutes in the stacked Barcelona team.

Mouhammadou Jaiteh, meanwhile, will likely be seeing a lot of playing time for Euroleague debutants JSF Nanterre. The 18-year-old French center made the jump to top flight basketball with the Pro A champions from last season after a strong 2012-13 campaign in the Pro B second division.

Jaiteh played a leading role for France at the 2013 U20 European Championship and turned down a chance to go to college in the United States to play professionally in France. In Nanterre's first three Pro A games this season, Jaiteh has averaged 9.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.7 blocks and 1.0 steals in about 21 minutes of action. Prepare to see plenty of him in the Euroleague.

If the numbers in the Turkish TBL league are any indication, then maybe some decent things could be expected from Fenerbahce's 1995-born duo of Kenan Sipahi and James Birsen. The 18-year-old talents led Turkey to the gold medal at the 2013 U18 European Championship and the U18 MVP Sipahi even got a brief invite to the senior national team training camp before EuroBasket 2013. Both youngsters got some good burn in Fenerbahce's convincing win in their season-opener against Mersin.

Sipahi collected eight points and six assists in 19 minutes of a 25-point blowout win while Birsen had three points and two rebounds in 16 minutes.


LKF President Arvydas Sabonis with his son Domantas at this year's U16 European Championship.  Domantas Sabonis. Yes, that's the 17-year-old son of Lithuanian legend Arvydas Sabonis. Domantas was actually born in 1996 in the United States during his father's time with the Portland Trail Blazers. The younger Sabonis was the youngest player to debut in the Liga Endesa for Unicaja in September 2012 as a 16-year-old. In this Picture by Robertas Dackus from FIBA EUROPE  presented by eBA Stats Basketball Statistics Analysis

Looking at Unicaja Malaga's roster, one name definitely stands out - Domantas Sabonis. Yes, that's the 17-year-old son of Lithuanian legend Arvydas Sabonis. Domantas was actually born in 1996 in the United States during his father's time with the Portland Trail Blazers. The younger Sabonis was the youngest player to debut in the Liga Endesa for Unicaja in September 2012 as a 16-year-old.

He averaged 14 points and 11.4 rebounds for Lithuania at the 2013 U18 European Championship as the team's only under-class player and appears to be in the plans of Unicaja coach Joan Plaza.

Sabonis scored six points to go along with three rebounds and one block in 15 minutes against Estudiantes in Malaga's season opener.

Another Lithuanian youngster who might see some playing time is 1994-born Tomas Dimsa with Zalgiris Kaunas. The Kaunas native played at the 2013 Nike Hoop Summit and followed that with a leading role in Lithuania's bronze medal-winning showing at the 2013 FIBA U19 World Championship.

Zalgiris pulling out of the VTB League might limit somewhat Dimsa's chances of playing more but look for Kaunas coach Ilias Zouros to give the youngster some minutes as the club is clearly looking to build something for the future with a roster full of young players.

Partizan have an even younger roster with eight players born in 1991 or later. The aforementioned Westermann is just 21 years old but already is considered a veteran leader on this team. The French point guard is also serving as a great mentor to 19-year-old compatriot Boris Dallo. The Nantes native moved to Partizan this past summer and has already averaged nearly 13 minutes in Belgrade's first three games this season - with averages of 2.0 points, 2.3 assists and 2.3 rebounds. Look for Dallo to really excel as he plays top level competition with similar-aged players while also getting tutelage from a true star in the making in Westermann.


Here are a couple of other names to keep an eye on a bit this season but definitely down the road: Ilimane Diop of Laboral Kuxta Vitoria (1993-born, Spain); Dimitrios Agravanis of Olympiacos (1994-born, Greece) and Cedi Osman of Anadolu Efes Istanbul (1995-born, Turkey).

Title: Weekend eBA Basketball Magazine: Bostjan Nachbar, Beno Udrih, R. Nesterovic & Jure Zdovc just what Slovenia needed !

Weekend eBA Basketball Magazine:

Jure Zdovc just what Slovenia needed !


Jeff Taylor's Eurovision
Slovenia are sort of a mystery when it comes to international basketball.

A small country that’s been on the hoops map for just a couple of decades, it has produced excellent players who have competed in the NBA or at the highest level in Europe.
The national team, though, has yet to reach the podium of a major tournament.

Some of the best known Slovenians to make it across the Atlantic are Bostjan Nachbar, Beno Udrih, Rasho Nesterovic, Sasha Vujacic and current Phoenix Suns point guard Goran Dragic.
Matjaz Smodis, Jaka Lakovic and Erazem Lorbek have all done extremely well at the highest level in Europe.

There is a huge basketball tradition in Slovenia.

In the old days, there were marvelous players from the country who suited up for Yugoslavia, including Ivo Daneu, the most valuable player of the 1967 FIBA World Championship in Montevideo.

"Ivo Daneu mastered the hook shot and used this unstoppable weapon to regularly score even from as far as the 6-7 meter range," reads the 1.80m guard's FIBA Hall of Fame bio.

Daneu had a long, distinguished career, one that saw him help Yugoslavia captured gold in Ljubljana at the 1970 FIBA World Championship.

Twenty years later and there was another terrific Slovenian in the Yugoslavian backcourt.

Jure Zdovc was a key man as Yugoslavia won the 1989 European title and the 1990 FIBA World Championship.

He was also in the 1991 Yugoslavian team that was on the road to gold at the EuroBasket in Rome when politics ended his run with the team.

While the tournament was going on, Slovenia declared independence from Yugoslavia.

The Slovenia Minister of Sport sent a fax to Zdovc at his hotel in Rome informing him that if he played in the Semi-Final, he’d be considered a traitor.

Zdovc, who received a lot of support from his Serbian and Croatia teammates at the time, spent the rest of the tournament off the court and in the hotel.

That wasn't the end of Zdovc in international basketball because he later competed for Slovenia’s national team.

Zdovc has a special place in the hearts of Slovenians.

Everyone remembers that as a difficult time for Zdovc and have a lot of respect for him as a person and a player.

It would be difficult to find anyone who doesn't admire what Zdovc was able to accomplish in his short time with the national team as coach, too.

Zdovc replaced Ales Pipan at the helm in 2009 and coached Slovenia at that year’s EuroBasket in Poland to a fourth-place finish.

He had a magic touch.

Despite injuries to key players Smodis and Dragic, Zdovc led Slovenia to important wins.

They ended up as one of the unluckiest teams in EuroBasket history.


Boštjan 'Boki' Nachbar (born July 3, 1980) is a Slovenian professional basketball player for FC Barcelona of the Liga ACB. Nachbar has been a member of the Slovenian national basketball team. He has played at two FIBA European Championships, the 2003 FIBA European Championship and the 2005 FIBA European Championship. During the 2005 FIBA European Championship, he averaged 11 points and 5 rebounds per game. He was also a member of Slovenia's national team that played at the 2006 FIBA World Championship in Japan. He was a member of Slovenia's national team that played at the 2010 FIBA World Championship in Turkey.. In this photograph photograph from KZS presented by #eBAStatsGroup #BasketballStatistics Analysis .

Serbia won against them after overtime in the Semi-Finals and Greece then beat them by a single point in the Bronze Medal Game.

Zdovc's decision not to continue at the helm after EuroBasket 2009 and to instead concentrate on his club duties with his team at the time, Union Olimpija, was a huge disappointment for neutrals like me because Zdovc had been the best coach in Poland.

It was sad to see him go.

This week, Slovenia announced the reins were back in the hands of Zdovc.

He has replaced Bozidar Maljkovic, who coached the national team the past three summers.

Slovenia hosted last year's EuroBasket and played in some thrilling games in Celje and Ljubljana, but finished fifth.

There was a lot of pride in the team, one that didn't have the services of Lorbek, but there was also an empty feeling.

Slovenia felt like they’d at long last reach the podium, but fell to eventual champions France in the Quarter-Finals.

At least by winning their Classification Round games, Slovenia were able to finish high enough to qualify for the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup.

Zdovc is upbeat.

He says there is a lot of talent in the fold, much more than he had anticipated there would be when he stepped down as coach in 2009.

"I said that four years ago I did not believe that we will again get a generation that can play at such a high level,” Zdovc said, "but now I think otherwise.

"I think it (the team) is capable of continuing the good games and results."

There are plenty of reasons to be optimistic.

Dragic is moving from strength to strength in the NBA, averaging 19.5 points and 6.0 assists per game for the Phoenix Suns.

His younger brother, Zoran Dragic, has built on his impressive EuroBasket by averaging more than 13 points per game for Unicaja Malaga, helping them reach the Top 16 of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague.

Lorbek is returning to full fitness and has, in his last couple of Euroleague outings with Barcelona, averaged 22 minutes per game.

His brother, swingman Domen Lorbek, and center Mirza Begic are only 28 and big man Gasper Vidmar is 26.

There are outstanding youngsters who are already big contributors to the national team like Jaka Blazic and Edo Muric.

There are plenty of good players, and an excellent coach.


The mood should be very good now in Slovenia.

Weekend eBA Basketball Magazine:

Draw completed for EuroBasket 2015 !

The path to EuroBasket 2015 officially took shape in Disneyland, Paris on Monday afternoon, following the Official Draw for Europe's premier basketball event.

The European basketball family gathered to witness the Draw which saw Europe's 24 elite men's national teams divided into groups of four for next year's Group Phase which will take place in Zagreb, Croatia; Montpellier, France; Berlin, Germany; and Riga, Latvia.

Defending champions and Final Round hosts France face a number of teams - Russia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Poland and Israel - who are perhaps seeking redemption following disappointing 2013 campaigns in which they failed to advance from the First Round. Finland rounds up the group.

Newcomers Iceland have been handed a baptism of fire, placed in Group B alongside hosts Germany, FIBA Basketball World Cup runners-up Serbia and fellow European basketball powerhouses Spain, Italy and Turkey.

Group C has a particular southern European feel with Croatia and Slovenia joined by the F.Y.R. of Macedonia (MKD) and Greece. Also in the group are Georgia, while the Netherlands will be hoping to make a bang upon returning to Europe's biggest basketball stage for the first time in 25 years.

Group D is an all-Baltic affair with Latvia hosting Lithuania alongside Estonia. Joining them are the Czech Republic, Belgium and Ukraine.

Assisting with the Draw were former and present internationals from the four host countries, Antoine Rigaudeau, Gunta Basko-Melnbarde, Gordan Giricek and Patrick Femerling. Also on hand were Rasho Nesterovic and Dejan Bodiroga.

Speaking first at the event, French Basetball Federation (FFBB) President Jean Pierre Siutat paid tribute to French legend Alain Gilles who recently passed away, while also making reference to current legends Tony Parker and Boris Diaw, saying that, "this generation, the current European champions, deserve to play in front of their home fans."

FIBA Europe President Turgay Demirel spoke proudly of the current strength of European basketball.

"At last summer's FIBA Basketball World Cup, six of the eight Quarter-Finalists and three of the four Semi-Finalists came from our continent, just like at the 2010 FIBA World Championship. These results show that Europe remains the heart and soul of international basketball and will continue to be so when we celebrate the 80th anniversary of EuroBasket next year."

FIBA Europe Secretary General Kamil Novak spoke of the unique situation of having four host nations for EuroBasket 2015.

"I am confident that in Croatia, France, Germany and Latvia, we have four very able host nations that will provide a spectacle which will have the eyes of the basketball world solely focused on Europe."

FIBA Treasurer and German Basketball Federation (DBB) President Ingo Weiss spoke enthusiastically of the potential of having four host countries: "The very first pan-European Basketball Championship will collect many thousands of basketball fans from the whole continent to celebrate the biggest, most colourful and happiest basketball event that ever took place in Europe."

Speaking on behalf of the Croatian Basketball Federation, Secretary General Zeljko Draksic and Lidija Pleic from the Croatian Local Organising Committee said: "It is our wish to create beautiful memories during EuroBasket so all of the fans come back again one day to enjoy our hospitality."

The Executive Director of Riga City Council, Juris Radzevichs reminded those present at the Draw that 2015 is not the first time that the city will host a EuroBasket.

"Seventy seven years ago, Riga only had eight months to build a new sports arena and organise the second European Championship in basketball. Now, eight months before EuroBasket, Riga already has a great arena for basketball and good tourism infrastructure," he said.


EuroBasket 2015 First Round groups
Group A (Montpellier): France; Finland; Bosnia and Herzegovina; Poland; Israel; Russia
Group B (Berlin): Spain; Serbia; Turkey; Italy; Germany; Iceland
Group C (Zagreb): Croatia; Slovenia; Greece; F.Y.R. of Macedonia (MKD); Georgia; Netherlands
Group D (Riga): Lithuania; Ukraine; Latvia; Belgium; Czech Republic; Estonia

A la vez el 3 se corta hacia la esquina derecha luego de ser cortinado en profundidad por el 4. Luego el 4 se desliza hasta el ala derecha. 1 pasa al 4.

B ~ Entonces 4 regatea hacia el 3 para un pase mano-en-mano y el 1 se corta hacia el aro recibiendo una cortina trasera del 5, el JMV de la Ronda 1 de la Temporada Regular Ioannis Bourousis. Si 1 no recibiera  el pase luego se corta a la esquina izquierda.

C ~ Finalmente, el 5, el JMV de la Ronda 1 de la Temporada Regular Ioannis Bourousis, establece una pantalla sobre el balón para el 3 y se manda hacia el aro. 3 sale con fuerza de la pantalla y le pasa al 5 o al 4. Un triángulo ofensivo se juega entre el 3, el 4 y el 5!

Felipe Reyes may not have made the headlines after Real Madrid's remarkable come-from-behind 101-99 victory over FC Bayern Munich on Thursday night, but without his hard work in the trenches throughout the game, Los Blancos would not have had the chance to win in the closing seconds.

Reyes totaled 20 points, 11 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal and 1 block in compiling a performance index rating of 30, which was highest among all players in the round.

A ~ First option is when 1 dribbles to the left wing, and 3 sets a cross screen for 4, the Regular Season Round 6 MVP Luke Harangody.
Then 4 comes hard off the screen to the left low post and 3 slides up to the top of the key being downscreened by 5.

B ~ But the turkish plays often this choice. 3 sets a cross screen for 4, but 4 slides up to the top of the key being downscreened by 5. 4, the Regular Season Round 6 MVP Luke Harangody, can receive the ball at the top for a shoot or can curl the 5's screen and slides down to the left low post.

Entonces el 4 viene con fuerza fuera de la pantalla para el poste bajo a la izquierda y el 3 se desliza hasta la parte superior de la llave recibiendo abajo una pantalla del 5.

B ~ Pero los Turcos juegan menudo esta opción. El 3 establece una pantalla en cruz para el 4, pero el 4 se desliza hasta la parte superior de la llave recibiendo una pantalla abajo del 5. El 4, el JMV de la Ronda 6 de la Temporada Regular Luke Harangody, puede recibir el balón en la parte superior para un lanzamiento o puede rondar la pantalla del 5 y deslizarse hacia abajo hasta el poste bajo izquierdo.

With its season on the line, defending Euroleague champion Real Madrid found a go-to leader in center Gustavo Ayon, who put up career-high numbers to keep his team alive and become the MVP of Round 9 of the Euroleague Regular Season on Friday. Ayon was relentless as Madrid rallied after halftime to defeat direct rival FC Bayern Munich 67-86 on the road. The second-year big man posted a career-high 22 points on near-perfect shooting of 8 for 10 on two-pointers and 6 of 7 free throws. He also did it all on defense, recording the most steals by any Euroleague player this season, 6, and blocking 3 shots. Add in his 9 rebounds and 4 assists and Ayon's performance index rating climbed to 41, his personal high and the second-best of the season in the competition. He wasn't the only center with a super-sized effort in Round 9. In this photograph from EuroLeague presented by eBA Stats Basketball Statistics Analysis .

Coming off a three-game losing streak and hosting the group leader, Olympiacos Piraeus needed inspired play on Friday and got more than enough from a familiar source, Georgios Printezis, the MVP for Top 16 Round 6. The veteran forward and two-time champion stepped up with the biggest offensive performance of his 187-game Euroleague career to help the Reds right their ship with a 89-77 victory over dangerous Khimki Moscow Region. To his usual array of two-point shots, of which he made 9 of 13, Printezis added 3-for-5 accuracy from the three-point arc and made his 3 free throw attempts to score 30 points, several more than his previous best in the Euroleague. His 3 triples matched his second-best total in Euroleague play, as did his 9 rebounds, too. And with an assist and 6 fouls drawn, Printezis amassed a 37 performance index rating, best among Euroleague players this week, and another personal high in his 10th full Euroleague season.

EuroLeague Regular Season Round 1 Mini-movie
The distinctive sights, sounds and emotions of basketball the EuroLeague way were on parade throughout Round 1 of the regular season this week. Check them all out in our mini-movie!
And watch the best plays of the Round 1 !

Ricky Hickman’s first EuroLeague game for EA7 Emporio Armani Milan was a memorable one. Not only did he lead his team to a thrilling 99-97 victory over his former team, Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv, but he earned MVP honors for Regular Season Round 1 in the process. Hickman sparkled with 22 points, 3 assists and 3 steals for a performance index rating of 32, which was the most among all players on winning teams in Round 1. He made 2 of 3 shots from downtown and 12 of 15 free throws after drawing 12 fouls. He didn’t just produce in volume. Hickman came up big with the game on the line by scoring his team’s final 11 points over the last 2:40 to secure the victory. The player with the highest index rating of opening week was on the losing end in that game; Andrew Goudelock led Maccabi’s comeback and finished the game with 27 points, 5 assists and an index rating of 33. Three players tied for the third-highest index rating of Round 1: Justin Doellman and Ante Tomic of FC Barcelona Lassa and Latavious Williams of Unics Kazan each posted 25s in Barcelona’s 63-69 come-from-behind win in Kazan. Doellman amassed 23 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals. Tomic tallied 13 points, 9 boards, 2 assists and 2 steals. And Williams collected 12 points and tied a club record with 15 rebounds.

Bogdan Bogdanovic is proving once again that he is a big-time player for big-time games.

In doing so, Bogdanovic became the first player in competition history to win MVP honors in the first two games of a playoff series.

Bogdanovic posted 25 points – which set a team record for points in the playoffs – on 5-for-7 two-point and 5-for-8 three-point shooting. He also pulled 8 rebounds and dished 6 assists. Bogdanovic edged teammate Ekpe Udoh, who was MVP twice in last season’s playoffs, for the Game 2 honor. Udoh tallied 22 points on 11-of-14 shooting, 9 rebounds and 2 blocks for an index rating of 34. Gustavo Ayon of Real Madrid was next with an index rating of 30 in an 80-84 loss at the hands of Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul. Ayon did not miss on 6 shots in amassing 16 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists. Anadolu Efes Istanbul big man Bryant Dunston also posted big numbers in his team’s 71-73 road win at Olympiacos Piraeus.
