EuroBasket & European Basketball Tournaments Analysis • Análisis Torneos Europeos de Baloncesto y Eurobasket

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.

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.
