what about Boban? I know he wanted to play


Big Boban is with the national team at the moment and he is doing fine. Keep in mind that there is a fierce competition on center position in Serbian NT even after Jokic announced that he will not play. Raduljica is always the first option and there are also new player of Real Madrid, Ognjen Kuzmic and Vladimir Stimac who, unlike Marjanovic had excellent season with his team Besiktas. Stimac is also fan favorite for many and kinda mascot of the team for years. Coach Djordjevic also said that Marjanovic is a slow player and that he does not like players with whom you must adjust your style play and not vice versa. So Boban must to fight for his position in the team, he is not certain in the roster.

well, lets be honest here, almost every single country from Europe has a good naturalized player mostly from US. Why wouldnt Slovenia have one?

Throughout the history we have always had naturalized players from former YU republics, and none of them ever brought any upside or made a difference in our national team, Randolph fills our weak 4/5 position.

Hats off to Nesterovič and company, amazing move!


There are a lot of national teams that don't.

I don't see any naturalized players for Lithuania, Serbia, Greece, France, Italy and so forth.

Hopefully Davis Bertans will play (he will decide sometime at the end of June), also let's see if Pasecniks will be available after the draft. Either way, what do you think - are they potentially the second best team in group D?

My prediction for Top 12 if everyone is available:

Porzingis, Pasecniks, Meiers
Davis Bertans, Smits
Timma, Silins
Dairis Bertans, Janicenoks, J.Berzins
Strelnieks, Blums


That's a hell of a talented team they got....


Lol 90% of French players are naturalized. In every team sport for France.

The next 12 players for this European Championship for France :

I can do the same list for any sport in France and show you than at least 90% of them are all born and raised in France, ignorant !!

Except that they are not. Never mind the fact that it's an actual FIBA rule that you can only have 1 naturalized player on a team. So no team could have in actual fact more than 1 out of 12 players (8%) of the team that is naturalized.

Sure some countries find ways to get around those rules, like Turkey for example (which has for years taken players from eastern Europe and changed their names), but France is not one of them.

We can understand quite well that you obviously want "purity", like a certain vegetarian painter from Germany/Austria did.
Step 1: Trade Melo for draft picks and scrubs.
Step 2: Resign Rose for another year.
Step 3: Make Noah & Rose play 40+ minutes every single game in 2017/18.
Step 4: Get lucky in the lottery and draft Doncic.
Step 5: ...
Step 6: Profit/Championship!

Big blow for Spain...Sergio Llull is injured and he will be out from basketball for six months.

How are your teams looking in exhibition games so far? Besides the game where Spain lost Sergio Llull and then crapped the bed, they have dominated. Just beat Venezuela 90-44 today.

Lithuania cant shoot to save their lives, terrible shooting team. Valanciunas looks awful as well. Gudaitis and Motiejunas combo is very good defensively at least.
