Here's a nice article about the begginings of Serbian(and Yugoslavian) basketball, an interesting read.

Think this preview is a must read for anyone who will be watching Olympiacos - Zalgiris when the series start on Wednesday.

Lays out trends, components and styles of strong sides of the teams, mentions weaknesses in context to how it could potentially affect the strategic aspect of the series and shares plenty of contextualized and significant footage from both of these two teams' Euroleague regular season games between each other and their other Euroleague RS games.

Saras is definitely a top 5 coach Euroball + NBA combined right now. The consistency with which Zalgiris execute their stuff on both ends, taking every player's strengths and maximizing them in a coherent collective structure, marvellous set plays that bring them crucial clutch buckets... He's having an insane season.

What defies coaches job - the progress of his team play. From beginning of the last season, till now "Žalgiris" is getting better and better, and individually players are developing.
Today's gutsy win on the road against "Olympiakos" just proves that. Šaras is perfectionist and a little bit maniacal. BUT his guys know, that coach is 100% behind them and the way Šaras navigates through the game is like a conductor in charge of the orchestra.

Very similar to Obradovic in this regard. Current Jasikevicius is the first coach in years who I'd put at the same tier as Obradovic that season. His future is unbelievably promising.

I just wish Šaras will stay in Kaunas as long as possible. Team looks on a right track, with him "Žalgiris" could have a long run of successful seasons. Šaras in Kaunas can do whatever he seems needed, nowhere else he would have such a commanding authority.
