National Team Men SerbiA (fans and interesteds) 

Post#1 » by stoo » Sat Jun 19, 2021 7:17 pm

There've been first 2 preparation games today and yesterday

Serbia 80 : 68 Puerto Rico
Serbia 107 : 67 Mexico

Tomorrow a friendly game vs Greece and one more against Mexico before Olympic Qualification Tournament, where only 1 team qualifies out of Serbia, Italy, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Senegal

I like how we play. It's clear Kokoskov (coach) is doing a great job. Looks like everybody is executing their roles quite perfectly. It looks like an NBA style of play, which I prefer to slower pace obviously. It allows to show off talent, and I believe it will look even better with several better players that didn't play. We have solid semi-stretch centers, especially offensively, several combo guards that can playmake, shoot and run, typical 6man type of players, good 3pt shooting, few solid 3&D guys and intelligent team players

I'd primarily like to discuss our roster, whether u agree with my selection.
If you're predominantly an NBA fan (like me), a lot of these names might mean nothing to you
Final team will be 12 players. I colored 15 that I think will have the best chance to make it. I don't know the severity of injuries, shouldn't be long-term

Personally, I'd have:

Bogdan (avblty concern)
Micic
Teodosic
Nedovic (inj concern)
Bjelica
Lucic
Kalinic
Dobric
Boban
Petrusev
Milutinov (inj concern)
Avramovic

3 back ups : Jovic Andjusic Davidovac

GUARDS
Bogdan Bogdanović (Hawks)
Vasilije Micić (Euroleague MVP, Finals MVP and Champion, Turkish Lague Champion)
Miloš Teodosić (Reigning 2-time Eurocup MVP, Italian Champion and Finals MVP)
Nemanja Nedović (LaVine type of player, injured)
Ognjen Jaramaz (same thing, injured)
Marko Gudurić, (injured)
Stefan Jović (experienced pg)
Aleksa Avramović (pg/scorer)
Danilo Anđušić (scorer)
Dragan Milosavljević (2way)

FORWARDS
Nemanja Bjelica
Vladimir Lučić (6'7 1st team all EuroLeague, 2way)
Nikola Kalinić (2way)
Ognjen Dobrić (2way)
Dejan Davidovac
Branko Lazić (Luguentz Dort SE)
Vanja Marinković
Dalibor Ilić

CENTERS
Boban Marjanović
Filip Petrušev (ABA league MVP and Top scorer)
Nikola Milutinov, (injured)

last preparation match last Wednesday

Serbia 81:77 Mexico

we still haven't play in full strength and will miss several players that would make the olympic team if we qualify

this is our 12 man roster. These names might mean nothing to most, but this is a very balanced team I have hopes for

Micic
Teodosic
Jovic
Avramovic
Andjusic
Milosavljevic

Bjelica
Kalinic
Dobric
Davidovac

Marjanovic
Petrusev

Also, shout out to Serbian women team for winning the European Championship

I'm ok with how we play. We rested few players for this game and haven't play with much urgency until last few minutes
