Here we go again and the smokiest cigarettes from all around Europe have been looked at, selected and are presented to you right here.
- It’s mystery time in Zagreb at the moment. After the departure of American PG Earl Calloway without any obvious reason, now Damir Markota did not join the team on a preseason trip to Russia without explanations.
- But there is also good news coming from Croatia as you can see by this big smile.
- Brandon Jennings played a practice scrimmage with Virtus Roma. And got introduced to European fouls.
- One week before the start of the ACB, TAU Ceramica has already won their first title by winning the Supercopa on a 86-85 win in the final against CAI Zaragoza. The former Seattle SuperSonics/now Oklahoma City Thunder draftee Serge Ibaka won the Slam Dunk Contest.
- The German Women Basketball Bundesliga will broadcast all of their games live on Zap Internet TV.
- The German Bundesliga, in collaboration with the federation, has created a fund for youth players. This means that every Bundesliga team that gives minutes to players younger than 24 years old earns money. How much? It’s €10,000 per gameday, divided according to the minutes played. And who gets what can be seen here.
- And we still stay in Germany for the most incredible story of the weekend. During the National Streetball Championship, eight-year-old Aaron Prenszlau won the Slam Dunk competition. Having not been at the contest, I don’t know what happened there, but he is officially the youngest ever slam dunk champion.
- After his first high-flying impressions, Josh Childress is reported to have suffered a minor injury and has been sidelined for a week.
