Here we go for another round of Monday morning cigarettes!
- Always a beauty, the ACB has come up with the best plays of the most spectacular players of the season so far. And no surprise here: The top 3 is composed of Sergio Llull, Quinton Hosley and Marcus Haislip.
- How to come back from a 16-point deficit against TAU Ceramica Vitoria.
- A preview of the Semaine des As, the French version of the Copa del Rey.
- An interview with former Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket and Indiana Pacer Travis Best, who plays now for Air Avellino in Italy.
- After the arrival of Tony Parker as shareholder in ASVEL Villeurbanne, French basketball media discuss how supposed future French National Team coach Vincent Collet reacts when he’s the boss of TP for the nationals while working as Parker’s employee at ASVEL.
- Sometimes, European basketball fans talk about the lesser media coverage of the Euroleague in their respective countries and envy the all-around marketing machine of the NBA. But what happens these days around All-Star Day makes me think we have Euroleague coverage sufficient enough for me, because who cares if Allen Iverson cut his hair?????? I read at least four reports about that story in the few RSS feeds I subscribe to. When will the Euroleague follow and talk us about Igor Rakocevic’s newest haircut? I can’t wait…
- With the FMP City of Belgrade Tournament, 6 of the 8 participants to the Nike International Junior Tournament are known. Admitted to the event, organized during the Final Four in Berlin, are Kalise Gran Canaria, Montepaschi Siena, Lietuvos Rytas, Unicaja Malaga, FMP Zeleznik and Hemofarm Vrsac. Additionally, two teams will be determined by a wildcard playoff.
