This might be one of the most sad games in Germany’s basketball history. Pascal Roller, Germany’s starting point guard announced that he will stop playing after the Olympics. Another German seems to follow him now: Dirk Nowitzki. Of course Nowitzki will keep playing for the Dallas Mavericks, but this might be his last appearance with the German national team ever, meaning somebody else will leave too: Chris Kaman. No Nowitzki, No Kaman – that easy.
After the terrible loss against China, Team USA – a team that even convinced or suprised the biggest “haters” – is waiting in the last game of group play. Sportingbet’s odds for a win of Germany is 15.00 – a US win equals to … 1.00 – meaning you will not make a dime on betting on Team USA.
At least Germany is not the only team with bad odds like that – another team is Angola .. way to go Germany!
Stiil, here is the live blog of Pascal Roller, Dirk Nowitzki and Chris Kaman’s last game wearing the German “Adler”.
