The first phase of the Euroleague regular season is over. So here we go for the next phase and how could you better start than with a good amount of smoking cigarettes?
- The story of the week may be the following. You remember probably the canceled Bundesliga game of Ludwigsburg versus Giessen two weeks ago: The game was booked as a 1-0 win for Ludwigsburg. Now, ALBA Berlin had to play in Bamberg on Saturday and here are the thoughts that head coach Luka Pavicevic had during the post-game press conference: For me as a coach, it is unacceptable to play that early (Saturday, 14.30) after having finished our Euroleague game only on Thursday night (in Ljubljana). I went to our GM Marco Baldi and informed him about my idea to skip this game and pay a fine like Giessen and go home with a loss but being fresh again for the next games. However, he outvoted me andtherefore the Bamberg fans can thank him because without him, there would have been no game today. I will let this go without comment…
- Double overtime in Gran Canaria.
- SLUC Nancy will try to get an A License for permanent membership in the Euroleague as of next season. The management of the French team will meet with Euroleague CEO Jordi Bertomeu on this subject this week.
- The weekly Brandon Jennings watch: DNP.
- Always nice to read: Jonathan Givony’s trip through Europe.
