    Pinheiros is for real this year. They improved a lot regarding last two years, is it the coach? If they keep going like this they'll certainly join the group of Brasília, Flamengo and Franca as the greats of Brazilian basketball.

    They put some real money to get a pretty good squad. I think it's more about the quality of the players than the coach, althought he is doing a good job as well.

    Much more players than the coach (still young, learning and a bit imature). They have add Figueroa, Marquinhos and Bruno Fiorotto. Three great starters to their team, plus a good bench player in André Góes.

    They had already enough talent to be Top 5 in Brazil with Olivinha, Shamell and Morro.

    But, they still need to get more depth to their roster. Beside Góes and Morro, they dont have any real talent in the bench.

    This would be the first international title for Pinheiros. I'm going to the arena and see if we can grab it. I'll be back with some news.

    Tough luck man, looks like it was a good game though. Maybe next year and there's still the NBB title

    Great game, and althought we didn't win it's nice to see your team fighting for a title.
