    Both Youth teams of U19 and U20 were good but the coaches were less than amateur.
    Charalampopoulos had 7 or 9 straight on Birutis. He couldn't guard him away from the basket.

If he continue working, he can be a very useful player for Real Madrid, and for our senior NT.
    Yusta is generaly underated. Sometimes people tend to make mistake, misjudging a great 3point shooter for a great talent, while in fact shooting isn't all you need at higher levels and Yusta wasn't shineing with his shooting abilities 2-3 years ago when I've seen him. He has a really nice upside in my opinion, was the best player in junior Real team along with Dončič in the recent period. Dončič got the hype due to age, Dos Anjos due to his height, Radončić due to potential and I rarely saw Yusta getting the same kind of attention, which is a shame.

    CoachZ, as far as Šiško, rumours are he is a headcase. At least that's why Olimpija supposedly ignored him for the next season. His dad was also a top-notch talent in ex-Yu but than just stopped playing at one point.

    We were very close to win, but didn't survive in this drama. Our main pg failed in the tournament. I'm satisfied with the bigs though.

    There wasn't anything wrong with Birutis defence against Charalampopoulos on the 3 point line Charalampopoulos was simply raw.

    To me it's complete mysticism why our most creative player played of the ball entire tourament... Magnificent coaching...Even such robot shooters as Berucka was messing around all night long...

    they blew them out in every part of the game, great job. Last year they had done the same, +20pts, strange.

    Credit to the one and only ODED KATASH, great coach.

    The offence looks amazing, endless pick'n'rolls + weak side cutting.

    A lot of transition game points.

    Thats how modern basketball looks like

    Well congratulations Greece for winning gold. There's quite a few talents in the '96,'97 generation. Perhaps even more than the '90 generation. I think Charalampopoulos, Papagiannis, Mitoglou, Dorsey, Kostas Antetokoumpo, and Koniaris look like good prospects. And there is also a good generation in between which produced Giannis Antetokoumpo and Papapetrou. So the '94 generation serves as a nice bridge. So I take it that Greece will be formidable starring the WC in 2019.

    Also a nice performance by Israel who had to play an away game.

    Few years ago I said 97. born Croatian generation is most talented ever in our history. Funny this kids didn't even win B division. If we don't count what they won with 96. born kids they are one of worst teams we ever had. But 3 guys Bender, Zubac and Žižić are already in NBA, and there are some others like Slavica, Mazalin, Bađim etc . who can make good pro career. ..
    Jordi Bertomeu sucks!

    I could not watch it man, sorry. But Korkmaz played like an asshole the whole tournament, 1 vs 5, so maybe Yurtseven was fed up with him. But I don't know the specifics of that instance.

    anyway, I like Korkmaz very much, but he was not a team player this year.

    I could not watch final, but in the two previous games I did, Greece played with amazing intensity. Something we have not seen in years even on senior NT. Congrats for the gold.

    and Charalampopoulos again showed, like in every youth tournaments before, that he's a very solid prospect. Strangely though, I've seen him playing center a few times, and he was very effective. This is something that won't work at senior level, though.

    I checked your roster, and I'm sure you did not base that judgment on this roster . anyway, Romania beating you does not show their future is brighter.

    Answer found: they needed to play against Malta!

    in 6 games, Davis averaged 38.5mpg(!), 26.8ppg, 10.3 rpg, 1 apg.

    Maybe Korkmaz didn't like the fact that he was 'forced' to play in this tournament after signing with the Sixers. Thankfully we didn't push Papagiannis to play there too.

    Hehe, I have the same problem. 97' was one of the more talented generations for Slovenia in years. Čančar and Mesiček missing, while Šiško underperformed and here we go, back to div B
