    Daniel Hackett - Antonio Maestranzi - Andrea Cinciarini
    Marco Belinelli - Marco Mordente
    Danilo Gallinari - Luigi Datome - Marco Carraretto
    Stefano Mancinelli - Andrea Renzi
    Andrea Bargnani - Marco Cusin

    4 Marcos, 3 Andreas + 1 Daniel & Danilo, not much fantasy uh...

    This is who we are, expect the big three to play at least 30 minutes per game and let's hope Bargnani doesn't get in foul trouble, or we'll have to rely on Cusin and Renzi...
    We're gonna miss Crosariol's size and intimidation down low, we could have had Aradori or even Gentile as backup SG instead of Mordente, who's way past his prime and I don't think can give much help.

    I agree with you, why not bring Gentile? He could get some vital experience with the big boys, which could launch him for the future.

    Bargnani has to stay out of foul trouble, no 2 ways about it.

    I think Hackett could be the mister x[no not Galliani's mister x] for this roster. If he has a big tourney and can play multiple postions, Italia can really think about the top 6 or higher.

    That is, if the Big 3 plus Manc play up to their expected standards

    carraetto for 10 minutes is better than gentile IMO actually,carraretto has more experience than gentile,better in defense than gentile ...

    in this rooster gentile must be a member of supporting cast,not the ideal for him,so like mebmer of supproting cast is better carraretto IMO...


    our rooster is just official:

    hackett-maetsranzi-cinciarini
    belinelli-carraretto-mordente
    gallinari-datome
    mancinelli
    bargnani-cusin-renzi

    I didn't see Carraretto very well in these friendlies... he was launching bricks wide open and defended very bad for his standard. I hope he's fine for the start of EC or that 10 minutes of play will cost us much...

    Also i don't trust in Mordente very much (another old guard without speed or 3p accuracy)... maybe Gentile is too young but a guy like Aradori (deadly 3p shooter and good rebounder) would have been much more useful as backup SG imo.

    Definitely, I didn't understand why Pianigiani chose to leave him at home.
    We really need more scoring options besides the big three, Aradori imo is the only one who could have brought some instant offense, potentially he can score plenty of points in a few minutes.
    I'm afraid we will struggle in getting buckets by the other players, unless Mancinelli will be particularly effective in the low post, as this would also create space for open shots. Maybe also Datome could help us offensively, but he's streaky and I didn't see him very accurate in these friendlies. Plus, he's in a position in which he may not get a lot of minutes.

    Anyway, I'm afraid that rebounds and low-post defense will be our biggest issues, even more than finding other finishers.

    With this team, Italia def needs to spread the floor . Lack of post play is noticable, unless Manc can be that guy. I still thnk why not have Gentile and Aradori on this roster. They will be important for the future, and are really good now. Mordente and Carraretto don't add much in this tourney, I am sorry. In Serie A, maybe, but not in Eurobasket

    Default Gallinari playmaker

    I have red an article how overcome the problem of lack of a good playmaker: let Gallinari play in that position! In your opinion it could be a practicable idea ?

    I'd agree, though this means we will always have to be accurate and consistent from the arc to win games, but all of our shooters are very streaky.

    I'm still convinced that Mancinelli is the key with his point forward and post play skills. If he gets in rhythm we'll be dangerous.

    I just wrote on Italy-Serbia thread how Italy is most overrated team on Eurobasket... Anyway, I think you're wrong. If Bellineli, Bargnani or Galinarri weren't Italians, they would see NBA only on TV...

    poeta-cinciarini-de nicolao
    belinelli-hackett-aradori
    gallinari-mancinelli-datome-gentile
    bargnani-gigli-melli
    cusin-crosariol-cuccarolo(chiotti)

    i hope that pianigiani use bargnani in his real role of power forward..
