Hey i want to go to a Red Star game next Saturday. Can anybody tell me in which arena they are now play?
For a Red Star game, i probably wont need to purchase a ticket a few days before the game?!

Or have been the games sold out so far?

I tried google translate but it was still a bit confusing for me.

Thanks in advance for some advices.

You should have no problems to get tickets at the arena. Radnicki is not considered to be a big time rival (Correct me if I'm completly wrong) that drwas crowds.
Pionir Arena...take a taxi, its not that expensive and its safes time.

67:66 for Maccabi. Olimpija was close. I was not aware they have a game tomorrow against Hapoel. I guess they underestimated Olimpija today. Too bad we made some fullish mistakes (Ćapin's turnover or lets say Ohayon's steal won the game) at the end in clutch time.

Reffs made some major mistakes in the first and third quarter which damaged Olimpija but I guess at the end, bottom line, they didn't win the game for Maccabi. Well deserved win.

how do you feel now for be in ABA league? do you have better games than previus years?

Joško Poljak Fan

I don't resent the lose ball to Čapin, that stuff happens and he isn't the most reliable person there, which I am sure Filipovski is aware of.
I resent him holding onto the ball and in particular not trusting Salin, Bertrans or as in some other games Murič and Blažič, since that's at least 2/5th of the lineup in most cases, the circulation is poor and the play later ends with one on one in way too many occasions there.

Maccabi was almost caught on the left foot, hopefuly nevertheless that'll improve Olimpija's confidence. Bertrans and Salin are clearly getting more and more confident, now waiting for Blažič to gain the same.

Clearly this year's Olimpija lacks experience heavily, that's why Jagodnik is missed even more. If Markota and Woodside would decide to stay for one more year, potentialy Rothbart and Čapin as well, they wouldn't be as easy to beat in 2012/13.


Congrats to Laško. They've barely lost to Zagreb in a bit doubtfull circumstances last week and they seem to be improving with every week. Škifić and Čohadarević finaly play as players.


By far probably the weakest team in the league Zlatorog just shocked one of the favourites for the title Partizan. Zlatorog won 72:62.Helios does seem to have bigger potential in the long term, as for now, I am not really sure they're really stronger than Laško. Both are most of all, way too unexperienced for this level.


But anyways congratulations to slovenian youth,they showed that Slovenia have nice basketball future...
From your mouth to God's ears :)


Overall, I can't help myself but to believe the level of Adriatic league decreased this season, without Maccabi that is.

For me there's no doubt, even though we haven't lost yet, I can't compare any Israeli team with Olimpija and definitely not with Partizan.
The right decision for us would be to ditch Israeli league and join the Adriatic permanently, unfortunately there's some stupid ULEB rule that says we must compete in our domestic league if we wanna play in the Euroleague, but still I doubt that Jordi will kick us out even if we ditch the joke called Israeli league.

personaly i'm not for teams out of ex yugoslavia because only one reason. it means 1 less spot for some of our teams to have chance to play good competition.

anway, we can "survive" one team like maccabi, it's not all bad with it. one institution like maccabi brings lot of positives as well.....imo, just hope this trend doesn't continiue like lisec, bilic and co. wannt with teams like oly, panathinaikos, efes...because then whole that idea of regional league losenig purpse wich was giving our clubs more quality competition...if their idea wasn't to give 4-5 clubs more quality competition???

league should stay in similar format, but should add 2nd league to get more clubs invold since from day league was started domestic clubs that don't play this leagues are twice weaker then this years zlatorog or helios....and croatian basketball needs split, sibenik, zadar etc...serbian basketball needs cacak, valjevo, bosnian basketball needs strong bosna at first place, but clubs from tuzla and other places ...and so on

Lorbek claimed that there definately won't be 2nd or 3rd team out of the ex-Yu region and that the head of adriatic league is unanimous with this.

You're definately right here. Teams from Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia and BiH not playing in AL lack heavy matches they're losing by top teams playing in adriatic league and the level of their play is definately dropping.
I personaly would be in favour of shortening the Adriatic League season, establishing some qualification tournaments for it or some other way that would ensure more serious bball national competitions.

Inviting Nymburk was a mistake, imo, and management of Adriatic league should avoid inviting mid-level teams outside this region. As a matter of fact, I see only Maccabi as a good option here, being a club with such tradition, quality and large fan base, but also being a lonely island like they are. It's a win-win situation for both sides.

Second league is a must, if we want to take a step forward. I believe it's the only way to progress and two leagues would be able to reach demands of our top clubs, just like YUBA I & II did.

Cedvita gave Maccabi a good fight. I think they've played better than Partizan in Nokia and I can see why they are 7:1.

All and all it was a very good basketball game. Draper gave an excellent performance and Pnini was also very efficient today.

Even though it was a high scoring game both Defenses were actually quite good and that says a lot about the level of game that was played.

Do you think Partizan (without Pecovitch) has any chance against Cedvita? :)

Olimpija's game right now is truly frustrating.
Green, Varda, Čapin are the guys Olimpija's game is supposed to rely on, instead of that Salin, Bertrans and Murič have bigger positive impact :rolleyes:

Congrats to Cibona.
Our fear only two months ago is becoming the best thing that could happen to Olimpija, hopefully Green would get an offer from some NBA team so Blažič could take his minutes. At least I'd get over losing due to kids developing this way... Green getting an NBA offer? on a second thought sth. is wrong with me to actualy write that down... we're screwed

Even guys that should within a normal team be good contributors as Markota and Woodside will have second thoughts (wait... that's an understatement) for staying in Ljubljana any longer than they are obliged.

Why is that you guys hate Green`s guts so much? I thought he forced some shots and overhandled in Barcelona game, but it not like there was better option than him trying to create something. In fact, i think this whole situation where he is no. 1 option has made him look bad. He was always known as blue-colllar team player with good defense and ability to hit spot up shots.

I don`t think he has what it takes to be rotation player in the NBA, so not sure if you will get rid of him. :)

Hate is a strong word, more of a resentment (with a good portion of frustration along)
It's for his lack of effort in defense. Always being that split of a second too late, too soft or giving up on that first step shows lack of desire/motivation to play or underestimation for that matter, not hard to notice after longer span of games. It's obvious he can do way more in that department and personaly even if I might rant over few missed shots now and than I won't resent those, but I'm never easy on players giving up on defense. His head is in NBA and he probably has issues facing the fact NBA is getting away from him.

You're right on the fact on too many occasions there aren't any more creative options, but that's a longer rant that I'll prefer avoiding as I don't have all the facts.

Olimpija so far showcased it's best performances with Thompson/Markota/Bertrans/Rothbart on 4&5, Murič, Salin and Woodside in the game (same with Cibona, they've made the comeback for zillionth time this season), yet they barely get to play together in the same rotation once per 3 games for 10 minutes or so, honestly I don't get it.

With Siroki winning against Buducnost, they've improved to 4-5, not bad at all. This was a good way to end a bad losing streak for the club. And now, Siroki are just four spots away from having a Final Four spot. If only Bosnia could bring two teams...maybe then we could bring a team with more than one Bosnian on it :D I would've liked KK Bosna to be here, but we haven't even been able to win the Bosnian league for a while now. Anyways, here's hoping Siroki do good! :D

Woodside left the club due to irregular payments after the game vs. Široki, salaries being two months behind (might be more), Murič is injured and won't be able to play for a while and rumours are few more players might leave the way Woodside did. Salin or Bertrans might even be able to walk away without a buyout.

Is there a sponsor problem or bad management or what? I mean Olimpija recovered nicely last year and this year had nice start of the season and i thot they are doing well decreasing the debt but suddenly everything collapsed.I even read on some slovenian portal Rajgelj beeing compared to Mamic:D

this year they lost 2 cases in courts.. but actually nobady kknow who is behind this collapse... i think that both side are guilty..

BBB are boycoting Cibona 8-9 years ore more. can't even remeberBBB were never Cibona fans.. even at Cibona games they would be cheering Dinamo name instead of Cibona..
same as on RK Badel Zagreb handball games.. when they finally got their football club name back they stopped coming and wanted Božo to arrange them free tickets.. which he didn't do..

same as Cibona was and unfortunately still is as it will take some time to change that..
considering all current political problems in Slovenia they were not atractive enough for the politicians in their games in this last couple of months.. (atleast that is my point of view)..
Olimpija did decrease it's debt during last year and a half but the debt is still huge according to some of the guys here..
and since euroleague season is over for them us players are trying to find an easier way out..
but Olimpija won't collapse.. it's just a shame that it's same old story all over again..

Yes,there is a logic there,but even if Olimpija is a politic toy,it's still a basketball "symbol" of Slovenia(no offense to Krka:D),and who ever manipulate with club i don't see the reason why not to pay salaries to players and lose entire team.I can understand they let go players that were brought just for Euroleague,but if I read correctly,players like Salin and others will left the club also...

Edit: I know last Cedevita game there were 600 attendants, can i expect more vs Partizan?Cedevita has moved from Sutinska vrela hall to Dom Sportova II hall..
but it could be that because of the futsal tournament, which is usually in this time of the year organized in Dom Sportova, for Partizan game they will move back in Sutinska Vrela..
I'm not sure I can't find any info yet..
edit: I don't think there will be more then a thousand people on the game..

sunday game will be played in KC Dražen Petrović but with Zagreb as a host.
You can buy tickets on the day of the game on cashdesks before you enter the hall..
you should buy blue or red sector (plavi or crveni) tickets (middle of the court)..
I don't know what are the prices with Zagreb as a host but let's say blue or red sector is 50 kn (approximately 7 €).

Maccabi did a great job defending on Gay, Prepelič and Pašalič, those guys normaly score a vast majority of points for Helios, while they had no chance against some Maccabi caliber defenders.
17 y.o. Bolčina scored 11 in his first adriatic league appearance and overall could look much worse covering Sofo than he actualy did :p

Laško was in the end too short in Podgorica. They are a PF and a PG away from actualy being a pretty nice team, which isn't all that bad considering they're mostly relying on players younger than 22 y.o.

A great game for Maccabi, the team looks much better in the last 2 games, it seems like the bad form is behind us now.
Papaloukas had a great game, I hope it's a sign that he's starting to play basketball at last, after even Ohayon looked better than him (much better).
Sofo had some fun, so did James, Helios had nothing in the paint, being outscored 52-8 in points in the paint. Hendrix had 4 blocks, so he didn't suffer as well
@JPF-I really liked Bolcina's game, he seems like a promising young player and he showed much more confidence than you'd expect a 17 year old that plays his first Adriatic league game.
Their main problem is lack of anything inside, not only the big men but also the small guys can't really go inside.. they had 7/30 2 pointers, Bolcina was responsible for 4 of their 7 2pointers :p and of these 2pointers only 4 were made inside the paint.. you can't expect too much when you play like that but I guess I'm being too judgmental because after all it's not a Euroleague team or anything.
Another player that was pretty good was Jeftic, he had some good shots from outside but that was pretty much everything he did

JuJu
12-17-2011, 08:43 PM
From the beginning one never had the feeling Partizan can win this game.
Cedevita way more aggressive in the defense, Draper and Owens with some nice offensiv games.
Partizan tried to pick up the slack in the second half with aa better attitude but it was too late, as they came closer Cedevita hit some nice shots...

Lucic with a good game, i really like this guy.
Raduljca more busy with his own thoughts...

You've got a point there, yet Maccabi managed to hold the paint, along being pretty well prepared on the perimeter as well. Pašalić is the only Helios's player that can do some damage in the paint, he got some close up defense and some defense on the passing lanes and got succesfuly cut off, from the rest of the trio, especialy Prepelič got 2 blocks on 3 pointers as his defenders obviously studied his game. Without contribution of Pašalič, Prepelič and Gay, well Helios becomes useless unless those three provide 40+ points. That on the other hand left some room for Jeftić and his 3 pointers, while others lack of quality and experience to make use of it.
Helios is more of a long-term project than anything else, while compared to Maccabi, there are few quality levels of difference, seemed more of an exhibition game than anything else :)

The weird thing is that Maccabi seemed more prepared even though it's the 2nd game out of 3 in 4 days (Efes in thursday, Helios today, Habikaa tomorrow) so obviously Maccabi had less time to prepare.

I think that Cedevita is the best team in the Adriatic, at lwast their roster.

I don't think so...Cedevita is relegated from Eurocup with 1-4 score,and Adriatic league is the most important competition for them at the moment,while Partizan had game of the season so far on thursday against Armani,and it's normal that they were not 100% in such unimportan game like this,because final4 participation is not a question at all + Partizan's gameplay includes Macvan as most important player after Pekovic left the squad,so if circumstances were equal for both teams there is no doubt that Partizan is more quality team then Cedevita in every aspect,atleast by my opinion,and we will see the resoult in some important game,like final4 game,if they will play against eachother...Im even think that Cedevita will have hard time beating Zagreb for the domestic title even if that sounds ridiculous...

With Maccabi's players quality, especialy when defense is concerned, they obviously don't need much to get enough prepared to cause problems to Helios :)
Bolčina is 17 first of all. He is member of junior NT's, but honestly haven't heard a lot about him. Elaj probably knows more.
I liked his game, but to my belief, only second coming of LeBron, Jordan, Gasol or Nowitzki and such can rightfully get recognised as a big time prospects at that age, I honestly doubt he is in that class ;)
As you've mentioned he showed some really nice confidence for a 17 y.o. kid, looks to have a quite nice and tall frame to put some muscles on... now let's wait and see, afterall it's been only one game from him.

Široki keeps winning against Slovenian clubs, 5-0 so far... and there goes the 3rd slovenian club spot next season, which either Laško or Helios could use a lot, with their youngsters... as well as be pretty competitive along.

Krka is a nice team, but I can't get rid of the feeling they should be fighting for F4 instead of swimming somewhere at the bottom. As for now, way too many changes have happened in the roster to get into the first half of the table...

I agree as far as Cedevita goes. I was most of all very suprised with their eurocup failure, no matter the tough group. Should've done way better than that.
While I've done some reading on Tedeschi, he never seemed as one from the Tuđman's favoured families, wasn't shown that way in Slovenia when he bought Kolinska neither...

Zagreb finished with 81% 2 pt fg and 50% for three..
Androić did a really good job tacticly and Zagreb deservedly won it..
they played simple, basicly it was either a 3pt fg attempt or pushing the ball to their bigs.. I think they tried only 2 or 3 2pt jump shots during the whole game..

Zagreb without Mulaomerović, Morović, Heytvelt and last 25 minutes of the game without Simon who sprained his ankle in the second quarter of the game..
and Zagreb still won the game 96-92, they were basicly leading throughout the entire game..
Zagreb finished with 81% 2 pt fg and 50% for three..
Androić did a really good job tacticly and Zagreb deservedly won it..
they played simple, basicly it was either a 3pt fg attempt or pushing the ball to their bigs.. I think they tried only 2 or 3 2pt jump shots during the whole game..

Tedeschi was at the stands watching the game, I wonder if he was happy with his team and his coach..

Cedevita have the best offensive skill in the League, but not defence in a shit.

Wrong. Cedevita usually is defensive team. This season only guys with ofensive talent is disco barr king Draper and old guy Smodis and Bazadaric. Rest is loaded with generic hard workers with lack of talent. On the other side aside from Maccabi Zagreb has most expensive and most talented offenseive team, but they play like shit. Luckly for me a sleept almost entire game, but watched end. Bouth played like somebody put gunn in theire face and forced them to play. No itensity at all, whille game was decided by team thet made less idiotic plays. Only positive thing about bouth teams togheter is Bilan and Simo's impruvments. Rest is far away from their investments

Repesa has instilled some discipline in Cibona, they play more agressive on defense nowdays and rotate better, there is still room for improvement ofcouse and not having anything resembling rim protector limits them severely.

Offensively, they are playing flex offense all the time with centers strickly involved in pick and roll game with Repesa`s liebling Kus being primary ballhandler. There is also one special "screen for screener" to isolate Rudez against slower bigmen at the top of the key. Repesa is obviously trying to be as simple as possible with his schemes at the beggining of his tenure. Jumpshots were falling for them yesterday, so they looked good, but most nights they will have problems against better opponents since they lack back to the basket threat outside of Zizic, who is old and injured his hand.

They are fairly deep with Kovacevic and Marcinkovic providing some nice defense off the bench, thier offense is dependant on streaky jumpshooting. Repesa will be able to exert some nice games out of this bunch, but i don`t expect them to seriously threat Cedevita in Croatian league. They are living and dying by the jumpshot.

The real reason is not snow.They are boycotting the game as they are in dispute with the ABA League management. They said the league schedule which is based on Maccabi's schedule does not suit them. That's the main reason they didn't fly to Tel Aviv. Finally some team had the guts to step up and say something. It's ridiculous that all the teams need to adapt to Maccabi's schedule but we all know money talks.

I know that you are very reallible user, but it sounds strange, because Budo has a great chance to quallify to the F4, and a step like that will destroy their chance.

Well deserved, I hope they'll decide for eurocup, some of their players could definately use the playing time and exposure there. Široki must be one of the biggest surprises in the last 10 years, I believed they are cemented at place no.12 or no.11, no.10 at best, yet their youngsters rose to the extent they'll end up 5th :) well done.


Today Maccabi told ABA that they won't participate in the 2012/2013 Adriatic League.
They're about to do that reportedly in case the number of games in euroleague increases, which obviously will happen.
Now adriatic league will definitely need a sponsor first of all, while hopefully, eventhough having as strong team as Maccabi in adriatic league is great, I hope ABA management will finaly stop inviting foreign clubs. Ex-Yugo teams are enough and after Macedonians, there shouldn't be any new countries added whatsoever.

Personaly i don't mind one team like Maccabi in ABA league since it is great team with great traditin, but with all respect to teams like CZE this league shold serve as league wich imprves basketball in regin

Croatia nad Serbia 4 teams
Slovenia nad BiH 2 teams

Any way, I won't cancel at all the chance, that Maccabi will stay, deu to some rules against MTA in the IL League, which push MTA out.

Good job from Siroki Brijeg in this year's Adriatic League. Barely missed out on the Final Four and have increased Bosnia's coefficient for next year. Now, it looks like we will get three teams next year (I predict they will be Bosna ASA<, Igokea, and Siroki Brijeg). As for thee Maccabi situation, I wish they would stay in our league, I like having them as an addition. But if they leave, we probably shouldn't call upon a team outside of our region again, as they will probably leave after a single year like some of the others...

According to the ULEB coefficients, at the moment ever sicne the regular season has ended, here are the slate of teams playing from each country next season -

Bosnia: 3 teams
Croatia: 3 teams
Serbia: 2 teams
Slovenia: 2 teams

I think due to the fact Siroki played so well this season and they were our only club in the ABA League, we will get three teams next year. And Serbia will lose one team next season because of 2 out of 3 of their clubs playing poorly this year.... Slovenia will lose two teams because they had one team relegated, one fourth-to-last, and another second-to-last. Finally, Croatia gets the same amount of teams. I am puzzled as to how we are getting three teams next year, but I am definitely not questioning it. :D :) I also find it a bit weird that Serbia only gets two teams. Slovenian teams were terrible with the exception of Union Olimpija (who didn't even play that from what I expected; they finished sixth). Meh, it is what it is, right?

if i'm right, this season aba board changed rules for next season

croatia and serbia have 2 teams, slovenia and bih 1. one free invitation goes to countries with euroleague clubs (croatia, slovenia, serbia) and 2 invitations go to countries with better sum betwen croatia and serbia, and betwen slovenia and bih

translated it says bih can't have more then 2 teams in league and less then one, slovenia can't have more then 3, less then 2, serbia and croatia 4/3. also it means that this season only thing that was important for bih to finish above slovenia to get 1 spot, wich btw. costs 150k euros

so by that it should look like

croatia 2 + one free euroleague invitation + 1 invitation that costs 150K
serbia 2 + free euroleague invitation
slovenia 2 + free euroleague invitation
bih 1 + 1 invitation that costs 150k
buducnost invitation
mtz invitation
maccabi invitation

since maccabi wont play next season i guess 1 invitation will go to serbia as they finished better then slovenia, whille bosnia can't have more then 2 clubs

They sure don't wannt to be punch bag like Zagreb and Cibona last 2 years. They have much higher abitions and will invest even more money. If you ask me they play below level of invested money for this region.
