And here we go again. The league will have again 14 teams. But it looks like that it will be the last season with 14 teams. From the season 09/10 the league should have 12 teams. And perhaps we will see also a NLB 2 from the season 09/10 on. And if you ask me a NLB 2 is needed. The clubs that don´t play in the NLB league suck more and more from year to year.

Few teams secured the qualification for the next season yet.

Serbia
Partizan Belgrade
FMP Belgrade
Zvezda Belgrade
Hemofarm Vrsac
Vojvodina Novi Sad

Montenegro
Buducnost Podgorica

Slovenia
Olimpija Ljubljana
Helios Domzale
Krka or Lasko


Croatia
KK Zadar

And the other times will be decided mostlikely today. With a win from Cibona over Zagreb, Split will be 2nd and Zagreb 3rd. But only when Zagreb lose with 8 points against Cibona. If they lose by 9 points, they go to place 4 and Cibona on 3. If Zagreb win Cibona will stay at place 4 and must hope to win the champinship or wait for a WC:D :D :D from the NLB to play next year again in NLB. With a win over Cibona Zagreb would be 2nd and Split 3rd.

BIH

They have only one place and the champion will play in the NLB next year. Bosna was on a good way to secure the 1st place before the playoffs, but they lost at home against Borac Banja Luka and so everything is open again. It looks like we will see a hard fight between Bosna, Siroki and Igokea. Bosna plays against Igokea tomorrow in Aleksandrovac. Igokea lost the 1st game in Sarajevo with 82-80 and with a win tomorrow from more then 2 points they will take the 1st place.

Krka is in next years Adriatic League! :cool:

Welcome back! :cool:
Unless Laško wins the title of course... which won't happen anyway :cool:

It'll be interesting to see Krka's budget for the next season.
Marcelić is getting old, while players like Balažič, Sorrentine, Rakočević are good but not really anything extra for adriatic league level. It all depends on team's pharmaceutical "parent's" willingness to increase the "pocket money".
If we assume Martič would be gone from Helios next season, Helios can't be as bad next season either, so I guess we'll be keeping 3 teams for a bit longer... Široki really missed a hard-to-miss chance this year.


I don't support the 2nd adriatic league since costs of running this NLB league go up to 2.2 millions € (budget=2.5 M €) and I can't see anyone covering up the simmilar ammount for the second one. Even if the costs for the 2nd NLB would go down to 1 million only due to separate 2 divisions being played, I prefer that extra money to be given to top4 or top8 adriatic league clubs instead. For most of those teams extra 100.000 € would mean quite a lot when planning for the next season.

Cibona beat Zagreb today with 104:87. One part of me dislikes Cibona's policy in the last 4-5 years and wouldn't mind if they get a warning that might throw down their manager board once and for all. But on the other hand they'd get either that wild-card or might win the championship even as 4th seed...
I kind of prefer it this way since I'd like to see Bosna in NLB again. Not that much for their level in the last years, but because I respect their fans for supporting their team in such numbers.

Brewer left Zadar. He will play for ASK Riga next year and will get 400.000$ per season.

So Partizan, Red Star, Zadar has lost the PG´s. And Olimpija with Dragic may follow.

And it seems like Juby Johnson will stay in Zadar. Rumours are that some clubs from the ACB are interested in him. Especially Valencia and Unicaja who would pay him 400.000€ per season. But Juby likes Zadar very much and he is playing since 3-4 years now in Zadar and so he maybe will stay for less money. I don´t think that Zadar is able to pay him 400.000€ per season.

After Bosna Sarajevo won the title in the NBA we have still one place free. Zagreb, Siroki or Igokea will get this place. I think Zagreb is the favourit for it. It will be decided on the 1th July who will get the wildcard.

Zagreb today signed Dzenan Rahimic (C/33year old) who played for Bosna Sarajevo this season. They are als near to sign Luka Drezga (SG/87) from KK Sibenik. They are also interested in Luka Petkovic (PG/88) from KK Sibenik.

Denis Vrsaljko (C), Ruzic (PF), Garma (SF) and Kovacevic (SG) may leave or be loaned out.

But it will be interesting to see if Vladovic, Simon and Tomic will stay. If they stay they could have a strong team next year.

Sinisa Stemberger signed with Split.

Alen Abaz is the new headcoach from Bosna Sarajevo. He signed for 3 years.

Partizan signed Aleksander Rasic for 3 years and Vukasin Aleksic for 4 years.

Steven Markovic, Igor Milosevic and Marko Lekic left Red Star Belgrade. Aleksandrov will follow in the next few days.

Zadar signed Dejan Ivanov, Malik Dixon, Damir Rancic and Tomislav Ruzic for the next season. Pankracije Parac, Jure Lalic and Andrej Stimac left the klub. And Gecevski may follow.

Warren left Cibona. Rozic will stay in Cibona. He signed a new contract and will earn 180.000-200.000€ per season.

Perhaps we should make a list of the rosters as last year.

Člani skupčine so tudi zglasovali, da se liga NLB v prihodnji sezoni po dveh uspešnih letih ne bo več izvedal tekmovanja All Stars, prišlo pa je tudi do spremembe tekmovalnega sistema. V sezoni 2008/09 se tako ne bodo več igrale četrtfinalne tekme. Zakaj? »Ker je evroliga spremenila svoj tekmovalni sistem in s tem zasedla velik del prostih terminov, smo si bili člani skupščine soglasni, da ni več prostih terminov za odigravanje četrtfinala v ligi NLB. V sezoni 2008/09 bo tako na sporedu spet le finalni turnir, podobno kot v prvih treh letih regionalnega tekmovanja,« je pojansil novi predsednik skupščine Sidra ABA d. o. o. Danilo Mitrović.

Na dnevnem redu je bila tudi razprava o zmanjšanju klubov s sedanjega števila 14 na 12 v szeoni 2009/2010, vendar so se odločili, da nadaljno razpravo prestavijo na september. »Sprejeli smo sklep, da je treba do septembra pripraviti finančni razrez, ki bo pokazal, kakšne so prednosti in kakšne slabosti morebitnega zmanjšanja,« je pojansil Mitrović in dodal, da se je na skupščini še vedno pokazala večinska naklonjenost temu, da liga NLB ostane pri 14 sodelujočih klubih.

Zagreb got the WC and will be the 14th and last team that will play in NLB next season.

But also some changes were made.

The All-Star game will not be played anymore.

The 1/4 finale will not be played anymore. Now we will have the system as in the 1st 3 years. That means that the 1st 4 teams will be automaticaly in the F4.

And it is still not sure if we will have a league of 14 or 12 teams from the season 2009/2010. They will decide this in September. Now the majority is for a league with 14 teams. I hope it will be reduced to 12.

I'd bet mostly on home teams, except on Budućnost - Olimpija, hard to say, Olimpija is the favourite, but latest news say that Ilievski, Hukić and Klobučar might not play due to injuries (Klobučar out for a month). Missing especially Ilievski would be a big handicap for Olimpija. We'll have to see how Wallace will respond.

Except Zagreb and Partizan, there are no firm favorites in opening round

Zadar had all sorts of problems heading into the season. Gecevski and Ivanov missed big chunk of traning camp due to playing for Macedonia and Bulgaria, and coach Petrovic had a falling out with Romel Beck, who is now out of the team. Split on the other hand has 7 new players in the rotation, but they played well in preparation games and may very well be able to snatch surprise win.

Bosna didn`t look particularly well in two of the games i was able to see. They have good perimeter line, but their inside game is pretty weak. They are expected to sign additional player or two, but as of now they are going into the season with inexperienced youngsters Suljagic and Zimic at C position. Helios seems to have decent team, no paper atleast.

Buducnost`s starting five backourt of Mijatovic (Otasevic) - Gordic - Micov is one of the strongest in the competition. While Dasic will play at PF for starters to cover up the absence of Dragicevic. Considering Olimpija`s problems with injurys, i`ll give them slight edge.

You can never understimate FMP, but this edition seems to lack atleast some experienced players. Thier guards are not up to the level of thier frontline and they might face big problems in running thier halfcourt sets considering that most of their perimeter players show limited ability to break down defense. I˙ll bet on Zvezda in that one, they have very good roster now it`s up to Pesic to turn them into a formidable team.

Hemofarm also didn`t look particularly good in preparation period, but Cibona was not impressing also. Markota is not with the team and Marshall arived just a few days ago so he might not play much. Hemofarm has great depth under the basket with Macvan, Marjanovic, Vukosavljevic, Savovic and Bozovic all capable of producing. Thier PG position is also very good with underrated Pavkovic and talented Markovic, but while Joksimovic and Krstovic are very good players they lack some more scoring power from thier wings.

Terrible game by Olimpija, they weren't able to adapt to aggressive Budućnost defence and also surprisingly they also lost rebounding... Wallace, dear god, youngster Sarajlija should get his minutes...

Great game from montenegrian duo Ivanovic and Sehovic for Bosna.
FMP play very well in first half (Samardziski, Labovic and youngs Miltunovic 1990 and Zivanovic 1989), but in the third quarter Kikanovic, Keselj and Owens give victory to Crvena Zvezda. I consider it more as a FMP loss than a Red Star win.
Zadar in a new stadium beat Split. I didn't see the game so I won't comment.
Vojvodina beat Zadar due to a great game from SG Sutalo (7/8 from 3pts line)
Serbians Simonovic (an atlethic SF with good 3pts shoot, didn't play a lot last year in Hemofarm) and Bojovic, with the help of the montenegrian phenom Dasic were the main players for Buducnost.
Hemofarm beat Cibona. Macvan was once again himself (amazing), the montenegrian PF Bozovic too, good games from Krstovic and Pavkovic. For Cibona, US PG Calloway showed great abilities.
Partizan also win.

Amazing story: Juby Johnson of Zadar (an American who is playing there for 5 years already despite having better financial offers all over the Europe) helped Tornado (fans of Zadar) with money issues for the trip to away game in Zagreb vs. Cibona. Fans had problems with raising the money for the trip... Juby Johnson heard that and decided to pay all travel expenses - 6000kn (around 1100€).

Interview with Juby Johnson before todays game vs. Cibona (made by zadarsport.com):

Hello Juby, how are the preparations for the game against Cibona going?
"Everything is in order, we are all prepared for the game and we are ready to do everything for the win. I'm sure we will try our hardest. We are all excited, and I hope we win."

There were some rumors in city of Zadar that you donated 6000kn to Tornado so they would be able to support the team in away game in Zagreb?
"I don't know who said this to you, but yes I helped Tornado with money issues. Why did I do that? They are part of my family. Tornado became my family during the years here. They are always supporting us, so why shouldn't I support them back? This is just my way of saying thanks and keep supporting us in the future."

"Money is something which doesn't last. They weren't sure if they'd get enough finances on time to travel to Zagreb and at that time I asked the guys if they are coming to Zagreb... When I heard that money is still being raised for this trip and that its not sure if Tornado is coming to Zagreb, I decided to donate the money by myself. We, players want them and we need them in Zagreb for this game."

SER - Krka surprise Hemofarm; Partizan win in OT at Zagreb


VRSAC (Adriatic League) - Krka Novo mesto sprung an upset at Hemofarm and Partizan Belgrade needed overtime to prevail at KK Zagreb in the Adriatic League this weekend.

Davor Marcelic was five of seven from long range and scored 21 points in Krka's 75-73 triumph at Hemofarm.

Simon Petrov's two free throws late in the contest were the game's final points, though Miljan Pavkovic did have a chance to draw Hemofarm level but missed a lay-up at the end.

Krka, who won promotion to the Adriatic League this season, won for the first time in the competition on the road in five years.

Vladen Vukosavljevic had 21 in defeat for Hemofarm.

Partizan Belgrade overcame 23 points and 14 rebounds from rising Croatia star Ante Tomic to post a 92-91 triumph in OT at KK Zagreb.

Serbia international Uros Tripkovic made four of five shots from behind the arc on his way to 20 points for Partizan, who remained undefeated.

Zagreb fell behind in the extra period when Stephane Lasme made one of two at the stripe for a 92-91 lead.

The hosts called timeout but Tomic missed a potential game-winning three-ball at the end.

Red Star Belgrade remained undefeated like Partizan after an 83-71 triumph over visiting Split.

In other games, Zadar won over Helios 73-67, Buducnost defeated Bosna 85-68 and FMP beat Cibona 85-76.

Cibona outclassed Zvezda today. Zvezda has young and talented team, but i doubt they can match defensive level of Partizan and Cibona, who is slowly getting into the shape. I think Partizan and Cibona are main favorites, which Zvezda, Zadar and Olimpija next in line.

ADRIATIC LEAGUE – Split clinch unlikely victory after Vojvodina crumble


BELGRADE (Adriatic League) - Vojvodina suffered an amazing collapse in the final minute of their Adriatic League game at home to Split over the weekend and lost 72-70.

The visitors' Antonio Grant made a buzzer-beating lay-up to win it as Split improved to 4-3 while dropping Vojvodina to 1-6.

Marko Pekovic had buried a three-pointer with 53 seconds remaining to give the home side a 70-64 lead, only for Split duo Eddie Shannon and Mario Delas to trim the deficit to 70-68 with back-to-back lay-ups, the second after a turnover.

Vojvodina's Dejan Borovnjak had a chance to push the advantage back to four but he missed two free throws and then Shannon tied the contest at 70-70 at the stripe with 10 seconds left after being fouled by Marko Popovic.

Vojvodina called a timeout and when play resumed, Grant stole the ball from Pekovic and went in for the game-winning lay-up to leave the home team, and crowd, stunned.

The coach of Vojvodina, Zoran Sretenovic, agonized over the turnovers and missed free throws.

"I do not know how to explain what is happening to us," he said.

League leaders and defending champions Partizan Belgrade are not cruising in the Adriatic League but so far, no side has been able to beat them.

Dusko Vujosevic's men won their seventh consecutive game at the weekend but were again pushed to the limit, this time in a 69-66 defeat at FMP.

Partizan trailed by five points heading into the last quarter at FMP but outscored their opponents 20-12 in the final frame.

Uro Tripkovic led Partizan with 18 points.

ADRIATIC League – Red Star win Belgrade derby against Partizan


BELGRADE (Adriatic League) - Serbia international Milenko Tepic Partizan missed a lay-up at the end of the game as Red Star won the Belgrade derby 81-80 in the Adriatic League on Sunday.

Partizan had survived a few close calls in the competition this season and they almost scraped an unlikely win against Svetislav Pesic's team after their Cedomir Vitkovac drilled a three-pointer and then Tadija Dragicevic of Red Star missed two free throws.

But Tepic was off target with his potential game-winner right at the death as defending champions Partizan suffered their first defeat.

Elmedin Kikanovic had 22 points and Marko Marinovic 19 for Red Star.

Both sides are now 7-1.

“Our main goal is placement in the NLB Final Four and now we are in a good situation,” said Pesic, who was thrown out of the game.

Zadar and Hemofarm are both 6-2 after winning games at home.

Zadar thrashed Zagreb 110-75 and Hemofarm hammered Buducnost 96-77.

In other games, Krka lost in front of their own fans to Split 86-79, Cibona won 99-75 over Vojvodina, Bosna defeated Olimpija 94-85 and Helios cruised past FMP 96-82.

ADRIATIC LEAGUE – Partizan to face Cibona in final

BELGRADE (Adriatic League) - Red Star had the dream start but Partizan hit back to win their latest showdown in the Adriatic League Final Four on Thursday to book a place in the title game.

Dusko Vujosevic’s Serbian juggernauts will face Cibona for the championship after the Croatian outfit’s 67-55 Semi-Final victory over Hemofarm.

Svetislav Pesic, who coached the former Yugoslavia to the gold medal at the 2002 FIBA World Championship in Indianapolis, watched as his Red Star team scored the game’s first 11 points.

Partizan, however, replied with a 13-0 run to get right back into the game.

A lay-up early in the second quarter by impressive Czech Republic international youngster Jan Vesely and four straight points by Serbia national team player Milenko Tepic put Partizan in front for good, although the game wasn’t decided until the fourth quarter.

A Leroy Andre Owens three-ball for Red Star cut Partizan’s lead to 48-45 but Stephane Lasme dunked to restore the five-point cushion.

Partizan kept their noses in front the rest of the way.

Tepic poured in 14 points to lead Partizan.

In the other Semi-Final, Cibona stormed into a 24-11 lead over Hemofarm and ultimately prevailed by 12.

Alan Anderson had 24 points and Earl Calloway 18 for Cibona.

Should be an easy win for Partizan. They simply don't have a matching opponent in the region.

Congrats to Partizan fans :)

NLB was great this season, hopefully it will be even better next year. After Spanish league its certainly most competative one in Europe. If we had 1 more top club it would certainly be behind Spanish one in quality as well.

Congrats to Partizan. They deserved it, Cibona was not even close. You simply can not win a game when only 5 players score, even if you have such great individual scorer as Anderson. Partizan is just more complete team.

Great game, only one thing bothered me... why the fuck was necessary to throw burning flares on the court (30s untill end of the game!!!), one almost hit coach Perasović in the head. Fucking morons, guy who did that should be beaten like hell, fucking idiot.

Fucking morons, guy who did that should be beaten like hell, fucking idiot. There will always be some moron who will ruin it all. Everything was perfect until then... hell even no nationalistic crap that we usually see in games between Cro and Ser clubs.

Tho to be honest, we had clubs with class playing here, not Red Star and Zadar :D:p

Vujošević went to the speaker and told the fans to stop throwing flares...interesting thing is that Partizan "fans" made two big provocations during this F4..
first that moron on the semifinal game and then this..
and the organizer didn't do anything to stop it..
they didn't even try..

congrats to partizan. well deserved

anderson is legend. good old finacial crisies:D

grobari started provokating croatian fans in all games they play. only positive thing that socer fans don't atend bball game si croatia. even in game when they don't play against croatian clubs (csk, panathinaikos) they are hanging up side down BBB and Torcida flags or even burnig them. after they boast like "we stole them that flag in croatia). when some bad thing hapen they will say we start provokating them. And than they are saying we can't live with out them?

i guess they are trying to lose croatian mark from their name (fans of crvena zvezda/red star calling them croatian club)...lol. grobari that is ass kissing.

respect to all true partizan fans!

In the past, Partizan was considered by Red Star fan as a croatian club, now we consider it as a montenegrin club. :D

Partizan Celebrate Third Straight NLB Crown

Some of Serbia's international stars that are expected to play at this summer's EuroBasket were out in full force over the weekend and the contingent with Partizan Belgrade was able to celebrate a third straight Adriatic League title.

Partizan, after coming back from an early deficit to beat Red Star Belgrade in the Semi-Finals, turned on the style and thrashed Cibona Zagreb 63-49 in the championship game.

Serbia international Novica Velickovic scored 17 points to lead Partizan, who also have national team stars Uros Tripkovic and Milenko Tepic.

Dusko Vujosevic, the Partizan coach who is also the boss of Montenegro's national team, said: "I am very happy that we have, for the third time in succession, won the NLB trophy.

"We absolutely deserve it, not only with two victories in the Final Four, but the games during the entire season.

"We played each game at a high level. The huge effort put forth gives meaning to this trophy.

"Cibona is a very good team that reached the Top 16 of the Euroleague. It was a dangerous opponent."

Vujosevic stressed the importance of the Adriatic League, calling it "the league that gives the young players the opportunity to develop."

In Spain, meanwhile, another Serbian who looks to be solidifying his place in the squad is Luka Bogdanovic.

The DKV Joventut ace had 19 points to fire DKV past Pamesa Valencia, 86-77.
