    Cuz we were best in basketball, serbia and hrvatska in time of yugo, i think we should share all medals from eu champ and world champ , that would be fair, and finally to get rid of name yugo , cuz winners will be or srbija or hrvatska.

    I think Slovenia has the best offensive players in Europe (with injured players and full squad) Lakovic,Lorbek,Nachbar,Smodis,Becirovic..... If you put any of them into a Euroleague team,they will be one of the best offensive option for this teams.You have very good offensive players but you haven't got really "team" players.That is the problem.While saying "team" player I meant who makes everything(tough defense,steal,block,passing,fighting...) in match without seeming.If you had some,you could get a medal.

    Why is that sad. Is being a Serb a bad thing. I˙m not sur about Rao, but Saa and Goran have Slovenian mothers and were born and lived in Slovenia, untill their careers led them elsewhere.

    Nesterovics both parents are Serbian they just lived in Slovenia in the SFRY... Dragic and Vujacics fathers are Serbian. Dragic played his best game in the Eurobasket against Serbia

    How can Dragić be ethnic Serb if his mother is Slovenian and he was born in Slovenia?

    Why it would be sad if those two mentioned are ethnic Serb?

    Both were born in Slovenia. So called second generation of immigrants from former countries of ex-Yu.

    Nesterović's parents are Serbs from BiH. Vujačić's father is Montenegrin. Mother is of Serbian descent I think.

    Most of their parents came to Slovenia because their own federal countries in ex-Yu couldn't support them or didn't find the job there. I guess they perfered Slovenia over Serbia/BiH/Montenegro even then. Clearly, considering they decided to stay when we declared independence and they took the Slovenian citizenship.

    I don't know how this is even necessary to discuss. Everytime some Serb states such bullshit. Nationalistic bullshit. They are all Slovenians and play(ed) for Slovenian NT not for Serbian.

    Yes, lets make up the facts, OK. That's a common thing in ex-Yu. He played his best game against Spain.

    There should be a fairly simple explanation for the thread objective more tangible than the other options:
    With Lakovic averaging 35+mpg as well as Lorbek, the additions of B.Udrih, Dragic (at the later stages), and Smodis we would have seen Slovenia with a medal around it's neck in this yrs EB with certainty i dare predict.
