    Cool Eurobasket 2009: suspicious losses

    I've got a strange feeling that Spain NTs losses in the beginning of tournament are also a part of a conspiracy to bring some interest to the event.

    Before the EB2009, everybody ( other NT's coaches and players, media, etc ) claimed that Spain is a big favorite and will take a gold without any prob. Spain started with a bunch of losses and suddenly the completion was open in a sense that virtually every team can win it.

    Needless to say that this Spanish fiesta of losses come to the end when their qualification was at stake

    Imagine how this Eurobasket would look if Spain finished both qualifying rounds undefeated.

    Should I also mention the conspiracy behind Greece-Russia, Frence-Greece in Greek heroic plight to avoid Spain ?

    Well, share your thought on this subject
    Feel free to add your games to this list

    Greece lost because De colo scored a basket over 3 of our players defending him. Blame De Colo not Greeks for the loss.

    As for the rest of the conspiracy theories you posted here are simply not worth commenting

    No, I don't believe in any of the conspiracy theories.

    All losses we had were suspicious

    No team in the world will accept that. How can you be sure Spain will start winning, after 2 losses on purpose? If Spain plays with Angola, you can say that, but in Eurobasket, no there's no conspiracy.

    Definately
    France in 1/4 final, Greece in semi final and Serbia in final lost the games to Spain, with massive difference to hide their true strength for 2010 , not because Spain was much better

    I mean, come onnnnn. If GB team had better SG they could have beaten Spain in the last qualification game and Spain would be out. Why on earth would a serious medal contender risk it??? Gasol was mediocre in the beggining and so was Spain. When he uped his game, so did Spain. Simple.

    As for Greece vs France both teams played very loosely to preserve their energy for the 1/4 final. At the very end both teams tried to win... Greece with a 3 and then De Colo managed a very difficult shot under a lot of pressure from Zisis. And just before that shot Bourousis nearly stole the ball.

    oh yeah!!!
    After all J.F.Kennedy WAS Greek Loby!
    can't blame ozi for this.

    I also have in good authority that Queen Elizabeth,Tom Cruise and Pau Gasol are in reality alien shape-shifting lizard people who together with the Church of Fried Chicken and Richey666 will run over the world.
    My fridge told me this via my alien jaw implant.It is even more reliable than reading it in the internet!!

    Also, cut down with sweets and coffee... Maybe then information won't be passed to you by your fridge via your alien jaw implant, but by your vacuum-cleaner via talking monkey, like the rest of us get our information.

    good luck with that,me being a frappeaddict.

    what!?? I'm socking now.A vacuum cleaner??

    I don't have a vacuum-cleaner :_-( And my broom hasn't been very talkative later..(has to do with some stupid misunderstanding between me,my broom,and a naughtly begonia.I took the begonia's side. ).
    Maybe that's why I'm not up to date with my inside info!!
    I heard ozi gets his analytical comments by efes beer,maybe I must try this better.

    No doubt that Macedonia tanked their games against France and Greece. France tried to tank their game against Greece but failed. Greece tanked their games against Russia and France.

    Turkey clearly tanked their last two games after losing in the quarters to Greece. Anyone that paid attention could easily point out all of those games.

    Spain lost against Angola in Barcelona Olympics in 1992 by 20 (63-83) and was eliminated in the first round (lost against Andola and USA). In Spain is named the "Angolazo" and is remembered as the most embarrasing lost of the Spanish NT in all its history.

    Au contraire, Gasol was at his best precisely at this game against GB with 27 pts and 11 rebounds. All other qualification games that weren't do-or-die he was indeed mediocre . Maybe we're up to something here ?

    As for Greece vs France both teams played very loosely to preserve their energy for the 1/4 final. At the very end both teams tried to win...
