    Your team don't having a PG or a player/s who make good decisions is excellently one of your problems that make you IMO not good as the reams I mentioned before. Of course I thing Calathes will be grate maybe next time (and I will show everybody that I got a picture with him ), but he is still young and unexperienced and was very confidential in this tournament.
    Slovenia whoever had one PG but he was extremely tired because of the system and injuries. In certain point they tried to use Lakovic less as playmaker and only to bring the ball to the half to reduce the burden from him. E.Lorbek who himself played I think not less then Spanulis (and he is a center) was taking a lot on himself not only in scoring but also in creating.

    But I liked your fans very much. In Poznan in one of the games of Greeca and at the first game at Bydogoshcz I intentionally came to seat inside them. They are organised, has some leaders who control everything. I have some pictures of them that I can send to those who want and will send me their mail in PM
    I struggle to understand your point. I really do. You shift from one point to the other and back again. Slovenia and Serbia played OT but then again didnt Greecer beat Turkey in OT at the quartefinals?
    Anyway you have obviously for some reason have made up your mind that this is how it is. OK

    I don't switch, I just say it is all together.
    Greece didn't have ideal conditions too and it wasn't fair that Spain rested more then you, but for Slovenia it was many things all together.
    And as I explained, not getting a rest was more crucial for them.

    Serbia also got a lot of luck (getting Russia after finishing 3rd in the group is better then getting a rest).

    Well we deserved to get easier opponent in elimination round we played two toughest groups .Even though I don't think France would stand any chance against us.Even Boris Diaw confirmed that when some of the journalist ask him are they regretting because they win against Greece.He answered we would probably loose to Serbia anyway

    Its not like Slovenia got very difficult opponent in the quarter-finals(after all Russia that we played against managed to beat that same Croatians who were my first pick for our quarter-finals opponent along with France). They put in a lot more efforts than expected to beat them? Their problem. In the semi-finals they lost against us,their direct opponent for the finals, in a great match,in which both sides gave their best.
    That would be it. And that talks...who had more luck/who had less luck or as we say " sta bi bilo kad bi bilo" are far-fetched.

    That was whole different match. In the group phase both teams had certain imperative of the win(especially Russia) and that 2nd match...no matter which team had lost, it probably would have gotten wild card for the WC(so I think that their group game was lot more important).
    But I do agree that this is pointless thread.Why? Because there was only one dominant team in this Eurobasket-Spain. Then there were 3-4 teams of pretty much the same quality which were separated only by nuances. I do not think that nuances are visible to the eye of average basketball fan. That nuances are reflected in final standing.Trying to rank them in any other way is pointless.

    I don't speak Macedonian but I do know that their official name is Република Македонија, or the romanized form Republika Makedonija, which according to Google translator means Republic of Macedonia
