    I didn't mean Estonians in particular, I just wanted to say that two Kalev teams will create some confusion if you don't add the TTÜ, Cramo or BC to it. At least to me

    Hey everyone, who are interested in Estonian league, Estonian NT, Estonian teams and our players. I have a blog about all of that. It is in Estonian, but in the upper right hand corner i have an Google Translator application to translate the text in a language you want it. It's not the perfect solution, but it's the best i have time for right now. I'm thinking of making this a bilingual blog (Estonian & English), but that will happen probably, when the KML regular season starts. Please give me feedback on it. My last post is actually a preview for the new season, where i talk about all the teams, who they aquired, who the lost, their budgets, hopes for the season and all that.

    If you want to know anything about Estonian basketball, ask me.

    The rosters of Estonian BBL Elite teams so far:

    BC Kalev/Cramo

    PG: Tanel Sokk, Reimo Tamm, Marko Riis
    SG: Gert Dorbek, Kristo Orula
    SF: Gregor Arbet, Kaido Saks
    PF: Rait Keerles, Jason Jones (USA-FRA), Kristjan Kitsing
    C: Robert Krabbendam (NED), Joosep Toome

    Headcoach: Aivar Kuusmaa, assistants: Alar Varrak, Martin Müürsepp

    The first choice for the center position was actually Artsiom Parakhouski, who in the end signed for VEF. There were some talks about recruiting Josh Lomers, but the club and the player couldn't find an agreement and now that Kalev hired Toome, the arrival seems highly unlikely. I'm also quite excited about the prospect of Kitsing, who has been training with Kalev for some time now (although I'm not sure if Rock and Kalev have agreed the buyout yet), he could turn out quite handy for Kalev.

    Tartu Rock

    PG: Nate Rohnert (USA), Sten Sokk
    SG: Giorgi Tsintsadze (GEO), Silver Leppik, Kristjan Evart
    SF: Timo Eichfuss, Marek Doronin, Tanel Kurbas
    PF: Janar Talts, Asko Paade, Rain Raadik
    C: Callistus Eziukwu (USA), Vallo Allingu

    Headcoach: Indrek Visnapuu, assistants: Gert Kullamäe, Toomas Kandimaa

    Rock announced the signings of Tsintsadze and Talts today. Janar Talts has got a clause in his contract that allows him to leave abroad if a good offer comes around and I really hope it does. Rohnert and Eziukwu are still on try-out period.

    TTÜ/Kalev

    PG: Valmo Kriisa, Raido Roos
    SG: Casey Archibald (CAN), Margus Klementsov, Sixten Tomingas
    SF: Illimar Pilk, Kiur Akenpärg, Erik Keedus, Mooses Kaja
    PF: Bambale Osby (USA), Andre Pärn
    C: Kristjan Makke, Gabriel Hughes (USA)

    Headcoach: Üllar Kerde, assistant: Margus Metstak

    Well, their official website has it so and after all he played for them in Rakvere Cup. I wouldn't be very surprised if he started the season with the second team though.

    None of them is playing in KML anymore, so I believe they are retired, yes. At least they aren't playing on professional level.

    Tartu Ulikool clinch Estonian Cup title

    Tartu Ulikool - Kalev/Cramo 87:81

    Tartu Ulikool celebrated the Estonian Cup title. They overcame their archrivals Kalev/Cramo in the Final. Vallo Allingu (206-C-78) stepped up with 23 points and 8 rebounds to pace the winners.
    It was a tough battle from starting minutes. The teams were knotted at 21 after ten minutes of action. Tartu Ulikool put their noses in front in the second frame. They earned a narrow 45:41 halftime advantage. Tartu boosted the gap in the third term. They stretched the margin to as many as 7 points 70:63. Kalev/Cramo tried to stay within striking distance throughout the final period but Tartu remained calm and executed the victory at the end. Tanel Kurbas (197-F-88) posted 15 points, while Bill Amis (205-F-87, college: Hawaii) finished with 14 points in the winning effort. Tanel Sokk (184-G-85) answered with 15 points for Kalev/Cramo. Gert Dorbek (194-G-85) had 14 points in the loss.

    Tartu Ulikool: Vallo Allingu 23, Tanel Kurbas 15, Bill Amis 14
    Kalev/Cramo: Tanel Sokk 15, Gert Dorbek 14

    Kalev/Cramo Clinch Title

    BC Kalev/Cramo Tallinn have captured their third Estonian league title in the last four years after winning all four of their games in the play-off championship against Tartu Ulikool.

    Having finished second during the regular season with a 23-5 record behind first-place Tartu (25-3), Kalev/Cramo marched through the post-season unbeaten.

    Aivar Kuusimaa's team claimed a 3-0 sweep of Tarvas in the semi-finals and then rolled to 75-63 and 84-66 triumphs in the first two games of the title series at Tartu.

    In front of the home fans, Kalev/Cramo trailed by three at half-time of Game 3 but fought back in the second half and won 87-76 in overtime to take a firm grip on the series.

    They captured the crown with a 72-65 Game 4 victory, and the players brought out the champagne on the court in the post-game party.

    The coach of Tartu, Gert Kullamae, shrugged his shoulders after watching the trophy go to Kalev/Cramo.

    "The first two meetings in the final series got out of hand, and with it everything else," he said.

    Bamba Fall was sensational at the start and end of the series for the winners.

    He poured in 22 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in the opener and finished with 18 points and 19 rebounds in Game 4.

    Kalev looks pretty much like this at the moment:

    Tanel Sokk PG 188cm
    Martin Dorbek PG 194cm
    Armands Škele SG/SF 192cm
    Gert Dorbek SG/SF 193cm
    Gregor Arbet SG/SF 195cm (?)
    Rait Keerles SF/PF 201cm
    Toomas Raadik SF/PF 202cm
    Kristjan Kitsing PF/C 205cm
    Gary Wilkinson PF/C 204cm
    Bamba Fall C 217cm

    So far they've signed American Gary Wilkinson, who had a great season in Australian NBL, and also managed to keep Bamba Fall (he had interest from Samara last season for example) and Armands Škele. Although Škele recently had severe health problems during Latvian NT camp and was hospitalized, so it's hard to predict how things will go for him. As for domestic players, they signed Rait Keerles who came back from Germany and also added Martin Dorbek and Toomas Raadik, who are both pretty young and don't have much experience at international level. Don't know much about Arbet - I can only guess he'll wait until the national team matches are over and see what offers he would get from abroad.

    They are still looking to add a point guard and a back-up center, both of whom would be foreigners.

    Some news from local teams:

    Tartu signed with Justin Ingram. What is more, the team will return to its former name - ''Rock''.

    Tarvas added Raitis Grafs.

    BC Kalev signed with PG Derek Glasser. They almost had Ashton Gibbs for that position, but he finally decided to opt for Panionios. They are still looking for a center as one of their candidates joined with unnamed Euroleague club this morning..
