    Talking about Spahija and Croatian NT... well he DID his best and that best was in reality good enough for medals, but there are things you can't fight against.

    we all know what we missed in 2005.

    some big names and markets were already out of race for WC...Italy, Turky, Serbia...with exception of Serbia who's not big market, but you can left champion without WC...with only 3 WC left. adding Spain to that list might cose a lot of trouble for Fiba....who watched game saw what happend...Croatia was just not alowed to win...Fiba didn't wannt to risk i last match with Spain and Slovenia....So Croatia was left without WC, lost to Slovenia and didn't get WC despite finishing better than all 3 teams that got WC, and prety much destroying two of those teams in direct matches.

    I usually don't bitch about refs, hell I even metnion when my team is favorited by refs but that day was one of sadest in history of sport

    what we miss in general is extra class player to be a leader like Drazen

    who knows our mentality knows that without true leader in Croatia evryone thinks he is better, smarter and what ever...it all ends in confusion and adding emotinal mediteranian metality you get all time chokers And then there is presure of our people who acepts only the best of best, especially when it comes to handball, basketball and watherpolo....the way waedijim desribed our team is totally oposite of how they are seen in Croatia...people don't call Radosevic steady big man here, people call him untalented notorius full, people don't call Zubcic talented and skilled...people lough at scouting reports of those who said he has high BB IQ...For most Croats all of them are crappy players......they say it here for reason....Croatia is land with 4,5 milion coaches

    because slovenia had strong squad, if slovenia beat them in 6th place match then it would be spain, italy, turkey serbia in bid for 3 wc...and you can't throw actuall world champion....so one of 3 big markets would be out, wich also were named or candidates to organize big events in future

    and i don't respect spahija, refs build his carer alot, one ref especially....ales pipan surley remebers those days

    unlike many people here i never had anything against spain, ectually i'm big fan of spain in sports, becuse spin in any sport play game the way i like. with passion and freedom of creativity. whenever i watch game i try to be objetive as much as i can, i admited lot of times here like coatia u-19 vs. new zeland u-19 team that croatia got favorited by refs, but that game still hurts. i remeber that for few hours i just didn't know what to do with my self. didn't wann't to belive what was happenig so i decided to watch game few days leater...and when ever i watched that game same fealings go trough me

    Nikola Mirotic and Serge Ibaka for Spain, the Calathes brothers and Koufos in Greece, JR Holden in Russia

    The last three Eurobasket champions will have foreigners in their roster one way or another

    If you wanna win it this year, this is the first good move

    Calathes brothers and Koufos are of Greek descent...
    Of course, all 3 of them are American basketball "products" but being members of the Greek NT is not the same with Holden in Russia or Draper in Croatia...

    that shouldn't be a surprise, he had a good season that is true. but he never gave anything remarkable to the NT and Vrankovic just got tired of waiting for him to deliver..
    so did I and that is why I find that as a good move..

    the only difference between Draper and Mulaomerović is the fact that Draper is black..

    I don't want Draper in NT either but I will surely support our team even with him in it..

    difrece betwen them is that mulamerovic came to croatia as kid, know language, lived for years in croatia and was long tearm option

    this is short tearm investment and all about money. he gets passport and bigger contract, whille cedevita gets one extra spot for foreigner

    i'm not for him, eduardo or mula, but last two had evry right to get pasport and had some sense
