    Georgian Top Internationals Prospects

    Georgia is among the countries that produces very skilful players for years. As 4.7 million population small country we are expecting to have one or two big time talents in each generation. Let's take a look of those talents in each generation.

    1992 - Merab Bokolishvili
    Merab Bokolishvili is a 198cm long-range bomber and has loads of potential. He's athletic wing players, who will most likely have to transition to the point guard position in the big basketball. His extraordinary size for a PG combined with his ability to score with the jumper, make him a tough match up. He glides to the basket with precision and ease and has a great 'feel' for the game. He can take the ball off the dribble and finish or drop a dime. Merab will be probably next European college player in the NCAA D1 after two 2 upcoming seasons.

    1991 - Tornike Shengelia
    There has been talk of Shengelia being 'The Next Best Thing' ever since he left from Georgia. Tornike has great athleticism, quickness and fantasy. He can step back and knock down the jumper, step even further back and knock down the three, and can even play with his back to the basket with his effective post moves. He is a very versatile player at 207cm with extremely dedicated work ethic. The fact that he's such a big perimeter player, so talented and intelligent, leads us to think that he will be able to adjust to any level of basketball he's thrown in, even NBA.

    1990 - Levan Shengelia
    Levan is very good athlete. He does what he looks like he should do C bang on the inside, grab rebounds, and with his 216cm wingspan, anchor his team's interior defense. Very competitive and eager to improve, there are no motivation question marks with him. He battles at all times to establish post position and is very active on the court. He is a very good rebounder especially on the offensive glass where he is relentless. He's having professional preparation in the USA currently and most likely he's at least to get full scholarship in one of the high ranked college in the NCAA D1.

    1989 - Giorgi Shermadini
    Shermadini started playing basketball in January 2005, when he was 16 years old. Despite his brief playing experience, he became top international player in his age category, also ranked by DraftExpress.com in the summer of 2008. His stats on U20 European Championships 2008 all together appeared highest ever (21.5ppg, 10.5rpg, 3.7bpg, FGP 73.8%). A lot NBA scouts are considering Shermadini as a lottery pick on NBA Draft. Hes more physical Pau Gasol type player, who is currently playing in one of the biggest European team Panathinaikos Athens.

    Could someone translate this (gogle translate cant do it):

    ფრთხილად, შვედი მზვერავი!


    წუხელ თბილისში ჩამოსულ სლოვაკეთის ნაკრებს შვედეთის ნაკრების ასისტენტი მწვრთნელი პუნტუს ფრივოლდი ჩამოყვა. თავგადაპარსული შვედი ერთი შეხედვით შეიმჩნეოდა სლოვაკებს შორის, თანაც ქურთუკზე წარწერა ჰქონდა: SVERIGE – ანუ შვედეთი.

    ლინდი სიტყვაძუნწი აღმოჩნდა და არ ისურვა გამოლაპარაკება, მხოლოდ ღიმილით დაკმაყოფილდა. ის რიგის რეისს ჩამოჰყვა და ამიტომ ახლდა სლოვაკებს, თორემ მათ დელეგაციაში კი არ შედიოდა. სლოვაკებმა თქვეს, რომ ის შვედეთის ნაკრების ასისტენტი მწვრთნელია, თორემ პირისპირ რომ შევხვედროდი, შეიძლება ვერც კი გამეგო, ვინ იყო.

    ლინდი საქართველოში ჩვენი ნაკრების დასაზვერად ჩამოვიდა და ხვალინდელ მატჩსაც დაესწრება. შეგახსენებთ, რომ სკანდინავიელებთან მატჩი 26 აგვისტოსაა დანიშნული.

    AFAIK the best you can do is to use an alphabet converter like this one I also tried to find an online tanslator, but unsuccessfully. Maybe some Georgian user can see this and help you.

    6000, 7000, 8500, and 9600 people came to see Georgia qualification games to Division A, although most games ended with a blow out.
    The great tradition from the soviet times was always there, the great generation of players is there now for years (never understood why they were in Division B at the first place), the national team interest by the public seems high by the numbers. The grand sports palace at Tbilisi has been renovated in recent years, and is up to the highest standards (even EL..), I assume.
    The duel against Belarus will a close one, but I think they will make it to Division A.

    I think the next step for them is a Good EuroCup cup team level then can be competitive, maybe bring back some of the national team players to strengthen it. I don't understand why they don't have teams at the EuroChallange at the first place, maybe someone could elaborate on that.
