    Default Paraguay National Team

    Interview with the coach on fiba.com. Nice to see they expect to be competitive

The third and most important expectation is dreaming of moving to the next phase, which means needing to defeat one of the rivals in the group.

    That's funny -- taking photos with Manu Ginobili is their first goal, and there second goal is to get some upsets.
    "I really like the attitudes of eagles. They never give up. When they grab a fish or something else, they never let it go. It doesn't matter. In a book, they write they find a skeleton of [an] eagle and there is no fish. It means that the fish beat him and killed him, but he didn't let go." -- Donatas Motiejunas

    Funny. I don't know how good Paraguay is but this reminds me after Saudi Arabia lost to China 10-98 in 2005 Asian Championship, the players requested Yao Ming take a photo with them.


    And Yao didn't even play in that game.

    This reminds me of when Uruguay played against Team USA in the 2007 FIBA Americas Championship.

    The Uruguayan media heavily criticised the team for not being competitive and being obsessed in having their photos taken with the players after the game.
