    1st: Emir is one of the indispensable players in FB, we want him to keep no matter what. So he DID NOT need Turkish passport in order to play for FB

    2nd: Almost every team has a 1 neutralized player in TBL, because there's a ridiculuous rule - if we consider it as a rule(!) - that a player who plays 3 year in Turkey can obtain Turkish passport. There are many neutralized player in Turkey, but nobody except Emir was considered as a candidate for Turkish NT ( last year in newspapers its written that maybe Tarence Kinsey could be a candidate ) So his neutralization WAS NOT related with National Team, Fenerbahše,we, wanted to use this ridiculuous rule for the good of team. Because of that Mrsic had to retire.

    3rd: Governments, federations or etc cannot deprive of a person's citizenship without any crime he/she did it. So, someones could threat him, but cannot claim that he will lose his citizenship if he does not play for NT.

    4th: No wonder he does not play for Turkish pride. Imo he wants to play for us because of money and reputation. Do you remember how much money our roster got from government last year ?

    I think that it's a same old story about club+federation pressure on the naturalised player. If you wanna be counted as a naturalised player then play for our NT. It's the exactly same thing as it was in the cases of J.R. Holden, CSKA and our NT and is in the case of David Blu(thental), MTA and Israeli NT. I think that this sort of things characterise badly all sides involved - the player not brave enough to say "no" if he doesn't want to play for his "naturalised" NT, and the club and federation who want to force player to play for their NT "forgetting" that NT is only for those who not only want to play in it but also think of it as of a great honour and reponsibility. The main point here which make this odious situation especially ugly is that Preldzic was already naturalised by Slovenian NT and played for them in serious tournaments like, f.e., Olympic qualification. After that Emir said that he wants to play for his motherland BiH and that's a reasonable point and I think if we see him in this champ alongside Teletovic and Djedovic almost no one would complain (no would I at least ). It's the same thing as in the case of Ermal Kurtoglu and Turkey/Albania national teams and it's the most reasonable and morally right situation if we considering NT-change. But Bosnian federation seemed to haven't enough money and desire for the instituonalised bribe to FIBA in the form of buy-out. So suddenly Turkish BB federation appears and... we all know that turks and bribes are two things inseparable I think that Emir is at least very decent player but this style of his behaviour makes me think of him as of personality in rather negative light. Shame on him! And all sides involved (greedy FIBA included).

    Default preldzic's interview

    few hours ago preldzic was on the Turkish tv replying the questions about this issue. he said the interview published on slovenian media was misunderstanding, he had said before that he didn't want to play any national team after declined to play for Bosnian NT. he added that now he's very happy to be at the Turkish NT and he is like playing for a long time with the other players.

    can someone explain how the hell he was approved to
    play for our NT, while he was rejected to play for Bosnian NT?

    this topic has a good point and I admit that.

    Just check out my previous post... FIBA needed some kinda document from Slovenian Basketball Federation which says he is ineligible to play for Slovenian NT..

    Probably they asked some money in order to give it from Bosnian BF.. they couldnt(or didnt) pay it... After that Emir got Turkish passport(after playin 3 years in Turkey he earns that right.). Tanjevic asked him to play for Turkish NT. As Tanjevic was both Turkish NT and Fenerbahce coach he easily convinced him.. And probably Turkish Basketball Federation paid some money(rumors says its 300k euros) to Slovenian side in order to get that document...

    I wonder if preldzic hasn't played very well, would they have claimed that he was forced to play? Probably not.

    Yes, we are forcing him at pistol point before the games begin because his performance is great, he is the best of the team while he is on the court.

    this answer is quite satisfying to me.
    so lets stop the threatening bullshit and keep watching
    his great performance in Turkish NT.
    seems that slovenian and turkish BF made an agreement
    within FIBA regulations. other than that I guess it would
    be impossible for him to play.

    And if they made agreement that Slovenia would lose deliberately to Turkey, would it be OK too?

    Nop not in Fiba regulations. Fiba regulations clearly states that if a player plays for a certain country in a fiba tournament (Preld×ič case: U20, U18, U16, Olimpic tournament for Slovenian NT) CAN NOT in any way change his nationality. There is a small print somewhere that he can return to his native country (Bosnia) but even that with a lot of other factors (in case of new born country like Kosovo, etc...)

    I really like Begič because he said that he feels Bosnian but he is aware that if he would not move to slovenia for training he would never succed. Preld×ič isn't aware of that.

    Anyhow i would like this matter to end. Preld×ič plays for Turkey now and thats final. Turks should get used to statments like mentioned in the previous post and ignore them. Its not his first stupid statment and definitly not last. I would like to let Emir play and not to be constantly under watch.

    It's actually humanly impossible for Preldzic to play for Turkey, and he should be in the Bosnian NT with Bogdanovic, Begic , Teletovic, Preldzic and Wright
