    Sadly croatia aint strong enough. The only hope is if Orenga screws it up.

    Your profile name said it all a long time ago. The combination is called sexual organs and the names of Nazi soldiers from WWII.
    I'm just saying that it is obviously a curse still in effect, is a shame to say that I'm not rooting for the Croatian national team.
    Spain has shown all his strength in duels with Croatian and Serbian team.

    I have a lot of respect for Croatian basketball player, Bogdanovic is one of the best players in the Championship but it was not enough.

    Pity FIBA didn't like us enough to take away one single free throw away from France. We would we playing in the final today.

    Take out Rudy and Navarro (who isn't playing, if you haven't noticed yet) and the rest of Spain exaggerates contact well below the average team. Take your blinders off.

    My opinion- Spain's current team doesn't flop as much as in year's past. However, if you are expecting passionate basketball fans simply to forget about the number of key games and key plays where Spain's past flopping were influential, and not to hold it against the current team, well, I'm not sure that's realistic.

    Take it from an Team USA fan- our recent teams have been, in my opinion, more respectful of their opponents. But that doesn't stop some people from calling them arrogant before they've even taken the court.

    And I think you're also going a little too far when saying that "Spain exaggerates contact well below the average team".

    I have to agree on this one. Seems like it takes a while before people are willing to forget some of the past behaviour.

    Can't tell, didn't watch the game. Got fed with blowouts. Anyway, being favored by the refs doesn't mean you are flopping. Some of you like this word so much you use it for any kind of negative behavior, even for losing games on purpose.

    Did you watch the game? Would the result be any different with fair refereeing?
