He likes it more to play as SF, but he is definetly more effective when he plays as PF, because his 3-point shooting is bad. But he had some huge games for Buducnost this season in NLB against good teams. Mijatovic would be better suited as SG with a PG starting wiht him who is a first pass PG. This could be Nikola Rakocevic (91/Real Madrid). Rakocevic and one of the bests talents from 91 generation Nikola Mirotic will play for Montenegro in the future. Mirotic is the best 91 born player in Spain. The U16 looks also good so far. Especially Sekulovic (Dzoker Podgorica there also Rakocevic and Mirotic played before they went to Madrid) and Aleksander Dobrovic (Buducnost). Dobrovic seems to be a very good shooter. The PG Lazovic leads the competition in assists and Nemanja Radovic (PF 204) seems to be a big man with a nice touch from outside. This team has enough quality i think and that without Mirotic and Rakocevic. In Bar they lost only 81-84 against the U16 from Serbia in a tough match.

    Montenegro - Serbia 81-84 (26-24 18-20 28-28 09-12)

    Arena: Sala OŠ "Jugoslavija", attendance: 1000

    Montenegro: Ivanović 8 (3-2), Marić 8 (1-1), Lazović 11 (3-1), Velimir 2, Loncović 10, Ljujić 1 (4-1), Kuveljić 11 (4-4), Teodorović 2, Dugošija 2, Đurišić 2, Sekulović 19 (2-1), Radović 5

    Serbia: Jaramaz 11 (8-5), Ponjavić 2 (2-2), Nikolić 2, Obradović 3, Vukasović 6 (6-4), Lekić 3 (2-1), Anđušić 11, Radosavljević 12 (6-6), Jovanović, Rondović 5 (2-1), Đekić 10 (4-4), Musli 19 (4-3)

    And not to forget Marko Loncovic (plays in Zvezda) and Jovan Teodorovic (plays in Partizan).

    And at the U18 there are also some interesting players like Savovic, Lalic, Sead Sehovic and Lopicic. Sehovic is maybe the best player here. His older brother Suad did also a very nice job at the U20 and was in the top 5 of the tournament and the 2nd best player in the team after Dasic. Both are great shooters. And not to forget Boris Savovic.
    I agree that there are talents, but most of the playrs you have mentioned have not yet seen any senior competition and therefore it is hard to estimte their true limit. I was just talking about the players that have seen the Adriatic league and that are very hyped curently and I think not rightly so. As for Mijatovic you are right that he shuld play sg, but it is interesting that when I watched the kadets in Belgred where he was paired with Teodosic t was Teodosic who was moved to the sg spot. But that was a long time ago. I don't deny them talent and good future careers, but am very sceptical about their heart and/or basketball IQ.

    Very true. Perfect example about why Dasic should just swallow the bullet and stick to PF is Macvan. He accepted the fact that he is a undersized PF and is making the most of it. Not to compare them athletically or anything.

    Why is Montenegro's best 2 '91 players playing in Spain?

    Omar Cook's manager is reportedly trying to get him montenegrian passport meaning he would be eligible for Montenegro NT.

    Peković, Vranješ, Micov, Sekularac, Dašić, Cook, Jeretin, Bakić bros., Sekulić, Koljević, while leaving out some older players as Drobnjak, Bogavac...
    Montenegro will have a good NT with our without Cook anyway, but I am slowely coming to an idea 2nd fibaeurope division will be a piece of cake for them, causing aditional worry to Fiba since there will be even more teams from ex-Yu among the 16 teams on big competitions and they can't really do much about it.

    Micov will not play for Montenegro. They wanted him, but he said no.

    The Montenegrin NT looks good no doubt, but they still have a long way too go and some of the players are still developing.

    slovenian bball portal prostimet.com reports that Golubović will play for Montenegro, dissapointed that Slavnić didn't put him on the wider list for eurobasket 07.

    Looks like he is now:

    Omar Cook had an outstanding campaign as a guard in Serbia's top flight with Red Star Belgrade and now he'll try to continue his dominance in the Balkans after agreeing to play for Montenegro's national team.

    Cook, a native of Brooklyn, New York, who played college basketball at St John's University, was the Adriatic League's fourth leading scorer.

    He recently became a citizen of Montenegro, which neighbours Serbia.

    "This is a big opportunity for me," the 26-year-old said to the Montenegrin newspaper Vijesti.

    "Montenegro has plenty of quality players and a great coach. All of that will give me another big chance to raise the level of my performances. My decision to play for Montenegro was tough, but I'm sure I've made the right choice.


    Cook, who averaged 14.8 points, three steals and 6.9 assists for Red Star in the domestic league, finished the season in the country's domestic play-off semi-finals.

    His "red-and-whites" lost that series 2-0 to reigning champions Partizan Belgrade.

    On that Partizan team was Nikola Pekovic, the Montenegro national team center. Partizan are also coached by Montenegro's national team boss, Dusko Vujosevic.

    "Pekovic is the best in Europe at his position," Cook said. "With him under the basket, it will be much easier for me as a playmaker. I don't know the other players at the moment, but I'm really looking forward to being in the same team with Pekovic. Up to now, we've played against each other, but in Belgrade we've become friends, not just rivals on the court."

    Danilo Mitrovic, the Montenegro Basketball Federation supremo, welcomed Cook's decision to become a citizen of Montenegro.

    "We've solved our biggest problem, the playmaker position in our national team," Mitrovic said.


    "With him as point guard, I really don't have a doubt that we'll win promotion from EuroBasket Division B. Cook, (Vlado) Scepanovic, (Djuro) Ostojic, (Predrag) Drobnjak will help our youngsters through the forthcoming qualifications, and I think we won't have any problems against Iceland, Holland, Austria and Denmark.

    "In fact, I think we would have been successful even if we were playing qualification games for the EuroBasket in Poland."

    Zarko Cabarkapa.
    I came across his name for some odd reason and I discovered that he hasn't played in over two years! What's up with him, did he retire because of his recurring injuries?

    I was also suprised to see him on the roster. Recurring back injury as far as I know. I think he was selected for his role during the independence referendum. Athough he was born and grew up in Serbia, he was for the secession. And the worst is that he is actually living in Belgrade. We should kick him out of our land.

    The Montenegrin national team begin his trainig camp today.
    Goran Jeretin (Kiev)
    Nenad Mijatović (Budućnost)
    Ivan Koljević (Ural Great)
    Vlado Šćepanović (Granada)
    Nebojša Bogavac (Le Mans)
    Boris Bakić (Crvena zvezda)
    Bojan Bakić (Maroussi)
    Vujadin Subotić (AEL Limassol)
    Suad Šehović (Bosna Sarajevo)
    Žarko Čabarkapa (without team)
    Miloš Borisov (Hemofarm)
    Milko Bjelica (Lietuvos rytas)
    Goran Nikolić (Panionios)
    Ivan Ivanović (Bosna Sarajevo)
    Ivan Maraš (Budućnost)
    Predrag Drobnjak (Bešiktaš)
    Nikola Peković (Panatinaikos)
    Vladimir Golubović (without team)
    Slavko Vraneš (Partizan)
    Đuro Ostojić (Panelionios)
    Žarko Rakočević (Budućnost)

    Four players from Vujosevic preliminary list are missing : Vladimir Dasic (Buducnost, currently playing the U20 championship), Omar Cook (Unicaja Malaga, still in New York, will join the team in few days), Blagota Sekulic
    (problems with Vujosevic since he left Partizan) and Aleksandar Pavlovic (it's a long story, I think he will probably never play for Serbia or for Montenegro)

    But i am quiet sure that James Bond (for the people who are not so familar with Serbian basketball Dusan "Dule" Vujosevic) will put a good team together. With Pekovic and Cook "we" have to very strong players for C and PG. To qualify for the A-Division will not be a big problem.

    Pavlovic has nothing to do with Montenegrian NT. He already decided. I dont care if he was born on Mars. Fat pig is just trying to provoke us.

    I agree, it's clearly a provoCation. We should strike back, I propose to call Nikola Mirotic in our senior squad. We should also retire citizenship to all serbians who are in Montenegro squad. As far as I know, our country don't have any agreement with Montenegro about double citizenship. So, Golubovic, Vranes and others who aren't on this list (Savovic, Bozovic) should play as foreign players.
    And to finish, the real Dusko Vujosevic's nickname is "Homer Simpson".

    AlbionGate, how you evaluate Milko Bjelica's chances to get into last 12 men's Montenegro squad? I think no chance
    Valdas Dabkus, Tau Ceramica

    I think he can be in the squad who will play in B division qualification for various reasons :
    _ because Zarko Cabarkapa is still recovering from a huge back injury and he won't play.
    _ because Djuro Ostojic won't play too (problems with his team).
    _ because Predrag Drobnjak and Nikolic Goran are "old" and they are considering to retire from NT after the symbolic friendly game against Bosnia.
    _ because the best Montenegrin PF, Vladimir Dasic will probably play SF because this position is the weakest in the team (Vujadin Subotic is injured too).
    So, Milko Bjelica will compete with Ivan Ivanovic, Ivan Maras and Zarko Rakocevic (an undersize C) and he is better than this players.

    Head coah Dule Vujosevic revealed his preliminary list.

    PG Omar Cook (186 1982 Unicaja SPA)
    PG Ivan Koljević (186 1984 Cherkasy UKR)
    G Goran Jeretin (192 1979 AEL Limasol CYP)
    G Boris Bakić (195 1986 Crvena zvezda SRB)
    SG Vlado Šćepanović (198 1975 Granada SPA)
    SG/SF Sead Šehović (200 1989 Budućnost)
    SF Miloš Borisov (201 1985 Hemofarm SBR)
    F Vladimir Dašić (208 1988 Budućnost)
    F Boris Savović (206 1987 Hemofarm SRB)
    F Nikola Vučević (208 1990 USC Trojans NCAA)
    F Nikola Mirotić (208 1991 Real Madrid SPA)
    PF Ivan Maraš (207 1986 Budućnost)
    PF Ivan Ivanović (205 1980 Bosna BIH)
    PF Milko Bjelica (207 1984 Lietvos Ritas LTU)
    PF/C Predrag Drobnjak (211 1975 Efes Pilsen TUR)
    PF/C Žarko Rakočević (204 1984 Partizan SRB)
    C Nikola Peković (210 1986 Panatinaikos GRE)
    C Vladimir Golubović (212 1986 Olimpija SLO)
    C Slavko Vraneš (229 1983 Partizan SRB)
    C Đuro Ostojić (209 1976 Panelionios GRE)

    Since Ferbruary, Suad Sehovic (SG 197 1987 Bosna) had great games in Adriatic League, I'm really surprised that Vujosevic didn't select him. On the other hand, Blagota Sekulic (PF/C 209 1982 Alba Berlin) isn't in the team as expected, because of unfriendly terms with the montenegrin head coach.
