    I like this Serbian team more than the team which won Olympic and World silver medals, so I vote for them. Its good to see C's playing like true old school bigs and not like modern oversized shooting guards/small forwards(read Nowitzki, Markkanen and others with similar style).

    This is favorable match up for us, we are not playing stellar basketball at Euorbasket but against Italy we have a very good chance to advance , physically we are much tougher team especially inside the paint , and that's our advantage going into quarterfinals.

    There are not to many guys here who remember the old days, but whenever we play vs Italy this comes to mind. '83 Eurobasket in Limoges Italians were hitting us on every possession and refs were allowing it, until mayhem happened Kicanovic was basically knocked out on the court with a scuffle that proceeded after that. Some of the highlights were, Kicanovic kicking Villalta in the nuts, Slavnic climbing the press box and the crazy man Grbovic getting the scissors from the team doctor and going at Meneghin Of course the live commentary was priceless

    "Grbovic has the surgical scissors in his hands, please god don't let it happen..."

    Actually, Menegin went to Grbovic, intending to beat him up, Gtrbovic start running on the court to avoid him and he end up (behind a table if I recall correctly) grabbingthe scissors to defend himself. He was terrified.
    It was a very funny incident

    I think Serbians win. Not too impressed of Italy overall but their defense is great of course.

    Italy team defense is great but the lack of ceiling cannot be fully compensated by great defensive strategy..
    To becomes Asia's Best, we need to compete against the World's Best..

    Anyway it's now or never for italians... i doubt we will see a weaker version of this serbian team in the next few years... still a better team than Italy NT, but somewhat playable under certain circumstances.

    that's a good point. SRB with a fuller roster will be very hard to beat in future tournaments so this is a chance for other teams (except ESP which is the favorite regardless) to do well.

    We have a trend in our NT when players are now skipping NT duties with all kind of excuses , I doubt we would ever be in full strength again, we were closest last year , only Bjelica was absent, now more and more of our players are heading for the NBA . NBA teams are able to manipulate our players decisions regarding NT easier than Spain,France and some other economically greater countries.

    Boban as well. I mentioned it earlier, Rio 2016 was as close as we were ever to have full strength since 1995 I think...
