    So friends of basketball the tournament is about to start. Some words to team turkey. We have the most sized team of the tournament and Görener, Erdek, Kurtuldum and Bona means that well play very fast transition Basketball and our set game weapoin will be Alperen Sengün. Despite having great size we have still uncomplete player. Tibet Deniz Görener is too skinny and 2003 Forward/Center Bona might have a problem with ball handling. Want to see how they worked against their clumsiness with the ball.

    I assume that, if Garuba is healthy, Spain is favorite.

    Germany has a good team too, and then usual candidates as France, Lithaunia, Serbia and turkey good teams too

    I want to see Garuba against Alperen Sengün. I think Garuba is overrated.

    We have some great talents, but not really a good, balanced team based on the preparation games. I am skeptical.

    Great ball sharing of turkey. We had partly problems with playmaking especially in the time where kücük wasnt on the court but our forwards did a very good job. Sezgün was the only really bad guy today. He is still too clumsy and soft. Actually that kid is really a big waste, i would use another comparison for him but Göksenin will get mad again.

    Anyway Kurtuldum is clear, bona had a great defensive game but cant still contribute in a set game but this was expected. Görener did a great job. He looks more aggressive and coordinated but still needs to get stronger and he grew. Atakan Erdek is a good forward at finishing but its a really bad idea to use him as playmaker. We need Ilyasoglu against serious teams.

    Why didn't İlyasoğlu play?

    We are playing like headless chickens. It´s a masterclass tutorial of waste of talent, with the best regards to our "coach". Franz Wagner must be absolutely dominating, but he got benched after three minutes for fucking fourteen minutes. Insane. Besides that he is playing really bad, however this is no wonder based on the stupidity standing outside in front of our bench and doing nothing.

    Yeah you germans have some big play making issues. Doesnt matter how good your forwards or Centers are as long as you dont have a play maker you will always have trouble. Schoorman hasnt shown anything so far and Hukporti also isnt so dominant as expected. No need to worry about germans

    And one word to Femerling. This guy was a joke as player and is a joke as coach.

    Like always, however this problem isn´t only based on the available players. Schoorman, Begue, Baggette and Delow is absolutely decent; off course far away from being an upper level backcourt, but all of them will have a career in our first division as I would predict. From what I have seen Femerling is not capable of coaching at this level. I have never liked him as a player and as coach it is exactly the same. We are just running, a setplay doesn't exist at all. I have not seen even one watchable basket from us.

    Kudos to Van Slooten who is playing even more dumb than with 16.

    It´s so devastating: That team is talent-wise way ahead of our U20 medalist, eventhough we lack some balance and creativity with the ball in our backcourt, the result in form of performance is unacceptable and hopefully Femerling will be gone after the tournament. After watching one preseason and today´s game, I am hopeless regarding an increasing performance. Maybe Wagner and Hukporti will show up the next games and will fulfill the huge expectations due to their amazing tools, however thanks to Femerling our stiffed game won´t change at all, thats for sure.

    You can be good again after our game. We have a good team but I dont want to face spain or france in the quarter finals.

    Thanks, I'm really curious to see him.
    Today our opponent was weak, cannot draw lots of conclusions, but at least we saw that this team can run & shoot.

    offtopic, but he really wasn't. at least until his late years.
