    Is this the best format ever?
    close. the best format, imho, would eliminate F4, and go for playoffs all the way. With so many regular season games, F4 does not feel right.

    Papagiannis is good today, better than what the stats imply.

    Agreed. And the best team will always win the cup in the end.

    Final Four is always 50% luck. Its more exciting because you have final feeling but also weaker teams win many times.

    We have Rion Brown and Bentil both actually not euroleague ready Player

    We have Vougiouskas can´t give the Team not more then 5 qualitative minutes.

    Wesley Johnsons not in Euroleague mode, can´t give the teams mutch, the same goes for Willy under Pitino

    then we have Pappas out of shape and always injured

    So we are playing with just one true PG and just one Center as Fredette and Rice are true SG

    So we have 5 Player, who are not really in the rotation (Willy not included).

    The result is we need a starting Center and a PG if we want to have a chance to win a playoffs series

    Khimki always wth mental errors on defense..They did that in their VTB game on monday and collapsed in the 4th...
    Awesome roster and depth but they just cant seem to put it all together.....



    Not sure what to say about Baskonia at this point...I keep picking them every week thinking they are better than what they are showing but man it's ugly for them right now.....

    If Campazzo can last till end, Real is the first favorite for the title.

    Yeah they're a machine right now...Not easy to win in Athens but they made it look easy today for the most part.....PAO had a little hope at the end of the 3rd...

    I know when Llull gets back it will take some pressure off Campazzo but will it throw off the chemistry they have going right now ?

    I know they're all use to playing together but it will make things different.....

    It looked easy because it was. When Calathes-Papapetrou-Tomas are mediocre/bad, Pao can lose from any team.

    It does take two teams to make a result....

    Unfortunately for Pao, Calathes-Papapetrou-Tomas are almost always mediocre, when big games are in play.

    Pao should get rid of the dead weight.

    Not true. Lately they are out of form no matter the opponent. There is a big difference in comparison with some time ago.

    Just came back from OAKA. Not much to say, Real was leagues better than us in every possible way. At times they made it seem effortless.

    It feels like every time Thompkins comes to Athens he turns into PJ Tucker :P

    I’m disappointed because I was expecting more of a fight. Oh well, let’s hope (again) that there will be some useful transfers.

    2.6 mio for a player like Calathes is too much and everything starts from there.

    ^this. We need players that can contribute. We can’t “afford” having players that just take up space.

    What about the 1.000.000 to Johnson , the 800.000 to Pappas, any amount of money for Beddil, Vougioukas, Brown?
    Calathes is the best player of the team but he plays constantly on overdrive and there are physical and psychological limits.
