    That's my opinion honestly.
    Just imagine the the starting 5 Maccabi started the season with:
    1. Walters ( injured)
    2.Willbekin
    3. Zoosman(injured)
    4.Casspi(injured)
    5.Black(injured)
    4/5 of the starting lineup are injured.

    Imo Efes is super talented on offence but Maccabi tougher on deffence.

But to be honest, this discussion is pretty pointless. You play with whatever players you have, and you win, thanks G-d.

    Efes was half season without Moerman (top3 PF previous season) and they are two months without Dunston (among best talls in league). And they have one of the best scorers in euroleague history.

    But it's not just about invidual quality, Efes is playing like a clock. Maccabi is good but still....

    your zoosman casspi as ideal starting five is quite excessive. and even with all of them i think barca and real and factually fener , were stronger. but it doesnt mean it wanst a very good tam as i wrote many time after summer market. the big mistake it was the repleacement of diba black.we needed two great players as diba black are.

    Efes needs to keep focussed and think step by step. This Fenerbahce is no match for Efes and it wont change much in the playoffs. Any other team is also too weak.

    The main difference to last season is Singleton imo. If moerman finds his rhythm even a bit it will make life much easier in the final four. In addition neither CSKA nor Real looks like very dangerous right now but the weather for Real can change from the play offs on but we will see.

    If Efes cant win Euroleague this time it will probably never...

    I am not impressed with Real and Barcelona.
    both tesms with strong rosters but actually they both have their own problems:
    Barcelona with chemistry and Real with some older stars and lacking solid PG backup.

    I really cant stand this lobotomized face expression of Papagiannis. He really has a disinterested body language + face.

    I hope Maccabi has about $5 million or so to pay him then. Pretty weak draft. I think he could go top 3.

    This Efes season really made me think if Final 4 is the right format. For long time a team was not that dominant but in 40 minutes anything can happen in one game. In a series they really would be healthy a big favourite against all. I root for them because of their incredibly fair and polite fans from which we can all learn from and their gentlemen's behavior of their organization. They would deserve it this year.

    this is a very good point. with this formula , when all team match all teamm, after long season i absolutely think the winne should be the first team at the end of reg season, but u know, this is not just sport. is show and show it means earnings. so if u add playoffs and f4 to a reg season , tv sponsors add much money.

    Of course we need playoffs, it's basketball. But we need a best-of-5 until the final to really see who is best. But this topic has been spoken about a million times. I agree that F4 is most exciting.

    im in need to spend words to othello. i was absolutely against his add in summer for two reason:
    1 if u have black as a power c under the basket we needed to add a c with mid range shoot and able to play even as pf.
    2 his age
    so not becuas of his value. anyway he is playing amazn bball. as 2nd c he could stay next year as i still hope black could be the 1st

    Here we go again....
    BOTH players are injured, for Pete's sake! I love them both, but neither is coming back tomorrow. Let it go.
    Looking at the market and disastrous past seasons signings over the years, Maccabi's signings are more than OK. Reynolds is quite effective, Stodemayor is pretty good for his age, with lots of basketball intelligence. Jackson just gave very solid game. I hope that during the break Jackson, Wilbekin and Acy will get over their ankle injuries, and Zoosman should be back soon as well. Black hopefully will return soonish too.
    Next game is a bit of a mine, but let's wait and see.
    Yalla Maccabi!!!

    Save English, ban macabeo....

    What's unbilievable about this shot is that a chair would put up bigger resistance than Malcolm Thomas

    You might not be able to stand him but he's on the rise.

    5.2 PIR last season. 8.6 so far this year.

    Same age comparison with Milutinov.

    Same applies to Dinos Mitoglou.

    4 PIR last season. 7.8 this year.

    Same age comparison with Printezis.

    PAO doing a great job developing these two players.
