    Default Eurocup 2020/21

    I couldn't see any Eurocup thread, so I'll write a few words here...just watched Loko-Virtus fun game, and I have to say Teo's offensive brilliance is still on full display. He is aging pretty well, would come in handy for a lot of Euroleague teams right now.

    I created one for you, indeed it's surprising there wasn't one, was quite sure we have it, but found it only for previous season.

    Regarding Teo, didn't watch the game tonight, but indeed he is still good, another player which is simply dominant and would be great for most EL teams is Teo's rival tonight Alan Williams from Loko, guy has some monstrous double-doubles, just lacks some discipline on court, too many silly fouls which kicks him off the game early at times

    P.S. also surprise of the season so far is Osetkowski from Ulm. Didn't know the guy at all before, just some German friends from Ulm offered him to buy to fantasy team before the season, said he is really good in rpe-season and they were right. 41rkg points yesterday

    Virtus will probably be in Euroleague next season correct? Ostetkowski for some reason I thought he played at Belmont or Davidson. Not a big scorer at Texas, but having a great season.

    I was just about to mention this guy Osetkowski...yes, watched him couple of games, really interesting player, still young, fundamentally sound, nice shooting touch (though he can't keep up with that kind of efficieny). Also has 3 assissts per game, which is great for a big guy. Very interesting player.

    I think so, if I'm not mistaken the condition to get a license was to build an arena with bigger capacity.

    Virtus Bologna sacked Djordjevic.

    https://www.eurocupbasketball.com/eu...-of-djordjevic

    The results have been good in EuroCup but apparently they lost a few games in the Italian League? The club obviously aren't messing around after the signing of Belinelli.
    I can't say that they had looked particularly convincing last season given the money that was invested and I'm sure there's a few posters on here who aren't too surprised by this decision.

    Wow a perfect record in the Eurocup and he gets canned...That's crazy ...Lol

    Gran Canaria 6-2 in the Eurocup and qualified for the next stage i think, but they're facing relegation in the ACB league.....Not only are they losing but they're not even close in any of those games.....They just get pasted every game.....

    Surprised to hear Gran Canaria are struggling so badly. ACB remains a very strong league but they have been such a steady club for a while now.
    I wonder if this disparity in results is hinting at a decline in the quality of the EuroCup?

    Yeah i'm thinking that might be the case.....Can't say for sure because i don't follow the Eurpcup that close....

    The ACB is a blast when there's not too many replays stopping the game all the time.......Fun match-ups and fun teams to watch and more betting angles for me to look for on the weekends....

    The game between Tenerife and Obrodoiro the other day started at noon my time and ended at 1:36....Awesome game with few stoppages and didn't drag at all...Was over quick........Sadly that's not always the case though.....There's times where the refs are at the scorers table every 2 minutes checking replays...Combine that with timeouts, free throws and substitutions and the game has zero flow and it's painful to watch.....

    Ha, sounds ideal.

    Funny thing is though, last season Virtus were performing really well in the Italian league and looking a lot shakier in EuroCup. Probably didn't help that Milano have started the Italian season 10-0.

    Just looked it up...5-4 and in 4th place out of 16 teams.....Serviceable but not great...

    Gran Canaria 2-10 and in 18th place out of 19 teams...They would be relegated if the season ended today.......880 points scored and 1053 points given up...That makes their point differential -173......That's awful.....

    Play-offs are set (best of 3)

    https://www.eurocupbasketball.com/rs...racketqf-1.png

    Virtus with best top16 record will have home court advantage in all rounds, so it makes them even bigger favorites to win the title and EL ticket. Anyway, their side of bracket looks tougher than other one. If Valencia won't make it to EL PO, we might have some French EL newcomer or Gran Canaria/Buducnost in finals and EL too. I guess Bertomeu should not be happy about it.

    I have feeling that ABA champion won't get wildcard if Buducnost takes it (what is highly unlikely though). That's why we root for Monaco
