    The serbian fans were absolutely right in being sceptical about their team. Italy's victory paid today 7,25, the bookmakers really got crazy.

    Still I don't understand how Serbia and Croatia chose their coaches, an ex one (Pesic) who should have been retired 5-6 years ago and an ignorant like Mulaomerovic, I never liked him as a player but as a coach is clearly worse.

    What is worse than being eliminated before QF for Serbia is that they have lost the rockbound status in other teams' eyes. Serbia had been a very scary opponent in 2000s that you very well knew they are too superior to cope. Even before tip-off, they used to have mental advantages over their opponents thanks to flashy magic they have.

    After back-to-back unsuccessful tournament runs, Serbia in basketball is definitely not what Brazil in football is. They are no longer being trailed after.

    Great shooting day for Italians. Well played. That defense is praiseworthy.
    Sports is not only considered as a superiority of physical capability. Perception, intelligence and morality assist it as well. The strong with less intelligence and comprehension can not cope with the less strong but with sufficient intelligence and comprehension. I like the sportsman who is intelligent, agile as well as morally upright.

    I think Serbia lost that status after 2002.

    Not only the results, the personality is completely different than in the past. Only the hype still goes on.

    Let see if Czechs can keep the high speed rhythm in the 3rd and 4th quarter.

    I just can see that Giannis is still too limited on the fiba courts. If you lock down the paint and force the Greeks to shoot its difficult for them.

    Giannis 4 points. Czech needed a bigger lead.

    Looks like the next superstar after Jokic will also be eliminated in the top 16 phase. Bad!

    Yes thats one main problem. The other is the bad defense.

    Well, on the other hand Greeks are shooting threes better than expected. I mean, Calathes has two threes...

    All games were close in the group phase. I think Greece will return with strong defense in the 3rd quarter. If this fails then the game is over. So one more quarter and we will know.

    Our team is, and it will be if things go in a normal way, the worst since 1995 (we lost against you I still remember). So, for us reaching Semi finals would be a huge result. Nothing more than this.

    The speciality of the Greeks are they can switch on defense at will and become Spartans at Thermopyla

    We've had bad tournements in a row before, not just last couple of years (as far as I remember Brazil also had quite a few shameful performances in recent past ). The reason why this is so bad right now is that we had the personnel to do big things (at least in theory, on paper) in the last two tournaments but failed pretty hard to benefit from individual talent. We failed to build the winning team in other words. That requires serious analysis going forward.

    I wonder how long Giannis would jump in triple jump? With 1 year training he could set up a world record.

    On the other hand Czechs look completely different with Satoransky back. Truly one of the most underrated floor generals.
