    Barcelona found the new brazilian jewel - Dec 10, 2010 (by Paulo Freire)
    He has only 15 years of life, but Fernando Henrique has incredible 2.07 m tall and has already impressed. One of the possible future of the exponents of Brazilian basketball, he has already left the country and today plays for the Barcelona,and is prepares to tread a path such as Tiago Splitter did.

    Vice-champion of the South American Under-15 with Brazil a few weeks ago, this kid born on Belo Horizonte was stopping at one of the top Spanish teams of basketball, believe, without even play for a Brazilian club.

    'Last year I was in a training camp in Uberlandia and one staff from Spain watched me and invited me to a try-out. I went with my mother and furtunually I pass,' Fernando recalls.

    Besides the natural resemblance of Tiago Splitter, the 15 years old boy also is constantly compared to Anderson Varejao, who was the Barcelona center before moving to the NBA.

    Vanderlei Mazzuchini, director of men's Brazilian N.T. teams of the CBB, praised the stance that Fernando has. 'He had a very nice atitute, because he has the desire to play for Brazilian national team. The club refused to pay his airplane ticket to Brazil and we said that it would be OK because we saw his interest in playing for the national team. We want this ideology. ' said Vanderlei.

    Brazilians in U.S. College - Feb 3, 2011 (by Paulo Freire)
    Although inherent talent and hard work are essential to basketball success, there are certain steps you can take to increase your chances of a pro-baller.
    A lot of brazilians are doing great in some of the U.S. Colleges following their dream of becoming a professional in the near future.
    Most of them are learning a positive attitude as they practice and strive to keep their basketball skills exceptional .

    Some of them are willing to play at a small-division school across the country if that's what it takes. Other go directly to the top schools in the country.
    But whatever is the case, all of them are walking on the college team and work their butt off to show they can play the game.

    Here are some of the new Brazilian faces in college:

    Gerson Junior (207-C-91) The big man is in his first season at University of Southern Mississipi

    Rodrigo Silva (206-C-90) The 6'10 Weight 225 former is at his freshmann year at Laramie County Community College in Wyoming

    Cesar Mapeli (202-F-90) The 6'8 who Weight 215 is in his freshmann year at NEO, NE OKLAHOMA A&M CC

    Renan Lenz (205-C-90) The forward former Araraquara is in his freshmann year at Arizona Western CC

    Adonis Chatzicharalambous (190-G-90) The point guard forme Sorocaba is at his Sophomer year at Arizona Western CC

    Mateus Granusso Oliveira former Limeira (2007-2010) who was born in Jan 01, 1991 is a freshmann, playing forward at Arizona Western CC

    Couldn't he have changed his name as to not seem more Greek than that ... Also I never knew there were Greek Brazilians

    The former Brazilian Basketball Confederation president was greek (Gerasime Bozikis, also called Greek).

    The president from National League is from Iran: Kouros Monadjemi.

    That is Brazil...

    I am intrigued about Lucas Nogueira and his athleticism and the natural instincts for the defense as Nogueira reminds me of a young Tyson Chandler.

    So, you're early 1/4 of the time, really late 1/4 of the time, moderately late 1/4 of the time, and on the beach 1/4 of the time?

    I'm terrible.
    "I really like the attitudes of eagles. They never give up. When they grab a fish or something else, they never let it go. It doesn't matter. In a book, they write they find a skeleton of [an] eagle and there is no fish. It means that the fish beat him and killed him, but he didn't let go." -- Donatas Motiejunas

    I'm Brazilian first, no doubt about that. I like all my heritage cultures, but I wouldn't feel like I belong in any of those countries. I have German citizenship too, but even if I lived there I would feel Brazilian.

    LOL. In fact you are close to reality. I wish I could spend more time on the beach.

    I'm intrigued as well. Maybe Magnano can find a way to make him play some games for our NT and we could have a better look on him against older players.

    He should withdraw if that's the case and wait for next year.
