    I'd prefer Germany, Macedonia and Britain.

    It's a shame to see that Italy or France or even the both of them will miss out . It won't be the same without them.

    Well, Parker took the Dirk mode, so, he will be there. He just needs at least one other player hitting the open 3 on a regular basis. Not a bunch of guys you can watch shooting and then take the rebound.

    I don't think so. France will gather a good TEAM or they will lose to Italy (they might bring good team). France won't make it with Parker and ONE MORE PLAYER

    I'm really satisfied with the rivals we have got in the first stage of the competition, but in 2nd round (if we will get there) will be really tough. A lot of will depend on which players we and other teams will have in their squad for this EC

    I like it. If we are for real, we don't need to fear anyone, if we suck as always we go home already after group stage.

    Slovenia - Serbia
    Macedonia - Greece

    Haha.

    It looks like that group B is the easyest one.

    Israel placed not in an easy group, wich Greece in the big favorite here, and Croatia is 2nd.

    Are there any absentees we already know about?

    Dirk won't play for sure. Because of that, Kaman will probably not play either. Germany without Dirk (and many other veterans?) will not pose a problem for too many teams. Playing without Kaman is a huge lift though.

    Pau said he probably won't play, but he hasn't decided 100% yet.

    With the probable inclusion of France or Italy to Group B, I think we can say all the groups will have similar strength, at least on paper.

    Tough matchup for BG. I expect us to fight with Poland for the 3rd place and the chance to go through. Just like 4 years ago we have to face LTU and TR against both of which we had great games. It will be interesting.

    Group C is the toughest probably. Spain is the fav of course but it will be interesting to see how Serbia looks like. Tough luck for GB. In any other group they could have a chance for an upset win. Not here.

    Group B is probably the easiest. I wonder whether we will see the Russia of 2007 or last summer's Russia. Germany will be without Dirk, which means that we have no idea where they stand up. I expect France or Italy to be the 4th team here. Really unpredictable group.

    Group A: It will be between Greece and Croatia I guess. The games between
    them had been decided by a buzzer beater the last 2 times they met. Israel yet again in Greece's group. Will this be the time to beat them?

    I'm guessing my fellow brothers will be smart enough not to show up with any funny names like that on their jerseys. They won't risk a disqualification. I expect tension in the stands. It will take only 1 fan from each side to create a mayhem in there.
    The Euroleague Organization and Mr Bertomeu are like the Bulgarian Government: corrupt, partially stupid, and a huge underestimator of people's intelligence.

    Siskauskas said that he retires from NT, so if he won't change his mind (I really doubt that he will), we won't see him in EC.
    Songaila before OG said that tournament in Beijing will be tha last one for him wearing LT NT jersey. But after he missed it because of back injury, he said that he'll think about possible come back to the squad.
    Jasikevicius, Lavrinovic brothers most probably will make their decisions after the clubs' season will be over.

    Portugal couldn't be in a better group, they avoided France and Italy. BiH and Belgium are not soft, but at least there's a real chance to reach the qualification final (not exactly to be in Poland). Finland with very little chances of course.
    Oh yes elaj, those clashes will be very interesting
    I still cannot believe Germany will be Dirkless, I got used to watching him in every Eurobasket in the past few years, it'll be hard to handle. Dirk makes bad habits

    Quite good group for us. Questions only who will win qualifier tournament( i hope Italy, because France very unpleasent contender for us.) and will Holden to play for us next year or not ( even if not, i don,t want to see naturalize americans nevermore. It,s time to develop homegrown players.)
