    Our national team for the eurobasket 2009 looks promising and in good shape, we have young,fresh, and good players such as Yogev Ohayon who showed a great season, Omri Casspi who I don't need to expend on, and Yuval Naimi who will have the chance to shine.

    I think this year we got very very good and quality players that we must use and finally get rid of the 11-7 place and go big, I think this eurobasket we can go far, we have the potential and players. I hope this time we'll break the 2nd Group stage level and go 'till the quarterfinals, my heart says this time it's Israel time to shine and maybe we'll suprise europe. I'm talking about final-four, but before that, we got the qualification games.



    Good Memories.

    This year, I have a good feeling, my heart says we will suprise in the eurobasket and I keep wishing, and hoping we'll finally show everybody who is Israel.

    EL EL ISRAEL

    No Afik Nissim or Izik Ohanon?

    Afik Nissim doesn't want to be in the national clothes anymore, Ohanon just went downhill and I don't have any idea where he play and what he does,

    Amit Tamir is the big guy who throwes crucial 3 pointers when needed [see the game vs croatia], besided, he got in shape this year with Holon and he's a good player.

    Never heard that about Afik...reason? As far as Tamir goes, he's just slow and inconsistant. Never lived up to his potential (which can be said for a lot of Israeli ballers).

    As for Ohanon, last time I heard he was playing well in Belgium.

    Garden? How 'bout on the court.

    Personally I like him, he's got good handle, very athletic, solid D, and is an all around player.

    So that the reason that he scores 0.5 points per a game in the 13th devision in Belguim?

    If he didn't get a call-up it means he isn't good enough. End of story.

    Only one naturalized player is allowed. AFAIK it's gonna be Chris Watson.

    Not sure about this one, following the bad blood between him and Sherf. Yet another reason why the NT coach cannot be the coach of an Israeli team (especially one that sends so many players to the NT).


    "...uh, is there anyone, like, cool in here?"

    we all know what Lior's worth, and how much he can contribute, if Sherf will keep fuck*ng him 'cause of Maccabi, so he shall not be longer the Israeli squad coach.

    Lior is just pure talent and he can give so much to the game, I whould like to see him play alot, I DARE SHERF TO FUCK WITH ME.

    Hey you talk like the guy in your avatar.
    But seriously, even Eliyahu was skeptical about his chances to be summoned to the final roster. Maybe it was just an aftershock of his current season in Maccabi.

    So what you want Chris Watson to play? PF/C?
    he's perfect for me as a SF,

    So as Erez Katz, Katz doesn't have the shooting for SG or the PG abillity, but he's doing good job in the SF spot, what the hell you want?
