It's not that with Mekel we would qualify for the top-8 for sure, but surely our chances would increase. We can pass the first group stage, beside France I don't think that we less good then any other NT (Germany without Nowitzky, GB without Deng) and then in the last 12 I hope that we can manage to qualify in a miracle way to the top 8, which will be a huge achievement for us. Our usual problem will be the paint, because we cannot succee when Green & Kozi our C and the new generation is nothing to tell about. So I guess Tyus will perform as 5 and we'll try to maximize it because at the other positions we're definitely OK.
    ok, will mekel play european championship?
    plus, do our coach, considering our problems in the paint, is basing our teams on a monodimensional perimetral team,as he should,( like siena for example) or not?.if i cant count on the paint why dont base my plans on perimeter?

    No, Mekel won't be in the Eurobasket.

    I didn't understand what you wanted to say regarding our paint problem. It's a national team, you cannot sign all of a sudden Ante Tomic to solve your problems. We have Yaniv Green, Ido Kozikaro & Cubrevich, non of them is in a Eurocup level at the moment. So I didn't understood what do you want from Shivak to do?? Because of our C problem, Tyus will perform as a C, Lior as a PF and Omri as a SF.
    5 times European champion
    50 times domestic league champion
    40 times domestic cup holders
    4 times league cup holders
    1 time Adriatic league champion
    1 time intercontinental cup holders

    paint problem..i meant that israeli population is not so tall so we historically had problems with c and pf. is something we cant solve and nobody is guilty for it,but i guess it was easy to understand what i meant
    having a team with no big men to face stronger big men by all over europe,i'd try built a sistel like the one siena plyaed, just based on perimeter. sure, is not optimal to play onedimensional bball, sure, but this way give more chances as siena showed easily even having no c.
    could u tell me how many 3 points israel attempt vs georgia and italy?

    According to David Pick via twitter;
    D'Or Fischer is married to a Israeli woman, and yet he is not qualified for Israeli citizenship. Why? Thought anyone who married Israeli can qualify for Israeli citizenship. What's going on?

    He probably never asked for the citizenship.
    I can't imagine anything else that might force him not to have one.
