    Anyone in this forum watching Euroleague?

    I personally support Olympiacos BC ([​IMG]) and I think that this year if we become more "mature" in our style of play, we can win this tour.

    Also, I like how greek teams are very powerful, for example last year, there were two Greek teams in Final Four (Olympiacos and Panathinaikos), and this year Maroussi BC is joining the scene after winning both Panathinaikos and Partizan in Group E.

    What do you have to say?

    Last season Barcelona was undoubtedly the best team, with an impressive season almost unbeaten in the tournament. I watched Partizan and are a team with a future definitely.

    Real Madrid was the biggest let down, with the highest budget, signing a lot of players, Messina... Spending so much money for not being even amongst the top 4... well, they do the same with their football section anyway... Joking...

    Bullock is not at madrid anymore. A shame, I liked him.

    European clubs pay very well. For example, Navarro from Barcelona has a 15M€ 5 years deal.

    VICTORIOUS!

    When the duel of undefeated teams in Group C came to an end, Fenerbahce Ulker emerged victorious by handing defending champ Regal FC Barcelona the first loss of the season of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague regular season by 61-69 in Barcelona, Spain on Thursday night. It was a tight game throughout with constant lead changes in the final quarter, but the great defense of Fenerbahce allowed the guests to control the tempo of the game and keeping their cool at the end, managed to escape with a valuable win. The victory leaves Fenerbahce atop of Group C with a 3-0 tied with Montepaschi Siena, while Barca drops to 2-1. Roko Ukic led the winners with his 13 points and Marko Tomas added 12. For Barcelona, Pete Mickeal had 17 points, Juan Carlos Navarro 12, Jaka Lakovic 11 and Erazem Lorbek 10.

    Pete Mickeal moved in the lane for the first basket of the game but Marko Tomas' tip in for Fenerbahce Ulker tied the game soon, 2-2. Mickeal was on fire with a three and neither team missed its first offensive attempts when the scoreboard showed a 7-6. Gasper Vidmar's basket plus foul put Fenerbahce ahead for the first time, 7-8, but Juan Carlos Navarro fireworks turned the tides again. The fast pace of the game benefitted Ukic, who stepped up with four straight points to put a 9-12 and force Barca's timeout. The hosts had not pulled a single defensive board at that point and it was because Fenerbahce hardly missed any shots. In defense, the guests also forced turnovers of Barcelona and only Mickeal seemed to be active enough for the defending champs. Barca was clashing again and again against the defensive wall of the guests but Fenerbahce didn't take advantage of that as the score remained 11-14 in minute 8 and when Mickeal fed the alley-oop to Vazquez, it was a one-point game, 13-14, to end the first quarter.

    Lynn Greer and Mirsad Turkcan sparked a 0-4 run for the guests that was only stopped by Navarro from the line. Fast points on each side fell now to make it 18-22. Fenerbahce didn't let go of the lead thanks to the contribution of Oguz Savas and thanks to a smothring defense, Greer blasted a three that made it 18-27 for the largest lead of the game. Victor Sada had to think twice before driving to the rim, to get the first basket for a Barca point guard, and soon Sada himself scored again for the hosts for the 22-27. The run increased to 6-0 with Navarro to force the timeout of Fenerbahce now. Barcelona was still struggling against Fenerbahce's defense but at least Erazem Lorbek hit the jumper over the buzzer but Marko Tomas was the one now to keep the guests at a safe distance. The hosts had not managed to steal the ball once yet, and after a foul, Darjus Lavrinovic scored his first point from the line to leave it at 28-32 at the break.

    Vidmar opened the second half with free throws but when Vazquez slammed and received the foul from Lavrinovic for Barcelona, the arena seemed to come alive. Mickeal pulled the hosts within two points, as Barcelona's defense seemed to come together now and started working at full throttle. But again, when it looked like Barca would control the score, Fenerbahce found someone, Ukic this time, to maintain a safe distance. The hosts insisted on feeding the ball in the paint to the big men, but the defensive wall of the Turksih team was still there. Mickeal wasted another chance to tie the game by missing a free throw with a 36-37 but Navarro and Jaka Lakovic connected fast layups to finally make it 40-39 for Barcelona. With a steal and three to add, Lakovic emerged as the scorer that Barca needed in the final moments of the third quarter. Fenerbahce pressed hard in defense for the last plays and also got the last shot when Preldzic blasted a three from the corner on the buzzer to leave it all open for the last period, 45-44 after 30 minutes.

    Lakovic was still active for Barcelona with a layup while Tarence Kinsey replied fast for Fenerbahce. Mirsad Turkcan blasted a three to put the guests ahead again and Preldzic did the same thing for the 49-52 in a game that offered no mercy for neither side. Good ball circulation earned Barca players good options to shoot, but the ball didn't want to go in as expected (3 of 16 threes at that point for Barca), and it had to be through free throws that Mickeal kept the hosts at one point. The decisive moments of the game were arriving and despite good defense, Barca's problem with the defensive rebounds persisted, allowing Fenerbahce to create more offensive options. Vidmar missed to key frees and Lorbek had an answer with a long jumper and two more free throws for 55-54. The carrousel of free throws continued with Ukic and Lorbek until Tomas hit an important three for 57-60 with three minutes to go. Ukic insisted on the Barca rim and Mickeal could only hold the fort with two free throws. The game entered its last 80 second with 59-64 after Tomas' basket. Barca's timeout would have to decide the outcome of the game. Mickeal missed a layup and when Fenerbahce grabbed an unbelievable offensive rebound time was running out. Lakovic missed the three and when Turkcan hit one free throw for 61-65 it was clear that Fenerbahce would remain undefeated while handing the defending champ the first loss of the season.


    3/3
    Target : Final Four :)

    Fenerbahce Ülker became the competition's last undefeated team and extended its best start ever in the competition in front of a sellout crowd of 15,000 at the team's new homecourt, Sinan Erdem Arena in Istanbul, as the 2010-11 Turkish Airlines Euroleague reached Week 4 of the regular season with four battles between teams tied for first place in their groups.

    i watched the madrid barcelona semifinal, i thought it was a terrible basketball (but coming from a few weeks of nba playoff is tough).
    barcelona only gameplay plan is shooting 3es or some shit drive. madrid at least played a sensible pick and roll and posted up a few times.

    i'd say european basktball is not getting any better, probably due to all the best players being in the nba.

    Can't judge whole league by single game and your opinion would be different if you seen a final game today.
    Wonderful performance by olympiakos, gratz to greek fans if there is any here.

    I'm very proud of my team, we are the 3rd team ever to achieve a second consecutive victory of Euroleague. Again, like last year, we were the team with the lowest budget and the worse record (20-9) than the other teams, yet, we played great in both matches. The -17 (10-27) comeback from the first quarter reminds of last years -19 against CSKA, only last years was a lot more dramatic. :D
