Unbelievable!!!

Three (yes, THREE) of the five players chosen for the first team of the Euroleague tournament are Serbs!!
Jaric, Bodiroga and Tomasevic all made it to the Euroleague "all-star" team with the additions of Ednie (Beneton) and Djinobili (Kinder) - I'm quite sure I made spelling mistakes with these two names, but I am too excited to look for the right spelling now..:)

All in all, great job guys, you have made your fans, motherland and our basketball as a whole very, very proud!!



p.s. Geez, will our dominance ever end?? :D

........................................

U prvoj utakmici polufinala "plej-ofa" Zapadne konferencije amerièke profesionalne košarkaške lige (NBA) Sakramento je savladao Dalas sa 108:91 i poveo sa 1:0 u seriji u kojoj se igra do èetiri pobede (drugi meè jutros).

Prvi korak ka finalu "plej-ofa" Zapada "kraljevi" su napravili zahvaljujuæi jugoslovenskim asovima Vladi Divcu i Predragu Stojakoviæu. Prvi je bio neprikosnoven pod obruèima, dok je Stojakoviæ, sa 26 koševa, poneo epitet najefikasnijeg aktera susreta.

Divac je svih 35 minuta, koliko je proveo na terenu, odigrao briljantno. Uz 16 skokova i tri asistencije, postigao je i 18 koseva.

"Napravili smo dobar posao. To je, meðutim, tek poèetak jer serija je duga. Siguran sam da æe Dalas u narednoj utakmici igrati znatno bolje", pokušao je naš as da "spusti loptu na zemlju".

Stojakoviæ je, takoðe, imao svoje veèe. Pored 26 poena, jugoslovenski reprezentativac imao je i deset skokova i u potpunosti dobio duel sa najboljim igraèem Dalasa Dirkom Novickim.

Panatinaikos prvak Evrope

Košarkaši grckog Panatinaikosa pobedili su u finalnoj utakmici "fajnal fora" Evrolige italijanski Kinder sa 89:83.

Kinder, koji je bio domaæin finalnog turnira, sigurno je zapoceo mec u dvorani "Pala Malaguti" i prvo poluvreme rešio u svoju korist sa 48:40. U drugom delu utakmice "zeleni" iz Atine maestralno vodjeni od jugoslovenskog trenera Željka Obradovica naèinili su jedan od najvecih preokreta u istoriji finalnih utakmica i stigli do trece titule prvaka Evrope u poslednjih sedam godina.

Najbolju partiju u pobednièkoj ekipi pružili su Jugosloven Dejan Bodiroga, koji je zabeležio 21 poen, sedam skokova i èetiri asistencije i turski internacionalac Ibrahim Kutlaj, koji je dao 22 koša, uz pet skokova. U Kinderu su solidnu partiju pružili najefikasniji pojedinac utakmice Emanuel Ðinobili sa 27 poena i Slovenac Matijaž Smodiš sa 23, dok je jugoslovenski reprezentativac Marko Jaric zabeležio 11 poena, sedam skokova i pet asistencija.

Trijumfom u Bolonji Željko Obradovic postao je prvi trener kome je pošlo za rukom da se pet puta popne na krov Evrope, a ovo mu je bio osmi "fajnal-for" u poslednjih jedanaest godina, cime je dokazao da je trenutno najbolji trener na Starom kontinentu

RSF, to answer your question....

Kosarkasi Partizana pobedili su Crvenu zvezdu i u drugoj utakmici cetvrtfinala plej ofa 77:71 i plasirali se u polufinale.

Pred 4.hiljade gledalaca crno-beli su potpuno zasluzeno dosli do plasmana u medju 4 najbolje ekipe, jer su tokom celog meca imali prednost (najvecu +11).

Crveno-beli su uspevali u dva navrata da pridju na -1, ali je to bilo sve u subotu uvece od ponovo nekompletne ekipe (nije igrao Milutin Aleksic, dok je Koprivica samo u nekoliko navrata ulazio na parket).

Posle prvog poluvremena, Partizan je vodio rezultatom 41:38.U tom periodu najefikasniji su bili Ajzea Moris sa 15 i Vlado Scepanovic sa 13 poena.

U drugom delu meca, crno-beli uspevaju da dodju do najvece prednosti od +11, ali je mec u kakvu-takvu ravnotezu vratio Stevan Pekovic sa 2 uzastopne trojke.

U poslednjoj cetvrtini u koju se uslo sa 4 poena viska za Partizan (61:57), vidjeno je najmanje koseva,ali su crno-beli sto kvalitetom, sto serijom gresaka protivnika uspeli relativno mirno da privedu utakmicu kraju.

Najefikasniji u timu Partizana bili su Scepanovic sa 22, Vujanic sa 21 i Stanojevic sa 13 poena, dok je kod Crvene zvezde bolji od ostalih bio Moris sa 23 poena, dok je Pekovic postigao 18.

Geez, with Stanojevic and Vujanic playing for Partizan, it was almost like Zvezda "A" - Zvezda "B"..:(

If our management was a bit more capable(in other words, a bit less incompetent), we could have had Rakocevic, Vujanic, Topic, Stanojevic, Kuzmanovic and Radmanovic in our team..

Not to mention Jaric and Tomasevic..:mad:

We could have ruled for years to come....:(

Oooh, that..
Well that seems to be the traditional way of doing it in Serbian journalism, might seem odd, but I would like to see some some eldlerly citizen reading Serbian or Cro papers read out those names in original, if he hadn't heard about those players earlier..

Anyway, San Antonio leading against the Lakers, I hope they could at least win this one so the Lakers have to play an extra game..:)

sure, but as soon as you misspell someone's name in an official document it's not the same person, also pronounciation of different words, therefore names too, varies from region to region, so spelling them in accordance to pronounciation is somewhat misleading. (Is it 'Grent' or 'Grant' like we would say here in NZ for example?)

anyways, it just cracks me up.

no offence :)

Well, I know that's true, that's why I say Zvezda even though I am an "ijekavicar" (since there is no Zvijezda Beograd), however then look at names of countries - shouldn't you be yelling out to the world: "hey, we are Hrvatska not Croatia?"
The English language is full of such cases:
Belgrade instead of Beograd, Moscow instead of MOCKBA (I might have got it wrong too, though:)), Munich instead of Munchen (with the umlaut above the 'u')..You could argue these are not the same countries or cities anymore.
English is particularly bad since they seem to "adapt" every name to suit them, for example Schumachers name is not Michael as in "Majkl" but "Mihael" instead, but the English seem to ignore that..

But yeah, there are different ways of looking at it...

Pi Dzej Braun..:D :D :D

In one of the few NBA games I manged to see this year, I saw Radmanovic play and I have to say the guy is a very good player ecspecialy when you look at his age. I don't know if he just had a good day but he looks like a future star to me.

GO NEW JERSEY.....or should I say Team Kidd. :)

i've seen him play a few times, he's had a few good games, but he needs alot of work. makes too many turnovers, is a hot and cold shooter, and is not very active away from the ball. the biggest problem i noticed is that being such a good 3 point shooter, i was surprised at how bad he was at shooting free throws. good potential, but i don't think seattle is th right place for him.

oh ok...then I must have seen him in one of those good games. :D

He had something like 5-5 three pointers in the first half.:eek:
yup, he did that in this year's playoffs against SA...that was his BEST game in the NBA so far.
