We always seem to have a thread for our b-ball NT heading towards major tournaments and with Duda picking his squad for the qualifiers this summer, I figured it was time for the next one.

First off the squad..

bekovi: Miloš Teodosić (CSKA Moskva), Stefan Marković (Valensija), Milenko Tepić (Kahasol), Aleksandar Rašić (Lijetuvos Ritas), Nemanja Jaramaz (Partizan mt:s), Nemanja Nedović (Crvena zvezda Diva) Danilo Anđušić (Partizan mt:s);

krila: Ivan Paunić (Virtus Bolonja), Mladen Jeremić (Hemofarm), Marko Kešelj (Olimpijakos), Andreja Milutinović (Crvena zvezda Diva), Nemanja Bjelica (Kaha Laboral), Vladimir Lučić (Partizan mt:s), Novica Veličković (Real Madrid), Duško Savanović (Anadolu Efes), Zoran Erceg (Bešiktaš), Milan Mačvan (Makabi/Partizan mt:s), Dragan Labović (Krasnije Krilja);

centri: Nenad Krstić (CSKA Moskva), Kosta Perović (Barselona), Milovan Raković (Žalgiris), Miroslav Raduljica (Anadolu Efes/Partizan mt:s), Dejan Musli (Kaha Laboral), Mile Ilić (Crvena zvezda Diva).

Secondly our schedule..

15/8 Iceland - Serbia
18/8 Serbia - Montenegro
21/8 Slovakia - Serbia
24/8 Serbia - Estonia
27/8 Israel - Serbia
30/8 Serbia - Iceland
2/9 Montenegro - Serbia
5/9 Serbia - Slovakia
8/9 Estonia - Serbia
11/9 Serbia - Israel

Nice schedule, good chance to see some b-ball during the summer for those of us who will be there. :thumbsup:

Top 2 qualify as well as the 4 best third placed teams.

Now give us your full analysis DZ and other experts. :D I see a fair number of younger players there like Nedovic, Musli, Andjusic, Jaramaz, Milutinovic, Lucic. Also slightly older newcomers in Dabovic and Jeremic.

Who's missing from the list except for guys like Milicic?

Novica btw very important for Real towards the end of the season. Good news for our NT as last year we missed him a lot.

Teo always gives too much room..that's not a luck thing.

And how many wake up calls does it take? I don't think that every following sh!t display can just be interpreted as "a wake up call". :D
And somebody said we could have won a medal at the Olympics. :howler:

But no problem, as Dule (I think) would say, this will be a wake-up call for them. No really, from THIS game onwards we can expect huge changes. :D

But seriously - :wallbang:..I can't believe how this team has forgotten to play defence since the last WC they played. Absolutely amazing...
I don't think they don't care..
Why would you say Tanjevic is an idiot?

But honestly - very, very sad..our team is falling apart.
Boris is right - hopefully this serves as a wake up call and we learn from our mistakes..:howler:

It is hard to point a finger at something and say what is wrong, it just seems like everything is wrong.

p.s But as someone here said, it's a crying shame we didn't play at the Olympics. :D
If we qualify, Duda needs to swallow his pride and talk to Darko. This just isn't working.

With Darko and a healthy Novica we'd be a totally different team. But it's not going to happen..:(
Let's just hopefully qualify, forget this and get Novica and Darko back on board.
As I said, with Darko and Novica I'd be confident of a medal. It was an interesting statement from Dude, seems he hasn't closed the door on Darko and now even would like Darko to give him a call..
We are not even close to being medal contenders. Amazing how quickly people forget our last couple of displays.
Well, there goes that. :(
Read something crazy today, this is the first time since age 12 that Teodosic has not trained in the summer with a Serbian national team :eek: what a legend, he'll be back.
I've deleted a few posts that could lead to unnecessary trouble. Guys, please play nice. :thmbup:

Disappointed with the sh!t job you did, that's why he hasn't been around.

Face it, you've lost your touch, you were at the top and there is no other way left but DOWN.

Making it in the top 6 would be huge..
Duda je BOG. :worship:

I can't believe we just beat France with our C team minus Katic and Markovic. At one point even the commentators were reading out loudly the names of the players on the court and laughing in disbelief. :D

Lets just hope we qualify for the wc, these players deserve it.
Unfortunately, this is most likely the end for us.. :(
I think we will beat the Spaniards. This generation has a swagger about them in big games thus far. Nedovic and Bogdanovic have that "look" when they play versus larger countries. I think we will win, and win comfortably.
Personally, I can't see it happening, but ...

Iz tvojih usta u Bozije usi! :)

good that we got them, no matter the result it will show where we are in basketball.
We are playing with our C team, I don't think a loss will show anything. A win, however... :lick:
