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.

All up to how Exum plays, as far as the Australians having a chance.

You're the better team.
Seems like the match has been delayed?

Not sure but could be because China and Canada went to overtime.
It's started for me.

So basically you're telling me we're playing a one-man team for the second day in a row Stank?
There's that athleticism :eek: - He has Russel Westbrook quickness when he comes off picks or after crossovers. You blink and he's already at the rim - gonna be a test for your perimeter defenders.

They went to triple overtime, yes
That's it, we're getting into this. :thumbsup:
Legendary Zeljko Obradovic in the stands. Disgusted by a ref call. :howler:
Some dodgy calls tbf.
Need to run some more pick and rolls
Micic warming up now! :thumbsup:
You're doing a much better job closing the lane for Exum - Australia has no answer if that's gonna continue the rest of the night.

Micic has so much basketball IQ for a 19 year old.
Micic > Exum, brains over athleticism. :proud:
Exum is trying too hard. Although I guess he can't be blamed that much cause his team goes as he goes.

But you can see it's affecting him in terms or trying to do too much.

Micic is a PNR master. If he can improve his pull up shot off the dribble, he'll be brilliant.
+7 at HT. Tough start to the game, 7-0 run for the Aussies. But like Stanko said, as soon as we closed down the lanes for Exum we gained control over the game. Micic seems to be in a different class compared to his teammates. Good call by Duda to add him to the senior squad. :thumbsup:
Man he's so quick.
No idea why you'd take Micic away from the high pick and roll action.

He's dominate whenever he was put there.
Damn, Novak, you schmuck.
FINALLY that 3! Andric!

That Aussie kid Naar looks like a future accountant.
Wow, wtf.

Brainfart after brainfart - amazing. And you got off the hook lucky, this should have been atleast a tied game now.

Micic with 2 huge turnovers, but that guy who walked in the inbounds, seriously :palm:
