Yeah, Krle and Micov are most likely out too with injuries but I think they'll play the CG and Israel games because we will need them.

Without them it will probably be:

PG-Teodosic, Nedovic
SG-Rasic,Andjusic,Tepic
SF-Bjelica,Keselj
PF-Erceg,Macvan, Savanovic
C-Musli,Stimac

What can you guys tell me about Andjusic, Erceg, Musli, and Stimac?

Also, what's up with Raduljica and Rakovic once again not being a part of the team?

Andjusic is really good shooter and one of our most promising shooting guards. Erceg is a solid big man, smart player that knows how to score and can rebound. Musli was supposed to be the next Pau Gasol but after he left Serbia he sat on a bench for 2 years and suffered through injuries, this year he returned to Serbia and played well, he's still young and inexperienced so i'm not sure what we can expect from him in the qualifiers. Stimac like Musli is young and inexperienced at this level but hes coming off a great season in Turkey and is an absolute beast on the boards, rebounding is something that we lacked last time around.

Rakovic and Raduljica would rather go on vacation than play:rolleyes:

Our best big young man is Ristic
Then Musli was supposed to be the next big thing people were talking about him since he was 13

The rest of the players you mentioned are pretty average

Radujlica is a good offensive player but he's horrendous on defense especially against athletic players. Same with most of our current big men except milcic and Musli is a good shot blocker

Erceg was a really talented player big hype but never lived up to it

Besides Teo and Krle we don't really have any star quality in our team and most of these guys are not very motivated hence why so many failed to live up to their full potential

Ristic is 17 that's way to early to judge anything, do you know how dominant Musli was at 17? a lot more so than Ristic currently is.

Erceg is playing for CSKA which is the top team in Europe so I really don't know how he never lived up to hype :confused: he was never even hyped to begin with.

Ristic is ranked #2 athlete in his generation
He's def one of the most talented and Musli was more dominant because his physical nature was far more advanced than any other player in his he group at that time.
Ristic has all the mechanisms to be a great player. If you see how he moves with and without the ball and his inside scoring is just beautiful
Definitely a kid I am looking forward to seeing play in the future

Not to mention that while we were undefeated in our prep matches, our captain and probably best play - Krstic - didn't even play. He's expected to be back and ready to go come the qualifiers.

Yeah, shouldn't be much of a problem with Krstic back now.

You guys should qualify comfortably, Kuzmic leaving the team is a big loss but with Teletovic and the really solid American you have a good team.

The Turkey game:

Tune in for the 4th quarter to watch the Teodosic show and Lucic throw down a few sick dunks.

110% we qualify first even if our players played with one hand behind back


Edit: I swear I'm high as **** today I don't even smoke the ganja

Don't forget Nihad Dedovic, he's been excellent in preparations. ;)

Btw, thanks for the responses guys. I'm surprised you didn't qualify automatically into EC 2013.

Dedovic is good lacks a couple characteristics to take him to next level

We should get wild card every time we don't automatically qualify
I mean look at us we're just that good ;)
