Imho he is the best 18yo European since Kukoc.

He is one of the best players of the best team in Europe. And he just turned 18. Rubio, Gasols ,Milicic didn't reach that level at 18 and Doncic leads Real Madrid. By it self is amazing. Imagine Fultzeading leading the celtics to the final

Fener-Olympiacos is the final.

They play in Istanbul, plan A is Fener wins, plan B Olympiacos wins and they all get imprisoned as Gulenist conspirators.

I ve learned to respect olimpiacos in F4s but fener looked scary. Their defence crushed bones against real and I don't know what olimpiacos a much less offensively gifted team than real can handle this.. I really hope they do though

Yesterday, euro games were much more enjoying than the NBA one. Great show by to fanatic greek squad, beating a stronger team in CSKA. Spanulis was once more the man in the clutch. And yes surprisingly, Fener was dominating Real from the start. Great game ahead of us on sunday. Looking at the teams yesterday I think that they would all be in the top 20/25 in the NBA. They could beat more teams than just the bottom feeders.

I think fener are the heavy favourites. Deeper roster, home court advantage, Obradovic on the bench..... But olimpiacos has done it defore. The euroleague.tv commentator called the the greatest comeback team. And the have Spanoulis one of the clutchiest players ever. His 3p to take the lead made history...

Obradovic will always be Olympiakos' daddy.

Suck one Spanoulis!

This Euroleague ended on a high Serbian note. Head coach Obradović (Euro Pop) and Feners 2 finals top scorers Kalinić and Bogdanović are Serbians. Sac stash Bogdanović will now surely leave for the NBA giving them a nice young core with 5th and 10th pick, Hield, WCS and Skal. Kalinić looks like he could guard NBA players while also having good BBIQ and even some shot at hiting the three, definitely a top 450 player in the world.

Teodosic was also very good on the semi considering he was injured the last month.

But you are right about Obradovic. TBH i don't like him but his resume is impressive! He's been to 16-17 final4 , won 9 of them with 5 different teams and for 3 of those teams was their first euroleague win.
We need a word ro describe him cause "succesfull" is not enough.

I was impressed by Udoh. He did everything. He scored, he rebounded, he passed the ball, he blocked ... he even guarded Spanoulis on the 3p line succesfully. A 6.10 guy!

Obradovićs resume is simly stunning. He is like a basketball player whisperer. :)
As for Ekpe, he was nothing short of amazing in the F4. Switching 1/5, hitting short jumpers, diming guys up, protecting the rim and cleaning the glass. It was like he played a mini Bill Russell role. Great option for a team looking for a legit defending small ball 5.

I'm a bit late for this, but Real Madrid's PG, Sergio Llull was nominated Euroleague's MVP

Here's a clip from the official website

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ATQZrPkOBo

Llull is 29 yo, he was picked by the Nuggets at #34 in 2009, but his rights were bought off by the Rockets. I could be wrong, but afair he never played in the NBA.
