FUĆKAŠ 12 POBJEDA U NIZU: Rockets Center Yao Ming out for a season...



TOP 10 NBA PLAYS 25-02-2008
EUROLEAGUE NEWS 26-02-2008


NCAA @ NASN se ne propušta, pogotovo kada igraju Kansas State & Texas.

Treći strijelac NCAA, PF K-Statea Michael Beasley, imao je težak zadatak pred Kerrom i McHaleom dokazati da all that Draft buzz around him is not a fluke.

NAGRADNA IGRA: "ZAŠTO VOLIM KOŠARKU?"


Freshman kojega dobar dio NBA scouta s pravom uspoređuje s legendarnim ljevakom Waymaneom Tisdaelom, u porazu je svoje ekipe zabilježio 11. NCAA utakmicu sa 30+ poena...

NBA scouti su odšetali iz K-Statea s mnogim plusevima na njegovom kontu u svojim bilježnicama. Nažalost, svoje je Draft izglede neozbiljnim nastupom (šut: 0-14) ozbiljno narušio 6'5'' Bill Walker...



WAYMAN TISDALE, ex-NBA POWER FORWARD: "WAY UP"...


Vrijedi spomenuti da NCAA klupe i rosteri vrve ex-NBA imenima, te sinovima poznatih igrača. Tako je na ovoj utakmici svoju minutažu solidno odradio Ron Anderson, imenjak SVOJEG NBA OCA...

Vezano na istu temu, u breaku je u jednom od kadrova prikazan 19-togodišnji Luke Sikma, perspektivno krilo Portland Pilotsa, sin slavnog NBA oca Jacka. Da, onoga koji je pri kraju karijere samo čekao povratnu loptu na trici...

Pitam se da li je ex-centar Bucksa svojevremeno prilikom odabira imena sinu konzultirao frontcourt suparnika iz Celticsa, BIlla Waltona, koji je sinu također dao ime Luuuuke...

SHELDEN WILLIAMS MIX


The Bulls came out & dismantled the young Nets, that featured a rookie by the name of Derrick Coleman, & a foreign recruit by the name of Drazen Petrovic (R.I.P).

Coleman, for all of his gifts, could've, in the words of C. Barkley: "been one of the Greatest, if not "THE" Greatest Power Forward "EVER".." This guy was 6'10, a lefty, which made it difficult to guard him.

NAGRADNA IGRA: "ZAŠTO VOLIM KOŠARKU?"


He had a game with his back to the glass, he could handle the rock like a guard. He could take you off the dribble in either direction & shoot it from 15 ft & out. He was the real deal..



ZAGREB vs ZVEZDA 84:82 - 4th QUOTER HIGHLIGHTS: Hrvoje Kovačević scores 9 points and takes down FOUR offensive boards (along with TWO on defensive end) in just 13 MINUTES of court action!


Unfortunately, he seemed to love the lifestyle that being an NBA player afforded him, more than the game itself, which led to his demise.

He simply lacked the discipline & dedication to the game to excel. Not to mention his attitude was a lot like many of player in today's NBA...LOUSY!!

Petrovic, like Reggie Miller & like Rip Hamilton is today, was a "Textbook" shooter of the screens.

But unlike those guys, if things bogged down, he'd put it on the floor & "STRONGLY" take you to the rack.

Neke od stvari koje sam ostao dužan posljednjih dana...

Shammgod u Cedeviti. Marketinški nedvojbeno zanimljivo ime koje će dovesti u Podsused barem nekoliko stotina navijača više. Koliko može Shammgod na terenu? Vidjeti ćemo. Moja očekivanja su da je i dalje odličan dribler s još istančanijim feelingom za asitenciju. Šut? Zbog toga i tako nije doveden, Cedevita na distanci ima Milačića, Rimca i Dujmovića. Enigmom ostaje zašto je proveo cijelo jedno desetljeće igrajući po Poljskoj i Aziji...U svakom slučaju probati ću ga dobiti za interview, već znate mene...

MALIK ALLEN NETS DAYS MIX


Košarka u medijima - What's happening? Vjerojatno se narod razočarao u raspodjelu ulaznica za nogometno EP, pa su se mediji još više okrenuli "sporednim" sportovima poput "kraljice sportova". Vratimo se par tjedana unazad: prvo je Jutarnji pokrenuo nagradnu igru "Zašto volim NBA?", zatim je HRT iz vjetrom ispražnjenog Doma Dražena Petrovića prenosio cro-derby NLB lige, da bi šlag na košarkašku tortu u veljači došao izborom Zorana Čuture za najboljeg hrvatskog sportskog novinara. Tempus fugit, i po x-ti put bih poručio kolegama koji su se 'usidrili u Maksimiru da dignu sidru i za dobrobit hrvatskog sporta & društva kruh otiđu zaraditi negdje drugdje.

NBA Trade Deadline. Većina contendera se još više pojačala pod košem. Jučer su Spursi jednostavno morali odgovoriti Lakersima & Sunsima, te su doveli veterana Kurta Thomasa. Moja ocjena tog tradea je da se radi o čistom kozmetičkom krpanju, Kurt Thomas nije lijek za Shaqa & Gasola anymore. Noćas je GM Cavaliersa Danny Ferry, koji je inače kao student Dukea nastupao na Univerzijadi u Zagrebu 1987., 'pet do dvanaest povukao prekidač i zgasio svjetlo na istoku. Cavsi su dovođenjem Big Bena, pa makar i uz cijenu pola rostera, sada glavni favorit za ponovno osvajanje Istoka i jedina istočna ekipa koja se može nositi s gorostasnim zapadnim contenderima. Mark this words...

Kidd & Nowitzki? Moram priznati da su mnoge od mojih misli nastale tijekom telefonske konverzacije s kolegom T-Pakracom iz magazina "Superkošarka". To što izlazimo jednom mjesečno ne znači da ne pratimo što se događa all the time. Anyway, naša je ocjena da Kiddov povratak u Dallas jednostavno nije u rangu ostalih tradeova koji su se dogodili, te da će u nevjerojatno jakoj konstalaciji snaga na Zapadu kombinacija Kidd & Nowitzki biti dostatna tek za ulazak u doigravanje. Ako ne vjerujete, provjerite tko sve nastupa na zapadu. BTW, kolega Pakrac me je podsjetio da je coach Avery Johnson nakon prošlogodišnjeg doigravanja zamolio Cubana da razmijeni MVP-a kako bi otišli korak dalje, ali su Mavsi ipak Cubanovi, a on je dugogodišnji prijatelj s Dirkom...

Go figure it. U svakom slučaju na ovom komunikacijskom kanalu sutra počinje nagradna igra "Zašto volim Košarku?".
Propozicije i atraktivne nagrade su u pripremi...

EASTERN STATEMENT: King James crowned NBA All Star MVP for the second time...



ONE FOR THE HISTORY: LeBron on Dirk, All Star Game 2008. Explanation Point. Jasna poruka cro-reprezentativcima kako se napada njemački koš kada pod njim stoji MVP NBA lige.

When the NBA All-Star Game had reached the cusp of winning and losing, LeBron James stopped for a fleeting moment and momentarily considered the path of least resistance.

Perhaps with Amare Stoudemire defending him, James could simply shoot one more jumper Sunday night. The clock had just dipped inside the final minute, the ball was in his hands and the ultimate truth was that it wouldn't be long until those Western stars would be running back to stacked teams, until the Boston Celtics and Detroit Pistons would return East with the thickest rosters in the conference.

It wouldn't be long until James was fighting those long odds with the Cleveland Cavaliers again and perhaps everyone should understand how that shapes his thinking, how that sharpens his greatness. No, LeBron James doesn't do the path of least resistance.

BETTER BELIEVE IT: FIRST EVER CROATIAN NBA PORTAL!!


Yes, maybe LeBron James could've let one more long jumper go, but the All-Star Game was tied, and James was probing with the ball across midcourt with the deep-seeded knowledge that no one in the game is harder to stop as a pure physical phenomenon. It takes profound basketball courage to step into his way, and James kept going now, kept that dribble drive alive and a thought flashed to his mind in the moment with Tim Duncan and Dirk Nowitzki on the move.

"When I (saw) those bigs coming, I didn't want to lay the ball up," James said.


So, he dribbled hard and gathered himself and it was clear that no one had the stomach to stop James when he wanted to make the East's 134-128 victory his own. Stoudemire had been left in his wake, Duncan stopped short and Nowitzki ducked out of the way and James rising and rising and rising until he pushed Nowitzki down with his left hand and thundered the ball through the rim with his right.

It wouldn't be long until these pulsating final minutes of this fabulous All-Star Game ultimately belonged to the genius of its Most Valuable Player with 27 points, nine assists and eight rebounds. It wouldn't be long until commissioner David Stern passed him his second trophy at 23 years old, and the world would see who the star of stars was again at New Orleans Arena.

"LeBron is a freight train when he goes to that basket," West coach Byron Scott sighed. "He's so big, and so strong – so quick and so powerful. It's hard to stop him when he gets the momentum going like that."


His singular peer on the planet, Kobe Bryant, made a brief appearance for the West and quickly retired to the bench with his busted up pinkie. When the All-Star Game traded foolery in the fourth quarter, James had the final minutes on a yo-yo. He started the night tossing lob dunks to Dwight Howard and turned to sharp-shooting Ray Allen in the fourth. In a season when the Western Conference has never been so superior, the great equalizer turned out to be James, who makes a living doing more with less in Cleveland.

In the flurry of trades that have changed the landscape of the league, James delivered an unmistakable message: "When the postseason comes, you've got to come get it from us."


What James means is this: You've got to come get it from me. Everyone else is getting new toys with the trade deadline approaching Thursday, but it looks like James is stuck with his perpetually pedestrian supporting cast in Cleveland. Yes, the Cavaliers made it to the NBA Finals a year ago, but everyone understands there was an element of smoke and mirrors, that standing pat in the Eastern Conference promised to be perilous with the transformation in Boston and with tweaks in Detroit.

HE WILL CAUSE B-BALL RULES CHANGE: FIRST EVER KENNY GEORGE MIX!!


Over the summer, LeBron, Bryant and Jason Kidd were grumbling teammates with Team USA. Bryant wanted out of Los Angeles. Kidd wanted a trade to Cleveland. And James just wanted someone to share the burden with him. Well, the two point guards whom Cleveland GM Danny Ferry had tried to obtain for two years – Kidd and Mike Bibby – are on the way to Dallas and Atlanta.

When those stars left Las Vegas over the summer, they talked glumly about returning to teams with unworthy talent. Now, James leaves New Orleans and nothing's changed in Cleveland. Ferry has tried tirelessly to find him a point guard, but the Cavaliers have uninspired young talent and veteran contracts that won't expire for two years, leaving little value now.

When most of his All-Star pals are making runs with new teams and new toys, it's back to reality for LeBron James. There are so many better teams in the NBA now, but it gets harder and harder to make the case that there's a better player.



ABS EXCLUSIVE - YINKA DARE INTERVIEW 1993 W/ ERICA COLLINS: Yinka enabled me to do this interview before any major news networks to add to my broadcast tape portfolio. A dear friend who is missed went on to play for the NJ Nets NBA and passed away in January 2004 at age of 32.


In his job, James is forever required to take the hard road to victory and that is so much of the reason he had the ball in the final moments Sunday night, with an improbable victory over the West within reach. James looked at those two 7-footers and another just two inches shy, and understood that he was going to the rim, that he was going hard and daring someone to stop him. Once again, LeBron James doesn't do the path of least resistance.

ALL STAR SUNDAY @ NEW ORLEANS: Prijenos LIVE na OBN-u (01.15)...



MICHAEL JORDAN 1997. - FIRST GAME vs SHAQ & KOBE LAKERS, 30 PTS: MJ će danas u New Orleansu proslaviti 45. rođendan, a njegov suigrač Toni Kukoč će gostovati kod Aleksandra Stankovića...


If I remember correctly, I believe MJ had one of his all-night-golf outings before this game which was one reason why his shot might have eluded him this night. This game was interesting in that MJ was meeting Shaq in LA for the first time. On a side note, the appetizer was a very young and skinny Kobe Bryant who was given 10 minutes in his first ever game against his idol. And as MJ greeted a rookie Shaq in Orlando in their first meeting with a block, MJ welcomed the future star to a modest dunk in their very first matchup (the 2nd meeting is also uploaded on my channel).

But the story of the game was the game. The Bulls were taken aback by an amazing night from Van Exel and Shaq and fell behind by 22 at the half. MJ's shot was only visible at the end of the half which was probably why the Bulls didn't drop by 30.

NEDJELJOM U DVA (HRT1, 14.00 CET): Gost emisije je proslavljeni hrvatski košarkaš Toni Kukoč. Govorit će o tome što radi danas u sportskoj mirovini, prisjetiti se košarkaških dana sa Jordanom i Rodmanom te objasniti zašto je u toku karijere bio nezadovoljan tretmanom hrvatskih novinara. Zašto predsjednik Tuđman nije zvao Kukoča na dizanje zastave u Kninu te kako je bilo na oproštaju Vlade Divca u Beogradu, čut ćemo u ovoj emisiji.


In the 2nd half, MJ became what he would call "The Utility Man". He pled all the holes and did the dirty work - hustling on defense, setting screens, passing to the hot man etc. Down 18 points in the 4th, Kukoc and Pip stepped up and stood besides MJ's leadership and brought the game to OT. And while MJ's shot was still MIA, he drilled the nail-in-coffin free throws to seal the game. This was one of the most amazing comebacks ever and one reason why the Bulls were the Bulls.

TOP 10 PLAYS ROOKIES vs SOPHOMORES


Magic je imao Scotta, Bird Aingea, Jordan Paxona...

Svaki veliki igrač imao je weak side shootera da mu olakša when the defence colapses up on him. LeBron ima Daniela Gibsona, kojemu je ovo tek DRUGA sezona.

32MIN: 11.6pts/2.6ast/2.5reb/FGs45.7%/3FGs46.7%


Noćas je Gibson ostavio još jedan od svojih tragova u Ligi gdje igrači ispod 190cm nikako nisu dugovječni. Tri loše utakmice i na putu je zamjena iz NBDL-a.



Šutirajući 11-20 za tricu, te postigavši čak 33 poena Gibson je odveo igrače druge NBA sezone ("sophomores") do 6. uzastopne pobjede nad igračima prve godine ("rookies"). VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS

Nisu izostale ovacije iz publike, a King James se pozabavio proročanstvom da će Gibson danas osvojiti i prestižno all star natjecanje u tricama ("three-point shootout")...

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us


Nimalo lako jer će mu na putu do trona stajati Rip Hamilton, Jason Kapono, Steve Nash, prošlogodišnji prvak Dirk Nowitzki, te nepogrešivi Peja Stojaković. Kakva konkurencija, svaka čast...

Prestižno će biti u natjecanje u zakucavanjima koje bi vrlo lako moglo ući u povijest. Prošlogodišnji prvak Gerald Green, Rudy Gay, Dwight Howard & Jamario Moon su apsolutna garancija atrakcije & neviđenoga...



NBA je uložila dodatan napor kako bi sakupila ova imena na jednome mjestu u jednom trenutku za vječnost, za što zaslužuje ekstra bodove na svoj konto.

Nadamo se da te iste bodove svojim uobičajenim razmaženim pristupom nedjeljnoj utakmici neće olako potrošiti NBA zvijezde i zvjezdice...

EUROLEAGUE TOP 16/WEEK I MVP: LYNN GREER
BARACK OBAMA HIGHLIGHTS..



EUROLEAGUE PLAYOFF
TOP 16: Week 1 Review


The inevitable split in the group standings after the first week of the Top 16 has left an even amount of winners and losers, but perhaps some of each are moreso than others. Defense was certainly the name of the game in the new round, as two of the four new groups saw no team score more than 74 points.

That was the case in Group D, where two home winners prevailed, one with a record. Montepaschi dominated Partizan 71-54 at home in Siena, Italy by setting a new, single-game team steals record with 29. Montepaschi also owned the previous record, 27, dating to February of 2003. Bootsy Thornton had 8 steals himself, while Ksystof Larvinovic scored 18 points.


Nakon što smo prebrojili Vaše cijenjene glasove ustanovili smo da bi na naše košarkaške utakmice i dalje trebala servisirati 3 SUCA (54,6% glasova), koji bi trebali biti OZUČENI (66,7% glasova), a na terenu bi najpoželjnija bila situacija sa DVA STRANCA (42,3% glasova). Zašto bi naši euroligaški suci gledali neku tamo NCAA? E pa zato draga gospodo u sivom jer se tamo osobna greška gostujućem igraču pred punom dvoranom u zadnjoj minuti utakmice ne svira dok prilično čvrsto (da ne kažem grubo) ne prizemlji igrača domaće momčadi. Nema suvišnog svirkanja i cijepanja igre, jer se igra zove Košarka, it's as simple as that, a ne free style Zviždukanje kad god Vam se svidi. Možete se smijati na cijelu ovu priču, ali radi se o jednom od osnovih razloga zašto se David Stern nasmijao na prijedlog da Euroliga postane 7. NBA divizija. Ne želi pročitati europsko poglavlje priče o Timu Donaghyu...

Group D's other winnner was another attention-getter, as Efes Pilsen plowed past defending champ Panathinaikos 74-64 as Drew Nicholas exploded for 29 points. The other low-scoring home winners came in Group G, but that didn't mean it lacked for fireworks, not with both games decided by a total of 3 points.

In one of the greatest escapes in Euroleague history, CSKA Moscow rallied from 11 points behind with under 3 minutes left to see Trajan Langdon's three-pointer on the buzzer beat Lottomatica Roma 72-71 in the Russian capital. Langdon led CSKA with 22 points.

Meanwhile, after head coach Dusko Ivanovic was fired just hours before gametime, AXA F.C. Barcelona defeated Unicaja 64-62 as Jaka Lakovic scored 14 points. Scoring was easier to come by as a pair of road winners took the quick upper hand in Group E.

Fenerbahce Ulker sprung a major surprise by downing Aris TT Bank on the road in Greece, 88-96. Will Solomon starred with 23 points, but a quartet of young big men - Emir Preldzic, Semih Erden, Oguz Savas and Omer Asik - combined for 41 points on 14-for-20 two-point shooting.

Meanwhile, always-dangerous Tau Ceramica proved so again by silencing Lietuvos Rytas 81-84 on the road as Tiago Splitter had 17 points. Tau survived a 38-23 disadvantage in rebounding by forcing 17 turnovers on L. Rytas. And finally, in Group F, home and road winners split two games.

Maccabi Elite Tel Aviv racked up an all-important 67-75 victory against Olympiacos in Greece to spoil the Euroleague bench debut of Panagiotis Giannakis with the Reds. MVP for January Terrence Morris continued strong with 16 points and 11 rebounds for Maccabi, which lost another big man, Marcus Fizer, early in the game to injury.

Real Madrid had to sweat out its home opener until the closing seconds before shaking off Zalgiris 88-85. Charles Smith bracketed an 11-0 takeover run early in the final quarter with a pair of three-point shots while Felipe Reyes and Louis Bullock scored 17 each for Madrid.

MISTER 3D: Kidd prilično blizu povratku u Cubanove Dallas Maverickse...



U OČEKIVANJU 100-TOG "TRIPLE-DOUBLEA" - JASON KIDD


KIDD TRADE - LATEST UPDATE:
Devean George's contract got in the way


Nakon skoro 2 mjeseca šaputanja na mobitel u hodnicima Meadowlandsa izgleda da je došlo vrijeme da se krene za Jasona Kidda.

Najsvestraniji play današnjice, od milja poznatiji kao Mr.3D je prema ESPN-ovim 95+% vjerodostojnim izorima jako blizu povratka na prvu postaju svoje pro-karijere.

Lets Rewind: nakon što su Mavericksi draftirali talentiranog playmakera sveučilišta California, ovaj je podijelio rookie of the year nagradu s Grant Hillom 1995. totalno transformiravši igru jedne od najgorih ekipa svih vremena.



Ipak, nakon samo sezone i pol u pre-Cuban Mavsima Jason se zakačio sa suigračima Jim Jacksonom i Jamaalom Mashburnom oko stasa i glasa pjevačice Tony Braxton.

To je bilo dovoljno beskompromisnom managementu teksaškog kluba da ga razmijeni u Phoenix Sunse, u blockbuster dealu koji je totalno transformirao rostere Mavsa & Sunsa.

LINKSFLASH: First of all, Duško Ivanović više nije trener Barcelone, nadamo se da će Kasu biti lakše barem na treninzima ma tko bio nasljednik...Slavnića je na klupi Srbije naslijedio Dušan Ivković, a čovjek koji ga je doveo sada se otvoreno pita koja je svrha NLB lige...NBA MULLING IDEA OF FIVE-TEAM EXPANSION IN EUROPE, no čak 53% online čitatelja Sports Illustrateda smatra da to nije dobra ideja...ACO: "Čeka li me sada još i zatvor?? U rukama držim DVD s edukativnim materijalom sa sudačkog seminara"...Last but not the least - jedan od glavnih headlinea u današnjem izdanju Večernjaka: "Natašina tužba protiv Gordana utišla u zastaru"...


U prvoj sezoni Kidd je surađujući s Rexom Chapmanom odveo Sunse deep in the play offs. No unatoč solidnim partijma u regularnim sezonama ta ekipa Sunsa nikada nije preplivala novomilenijske Shaq & Kobe Lakerse.

GINOBILI DROPS 46 ON LeBRON'S CAVs


Kidd je razmijenjen u Netse za Stephona Marburya. Obje ekipe su instantly profitirale, a Jason je u Netsima srušio 99% rekorda relacijski vezanih za kategoriju "triple double".

Ipak, godine su prošle, i Kidd je nakon nekoliko uspješnih sezona nastupanja na TOP 10 akcija regularne sezone uz Jeffersona & Cartera, uz par privatnih nesuglasica izvan terena, dočekao igračku "mirovinu".

Sada, očajan zbog iznenadne nove power konstalacije na zapadu, prebogati vlasnik Mavsa Marc Cuban je instantno odlučio razriješiti roster i kesu. Iako nije igrač želi i on ući u povijest, unatoč učestalim nesuglasicama sa sucima...



Osobnog sam mišljenja da je Cuban dao previše za playa koji ima još koju sezonu ispred sebe. Inicijalni marketinški efekt naravno neće izostati, TV ratingsi Mavsa će iznenada porasti sky high.

Dallas sending 24-year-old point guard Devin Harris, veteran swingman Jerry Stackhouse, the expiring contracts of center DeSagana Diop and swingman Devean George and guard Maurice Ager to New Jersey for Kidd and forward Malik Allen. - source: ESPN


Na terenu, Kidd će donekle napraviti čuda vs Steve Nash, ali tko će čuvati Stoudemirea i SHAQ-a...Dampier? MVP Nowitzki je na svojem maksimumu već nekoliko sezona...

Ako je imalo pametan, Cuban će desperately tražiti pojačanje pod košem...treba mu visoki "banger" ala Eddy Curry koji može barem na 20-25 minuta uštopati SHAQ-a...

MICHAEL JORDAN 1997: 2nd Game vs. Shaq & Kobe Lakers, 27pts...


This 2nd meeting between MJ and Shaq's Lakers somewhat lost its luster due to Shaq being grounded from an injury. With the Bulls playing their 3rd road game in 4 nights, no one but MJ and Pip bothered to show up.

MJ's crystal ball "words of wisdom" before the game should have been heeded but the energy just wasn't there. MJ, however, was his usual self with his intensity and defense - even though at 10-24, his shot took a rare night off by his standards - especially with him shooting a torrid 58.4% in his last 8 games leading up to this one.



TOP 10 NBA AKCIJA 12-02-2008
EUROLEAGUE NEWS 13-02-2008


But the main development was that Elden Campbell did his best Shaq impersonation and allowed the feisty Lakers to control the game this night. On a side note, it was pure entertainment watching a young Kobe Bryant displaying his zest in playing against his idol for the 2nd time in his career (the 1st game is also uploaded on my channel).

WEBBER WARRIOR NOTES: He is REALLY out of shape. Can't move - which was to be expected - but he doesn't appear to have any energy at all. Couldn't move anyone out of the paint and he looks lost on the court..



IT'S AMAZING - DWIGHT HOWARD DUNK CONTEST PREVIEW: Dwight trying some dunks for the upcoming contest on saturday. This video was posted by Matt Watson on aol sports fanhouse.

And while the game was not the grand show it was supposed to be with Shaq out of the picture, MJ's footwork and cool fades were as satisfying as ever. And, of course, the customary 'move of the night' belonged to its rightful owner.

CANDACE PARKER, MOVE OVER: Brittney Griner is out there DUNKING...



HIGH SCHOOL GIRL DUNKER CONTINUES TO DOMINATE
TOP 10 NBA AKCIJA 11-02-2008
EUROLEAGUE NEWS 12-02-2008
EUROLEAGUE: JAMES WHITE DUNK


REMEBER THE NAME..
Could 6'8" Brittney Griner play in the NBA?

For those of you in the dark, Brittney Griner is a 16 year-old junior in Houston, Texas who leads the area in scoring, blocked shots, dunks, and being tall. She stands 6'8" (for now), wears a size 18 men's sneaker, and has exploded onto the high school basketball -- and YouTube -- scene over the past year.

LINKFLASH: A basket full of surprises for an American player in Iran


Last night, Griner posted 29 points, 13 rebounds, 11 shots and nine assists in helping her Nimitz High School to a first round playoff win over rival Westside High School. On top of that, she dunked twice. Hard.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Which brings us to our question: Could Brittney Griner one day play in the NBA?

She seems to have some of the tools. She's 6'8" and growing, is just 16 and, from the limited footage that I've seen of her, looks pretty quick on her feet and comfortable with the ball. With a few solid years of coaching, you'd have to at least consider it a possibility, right?

Well, no. And here's why: While Griner's 6'8" frame might make her the swat-blocking Gheorge Muresan of Texas women's high school basketball, it would mean nothing in the NBA. Can you imagine her trying to defend someone as athletic and strong as Rudy Gay or Andre Iguodala? It would be impossible.

I'm still convinced that the first woman to play in the NBA will actually be a short, lightning-quick point guard with great decision-making skills and a jumpshot. You know, like, Jose Calderon ... but ... um ... not.

ERICK DAMPIER - NEVER GIVE UP MIX


Izuzetno mi je drago da sam bio prisutan na jedinom Final Fouru hrvatske košarke.

Svi naši reprezentativci (Tomić, Andrić, Rozić) i potencijalni reprezentativci (Rudež, Stipanović, Simon, Vladović...) nisu se štedjeli na terenu, i nije bilo apsolutno nikavih dodirnih točaka s raskalašenom all-star atmosferom iz Pazina. BTW, žao mi je što Pankracije Barac nije dobio više minuta u subotu...



Košarkaški "mravinjak" Trnsko. Iako se na prvoj večeri nije pojavilo najavljivanih 2500 gledatelja, što je za medije primijetio i Aco, Trnsko je bilo odlično popunjeno unatoč TV prijenosima. Odlična vijest za košarku u eri nogometne dominacije.

Acina druga tehnička. Ako je po knjizi onda je bila, ako je po feelingu onda nije bila. Suci se u utakmicama ove težine i karaktera moraju nekada ravnati po feelingu, a nekada po knjizi i vice versa. It's up to them, nisam završio sudački tečaj...

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us
U ovom slučaju, u interesu popularizacije košarke uživo i putem TV-a, Aco je trebao biti ostavljen na klupi Zadra, što bi dalo dodatnu težinu zasluženoj pobjedi Zagreba. Ne vjerujem da je puno ljudi došlo u Trnsko kako bi isključivo vidjelo Acino isključenje...

Kruno Simon - MVP & najbolji strijelac. Zasluženo. Prije manje od 45 dana zvučalo je smiješno kada je Pavličević izjavio "da će mu jedan od stožernih igrača biti i Simon." Definitivno ga je krenulo protiv Zadrovih Amera, kapitalizirao je Zagrebovu pobjedu s linije slobodnih bacanja što je bio vrlo odgovoran zadatak.

U finalu skoro nezamjetan do zadnje minute, ali je onda presudio Ciboni. Uz ovakvog Simona Sesar ne bi imao šanse, niti da trenira...mark this words.

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us
"Pavličević je došao na gotovo." Krivo. Mnogi su treneri u zadnje tri sezone slomili zube na zagrebovim talentima. Pavličević ne samo da je primirio & pomirio ega, već je svakome jasno dao do znanja koliko vrijedi i koja je njegova uloga na terenu. Više od bilo kojeg prethodnika stavio je ono što je dobio u službu rezultata, što postaje sve očiglednije ne samo osvajanjem Kupa, već i plasmanom u Final 8 FIBA Kupa.



Pavličevićev uspjeh s momčadi relativnih anonimaca i bez udjela stranaca neumitno podsjeća na njegov proboj do europskog klupskog trona 1991., s razlikom što Tomić ipak nije ekstra talent poput Kukoča back then. Ali uz napomenu da se danas visoki dečki koji žele igrati košarku mnogo teže odvajaju od Playstationa, if you get my point...

To je to, ostaje Prvenstvo s Acom na kormilu Zadra. To je jedini način za dokazivanje, makar trajalo koliko trajalo, a svi znamo da Aco ne odustaje samo tako...

Ovo je bio tek Zaplet...

Zagrebaši su sa strahom čekali da se Zadar probudi, no u igri Zadra ostala je velika rezerva, igrali su 40 minuta bez čvrste obrane kakvu obično igraju.

Simon je bio junak večeri. Daj Bože da pola toga da u sljedećim utakmicama.

Tomić postaje pravi igrač i prema njemu ste u Hrvatskoj nepravedni što tražite više od onoga što ima.

Split nakon dugo vremena ima i glavu i rep, a Cibona je umorni euroligaš.

Nije lako Sunari provesti svoje ideje s ovom momčadi.

FLYIN' PUERTORICAN - GUILLERMO DIAZ: na kraju interviewa za idući broj "Superkošarke" Aleksandar Ugrinoski ga je opisao kao "brzog, energičnog i skočnog...svi smo 'zinuli kada smo vidjeli koliko može skočiti." Podsjeća na manje tehnički potkovanog Montu Ellisa iz Warriorsa. U svakom slučaju ako ga Cibona eventualno namjerava dovesti apeliram neka mu se da prava prilika, da nam i on ne bi ostao dužan za Atenu...

Da, bit će zanimjivo vidit Sunse sa podrapanim Shaqom. Shaq na 5 a Stoudemire seli na prirodnu 4 i onda Nash-Amare pick and roll sa Shaqom koji čeka na na dunk na ziceru. Kad nema Shaqa sve po starom samo Diaw igra na 4 umjesto Mariona, a to je isprobano jako dobro funkcioniralo.


Banks će malo falit jer igra jako dobru obranu na playevima i ima 3-cu, al' to će se već nekako pokrpat. Uglavnom ako Shaq bude kolko tolko mogo igrat obranu onda se Stoudemire defanzivno neće potrošit na centrima u playoffu, naravno ako Shaq ostane zdrav što je teško za očekivat.

MAKSIMALNO NABRIJANA KOŠARKAŠKA TISKOVINA: magazin "Superkošarka" br.24 po prvi puta u SLAM formatu...


Prvo ću premotati, a zatim pokušati vratiti barem neke od dugova prije brisanja...

Prošli tjedan je započeo s uobičajenom Associated Press listom TOP 25 NCAA ekipa. Ono što je bilo neuobičajeno oko te liste je da je na nju po prvi puta uvršten prošlogodišnji prvak - Florida Gatorsi. Razlog? Smjena generacija, NBA ima vu'lo za sportaše, NCAA tek radi na tome. BTW, Sport Klub (MaxTV) će ove srijede prenositi Florida vs Tennessee...

Definitivno najkompletnija NCAA ekipa koju sam so far gledao na NASN-u, Kansas Jayhawksi su ovaj tjedan 'pali od lokalnog rivala
Kansas Statea predvođenog najboljim strijelcom NCAA, Michaelom Beasleyem. NCAA je definitivno IN, odlučio sam u desnu kolonu uskoro uvrstiti popis Hvata u NCAA (njih 14)...

NBA TRANSFERI: Warriorsi su nakon 12 godina vratili Webbera, pokušati će s njim zaustaviti “propuh” pod košem, definitivno se nabrijavaju na doigravanje…ex-Warrioru J-Richu društvo će u sve-više-Jordanovim Bobcatsima po najnovijem praviti najniži NBA igrač Earl Boykins…Kidd has not landed anywhere yet, još uvijek je u New Jerseyu u društvu djevojke Hope, thanx for letting me know…

Gasol u Lakersima Aftermath. Definivno iskorak Lakersa prema prstenu, zastrašuje pomisao na ekipu s Bynumom & Gasolom u frontcourtu, Bryantom u backcourtu. Jerry West će pokušati još jednu reanimaciju Kwame Browna, a "Kriptonit" u paketu definitivno nije za baciti. "Slijepo crijevo" cijelog ovog transfera je Navarro, koji prema odlično upućenim euro-izvorima zna izgovoriti "how yes no" ili ti ga "kako da ne"?

Možda će dijeliti s Girom business klasu na comeback letu do Atene...

Šveđo u Žalgirisu. Što drugo reći nego super za Šveđu da je bliži Švedskoj, a pogotovo voljenoj Knežiji koja je na putu da dobije drugi košarkaški klub. Dobra okolnost za sve nas je što će se Šveđo imati priliku uštimati s Popom za Atenu, a posebno raduje činjenica što Šveđo ove godine igra apsolutno više nego ikada leđima okrenut košu...

...što bi moglo pomoći i protiv Puerto Rica feat. Ayuso. Naši definitivno svoju priliku u toj utakmici trebaju tražiti pod košem vs P.J. Ramos. Najbolje upućeni izvori kazuju da je Vujčić definitivno OUT, Gira je IN zbog pada tržišne vrijednosti, a Kasun je prošli tjedan počeo s treninzima. Izuzetno mi je drago da se Kas oporavlja, ima još cca pola godine do Atene i ako netko brije na domoljublje to je on...znate što želim reći s time...

..nekada je deviza naših bila "od Beograda do Tokija preko Milwaukeeja", nemojte me pitati zašto. Danas je to "od Seville do Pekinga preko Atene". Nije da se rimuje, ali bitno je da stvari štimaju na terenu, a kako će drugo kod Jaska...

...s Ayusom definitivno nije štimalo, priznajem. Pogotovo nakon što je danas off-the-rec potvrđeno da je Ayuso demonstrirao izuzetno bogat riječnik tijekom nekih Ciboninih treninga. Koliko je glasno bilo ne znam, ali dovoljno da okrenem svoju ploču..Ipak pozivam košarkašku javnost i medije da prekinu sa presirovom kampanjom:

"Ayuso je kriv za sve!!!". Svi su ga se uhvatili kao dežurnog krivca, od prestižnih košarkaških magazina pa do ex-trenera Vrankovića. Najironičnije je da Sportnet koji je vijest o njegovom odlasku objavio i prije utakmice u Le Mansu ima Ayusa na reklami za portal (check the picture). What’s next? Sjednica cro-Vlade na kojoj će Larrya Ayusa okarakterizirati kao glavnog krivca za inflaciju i što nema tramvaja kada Vam se najviše žuri..

SPORTSKE NOVOSTI/KOŠARKA - 04-02-2008

Gdje je Larry? Pojma nemam, ali znam ono što i Vi znate – Puerto Rico nam je glavni konkurent u atenskoj grupi, scouting Larrya Ayusa trebao bi biti s(a)vršen...

Definitivno ću nastaviti pratiti ZG srednjoškolsku ligu, i ne samo zbog mog nećaka koji nastupa za IV Gimnaziju. ZG FINAL EIGHT: II Gimnazija feat. Filip Torić, III Gimnazija, IV Gimnazija, X Gimnazija, Kemijska, Sportska i Ruđer Bošković.

O ostalim akcijama uskoro, nema odmora dok traje obnova, samo ću se pohvaliti da je Kukoč 11-12 snimka (courtesy of Eldar a.k.a Sole) bila HIT među hrvatskim rukometašima na letu u Norvešku...

There you go,

Živ sam,

Blizu sam izlaza iz tunela, nazire se svjetlo. Došao sam u posljednjih par dana do odgovora na neka naša zajednička pitanja.

Goran je moj nećak, prve košarkaške korake napravio je uz mene. Moram priznati da smo poprilično gledali Dražena tih dana...

Ponosim se njime.

High five,
