I realized I’m absolutely focused in the Olympic Games so I think it’s a good moment to take a break before the opening ceremony. Today we are back with european clubs. I started with Maccabi Tel Aviv because it was the first FIBA team to defeat a NBA team in history but Real Madrid is the king of Europe with 9 championships and 8 runner-ups.
After the last results in Euroleague … Maccabi Tel Aviv is defeated of the competition. Is the first time in half century that Maccabi doesn’t reach the Top16. But I’m going to give them one reason for laugh remembering better times.
Retired since this June Andrei Kirilenko (1981) was the total player. It’s hard to find a player able to score, rebounder and blocker. Well, Andrei was of the bests and playing as outside player. But besides, he had a big passing vision and he could steal balls as a point guard being a big man.
Real Madrid is the champion 20 years after! Congratulations!
I’ve thought it would be interesting to share my experience in the Fan Zone because these things doesn’t appear in the media as frequently as the games. So I expect you find it interesting too!
This week we have the Euroleague Final Four and it’s in Madrid! Really it was a good opportunity to go but the tickets are sold out. I will pay more attention the next time!
One of the reasons of this project it was to help others doing what I know to do. I’m concerned by the consequences of the Nepal disaster so I think it’s a good moment to start and I’ve decided to put on charity auction this fantastic piece for help them. All the final amount will be donated to Unicef for the people affected in the Nepal disaster so bid or share!
We continue with other FIBA legend before retiring: Vassilis Spanoulis (1982). The leader of the Olympiakos and the Greece national team started well his career in Larissa (1999-2001) and Maroussi (2001-2005) but he began to reach the international fame …
Juan Carlos “La Bomba” Navarro (1980) wouldn’t need presentation. The star of FCBarcelona and Spain national team is already a FIBA legend before retiring. The Euroleague all-time leader in points, three points and games played has a lot of individual and team titles. As his achievements are outstanding it’s better you take a look to the summary inside the post.
