Statements by Dejan Bodiroga on Serbian television in detail

Much will depend on the future format of the event. There is also a great prospect of new investments in basketball. Many have emerged who want to invest their money in the EuroLeague. That also means opening up new markets, interesting markets that could improve the organization. Of course it is important to find a balance. I think by the end of the season we made a plan, a plan that outlines the direction we want the EuroLeague to take.”

For the participation of other Serbian teams in the event: “Depending on the system The EuroLeague guarantees a place to the winner of the ABA League. This season, due to the circumstances and because of the Russian teams, Partizan also got a place. It is important to note that the region has given a lot to European basketball. THE The ABA League has three representatives, so they were reduced to two and now there is one. This area offered a lot to the organization and the players and coaches. It is necessary to find a balance in the future, not only to look at the markets.”

On the presence of Serbia in the EuroBasket: “I don’t think it’s a fiasco, but it’s definitely a failure. But I see the positive. We played very important games in World Cup qualifying, which we won, such as against Greece and Turkey. “

In the group phase we were dominant. Even when Italy lost we were in control for 25 minutes but there was a power cut that denied us victory. We can’t say that everything was bad because of those 15 minutes.”

A beautiful moment for Giannis Antetokounmpo, who signed his shoes and gave them to his son Nick Calathes after the Bucks vs. Magic game, with the Fenerbahce guard thanking him via Instagram.

The Bucks beat the Magic 109-102 in Orlando, with Giannis Antetokounmpo stopping at 34 points. But it was something he did after the fight that had its own meaning.

When the game was over, the Bucks star met up with his son Nick Calathes (who lives in the greater Florida area) and gave him his shoes and even took a picture with Thanasis Antetokounmpo. The Bucks even caught the scene on camera – unaware of the ins and outs of the moment – and Nick Calathes later thanked the Antetokounmpo brothers by uploading a photo of his son with them and writing:I love you! Thank you for making my son the happiest kid!”

One of the outstanding figures in European basketball, Nikola Vujicic becomes the 11th EuroLeague legend. The Croatian center will be honored before the game Maccabi – Valencia (December 8th, 9:05 p.m.) on the 12th day of the competition.

He’s on the world’s radar, now he’s officially becoming a EuroLeague legend. The reason for Nikola Vučić, who has won two cups (2004 and 2005) with Maccabi Tel Aviv and been named a member of the top five of Europe’s leading club competition five times.

The experienced center of Villeurbanne, Maccabi, Olympiakos and Efes, who made 192 appearances in 11 seasons, averaging 12.7 points (56% 2 points, 34.5% 3 points, 69.5% shots), 5.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists is one of the most distinctive personalities in the history of the EuroLeague and will be honored accordingly on December 8th before the start of the national team’s game on matchday 12 against Valencia (08/12, 21:05).

This makes Vujicic the eleventh EuroLeague legend after Theodoris Papaloukas, Juan Carlos Navarro, Ramunas Siskauskas, Sarunas Jasikevicius, Dimitris Diamantidis, Mirsad Turksan, Felipe Reyes, Vasilis Spanoulis, Dusan Ivkovic and Simon Mizrahi.

It is worth noting that although more than 10 years have passed since the Croatian center last played in the EuroLeague, he is still one of the two players in the history of the competition with 2,000+ points, 1,000+ rebounds and 500+ assists. The other person who has achieved something similar is Nick Calathes. The two also share another standout feat as they are the only ones to record a triple-double.
