Euro basket '09

So... Today it all begins. 16 teams of Knights of the orange ball will clash at each other, to see who's best. Only one team will be titled Champion. Sound the drums and pour the beer lads and lasses, as Lithuania will be bringing home the gold!

Will see about that. Although our team is weakened as well, so I hope that Butautas has a great strategy. Towns won't survive the riot again, it was bad enough when we lost to Russia during the last championship.

No offense... but the european basketball players and their league are a joke compared to their counterparts in the US and the NBA. Where do all the good european players play? That's right... And the NBA is just pure awesome. God I love this sport...

IMO nba is a theater, not a real basketball. Maybe I wont attend to a NBA game in my life, but seeing how the Sport's hall in Kaunas is full of green and white wearing sports fans that are shouting "ZALGIRIS!" till they lose their voices... This cannot be described, this must be expierienced first hand.
Also, for us lithuanians, basketball is much more than just a game.

Well you may have a point about the Drama but the level of the game is just not compareable. As selfloving and egocentric and gangsta (or whatever stereotype character quirks they may have) the NBA is, their game is the best. Europe (and the rest of the world for that matter) just doesn't even compare. I'm no America fan, but it's simply the truth.


And about Atmosphere... well I doubt they're any less enthusiastic that their european cousins but who cares? Their game is what counts.

Only because the supporters scream louder and have better looking flags and banners doesn't make the players better

But still, a horde of cheering fans raises the teams morale. But these days players just chase after money, and doesn't stay long in one club. It really sucks, as one team that has been winning in <insert league name here> with ease, has become weak just because few of their best players left the club, for a bigger sum of cash.
Of coure nba's game level is higher, but I'll always say that it's much too theatrical, when compared to others.
