Final: Spain VS France Will Spain repeat?
Posted 16 September 2011 - 09:13 PM
Eurobasket 2011 final!
In my opinion Spain has the advantage of great chemistry and I think easy or not they will repeat their titles.
I hope though that France will win it!!
If Parker and Batum have a great night, then France will have hopes for the win!!
On the other side, Pau Gasol and Navarro should be the main targets of French defense, although I don't see how you can stop them.
Of course Parker is very difficult to be stopped too!!
I feel that Noah will have a great all around game on Sunday!!
Let's go "African Viking"!!

We didn't choke this time and the French team has achieved its main goal which is qualifying for the olympic game. Like i said before i don't think we stand much chance against Spain. However our player will play without any pressure, they are where they wanted to be and winning this final would be a great, great bonus.

Your players will "die" on the court to win the trophy because they know that is very possible that this will be the first and last time(for a long time) they have the opportunity of winning the gold!!
That's because Parker don't have more than 2 Eurobaskets left...

If France lose then your players will definitely not be as much disappointed as they would be if they lose from someone else.
France players are aware of the situation. They are the outsiders.
So they won't be as nervous as they would in an other situation!
That my be good for them.
I definitely want Spain to lose but I don't see that happening.

Yeah, although I haven't really seen him perform in clutch time like Parker and Batum. Let's not forget that when things don't work out for Spain, the refs see to making sure that things turn to their favour by giving phantom technicals, non-existent charges and other charges of the sort to give free points to Spain without effort. France should do absolutely anything it can to win this now, so that Spain doesn't have the air to say that they've won Eurobasket two times in a row and they start annoyingly calling themselves "mes que un equipo baloncesto nacional"

If De Colo - Trahure-Batum trio can support Noah inside, I think they can win.

Of course there is a difference here. PAO wanted Calathes to guard Navarro because we had Diamantidis! If Parker runs after Navarro in every defense he'll not be "Parker" on offense!!
I hope De Colo will be able to cope with Navarro's quickness and speed!
Anyway, we'll see!
Noah, tonight, have to bring his 'A' game in order to make it hard for Pau to score!
If they put him on Marc it will be a mistake...
Although, I'm pretty sure that they'll put him on Marc! That's because, if France's center guards Spain's PF, then who's going to guard Spain's center? We talk about a good and heavy center, only Noah can guard him.
Collet has work to do...
I don't care what you do Mr. Collet, win that game!!!

You know i can accept a spain win because the're clearly superior but that doesn't they're great winner. i can't wait when Navarro and Gasol will retire from their national team, it will be a great day for international basketball.
Damn, i'm so mad
