Former Lithuania head coach Jonas Kazlauskas criticized FIBA Secreatry General Andreas Zagklis and the format of the Basketball World Cup.
Here is what the experienced coach said in an interview with the Lithuanian website 15min.lt, per Donatas Urbonas:
“I’m sorry, but who is this guy? I worked in Greece for 4 years, but I never heard of him. Who knows him in basketball world? What ideas does he have? How he gonna solve basketball problems?
This system is weird. Maybe it‘s good for the Philippines, but it destroys European basketball, where it’s probably the best in whole world.”
