Tel Aviv is a candidate ???!! again???
yeah. After the london plan died it was belgrade and zagreb. Belgrade could not afford to pay the 3mil insurance the euroleague demands so then there was only zagreb. But they didn't have the money immediately either, so more cities showed their interest in hosting the event like rome, tel aviv and barcelona. Imo no city should host the event twice in the span of a decade. That would exclude barcelona and tel aviv
Agree on that, but I won't mind it will be held in TLV again <img src='<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' />
of course you don't <img src='<#EMO_DIR#>/laughing.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Laughing' />

A truly deserved award for him. He did a decent job with Partizan reaching Eurleague playoffs for two years in a row.

Quote:The European basketball transfer summer started slowly, but by the end of August, a large majority of the Euroleague rosters are already complete. Wasn’t it supposed to take a little bit longer? One of the two big remaining questions are A) the future whereabouts of Ricky Rubio, <img src='<#EMO_DIR#>/cool.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Cool' /> what surprise Olympiacos is going to come up with next. Patrick Beverley came completely out of the blue.

Here’s a collection of known Euroleague rosters, including qualification rounds. Faultlessness cannot be guaranteed, however, it should be okay to 99 percent. Teams not included are Orléans and Ventspils. I’ll try to add them later.

Full article with all Euroleague rosters:
That was an excellent article! It's always fun to see the teams' final (or near final) rosters for the upcoming season...familiar faces on different teams, new and exciting players to look out for, new teams, etc. Thanks for putting everything in one place. I'm definitely going to look over that article more than a few times this season to refresh my memory. Also, nice summaries of each team.
In The Game is an excellent site when it comes to details and 'heavy duty' information.

Quote:Josh Childress, the player whose signing upset Euroleague and NBA last season has arrived back to Athens to start preparation for a difficult campaign next season and has promised a title to Olympiacos fans.

Immediately after his arrival childress stated to the Greek media:

"I feel really good coming back. I am happy and can't wait for the new season to start. I am sure that we will win a title and make our fans happy this season." Childress stated and concluded:

"The new guy will help the team a lot. They are very good players and their presence will make the team even stronger. It is very positive that the team did not make many changes and have kept the same squad core as last season. We were a very good team last season but I think that this season we will be even stronger after adding bits and pieces that were missing last year."

Childress, Von Wafer and team captain Papaloukas will start training on Tuesday and will join Vasilopoulos, Mavrokefalides, Sloukas, Giannopoulos, Karathanasis and Beverely who already started working out.

Quote:As many as 45 representatives of Euroleague and Eurocup clubs will arrive to Barcelona, Spain from across Europe on Monday, August 31 to take part in the meeting of head coaches for the 2009-10 season.

The annual meeting uses first-hand communication from the Euroleague and Eurocup refereeing department to help coaches understand how different aspects of the game will be considered during the upcoming season.

The emphasis will be on Post Play and the Pick and Roll situation

Unicaja Malaga's Scottish center and Great Britain National Team member, Robert Archibald, will have to undergo surgery in his right eye and will be sidelined for two to three weeks, missing the start of the season in the ACB.

Archibald received an unintentional hit in the right eye in the game against CB Granada on Friday and after medical examination it was decided that he has to be operated. The surgery will take place later this week due to the swelling still present in the affected area.
