  FIBA Europe Cup 2023-24
Posted by: TalkBasket - Nov 23, 2023, 1:19 pm - Forum: Other Pan-European competitions - No Replies

Quote:FIBA Europe Cup Second Round groups set

MUNICH (Germany) – The Second Round field for the 2023-24 FIBA Europe Cup season is now completed with 16 teams advancing from the Regular Season.

Bahcesehir College, Balkan Botevgrad, BG Gottingen, Casademont Zaragoza, Jonava CBet, Legia Warszawa, Manisa BBSK, Niners Chemnitz, Surne Bilbao Basket and ZZ Leiden were confirmed as winners of their respective groups.

Meanwhile, BCM Gravelines Dunkerque, CSM CSU Oradea, ERA Nymburk, FC Porto, Itelyum Varese and Sporting CP clinched their places as the six best ranked runners-up.

The groups for the Second Round are as follows:

Group K: Balkan Botevgrad (BUL), Surne Bilbao Basket (ESP), BG Gottingen (GER), FC Porto (POR)
Group L: Jonava CBet (LTU), Bahcesehir College (TUR), Legia Warszawa (POL), Sporting CP (POR)
Group M: Manisa BBSK (TUR), Casademont Zaragoza (ESP), ERA Nymburk (CZE), BCM Gravelines Dunkerque (FRA)
Group N: ZZ Leiden (NED), Niners Chemnitz (GER), Itelyum Varese (ITA), CSM CSU Oradea (ROU)

A restriction was applied to avoid any of the teams from the same Regular Season group playing again, meaning that Leiden and Gravelines could not be in the same group.

2022 champions Bahcesehir are the only former winners of the competition remaining with 12 different countries represented in the last 16 teams.

FIBA Europe Cup action resumes with the Second Round scheduled to get underway on December 6 with another round-robin format.

The top two teams from each of the four groups will advance to the Quarter-Finals in March.

  Who is a better player - Kevin Durant or LeBron James?
Posted by: TalkBasket - Nov 22, 2023, 3:14 pm - Forum: NBA - No Replies

Quote:Rashad McCants: Kevin Durant is better basketball player than LeBron James

In a bold proclamation, former NBA player Rashad McCants asserts that Kevin Durant will ultimately be remembered as a superior basketball player to LeBron James.

McCants, speaking on Gil’s Arena, emphasizes that the comparison is for the future, stating, “The real hoopers know that Kevin Durant is gonna go down as a better basketball player than LeBron at the end of the road.”

The discussion delves into the promotional aspects, with McCants highlighting the marketing disparities between Durant, LeBron, and Steph Curry.

“But promotion, you look at Steph [Curry], LeBron and KD. The promotion between Steph and LeBron is [big]. KD is [small]. I don’t know if he’s presentable or marketable. They have more commercials,” McCants said.

With six NBA championships collectively between Durant (two) and James (four), both players have left an indelible mark on the league.

Durant’s impressive career includes averages of 27.3 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 4.3 assists over 1,000 regular-season games.

In contrast, LeBron James, currently at 1,435 career regular-season games, boasts averages of 27.2 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 7.3 assists in 38 minutes per game. Notably, he holds the title of the all-time leading scorer with 39,012 career points.

As these two basketball titans continue to shape the NBA landscape, the debate around their legacies and contributions to the game will persist.
