Slovenia NT 2011 - Black Urum - 12-20-2010

Quote:Slovenian National Team has got a new coach. None other than Bozidar Maljkovic.





The decision to hire Majkovic was taken during the last session of Slovenian Basketball Federation for 2010. Maljkovic will sign a three years deal, with a possibility of early contract termination.



Maljkovic signing has caused some surprise as despite his great coaching career the Serbian has not coached a team for a while. The surprise is even bigger if one takes into consideration that he has not been the head coach of any National Team so far in his career. Nevertheless he has won numerous titles on club level, even winning Euroleague with three clubs.



His last job was in 2007 when to he took over Tau (now Caja Laboral) from Velimir Perasovic who had medical problems.

Congrats!!! Excellent decision by Slovenian Basketball federation. Maljkovic, one of the best coaches from EX YU. Good luck!!!


Slovenia NT 2011 - straight forward - 01-07-2011

Can Slovenia win something finally? Probably not (again). They always have players to choose, but always lacking something. More over, Eurobasket 2011 will filled with quality and the rosters will be fat.


Slovenia NT 2011 - Black Urum - 01-15-2011

Beno Udrih will skip Eurobasket 2011...


Slovenia NT 2011 - Raze Lupin - 01-16-2011

I'm excited for Slovenia! I always root for Slovenia and Serbia national teams. Eurobasket is by far the most entertaining and competitive competition. This year might be the best ever.


Slovenia NT 2011 - Kenneth23 - 01-18-2011

It will be a very interested tournament! Their will be very excited matches! I can't wait till the start of the tournament!


Slovenia NT 2011 - Kenneth23 - 02-03-2011

Does Matjaz Smodis still play for the NT? He isn't player he used to be but if he can stay healthy and in shape he can help Slovenia

He's still very good. Still would be one of key players for Slovenia and his influence for the team could be the same as Turkcan's for Fener.

You're right straight forward. I hope he still plays for Slovenia. Does anyone know whether Smodis still plays for Slovenia?

Quote:Matjaz Smodis is diagnosed with heart problems



Our team’s forward Matjaz Smodis is out because of recently diagnosed heart problems. The player is advised to take full rest for a week, then he will undergo detailed examination which will allow to talk about the perspectives of his return on the floor.



Thus one more team leader is added to CSKA injured list – army men hospital still hosts Alexander Kaun (back), Victor Khryapa (ankle) and JR Holden (leg).

I hope Smodis will be cleared to play basketball again and I wish him the best. This will probably mean that he won't play for the NT.


Slovenia NT 2011 - Kenneth23 - 03-08-2011

Matjaz Smodis is back to practices



On the 2 March 2011 Matjaz Smodis took part in his first practice after 10-day break needed to study the heart problems.



After the tests in GMS Clinic CSKA received two independent conclusions - from Myasnikov Cardiology Institute in Moscow and well-known clinic from Serbia. The doctors found no extrasistals in heart functioning and pulled off any contraindications for sports activities.



that's very good news for CSKA, Smodis and Slovenia. Hopefully he can stay healthy so that he can play for the NT this summer and help them

It would be very good for Slovenia if Smodis plays, he would give them a boost. Like you said let's hope that he stay injury free

Basketball Federation of Slovenia announced that they will host six training camps for players born between 1988 and 1993 in order to help Bozidar Maljkovic find at least two young players that will be included in 14-men roster for EuroBasket 2011.

I think it's good Maljkovič idea - 13,14 players is not very important, so need give experience for young players. I hope, that to Lithuania goes Dino Murič and Zoran Dragič maybe..

This is very good Idea. I don't understand why sasha vujacic and Beno Udrih do not play on SLO senior team??

I heart some rumors, that Vujacic and Udrih are bad character. Udrih someone year leave Slovenia NT becouse he want's biggest role...

Zoran Dragic will definitely go to Lithuania, but not as a 13th or 14th player. Maljkovic's style is very defensive and Zoran is one of the best defensive players, so I'm sure he will have a big role in our team. When the roster for the training camps will be announced, I will publish it here. <img src='http://www.talkbasket.net/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' />

Udrih didn't want to be a backup for Lakovič on WC in Turkey, so he left the team. This year he got the invitation from Maljkovic, but Beno is getting married in summer, so he will not be able to participate in Lithuania.



I don't know where to start the story about Vujacic - but the most important think is that he is not interested in playing for Slovenia. He wanted to be a leader and did not want to adjust to the role of team player (giant ego), so there were some arguments with our basketball federation.

Slovenia is not exactly the case of such teams as USA, Spain, Lithuania, Greece, Argentina when one could say that if they coming with full package, they are contenders. I don't know why...They could easily win some medals in 2007 and 2009 Eurobaskets...
