Basketball quiz
The topic title says it all. The one who gets the right answer posts new question.

First question. Where does team name "Žalgiris" come from?
Green forest? "Žalia giria" ? Rolleyes Rolleyes Rolleyes
True. But I wanted to hear after what historic event it was called Žalgiris Smile
One name is synonymous with Zalgiris: Arvydas Sabonis. The team's owner is also its top player, as the 40-year old Sabonis earned First Team All-Euroleague honors this past season. The 1999 Euroleague champs are also five-time Soviet Union champs and 19-time Lithuanian LKL champs. Biggrin im smart aint i Biggrin
That's not the answer but true Thup Smile
was the founders name Zalgris or are they situated in a city called Zalgris?
Nope. OK I'll post the answer. It's the name of the greatest battle in the history of Lithuania.

The Battle of Grunwald took place on July 15 1410 between the Kingdom of Poland, the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and their allies on one side, and the Knights of the Teutonic Order on the other. It was the decisive battle of the Polish-Lithuanian-Teutonic War (1409-1411). The Teutonic Order state was defeated in the battle and never recovered its former influence.

The few eyewitness accounts of the battle are contradictory. The battle was fought in the plains between the now Polish villages of Grunwald (Žalgiris in Lithuanian), St?bark (Tannenberg in German) and Lodwigowo (Ludwigsdorf in German) in what was then Teutonic Order territory. The nearest city of any size was D?browno (Gilgenburg in German). The names Žalgiris (from Lithuanian: Žalia giria) and Grunwald (from German: gruner Wald), are both tentatively translated as Green forest. It was also named in OldPolish as Zielone Pole (Polish Green feld) and German Grunenfelde, Grunefeld Green feld in the oldest texts.

The battle is also called Žalgirio mūšis (Battle of Žalgiris) by Lithuanians, Bitwa pod Grunwaldem (Battle of Grunwald) by Poles, Schlacht bei Tannenberg (Battle of Tannenberg/Stebark) by Germans, Grunwald sugisi by Tatars.

Good question there Diego Thup I am not sure about them all but I'll try to make a guess.

1. I think it was Seoul. I really new it but cant't remember now and I don't want to search on Google.

2. Do you mean most championships? USSR and Yugoslavia.

3. Blazers and Real Madrid?
1 - Seoul was a fair defeat. There's a very very famous one some years before

2 - I meant clubs, but for national sides that's right

3 - Correct!

That makes 1 and a half
1 As I remeber it should be in 1972 Smile I counted back from 2004 Olympics. I should be right Smile

2. Most time winners are USSR players. Second goes Yugoslavia and than Lithuania i think Smile

3 hm maybe Real Madrid and Blazers?
wrong with second question so Real Madrid for sure and second maybe Milano Olimpia or Stefanel later it was called now it's Armani Jeans Baby
1 - Yes, it was 1972

2 - Real Madrid still have the record with 8, so there you are right. The other team is wrong but you have the right country

3 - It is correct, Blazers and Real Madrid
