Eurobasket 2013 Discussion
 
The European championships start in less than a week and a few posters requested that I start this thread, so here it is. Slovenia is the host country this year.

In depth info on the tournament can be found here.

LIVE SCORES and STATS

Check this link.



The format
In the first stage every team has to play against every other team of their group (round-robin). This means five matches per team.

From every group the 3 best teams advance to the second stage and the 3 worst teams will be eliminated. In the second stage 2 new groups will be formed. The 3 best teams from groups A and B will be united to form group E whereas the 3 best teams from groups C and D will be united to form group F.

In these two new groups of the second stage only matches by teams that had not yet played each other have to be played. As for the matches that had already happened in the first stage their results will also count in the second stage. Therefore every team plays 3 matches and there are 12 teams in the second stage.

Out of the second stage the 4 best teams from each of the two groups advance to the quarterfinals (8 teams in total) whereas the 2 worst teams will be eliminated from championship (4 teams in total). [link]

It's a shame that so many players aren't playing but I'll definitely watch the tournament.

It's still high quality basketball and Sweden has for once qualified. Although the Swedish team is very weak beside Taylor and Jerebko it will still be alot of fun to see them go against great teams.

I think Sweden's future is very bright and I couldn't be happier for Jeff. He's always been extremely good he was definitely better than all of us when we played for the youth national team but making it to the NBA is really an amazing accomplishment. No one in basketball Sweden could have guessed.Couldn't have had happened to a better person either, really nice and humble guy.

Enough about Sweden though, I'm really excited to see Lithuania play, Jonas and Donatas are two very interesting players.

Born and raised in Sweden to a Swedish mother and American father. His family still lives in Sweden, including his dad, former NBA player Jeff Taylor. I have played with and against Jeff and he was a humble beast on the basketball court, very nice dad as well.

Jeff moved to the US to play HS ball at his dad's old HS at Hobbs.

Anton is playing and no, he's not one of the best players but Sweden's roster is weak.

Parker, Gasol and Batum are easily among the best in Europe.

Didn't know that. Cool info :cheers:

I hope he does well. Been impressed with him the last two summer leagues and he has a good opportunity in Charlotte for playing time, considering the lack of shooters on that team.
