Croatia Fall Apart In 2nd Half, Lose 101-78 To Russia

September 10, 2017

In what was supposed to be a promising EuroBasket tournament for Croatia, quickly turned into a disaster Sunday night against Russia.

 

 

Croatia did what was expected of them in the EuroBasket 2017 group stage behind team leaders Bojan Bogdanović and Dario Šarić. They finished 2nd in the group, going 4-1, with their only loss coming to perennial European giants Spain.

 

 

In what was a close game at halftime, 46-42 for Russia, became a landslide victory for the Russians after a 26-15 3rd quarter. Croatia never recovered and will end their tournament before making the quarterfinals.

 

 

Bogdanović lead the team with 28 points but got little help from teammates. Chemistry looked off and Croatia never regained any composure late in the game. Šarić added 13 points but only shot 3/14 from the field. All-in-all a disappointing campaign for Croatia after expecting to at least make the quarterfinals. This is the second straight tournament they will be exiting in the Round of 16.

    Our path to the finals is likely against all orthodox Christian teams

    Russia today …..winner players Greece…..then Serbia who are likely to beat Italy

    Spain, Latvia Croatia, and Serbia will be the final four.

    Greece is gonna try to get revenge against us for knocking them out of the Olympics, but we’ll get through. :)

    Fuck me, this was a sad performance by our basketball team. Very interesting article, interview with Vrankovic. Countries like Hungary and Czech republic have 10 times bigger budgets for their federations and clubs than we do. Wtf? Croatia is a basketball nation. Time to pull efforts together and spend money on basketball clubs, the federation, to develop young talented players. And most of all, time to find a first rate coach who can fill their heads with the winning mentality they need when they play in tournaments. It’s not like these guys don’t play with their heart on their sleeves, they really do. But that last dimension is lacking. And it has been lacking for a very very long time.

    Funding for basketball in Cro has been dead for a very long time.

    Our genetics are the only reason why we somehow manage to have a few NBA caliber players in the league at all times.

    Who here has ever even seen a basketball court in Croatia?

    They’re nowhere to be found.

    Can’t imagine what Cro would be capable of with an actual grassroots basketball program.



  6. The Beast says:

    Saw a few courts in Croatia but knowone playing. Their has to be more of a defensive mentality and better coaching strategy to defeat these other nations. Also how to involve others in the game plan other than Bogdanovic and Saric.

    “Our path to the finals is likely against all orthodox Christian teams

    Only Catholics are Christian. What you should’ve wrote was, “Our path to the finals is likely against all schismatic/antichrist teams.”

    There are plenty of basketball courts in the cities which love basketball. Most won’t play in the heat of the summer so you’ll usually find people playing pickup around 5-7 pm.

    Shitty way to go out after several great performances. Future looks good, if the young NBA guys start getting some minutes.

    Too many fucking Croatian RETARDS who want to kill off White people in some RETARD catastrophic medieval religious war. “Oh, our words are better than yours, so let’s kill each other wholesale and then make the best and brightest who are left childless priests in the name of Jesus!”…..Meanwhile, it doesn’t matter what religion a White country is, only White countries are called “Nazis” if they want to cut off immigration.

    RETARD

    Please explain how you came to the conclusion that anyone who’s pro-white is a “boogie man Serb”?

    I don’t judge people who lived 500 years ago based on what I know today/500 years of hindsight, but I do judge RETARDS who take on a mindset from 500 years ago b/c they’re too cowardly to deal with today’s REALITY.

    You called yourself pro-white!

    Why do these white countries you speak of want to cut off immigration?

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ku_Klux_Klan

    “The second group was founded in 1915 and it flourished nationwide in the early and mid-1920s, particularly in urban areas of the Midwest and West. Rooted in local Protestant communities, it opposed Catholics and Jews, while also stressing its opposition to the Catholic Church at a time of high immigration from mostly Catholic nations of southern and eastern Europe.”

    Do you consider the above times medieval?

    “In the history of Europe, the Middle Ages or Medieval Period lasted from the 5th to the 15th century.”

    Does the KKK being anti-Catholic make them anti-white?
    Does opposing immigration from southern and eastern Europe make the KKK anti-white?

    You’re calling me a moron for not being a traitor??

    I’m not a sociopath traitor, I’m White and I’m pro-White and I’m pointing out the hypocrisy that ONLY White countries are called “Nazis” if they want to cut off immigration to stay White. Get it now?

    I talked about the middle ages b/c I was responding to shit for brains’ delusion that Orthodox Christians (“schismatics”) are an enemy threat while everywhere White people live is becoming non-white. Understand?

    Because the now non-existent KKK were against Catholics we should be traitors to our own race & assist in the genocide of our race?

    Would you be against Protestants mass immigrating to Croatia shit for brains? And should White protestants then want Whites worldwide to be assimilated out of existence b/c they weren’t welcomed by everybody into another White country??

    You’re a fucking MORON beyond belief, a useful idiot to those people who’ve already brought non-whites to Croatia for ONLY ONE reason, to make Croatia less White.

    Go put on your 1930s “Ustasa” uniform and reenact WW2 loser, while everyplace around you turns non-white b/c of anti-white government POLICIES ya fuckin clown.

    It never ceases to amaze me how every single anti-white is a two faced faggot. “Ustasa” thinks being a TRAITOR to your own race is justified b/c the KKK was pro-white. So then every Croat should be a TRAITOR b/c the Ustasa were pro-Croat by that logic, correct? And every cross must be taken down from every church b/c of all the millions of people killed in the name of Christ, correct?

    You left out the anti-Catholic part, why?

    The “pro-white KKK” saw Catholics as an enemy threat, and you called @Anonymous shit for brains for suggesting schismatics are our enemies!

    Did the “pro-white KKK” have shit for brains for seeing Catholics as a threat and opposing white immigration to the shit ol’ U.S of A?

    “Would you be against Protestants mass immigrating to Croatia shit for brains?”

    Majority of blacks in the world are protestant moron.
    Would you be against black protestants mass immigrating to Croatia?

    Remember the reason you don’t want black protestants immigrating to Croatia is not because they’re protestant but because they’re black you stupid little moron.

    “I’m pointing out the hypocrisy that ONLY White countries are called “Nazis” if they want to cut off immigration to stay White. Get it now?”

    By Nazis they mean racist, so what’s your problem you little twerp?

    “Joining the Klan is as easy as filling out an online form — provided you’re white and Christian.”

    Do you believe black protestants are Christian?

    No way you answer that question.
