    Exactly. Twins are too small for him and other center is.. just too old, too slow.

    Anyway, Spain just lost to Italy and Lithuania will meet Italy in QF. If LTU win QF they'll meet Ukraine or Croatia in semi-final.
    Italy's gotta be the surprise of the tournament. It constantly seems like they're playing above their talent level. And they lack bigs, and aren't that fast for a small ball team. I don't really get it.

    I am waiting for the comment that there's another team suddenly better without il mago than with him.

    And just imagine if they had Bargnani!

    No Bargnani ( maybe that's why they're winning ), no Danilo Gallinari and still, they play like champions.

    I hope to see JV putting some monster stats against Italy bigs. ( If he gets any minutes.. )

    Italy is without their enforcer Mancinelli.

    Spain lost intentionally, to avoid LT, I know it sounds strange, but it was obvious.

    No chance. Serbia's just as tough a match.

    Have you seen the game? It was obvious. At one moment they were literally throwing bricks from foul line. Serbia has weaker frontline and Spain already know Serbia's game and beaten them in friendly games. It's just that Spain has only Gasol at the frontline and their coach does not want to risk, going against team with deep frontline in quarterfinals.

    Say it isn't so, Jose. The basketball gods (they do exist) frown on this type of behaviour. It could come back to haunt Spain.

    SI Top 100 NBA PLAYERS: Notable omissions

    Jonas Valanciunas, Toronto Raptors (C, 21)
    2012-13 stats: 23.9 MPG, 8.9 PPG, 6.0 RPG, 1.3 BPG, 55.7 FG%
    2012-13 advanced stats: 15.6 PER, 3.9 Win Shares, -1.3 RAPM

    Valanciunas would be locked into a top-100 spot if our list considered future seasons, but in his current form he barely missed the cut. All the same, there’s much to like in his growing game, and it’s possible that the second-year center (and reigning Summer League MVP) could improve quickly enough to make this omission glaring in retrospect. — RM

    And Kleiza looks like the guy who gets killed at the 25-minute mark of the movie because he snuck into the shitter to eat a slice of pizza when he was supposed to be on guard duty.

    Man, anyone else watching the Spain game right now? They're absolutely slaughtering Serbia, and Sergio Rodriguez is showing off the best handles this side of an And1 mixtape.

    When Ricky Rubio makes 3 pointer and Spain finishes 1st half with one more 3pointer you already know it's done.

    Their offence and defence is crazy.
