Very proud of the Serbian basketball team


I'm extremely proud of our team and our brilliant coach who led the youngest team in the tournament (average age: 23) to epic wins over Croatia and Spain en route to a bronze medal game finish. We would have been in the gold medal game against the USA had it not been for a turkish team which blatantly cheated to squeeze out a criminal 1-point 'victory'. As the players begin to enter their prime over the next 5 years we can expect to compete for the gold at EuroBasket 2011, the 2012 Olympics and the 2014 World Championships.

Having 3 Janissary players of Serbian origin and a Serbian coach wasn't enough for turkey to win without cheating. To add insult to injury there were celebrations in Novi Pazar after turkey's scandalous victory. If they identify with turkey more than they do with their own country I invite these confused individuals to do us all a favor and relocate.

Despite this severe injustice the team and fans can look forward to a bright future! Congratulations to our team, we are very proud!
