Thanks kobi

Why couldn't Kleiza play like that on the Nuggs last year? Sheesh.

Nice to see Shumpert's still playing, and playing pretty well.

pegs Shumpert has been very solid in Europe for years now...glad to see he's finally in the Euroleague and playing so well. And I don't know what's up with Rubio. We'll have to wait and see how well he does this season...if could really affect his wanting to stay in Europe or go to the NBA.

KC: Ksistof plays for Montepaschi, Darjus for Real Madrid.

Great work on the thread kobimel. Especially the players you might know part. I know its you're already putting it tons of effort on this but you think you can add the averages for those guys, or maybe just a link to those stats.

Tough start for Partizan at 1-2.
Figured they'd be in for a tough year losing Tepic & Lasme.

Bo McCaleb is 2nd on the team in points, which is cool because I liked him at UNO (University of New Orleans) in college. Aleks Maric (Nebraska) is making an immediate impact inside, too, leading the team.

Jan Vesely is also just refusing to miss from the field at 8-10 on the year, and 3-4 from 3. But he's only 6-11 from the FT line. Not good.

Kinda weird seeing the team led by 2 Americans in scoring right now. Not really indicative of Partizan's historic returns.

It was incredible. What are your thoughts on Vesely? He's looking like a pretty good prospect.

Also, Maccabi lost to Montepaschi, which is always nice.

I think this is almost a lost year for Vesely. Everyone thought he'd "break out", but Partizan's team got such a complete overhaul, and they really don't have any playmakers, and that hurt Vesely. I like him a lot as an energy guy right now, and his versatility. I like how he always seems to make a big block, 3, or dunk to get the crowd involved.

I'm not sure if he needs to stay in Europe (his body does need some work), or what, but he just needs to play with some guys who can create.

Thanks for the info, I don't really know much about him. Do you think he might go to a bigger team next year (like last year's star youngsters did)?

I'm really not sure, but I wouldn't be surprised either way.
I could see him staying with Partizan because he's so young yet (born in '90), compared to guys like Pekovic ('86) and Tepic ('87). Not to mention he really hasn't had that "break out" year that I was saying earlier.
On the other hand, if he goes to a bigger team, I wouldn't be shocked in the least bit.

Hmm...so it sounds like he isn't ready for the biggest stages in Europe yet. In that case he should probably stay with Partizan for another year or two...they're great at developing players and according to what you're saying he still has plenty of room to improve.

And if we're already on the topic of the old Partizan guys, have you been following last year's trio? They're doing well themselves:

Velickovic: 12.8 ppg/5.4 rpg in 25.2 mpg in Spain and 8.3 ppg in 23.4 mpg in the Euroleague

Tripkovic: 10.8 ppg (50% on threes) in 20.5 mpg in Spain and 10 ppg (46% on threes) in 20.4 mpg in the Eurocup

Tepic: 7.2 ppg in 20.5 mpg in the Greece

As for Lasme, he hasn't really found his role yet with Maccabi. He's been incredible defensively but has struggled on offense (which was obviously bound to happen, only Maccabi, the press and their fans have no patience). Too bad, really, he's a solid player. I'd love to see him in a Hapoel jersey next season, but I think he'll find a bigger team in the summer.
