It's Wednesday, and could it be a more perfect day to throw out two excellent video links?
Last Thursday and Friday, the Euroleague continued to go strong as we rolled into week three of the preliminary round. Sefolosha and Ibaka both got significant time on their respective clubs, and both are looking to have a strong season.
If you're confused....well, this video will confuse you even more. Regardless, it's totally worth it!
European basketball has many different types of atmospheres. When I saw Adam Morrison in Serbia, I described a very old, grimey atmosphere full of angry men and security guards. When I saw Serge Ibaka in Lithuania, the atmosphere very much depended on the fans in attendance. But the atmosphere of ALBA Berlin was the one that brought most warmth to my heart.
Today, Nike released a commercial with a much more direct tone than its' previous lockout spots. All of the shots are in low light, with the spotlights that used to be lighting the arena now shining down on the players as they trained in other places.
Though it's looking like the lockout might finally be over, the Euroleague season is still going strong, and Thabo Sefolosha and Serge Ibaka are still with their respective clubs. We'll take a quick look at how Thabo and Ibaka did, and to say the least, it was impressive.
