Somethings never change... Is it me or is this deja vu?
Darko pulled with 1 second left. Serbia loses. 74-71. Eliminated. Zelly absolutely killed the Serbs.
So did Darko make the most of his 9 seconds?
Final France 74- Serbia 71 LB would have been proud of this SErbian coach... Zelly's stinking up the whole game... Krstic fouls out with 1:08 left .... so the coach puts Zelly in... what does he do? two quick fouls (one on offense)... and he misses two FT's... they finally let Darko play with 10 seconds left... he gets an offensive rebound and misses the shot. Serbia looked tight the whole game... couldn't stop the ball. On offense they never tried to take advantage of their size difference. That's it for Serbia I believe.
Zelly..Zelly...Zelly yeah, one rebound. He must have really upset somebody. Dang, I was looking forward to more Darko basketball. Thanks alot Zelly! Zelly committed an offensive foul then drew a foul and proceeded to miss both free throws. Why did that hack get all of that time again? I know his post game is okay, but jeesh that dude couldn't D-up Ray Charles.
Yeah, I might have been a little hard on Jaric... since it wasn'rt just him letting his man get by...it wasn't just Tony Parker getting inside either. But I think the slow footed gaurds really cost them... especially without a shot blocker in the game (ah hem... ie Darko)
In a way, maybe this is kind of good because it shows Flip, or whoever, that Darko DID make a difference for Serbia, and there's a good possibility they would have won with him in there. Please give him a chance Flip.
The Game Hey, it looks like Zelly could play for the Lions.
tough loss to the french. boris diaw's free throw shooting struggles continue, he is now 4-24 this tourney. thats a whopping 16.6%, enough to make ben wallace feel embarrassed for the guy... dirk carrying his team over the line with half his teams points. memo hasn't really had much to write home about this tourney, i know these tournaments are a different style to the nba and all that, but is there anyone who still thinks we should have kept him over sheed?
another fine roast on the Lions LMAO! They just keep comin'!
Serbs lost cause Darko got no pt,simple as dat.Looks like some head cases in the serb team,starting with the head coach who at the post-game press conference said he's ready for the mental hospital.HAHAHA & now you tell us coach.Main thing is Darko's got on the wrong side of that coach during last nights practisse,thats why no action for Darko today.In other words 'NO DARKO=NO WIN'.
Lion Strategists And maybe Zelimir Obradovic can coach 'em. [micro]Linkie no work without membership at site. Please don't link to paid sites.[/micro]
