-     MARIO HEZONJA STUCK IN CORNER BY COACH - SHOWS HE WILL BE THE MAN

EJBB had Mario Hezonja as the best Euro in the 2015 NBA draft and when EJBB hears on national sports talk radio and Philly sports talk radio that the 2015 NBA draft, was a 3 player draft with Karl Towns, DeAngelo Russell and Jahil Okafor, EJBB just has to LAUGH at the So called Draft experts.  Hezonja was held back in Europe by coach Xavier Pascual, not using all of his talents and in game one of his Orlando Summer league on July 4th, EJBB was wondering if coach Pascual snuck in the building and was now coaching the Orlando summer squad, as the 5th pick in the NBA draft did not get the start and when he was put in the game, PG Tyler Harvey acted like he was the 5th pick in the draft, as Harvey was jacking up shots and the ball swung everywhere but where Hezonja was.  Hezonja was stuck in the corner ALA Kyle Korver style and EJBB was wondering if Jeff Van Gundy was now on the Magic coaching staff, as Jeff did the same thing to Vassilis Spanoulis in his one year in the NBA.  Hezonja and Spanoulis are more than stand in the corner guys, they are special Euro players and though NBA fans never saw the GREATNESS of Spanoulis, they will soon see a gifted Euro in Hezonja, that can shoot the Deep 3 ball, run pick and roll plays for his bigs and take it to the bucket for monster Dunks.   The way Hezonja was used in game one WAS A JOKE, PG Elfrid Payton was jacking up shots like he was Steph Curry and even on the game winnig 3 by Hezonja, Mario was not even looked at when the first shot went up.   Hezonja was in the USA just 48 hours and his new teammates tried to ICE HIM OUT early, ALA Isiah Thomas did to Jordan in an All-Star game, but Hezonja has that Star quality and the sooner the Magic PG's understand to pass him the ball and the Magic coaches take him out of the Kyle Korver corner spot, the Quicker the Magic will win and the Quicker the Anti-Euro stat guys saying Euros are Busts in the Lottery. will understand that Mario Hezonja will be a Star in the NBA Up-Tempo game - WAKE UP HATERS !!!!!

-       USA WIN GOLD MEDAL IN OT AS CLUTCH PG JALEN BRUNSON IS NAMED MVP

1. USA 79 Croatia 71 OT - Team USA won their semifinals game versus the home Greek squad and a loud Greek crowd 82-76, in what was their closest game of this U-19 world championship and heading into the Suday Final versus Croatia, most thought beating Greece was their toughest test, but the Sunday final versus Croatia was not like the earlier 103-81 win by USA, where Croatia turned the ball over 24 times, this Sunday final was a CLASSIC, as the nation of just 4 million people from Croatia versus the 320 million people of USA went into OT, even though Croatia was only playing 5 or 6 men and without their best player Dragan Bender who did not play due to a sneaker contract.   Croatia only had 14 TO's in the Sunday final and though they only made 3-21 from deep and 14-23 from the FT stripe, Croatia had a shot to upset the USA squad, as Luka Bozic was fouled on a spin move to the hoop with 4 seconds left and hit the first FT to tie it up at 67-67, but missed the second and the game went into OT, versus the deeper USA roster.

Croatian 18 year old SF Nik Slavica who plays for Cibona put his name on NBA scouts radar with the way he played in the 2nd half today, sticking jumpers and blocking the Dunk attempt by USA SF Jayson Tatum, who was dunking on guys the entire tourney, but Slavica showed he has hops and met Tatum at the rim for the spectacular Block and Slavica led Croatia with 23 points in 42 minutes, on 9-19 FG, 1-4(3PT), 4-7 FT, 6 assists and All-Tourney First team big man Marko Arapovic had another big day with 16 points, 12 rebounds and helped hold USA big man Harry Giles to just 4-20 on FG's on the inside, before Arapovic fouled out, which was key against such a short handed Croatian roster in the OT. Luka Bozic and Ivica Zubac added 12 points apiece, with Zubac grabbing 13 rebounds.

The deeper USA roster was again led by their MAIN MAN and the MVP of the tourney, soon to be Villanova PG Jalen Brunson was 0-4 early on FG's, but when money time was on, Brunson was the man, just as he was versus Greece with 30 points, Brunson led USA in the final with 14 points, 7 assists, ZERO TO's, 5 rebounds, on 5-11 FG, 2-5(3PT), 2-2 FT and was followed by Jayson Tatum and Harry Giles with 13 points apiece, but USA making 9-20 from deep, compared to just 3-21 by Croatia was a major factor in the USA win.

-      TURKEY WIN 3rd PLACE F. KORKMAZ 28 PT 11-20(FG)4-8(3PT)2-3(FT) 8 R 5 ST

2. Turkey 80 Greece 71 - Furkan Korkmaz (28 PT) Tyler Dorsey (19 PT)


-                         USA VS GREECE 82-76 - FOURTH QUARTER VIDEO

-       USA ADVANCE TO FINAL VILLANOVA PG JALEN BRUNSON 30 PTS LEADS

1. USA 82 Greece 76 - For the Greek U-19 squad to beat USA, they had to make their FT shots and EJBB thinks the coaching strategy should have been to start Greek American Tyler Dorsey and have him guard the best player on the USA roster, Villanova bound PG Jalen Brunson, but Dorsey came off the bench and did not get a shot of guarding Brunson until late in the 3rd quarter, by that point Brunson was rolling. Brunson led USA to the 6 point win in Greece, as he went for 30 points, on 9-13 FG, 2-5(3PT), 10-12 FT, 4 assists and was followed by big man Harry Giles with 13 points, 11 rebounds, while Terrance Ferguson made clutch 3 point shots, 3-5(3PT), 11 points and Jayson Tatum played above the rim for 11 points.  Greece got outrebounded 44 to 33 and Greece only made 18-32 FT's in the loss, as they were led by Greek American and Oregon bound combo-guard Tyler Dorsey with 23 points, on 5-7 FG, 2-2((3PT), 11-16 FT, 6 rebounds, while Panathinaikos 18 year old SF Vasileios Charalampopoulos had a big day from deep, 5-8(3PT), 21 points, on 7-13 FG, 2-4 FT and big Greek center Geogios Papagiannis started strong with 8 early points, but ended with 10 points, on 5-9 FG, as USA went Golden State style SMALL BALL to take the big Greek out of the game.  USA will play Croatia in the Final & Greece will play Turkey in 3rd place game.

EJBB heard lots of conversation and hype about DeAndre Jordan signing with the Dallas Mavs and then not signing with the Mavs and going back to LOB CITY with the LA Clippers and sticking it to the Mavs, who still needed a center. The Mavs made a trade with the Bucks and grabbed Georgian center Zaza Pachulia, but in EJBB opinion, the Mavs let a dominant low post scorer go to the Spurs, as the squad that signs more Euros than any other NBA team, the Spurs grabbed 7 foot 3 inch 300 pound 26 year old Serbian center Boban Marjanovic, to take over down low when Tim Duncan finally retires after next year, signing him to a one year 2 million dollar deal.  Marjanovic was selected to the First team in the Euroleague as the center and though he is not the athlete or shot blocker that DeAndre Jordan is, Marjanovic can grab rebounds and DEMANDS a Double in the Paint, and Oh Yeah he makes 78 PECENT of his FT's, so their will be no Hacka Boban in the NBA.    The Post defense that DeAndre Jordan plays is average at best, as you can see in Videos that Nikola Pekovic abused him in the paint, what is all the hype about a guy who does not make FT's and his one offensive move is lobbing to him for a dunk, the Mavs should be happy they did not pay DeAndre Jordan like he was MICHAEL JORDAN, and to the Dallas Mavs, Ioannis Bourousis is still avaiable, the Spurs wanted to sign Bourousis in the past, EJBB says sign him and give Dirk some more help, Zaza is not enough, Bourousis could help the Mavs in the middle.

-                       - JUNE 24th - SPANISH ACB FINALS - GAME THREE

-            REAL MADRID SWEEP FC BARCELONA 3-0 SERGIO LLULL NAMED MVP

1. Real Madrid 90 FC Barcelona 85 - The top team in Europe this season was Real Madrid, as they won the Euroleague title over Olympiacos and today sweep the Spanish ACB Finals 3-0 versus FC Barcelona, with soon to be Houston Rockets PG Sergio Llull being named MVP of the finals. Rumors have Llull signing a 3 year 21 million dollar deal with Houston, after he has satisfied his passion to win a Euroleague title with Real Madrid. After his 24 point game in the Real Madrid win of game two, Lull scored 10 points today in the final game and Real Madrid was led by American SG Jaycee Carroll with 19 points, on 7-9 FG, 3-4(3PT), 2-2 FT, while former NBA forward Andres Nocioni and former NBA PG Sergio Rodriguez added 11 points apiece in the win, it was also reported that Rodriguez wants another shot with an NBA club next season.

FC Barcelona was led by Croatian center Ante Tomic with 29 points on amazing 14-15 FG, 1-2 FT, 7 rebounds, 3 blocked shots, as Tomic used his Pau Gasol type frame and post skills to cause damage inside, but again coach Xavier Pascual did not use the great perimeter skills of Croatian SG Mario Hezonja, as the 20 year old kid that went off for 18 points in game one of these ACB finals, on 5-6(3PT), in 25 minutes, only saw 15 minutes in game three off the bench and today got 10 minutes on the floor, in what should be his final game with FC Barcelona, as he is predicted to be a top 8 lottery pick in the June 25th NBA Draft in Brooklyn.  Instead of Hezonja staring the game and letting him do his thing at the top of the key, coach Pascual again went with 32 year old vet SG Brad Oleson, who had a horrible game two, chasing Llull around screens, as Llull went off for 24 points and 5-5 from deep in the first quarter.  Today Oleson played better with 10 points in 31 minutes, on 4-6 FG, 2-3(3PT) and OKC Thunder SG pick Alex Abrines also played well with 16 points, on 4-8 from deep and Tomas Satoransky had 10 points, 8 assists from the PG spot, but FC Barcelona should have also went big minutes with Hezonja and play small ball ALA GSTATE in the NBA on their homecourt, with more wing options, instead of going with two bigs in Tomic and Justin Doellman, who was 4-11 on FG for 12 points, but not playing the explosive Hezonja at the start of the game was just WRONG STRATEGY by coach Pascual, as Hezonja played 10 minutes and might have been thrown out of rythm, by not gettig the start and the NBA draft coming up the next day, so the talented Croatian SG, that will soon THRIVE in the more up-tempo NBA style of play, had an off game of 0-3 FG, 0-2 from deep, but can you blame the kid, when he knows he should be on the court, instead of an older Brad Oleson.

And if it is not bad enough that Hezonja only got 10 minutes on the court, after the game FC Barcelona GM Joan Carles Raventos scheduled a practice for June 25th for the FC Barcelona players under contract, so Mario Hezonja will not be able to get on a plane and have the memory of being in a suit and shaking the hand of Adam Silver as an NBA lottery pick, because Mario Hezonja wants to trim the 2 million Euro buyout down with FC Barcelona, so he can play in the NBA this season, so he and his agent do not want to upset FC Barcelona off anymore than they have to, but TALK ABOUT STICKING IT TO A KID with the best talent on the squad, his minutes were already up and down, now they practice the next day after the Finals, WHAT A JOKE FC BARCELONA !!!!

-                             SERGIO LLULL - 24 PTS LEADS IN WIN

-     SERGIO LLULL 5-5 FROM DEEP IN 1ST QT LEADS REAL MADRID TO 2-0 LEAD

1. Real Madrid 100 FC Barcelona 80 - After a tough 78-72 win by Real Madrid in game one versus FC Barcelona, where talented 20 year old Croatian SG Mario Hezonja brushed off the usual horrible coaching job by head coach Xavier Pasual this season and kept FC Barcelona in game one of the ACB Finals with 18 points in 25 minutes, even though his great offensive skills are sometimes just left on the bench with DNP on the stats sheet, or even worse, Hezonja was given 6 minutes of play in the closeout Semis game 5 versus Unicaja in the first half and scored 8 points, on 3-4 FG and was not seen again in the 2nd half.  That type of horrible coaching hurt coach Xavier Pascual in the 2015 Euroleague playoffs in game four versus Olympiacos, as Mario Hezonja got a DNP and FC Barcelona lost 3-1 and did not go to the Euroleague Final Four.

Today in game two of the Spanish ACB Finals, after a great 18 point, 6-10 FG, 5-6 from 3 point land game versus the best team in Europe in 25 minutes, coach Pascual did not start Mario Hezonja and only gave the talented Croatian 15 minutes of play, rather giving 32 year old SG Brad Oleson 21 minutes on the court who was 0-3 from 3 point land, 1 point in the game and was the guy chasing Houston Rockets 2nd round pick Sergio Llull around screens, as Llull went off for 5-5 from deep in the 1st quarter and led Real Madrid with 24 points in 29 minutes, on 8-11FG, 6-8(3PT), 2-2 FT.   If Oleson getting 21 minutes is not bad enough, French SG Edwin Jackson also got 21 minutes on the court and shot 1-4 FG, 1-2 FT, 3 points, while the YOUNGEST PLAYER EVER IN THE ACB FINALS TO SCORE 18 POINTS, Mario Hezonja only got 15 minutes of run, scoring 5 points, on 2-3 FG, 1-2(3PT), ARE YOU KIDDING ME coach Pascual, how can your best talent on the roster not get the start after he kept FC Barcelona in game one of the Finals and how can Brad Oleson & Edwin Jackson get more minutes on the court.     The best shot FC Barcelona has to win in this series, is to let Hezonja get shots versus Real Madrid and be the main man at the top of the key, as he has showed in 3 games versus Real Madrid, 22 Points, 15 points and 18 points, that he can score versus the best squad in Europe.

Sergio Llull and his 24 points got help from former NBA SF Rudy Fernandez with 17 points, on 7-10 FG, 3-3(3PT), while former NBA center Gustavo Ayon added 12 points, on 6-10 FG in 15 minutes.  FC Barcelona was led by American PF Justin Doellman with 24 points, on 8-12 FG, 3-5(3PT), 5-5 FT and was followed by Utah Jazz draft pick Ante Tomic with 11 points, while Wizards draft pick Tomas Satoransky added 10 points, but if FC Barcelona want to get a win in this finals, coach Pascual needs to use his best wing talent Mario Hezonja and forget his age by going with vets, WAKE UP COACH PASCUAL.
