Eurobasket 2022 It was entertaining to say the least, but the tournament ended without Luka Doncic and the Slovenian national team even making it to the medal round. Doncic should consider avoiding burnout next time he sits out an international game, considering the wear and tear he’s had the past two summers. Dallas Mavericks? of Mavs outsider crew discussed that and much, much more in today’s episode.
In the EuroBasket final, Spain won the first place after defeating France. Juancho Hernangomez Bo Cruz, also known as the Netflix hit “Hustle,” continued to excel in the EuroBasket finals, earning the MVP award for the match. Willy Hernangomez won the EuroBasket MVP (awarded by the Mavs and German legend Dirk Nowitzki) to tie a bow on the fairytale. The Biebs and Reese deliver what has been proven during an incredibly entertaining EuroBasket run.
On a fun note, Willy wore number 14 (Dirk’s number in international play, which was retired to start the EuroBasket game in Germany) and Juancho wore number 41 (Dirk’s NBA number, of course), making this tournament even more so in Germany. Special. I believe Germany should have had FIBA break their rules to retire Dirk’s number.
Wiley and Juancho are NBA players and will be looking to build on their success from EuroBasket, but there were plenty of other players without NBA contracts looking to impress teams. In this episode, the boys discuss five players who should have entered the league at some point. Either of them could end up in Dallas.?
Sticking with the Eurobasket theme, Biebs and Reese talked about Luka Doncic. Doncic lost in the Eurobasket in their last game (an embarrassing loss to Poland). There was talk on Twitter about whether or not Luca should play in these games. Biebs and Reese weigh in on this topic.
