Sexpants gets posterized in that highlight package. Also, that looks like an intense atmosphere in Istanbul.

Almost posted a highlight of him from a few days ago.
Man, that between the legs pass... Jokic does something once and the world wants to copy it.

Also, I find it interesting that EuroLeague copied the NBA’s play-in tournament exactly (though the league is only a single conference)
Why they persist in having short playoff series and a single weekend Final 4 remains a mystery. I swear, sometimes it feels like those leagues over there are allergic to money.

Meanwhile, Adam Silver is like Mr. Krabs from Spongebob over here.
 
Man, of all the EuroLeague games, couldn't they have made that one of the ones that @Conigliaro's Potential got to have the call for?

Nice presence of mind for him to drive rather than heave. Very calm decision-making. And against Real Madrid, no less - defending EuroLeague champs and current leaders, who were undefeated in EuroLeague before tonight.
I actually called the other EuroLeague game that went to overtime on Thursday. Partizan Belgrade games, with 20,000 screaming and singing and chanting fans, really are unlike any basketball you've probably ever seen before...and there was a pretty cool ending as well:

God it's just SO much more watchable than an NBA game, from an officiating perspective. Bothers me every time I watch FIBA play.

- Light contact is let go routinely as long as it's before the shot. They'll call it tight on the actual shot itself, but not a slight bump on a drive.
- This also means hard contests / close-outs don't result in a foul unless you hit the shooter's arm during the shot, so a lot of aggressive stuff happening, and somehow nobody is pulling a James Harden and sticking a foot out, nor flopping to the ground giving an exasperated shrug to the heavens
- The one-handed rim hang after the dunk at 2'56", screaming into the crowd. That is a T 100% of the time in the NBA, and here, nothing - which is way more fun. If I'd just done that, I'd be pretty pumped up too.

Maine Red Claws legend PJ Dozier getting some love out there, too.
