In this week’s edition of the ‘cast we put the proverbial bow on a notable FIBA U19 World Championship with a half-dozen interviews (they’re brief, we swear) that Mr. Hein recorded amid writing up the Prague games for the FIBA folks.
Pitching in their two cents on subjects such as the competition itself, the future (particularly intriguing for Team Australia’s Dante Exum, who’s facing a decision of colleges if any at all and new BallinEurope fave Vasilje Micic, about to try and crack the national team roster for Serbia) and Dario Saric are Exum and Micic; Team USA’s Jahlil Okafor and assistant coach Shaka Smart; Denis Krestinin of Lithuania; and Team Serbia’s Nikola Milunitov.
And invariably, there’s other basketball and sports patter on “Taking the Charge”… Hein and yours truly mentally dispose of Dwight Who, praise the offseason moves of Olympiacos, and wonder about Zalgiris Kaunas dropping its affiliation with the VTB United League for 2013-14.
The sports movie up for review this week is The Damned United, a fantastic 2009 British production about if-not-mad-at-least-a-bit-tweaked genius football manager Brian Clough and his odd spell with Leeds United for 44 days in the mid-1970s. See it if you care at all about soccer/football, sports or really good dramas.
