Covering the EuroBasket 2022 for FIBA at Tbilisi gave me the opportunity of writing some fun pieces in between the everyday rush of game reports. A few I would like to keep here.

On Georgia going with a Big Three of Sandro Mamukelashvili, Goga Bitadze and Giorgi Shermadini, three guys 6’11 or taller:

On the extra-physical Belgian Lions who are used to making your life unbearable and want Europe’s respect. I’ll note that they went on the record with these quotes before the win over Spain:
