Well i did like the tigers until this press conference. Bunch of sooks they are. The better team won on the night. The team that wanted the win more got the win.

What do you think about Westovers comments JR? A few bad calls, a few trick shots so it wasnt like we got beat? - is he serious?

funny thing is that i remember one trick shot and a lot of out hustling the Tigers the rest of the game. sore losers, i reckon. makes it hard to respect them.

JR,

Send the "one-handed running triple in a game situation with the shot clock running out" HORSE shot to Aaron Bruce and get him to beat that!

JR does his trick shots in game time! hehehe

I am highly critical of the Tigers and their attitude after the game - I will be talking about this more on this up coming episode of the OT.

Pepu Hernandez was asked by the greek site sport24.gr about the rumors that circulated regarding his negotiations with a National Team.

He seemed to be expecting the question and he said that he is actually in negotiations with the basketball federation of a specific country but that country is not Greece. He said that he never had discussions with the Greek Federation at any point in time.
