Nike Hoops Summit Video Preview

April 9th, 2008 · 2 Comments

This Saturday will be played the already traditional Nike Hoop Summit in Portland. I have selected a couple of Internet clips of the European based players that will participate in this year’s edition.

Let’s start with the guards where we have the Argentinean 1989 born Diego Gerbaudo who is actually playing for Real Madrid. You see here a clip of his best plays during the Hospitalet Tournament 2006.

For the Lithuanian guard Zygimantas Janavicius, it was pretty impossible to find good clips on the net where he is the main part of it. So I let it like that and about the next guy, Torgrim Sommerfeldt, I can not tell you anything as I never heard even his name until I read the roster of the World Select Team. He is however considered as the best Norwegian basketball talent for ages.

The next prospect on the list is Serge Ibaka, the Congolese forward actually playing in Spain. About him, you find some interesting clips on the net with his actual LEB Oro team of Hospitalet.

Coming to the next big guy, we have the German PF Tim Ohlbrecht who is actually playing for Brose Baskets Bamberg. Here is a clip I made of him when he played with his U19 team in last year’s Final Four of the German Youth Championship NBBL.

To find a good video of the French PF Alexis Ajinca is also pretty hard. You can check out this clip where he is represented several times with what he does best: blocking shots. Of course, there is also this clip but it does not show all what he can do.

Finally, the last player from Europe on the World Roster is the Serbian giant Boban Marjanovic. Unfortunately, I could not find any videos about him either.
