Former Belgian NT players Marc Deheneffe and Daniel Goethals talk about the Lions' campaigns of 1993 and 2011 - Aug 11, 2011

Daniel
Goethals

For the first time after 18 years, the Belgian Lions will participate in a FIBA European Championship Final Round to be held in Lithuania from August 31st to September 18th, 2011. Eurobasket.com interviewed two former Belgian Lions who did take part in the 1993 European Championship which was held in Germany. Former Belgian NT's forward Marc Deheneffe, who will be the official consultant for BeTV (a Belgian private TV broadcaster) at the next EuroBasket 2011, as well as former Belgian Lions' center Daniel Goethals, now owning a sport events company (see www.bigdan12.com) and coaching the women's team of BC Dexia Namur Capitale involved in FIBA Eurocup, accepted to answer a few questions about the Belgian Lions of 1993 compared with the ones of 2011.

Here is this exclusive interview:

Bert Larsimont - Eurobasket.com (EB): According to you, Marc and Daniel, what are the strengths (especially) and weaknesses (perhaps) of the Belgian Lions right now?

Marc Deheneffe (M.D.): As far as the strengths are concerned, they have had the chance to do a qualifying round campaign with a lot of supporters to push them where they are now. They have become aware of what they can achieve and now serve the team. The confirmation that Faison and Mbenga can play together for the team is also a plus. All players involved (in the preparation campaign) are motivated and we do not face difficulties to have or not the best players. Actually, following the example of the staff led by Casteels and Stas, everybody does his best in order to go as far as possible.
One weakness? Let us hope that the preparation campaign will be complete enough to allow the Lions to reach the second round at the next EuroBasket 2011.

Daniel Goethals (D.G.): Assets: experienced players who are playing a bit everywhere in Europe and who are currently in their best years (age 25 to 32)!
Weaknesses: the lack of knowledge and point of reference in the FIBA European Championship, after so many years without having taken part in a final round!

EB: Had the preparation campaign in Orlando brought something positive for the Belgian Lions in 1993?

M.D.: Orlando in 1993 had not only been a unique moment for the Lions (scrimmage game against Shaquille ONeal and his NBA pals) but also one opportunity to train far from home during two weeks and learn to know each other on and off the court. Basketball plays and reflexes were efficient and we had a staff under the management of Leon Wandel who had boosted and given some pride to the players as they deserved it. Moreover, Jack Ramsay perfectly completed the staff by giving us his excellent tips, a big plus for all the players.

D.G.: A lot of cohesion and, above all, the possibility to improve physical condition and tactics! But does such a camp necessarily have to take place that far to be successful?
Thanks to Didier Mbenga's contacts, I think it is a matter of opportunity! But a camp in Spain or elsewhere can also offer this kind of thing...
For the players, it is always interesting to see the facilities and resources available in the United States.

EB: Both of you know the international basketball scene very well. What had the Belgian NT been missing for so many years (18) in order to reach the most prestigious European basketball tournament?

M.D.: As a matter of fact, our league (the Ethias league) has become a competition in which very few Belgian players have had an opportunity to express themselves since the Bosman judgement. In 1993, the top players of the Division I mainly made up the national team which meant therefore that all players met very often and knew each other. Furthermore, Maes Pils Mechelen was then involved in the Euroleague and played the best European teams. That is important for the players. Despite the fact that some current players have an important role in some European clubs, they do not have the opportunity to play much at home. Meanwhile, the Spanish example with some local players being present in the clubs is positive and we should undoubtedly get inspired by this.

D.G.: According to me, the organization and a staff with full powers are the first things! Leon Wandel proved it in the past and Jacques Ledure does it now...
I do not think that the players available between 1994 and 2009 were necessarily not as good as the ones of today, but they were not well supported and the national team was not a priority for the federation!
My opinion is that for both main selections (women's and men's alike), we need to create cells only dedicated to these teams.
