Bosnians, to stay the pillars of neighbouring basketball federations? - Feb 3, 2013

Charles's Articles

KSBIH has lost over the last 20 years more than 100 basketball players who have been aquired by other basketball federations. There are very sounding names among them like Teoman Alibegovic, Zoran Planinic, Bojan Bogdanovic, Damir Mulaomerovic, Vladimir Radmanovic and many others who have left big footprints in European and NBA basketball.

Since Harun Mahmutovic, general secretary of KSBIH took over, KSBIH acts much more professionally and tries hard to return some of the younger players who are currently playing for other countries under the Bosnian flag. The history of these players is different. Many of them fled during the war with their families to keep their lives. Others left after the war in order to help their families in BIH to survive the post-war period. None of the neighbouring countries who tried to divide up BIH has faced such dramatic demographic and economic consequences due to war.

The neighbouring federations are still systematically drafting players from BIH and a quick glance on the Croatian, Serbian and Slovenian roster will give you an idea how strong BIH could be when it would return some of these players. Even teams like Slovenia, Turkey are scouting players in BIH and naturalise them by letting them know that it might affect the playtime in their clubs.

Many many Bosnia-native players have been called up by Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia even they have for each position 10+ players who are trying to make it in the roster.
These federations are not trying to fill problematical roster spots but try to weaken BIH wherever it is possible.

But we most not blame only Serbia, Slovenia and Croatia for their strategy but also the clubs in BIH which are trailing both in management skills, club infrastructure and coaching staff education. KK Bosna, the legendary yugoslav powerhouse is light-years away from Adriatic league after years of amateurism and fraud. The same problem had also Sloboda and in smaller extents Zenica. However Sloboda has understood that the production of young prospects with the help of experienced players/coaches is the only way. So it seems that there is some light at the end of the tunnel. Bosna however dreams how to pay their debts in order to get unblocked by FIBA and to regain its ability to hire foreign players.
KK Bosna and Sloboda Tuzla had a strategic importance for Bosnian basketball. During this period most of the young talents in BIH have left BIH.

In two weeks we will know more whether BIH can finally protect its basketball jewels.

Division I Round 1 of Semi-Finals. Wins for Igokea and Bosna-Royal - 12 hours ago
Igokea - Sloboda Tuzla 86-85 Igokea nipped visiting Sloboda Tuzla to take 1-0 lead in the semis.
