2012 - 2013 league

In an article I posted in March 2012, I have noted that having 3 rounds in the regular season might have been a good measure towards improvement. I am glad that indeed this has taken place and I believe this is a good step.


As known the 2012-2013 league is subject to important changes. The league will be consisted of 8 teams and the regular season will take part in 3 rounds. During the 1st two rounds teams will battle against each other as usual, whereas the 3rd round will be based on teams position on the board. The 1st six teams will go through the play-offs as usual with the 1st two teams on the board moving automatically to the semifinals. The team finishing at the 7th place will not take part at the playoffs, whereas the team finishing 8th will move to the 2nd division. The 4th will matchup against the 5th and the 3rd against the 6th in a best of 3 games. The winner of 4-5 will then matchup against the 1st on the board and the winner of 3-6 against the 2nd on the board. Semifinals and finals will be in a best of 5 games.

However, in March I have also commented on the fact that a few teams have stepped into the playoffs without foreigners something that impacted on the quality of the league. I hope this year we will see all teams playing with a full roster at the playoffs and I hope the federation will take measures to make this happen.

Note to National team players

It is true that the results of the National Team are not what we have expected. I have noticed a few of your comments and I have talked to a few people, therefore I would like to say a few things.


I am aware of the effort made by Tonis Constantinides and the hard work he has put into the team during the summer, therefore I wouldn't blame him. After all these are the players he has to play with. There are no other Cypriot players. Cypriot basketball has taken the downslope.

The problem lies in much more depth and on this article I would like to pay my attention on two aspects.

First, the fact that Cypriots are not taking much time in the local league is indeed a problem. This obviously affects their effort in the national team. How can they compete if they do not have enough games?
But really, whose fault is this? Four years ago Cypriots were about to go on a strike to restrict the unlimited landing of Bosman players. Out of a sudden and for a strange reason nothing happened. So this cannot be an excuse anymore. They had their chance. Now it is too late!

Second, a lot is being said the about everybody else's blame, but it is time to give players their share of the blame. Taking a look at the statistics in the first six games, I would like to highlight a few important points:

1) Cypriot players have only succeeded in 62 out of a total of 110 free throws (56%). They missed a total of 48 free throws. As a matter of fact, 8 out of 10 National Team players have below 65% behind the free throw line. In my understanding a free throw is defined as an unimpeded shot at the basket from the free-throw line. Unacceptable!!!

2) Cypriot players have an average of 20 turnovers per game.

3)Cypriot players have only succeeded in 22 out of 98 attempted 3-point shots (22%). What is this.....!!!

4)Cypriot players have only succeeded in 104 out of 234 attempted 2-point shots (44%).

Based on the above statistics there is no much room for excuses. There is no excuse for missing 48 free throws, or missing 76 three - pointers. Nobody expects the National team to beat Croatia for example. But we expect at least the players to give all they have.

It is not the coach who makes the shots, it is not me, it is not anyone else. It is the players themselves.

To end, I would like to note that it is about time for the players themselves to leave excuses at the side and take their part of the blame.

Start playing some basketball!!!



You should take this article as a friendly effort from our side to help.
