After the first 5 games..

1. ZALGIRIS KAUNAS (5-0): Plaza has change the DNA in a team which is the more traditional representatives of the European basketball school (Lietuva) with the most particular characteristics. Strong team-play from the American players. We will wait to see Zalgiris's character after the first bad results..

2. BARCELONA (5-0): Barcelona isn't super, but plays every night for 8/10. That is very important for this period..

3. REAL MADRID (4-1): Has the potential to be much better in a month, especially if they solve the problem in the 5 spot..

4. MACCABI TEL AVIV (5-0): David Blatt presents a modern competitive team with lower budget. Fresh legs, very good ball-movement the main features of Maccabis effective offense. However, the groups level helps a little bit..

- ANADOLU EFES (3-2): Mahmuti gave direction to Anadolu's game but the Turkish have to reduce their ups & downs in a 40-minute game. Farmar justifies his salary and puts a serious candidate for the season's MVP.

6. KHIMKI (3-2): Khimki has by far the best assists/turnovers ration in the league. Very important.. However, teams mentality is still questionable..

-FENERBAHCE (3-2): Fener has great potential but Pianigiani has to find chemistry in the frontcourt. Maybe with an add in the 4 spot.. (?)

8.BESIKTAS (3-2): Congratulations to Kunter.. Very militant team with defense intensity and many role players. Jerrels gets our vote in the MVP discussion so far..

9. CSKA MOSCOW (4-1): Messina has a lot of work. CSKA is very predictable with its halfcourt offense and several players showing adjusting problems in this style. Maybe the legendary coach has to start thinking about a faster tempo. Just look at the roster..

10. UNICAJA (4-1): Best rebounding team in the league.. Not bad. But, it will be a surprise if Unicaja continues like this..

11. OLYMPIAKOS (3-2): The champs bought time, winning in Milano, to work and put Powell in their game. Great performance from Kyle Hines.

-PANATHINAIKOS (2-3): Panathinaikos faces some problems at the moment. First of all, the Greens are the team with the most mistakes in the contest. There are first at 2pt % (targeting Schortsanitis in the paint) they receive many fouls but they are last in FT%.. Panathinaikos needs two players now and thats the reason they are on the market..

-CANTU (2-3): Trinchieri needs immediately a point guard. Cantu plays better in the last games. Great performance from Aradori..

14. EMPORIO ARMANI (2-3): EA7 is until now the Euroleague's underachiever.. Big investment, bad coaching.. The worst thing is that Scariolo has lost his players's trust..

15. ALBA BERLIN (2-3): Good work from Obradovic. Alba show declining odds the last couple of weeks but they are still in the game..

-MONTEPASCHI SIENA (2-3): They could be easily in 1-4 or 4-1.. Best offense in the league. Montepaschi needs a dominant undersized 5, since Ress gives his best but he is not a center. Brown puts huge numbers but is he the ideal point guard to run the teams offense..? Banchi's team wins and loses from the 3-pt line..

17. CAJA LAMBORAL (1-4): Huge & downs in the 40 minutes.. Simply you don't know what to expect..


18. LIETUVOS RITAS (1-4): They have serious offensive problem due to the absence of a true point guard in the roster.

- OLIMPIJA LJUBLJANA (1-4): The regulator of the group..

20.BROSE BASKETS (2-3): I still don't like Bambergs performance. Bad chemistry.

21.CEDEVITA (1-4): They have improved a lot reaching one step before a big win at SEF. Maybe the level of the group is too much for Cedevita, but lets wait..

22. CHALON (1-4): Chalon is little bit naive. Todays game in Poland can be crucial. They still have chances.

23. PARTIZAN (0-5): Practice at 7 o'clock in the morning.. Is it enough? Dule delate to replace Thomas.

24. PROKOM (1-4): 1-4 is a very good record compared to the teams performance..
