In the world FC Bayern Munich has a reputation and is a household name in Germany, the way Heinz Ketchup is in the United States, Iberia airlines is in Spain, Ferrari is in Italy or IKEA is in Sweden. However in Germany when uttering the word FC Bayern Munich, it is Soccer and one usually affiliates the 22 German meisterschaften, 15 cup wins, the world class players that have graced the red and white jersey like Franz Beckenbauer, Karl Heinz Rummenigge, Gerd Mueller, Oliver Kahn, Lothar Matthus, the sometime minor scandals that has given the club FC Hollywood status or the famous Uli Hoeness Wutrede at the 2007-2008 stock holders meeting where his head was as red as a bolied lobster. FC Bayern Munich and basketball in the same breath in the past was about as distant as Heidi Klum and Seal are now. However since this season, Basketball is back in the first division since their last visit in 1986-1987 and with the expertise coaching from Dirk Bauermann and ultimate Bayern fan Uli Hoeness giving the needed financial support, the organization is looking to become an FC Barcelona in the Beko BBL sometime down the road. However the route in the direction of a FC Barcelona seems to have taken a severe wrong turn and landed in Sitges (Beach resort near Barcelona) and at the moment the basketball team led by ex German national head coach Dirk Bauermann is about as far away from FC Barcelona as British tennis ace Andy Murray is from winning a Grand Slam event. The FC Bayern Munich bosses never predicted a title in their first season, but were expecting to belong to the top teams and be a force in the Beko BBL playoffs. FC Bayern Munich has been up and down in the last months and if they keep it up, may get gobbled up by the competiton and be in the Munich beer gardens in May instead of the Beko BBL arenas. One cant say that FC Bayern Munich is only playing bad. They had good efforts against Oldenburg and BG Goettingen. A team like Munich just cant become a title team from today to tomorrow. This takes a lot of development, something that Bamberg has behind them. I am sure that we will see a totally different team when the playoffs start. They just have to continue to find themselves something which has taken longer due to injuries. Every player has the ability to score 20 points or more. The team just cant mislead themselves. I still see FC Bayern Munich as a serious title candidate, stressed Walter Tiger Tuebingen forward Ruben Spoden.

For all those that were born after the first man stepped on the moon, a memory of FC Bayern Munich playing in the first German basketball league will be absent. The last time FC Bayern Munich won a German first division basketball title, the Green Bay Packers won Super Bowl 2, Martin Luther King was assassinated, famous American TV show 60 minutes made its debut on CBS and is still on today, Led Zeppelin make their first Live performance in England and famous Croatian basketball player Toni Kukoc was born as was lovable American actor who you talking about Willis Gary Coleman. The year was 1968 as Bayern Munich won their last title which was a cup. They were also Bundesliga champion in 1954 and 1955. Since the Bundesliga cup win, basketball has been in the shadow of the soccer team moving down and back up in 1974 and then going back to the second Bundesliga in 1982. They were back in the top division in 1987, but returned back down in 1989. Then in 1993, the team was in the Regionaliga. In 1995, 1999 and 2004, the team found itself back in the second Bundesliga, but they never were able to get back into the first Bundesliga as money and quality players were missing. In 2009-2010, 23,000 members from the club Bayern Munich voted and agreed that the basketball department had to be financially supported so that they could return back to the BEKO BBL. In the 2010-2011 PRO A season Bayern Munich plowed through the competition with new head coach Dirk Bauermann, German national players Steffen Hamann and Demond Greene and locker room motivation magnate Darius Hall.

FC Bayern Munich not only have brought in experienced basketball players, but with head coach Dirk Bauermann as the Beko BBL version of Phil Jackson who has won 9 Beko BBL titles, seven with Bayer Leverkusen and two with the Brose Baskets Bamberg. And one should not forget his experience that he brings with his coaching duty as German national coach from 2003-2011 leading Germany to a Silver medal at the 2005 European championships. With a budget of seven million Euro, Bauermann has that kid feeling of being able to go into Fao Schwartz in New York city and shop until he drops for the right players. Bauermann knows that he will have a new kind of pressure that he never felt before. There is nothing less accepted than success with FC Bayern Munich. We want to be in the top four teams. We want to play our best basketball when it counts. Titles arent won in October, warned Dirk Bauermann. The club did a good job not doing a total house cleaning, but keeping a core of guys from the 2011 PRO A championship team. German national players Steffen Hamann and Demond Greene were kept. They may not be the youngest, but still possess special Beko BBL quality. Aleksandar Nadjfeji is 35, but with four Beko BBL titles wants to add some more with Munich, Darius Hall can still give that big smile and sneer to dazzle you and can give valuable minutes from the bench and young German Bastian Doreth who is being groomed to take over for Steffen Hamann down the road. The club added six top players with three German national players. Jan Jagla returns back to the Beko BBL after playing shortly for the Artland Dragons in 2005, Phillip Schwethelm continues to develop and shines with his defense and shooting and German wunder kind Robin Benzing who is looking to make a further step in the Beko BBL in his third season after not being drafted by the NBA. The team also added Je Kel Foster who is their best one on one player and can be explosive and is a very consistent and reliable player. Ben Hansborough is a Beko BBL rookie and should have some stories about his NBA brother Tyler Hansborough, but was let go at the end of 2011. FC Bayern Munich already suffered some growing pains as ex NBA player Ruben Boumtje Boumtje declared his retirement on account of heart disease and Sharod Ford left the team because of personal reasons. However the team hauled in Chevon Mr chevy Troutman who didnt need much time to adjust as he belongs to the top centers in the league after only 8 games. The team also brought in strong big man Jared Homan who last played in Italy. We have a roster that can beat any team in Germany. Key will to form a team out of good individual players, warned FC Bayern Munich sport director Marko Pesic.

Despite basketball critics blasting FC Bayern Munich for getting big names not necessarily meaning that it will play team basketball, the Bavarian club has a 12-10 record and rest in 7th place and would have a playoff date with ratiopharm Ulm if the playoffs started tomorrow. The club started off with a tough 80-76 loss in Bonn, but then found their rhythm winning four games in a row against some lesser teams, but were able to beat Braunschweig. The team lost two of the last three games against playoff aspiring teams Oldenburg and Artland Dragons before their game against Frankfurt last November. Since their last meeting, FC Bayern Munich has been up and down at 6-7 and not playing anything like their soccer team is. In this span. There biggest wins were against Oldenburg 102-71 and a big win at home against ratiopharm Ulm where they took revenge for their loss in Ulm earlier this season where American Keaton Nankivil sent them home without their leather pants. They continue to be strong at home at 11-1, but very vulnerable on the road at 1-9. They average 78 points a game and give up 75 points. They have improved their defense from the first nine games where they gave up an average 80 points per game. Their strength is shooting the ball. They have so many guys that can fill it up with Greene, Wallace, Schwethelm and Foster. Their defense is ok, but the best bet for a team is too run on them, because they have bigs that dont come back quick enough. They had problems with their pick and roll defense, but we played them before Chevon Troutman came, warned Josh Young. Even though Foster was out done in Overtime by David Holston in the loss at Artland, Foster belongs to the top players in the Beko BBL and will lead FC Bayern Munich in tough times. Foster impressed me the most on that team. He isa smart and great shooter and solid on defense. He is just as tough as nails. You have to put Foster in the same trio of Brown, Wood and Holston, warned Josh Young.

The Fraport Skyliners will be looking to get revenge for the bitter 58-57 loss in Munich, where a timely Je'Kel Foster (191-G-83, college: Ohio St.) three pointer and offensive rebounds on missed free throws sealed the win for Dirk Bauermann and his gang. We have to play defense, play aggressive and execute better on offense and get back on transition defense, warned Quantez Robertson. Frankfurt will have to forget those last few minutes in the fourth quarter and stay focused mentally for 40 minutes too. Key will be shutting off any mental lapses that may occur, warned Michael Thompson. If there is one guy who wants to win as badly as Brose Baskets Bamberg manager Wolfgang Heyder does than it is Skyliner captain Marius Nolte We have to play concentrated for 40 minutes. We have to play good team defense and give up no easy baskets, warned Marius Nolte. will need to be awake again in Munich to stop the athletic Chevy. We have to do a very good job defending the paint. Chevon Troutman is a good player. We have to control the back boards, warned Justin Gray. Frankfurt should also follow the 3 quick step to success from Tigers guard Josh Young. Frankfurt has to keep the Munich shooters in check, control the boards and score in transition to have a chance to win, warned Josh Young. We have to stay together, move the ball and play good defense, warned Michael Thompson. The Fraport Skyliners host FC Bayern Munich February 18th.
