    From FIBA:

    While indeed there was a timekeeping operations error during the 4th quarter of the Game, the TBF failed to establish in their protest, as per the Official Basketball Rules, that had it not been for the timekeeping operations error, a different result would have certainly materialized. In consequence, TBF’s protest, objecting the result of the game, was dismissed.
    So let me get this straight in my mind: FIBA admits that 22 seconds came off the clock in a game that was decided by one basket until protests and free throw shooting took over in the last 10 seconds. But the Turkish basketball federation has failed to establish that timekeeping affected the outcome. How does this even possibly make sense?

    It's self-evident that if both teams have 2 or 3 more possessions, that game would have been different. If there was ever a game to line up and play the last four minutes again (without a crowd to throw things on the court), this was it.

    FIBA doesn't deserve to have NBA players on their teams. They're unethical and won't clean up their game. The NBA owners should cease doing business with them ASAP.

    By the way, here's a link to the Georgian Federation's official response to the Turkish coach and the reported altercation in the locker room.

    Alpy is going nuts through 3 quarters vs Belgium. 17/5/5 buddy even worked in a Dirk fadeaway! LOL

    Sengun dominated Belgium in every possible way. Just unstoppable.

    People who think he'll just be a 'good role player' in the NBA have to open their eyes.
    The difference of impact with other NBA players in the Turkish national team (Korkmaz, Osman: who are actual role players) is huge.

    This was a very encouraging game, the best he's played so far in this summer tournament. We saw some of this midrange stuff last year and I really hope he continues to improve in that area and become more consistent. I don't remember off the top of my head but I'm pretty sure the percentage on 2 point jumpers was really bad last year. I think it's really important for post players to be able to hit those shots.

    This was another dominant game against a team without any NBA players, though, so we're still in that "can he do it in the NBA" territory.

    Since Sengun now has a Gucci and Valentino collaboration bag on offense, the talk is strictly 'he is not a rim protector'. What do you need rim protectors for?

    To protect the paint from the little guy going in. what if I told you that Jabari and Eason will disrupt and prevent those guys from even getting into the paint.
    In reality, even with elite rim protectors the elite guard/sf will still get theirs. It's what they do.
    I think his ability to put guys like Giannis in the popcorn machine, along with his elite vision and hustle D will negate him not having the wingspan of a Pterosaurs. And we have the whole year to see it to fruition

    And his wingspan isn’t even bad for a 6’9/6’10 player

    It seems like the midrange shot is there to stay. Last year he was good in the paint(40.4% in the paint(non-ra) on 1.6 attempts per game), and bad outside the paint on very low number of attempts (23.5% on .2 attempts per game). The main problem was not he was shooting bad, he was passing up open shots because he did not have confidence. Even when he took the shot, it wasn't a smooth, decisive body mechanics.

    I am guessing his 1 midrange shot in 5 games last year will increase to 1 midrange per game.

    * I don't know what the non-ra means above in the paint stats. Anyone have an idea?

    Yeah, he shot very little midrange, and the percentage was terrible (sub-40%). He really needs to do better.

    I've seen this take mentioned by several here and I'm not hating, but he never schooled Giannis. In either of the games. I don't think he scored on him once. He frustrated Cousins to the point they sat him if my memory serves me correctly. Portis couldn't stop him either. But he didn't match up with the freak.
