    Indeed. 12 friendly games + Eurobasket 2013, which is going to be at least 5 games if Lithuania doesn't qualify out of the first group, but I anticipate that they are one of their group favorites so I'm thinking it will be at least 12 + 5 + 5 (2nd stage) = at least 22 games for D-Mo in a span of 47 days.

    That's like 1/3 of a lockout season :eek:

    I hope he stays healthy and able to play another 100+ games in the NBA season.

    its probably cuz coach wants to see how each differnt player looks like, so he will use few players a lot in 1 match and then next day he will use different group of players. Dmo will prolly get 35mins in one match and then next day he will get 8minutes.

    I'm surprised FIBA hasn't done anything about this. Looks like Sternball/Silverball is leaking into europe as well.

    Not sure if trolling? But that's how that one country is called - 'Bosnia & Herzegovina'.

    He's not starting and there's Kleiza coming off the bench too. I think it's good.
