SPAIN EUROPEAN BASKETBALL CHAMPION 2015

The "Golden Generation (1999)" of Spanish Basketball have put Spanish Sports back on top after proclaiming this evening the 2015 European Basketball Championship title. Spain defeated Lithuania 80 - 63 in a controlled Final from the Spaniards point of view.

Few gave Spain hopes of going so far after 2 defeats in their difficult Group, which included Serbia & Italy, however the team went from less to more as the competition continued & they won with self believe, pride & with some fabulous Basketball. Its the 4th Euro Final of this group & tonight their 3rd Gold Medal. The win takes Spain directly ( along with Lithuania) into the upcoming 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil.

The player that has taken all the headlines is Spaniard & Chicago Bulls pivot PAU GASOL, who has lead Spain with leadership, sacrifice & with an extraordinary level of Basketball. Pau Gasol was included in the EURO 2016 Ideal 5 & was award MVP of the tournament.


Another Spaniard prized for his extraordinary effort was RODRIGUEZ who was also included in the EURO 2016 Ideal Team. Said this, the triumph is collective as the Spaniards apart for the individual talents mentions rose to the occasion as a unit, a solid bloc.

Lastly congratulations to Lithuania for their tournament & I am sure both will again meet in the future to battle again.
