Euroleague CEO Jordi Bertomeu was in Italy for Meet the Best meeting.
And he had some words about FIBA calendar.
“The FIBA calendar proved to be wrong in any competition they have organized. From the National Team windows in the middle of the season till organizing the World Cup one year before the Olympics.
Fiba should make a deep reflection about that looking at how many players dropped from their National Teams. The logic says to return to World Cup in even years. But there still is the problem of National Team windows. It is right that the national teams play some games at home. Our proposal is concentrate the games in the first half of July”.
