RECOVERY: Zoran Dragic of EA7 Emporio Armani Milan had his season cut short by injury in the Italian League game last week, and he got big support from all around, including his former teammate Petteri Koponen of FC Barcelona Lassa, and his Slovenian countryman, Baskonia's Jaka Blazic. Meanwhile, Darussafaka’s Marcus Slaughter, who missed his last 15 games, is working hard to make his way back to the EuroLeague floors.
HAPPY 18th: Another Slovenian, Luka Doncic of Real Madrid had his birthday today. It was special, because EuroLeague's youngest superstar just turned 18 years of age. And his birthday present? One red “Fićo”!
BROTHERS & OLD FRIENDS: After the game in which they played each other, former teammates Bogdan Bogdanovic of Fenerbahce and Leo Westermann of Zalgiris, went out for a dinner in Kaunas. Meanwhile in Barcelona, CSKA duo Nando De Colo and Aaron Jackson met an old friend, coach Pere Romero who they played for during their days in Spain.
