Woohoo, Crvena Zvezda Diva lost again in ABA Adriatic league. In Game 2, Zadar topped Crvena Zvezda Diva with final score of 98-81.

Even after two games and two defeats we may say that this start of ABA Adriatic league season for Crvena Zvezda Diva is terrible.

Team with great roster, team who should be one of the main favorites for ABA Adriatic league title, after two played games have score of 0 wins and 2 losses.

What’s going on? Is Coach Milivoje Lazic really main problem? Most of basketball fans in Serbia believe that he is the weakest link in this team.

Of course this is real challenge for him, since team is very good, great roster but obviously something is missing. Maybe discipline?

Of course, it is always easy to blame coaches for bad results but let’s be honest, Crvena Zvezda Diva invested much money in this team and lost two games against underdogs.

In game 1 just 3 days ago, they lost against Split who is in very hard financial situation or even better say team without any financials. But, with great team spirit and fighting as a hell, they wins this expensive stars.

Even after this game 1, spectators in Split, mostly fans of Basketball club Split, were singing a song “It is not all about money” at the end of game. Great message to Crvena Zvezda Diva.

Today, Crvena Zvezda Diva lost again against team with terrible financial situation, Zadar. Even Zadar caused a lot of problems to Partizan mt:s in Game 1, I believe that both teams Partizan mt:s and Crvena Zvezda Diva are better, but it seems that it is not enough.

Serbian Basketball is in big crisis, demonstrated on EuroBasket 2013 qualifications as they qualified hardly for EuroBasket 2013 in Slovenia.

It seems that this crisis is also obvious in club’s competitions at this moment.

We will see what will happen in next games and if players and coach learned anything from these two defeats.

Congratulations to Zadar to another one great game and first win in this season of ABA Adriatic league.
