– Superstar Dennis Schröder will not be there, and many other highly talented German basketball players will also be missing. Nonetheless, people in Nuremberg are very happy that the German national basketball team will tour on November 25, 2021. The World Cup qualifier against Estonia is the premiership of new national coach Gordon Herbert, and must be a Franconian as well.
What? When? where?
Not long ago, the German national team was a guest at Nuremberg. In 2006 a certain Dirk Nowitzki played against Canada at the Nuremberger Versicherung Arena and in 2003 and 2004 the German Basketball Association (DBB) also stopped here. After a 15-year break, Germany’s best basketball players will once again be in town, now of course without Nowitzki. At the Kia Metropole Arena, the new living room of the Nuremberg Falcons, it will take place on November 25, 2021 from 7 pm as part of the qualification for the 2023 World Cup against Estonia.
Who is playing for Germany?
good question New national coach Gordon Herbert has called on 45 players over the past few weeks, but all of them have expressed their motivation to play for the national team. The problem is that the NBA and the Euroleague, the main European competition, have no regard for international match windows during the season. The fact that the best basketball players from Germany come to Nuremberg is not true. In the DBB they speak of the “best possible team”, made up of the best German players in the Bundesliga in recent years. No They are employed by FC Bayern Munich or Alba Berlin. Or play in the NBA, like Dennis Schroder (Boston Celtics), his friends Daniel Theis (Houston Rockets) or the Wagner Brothers (Orlando Magic).
Why should you watch it anyway?
For real basketball fans, of course, this question does not arise for everyone: because the national team has shown in recent years that they can do a lot without big stars. Without Schröder, Theis or Maodo Lee, the team’s game would undoubtedly be a little less spectacular, but in the end commitment and passion were on the side. In the absence of the most prominent representatives, other Gordon Herbert’s premiership seeks to prove that he is also a candidate for the 2022 European Championship or the 2023 World Cup in his own country. And while the league is dormant, at least in Germany, all those who haven’t already featured in a Falcons home game this season may know Nuremberg’s chic new field.
Does the franc, perhaps even Nuremberg represent?
Of course, this cannot yet be assessed reliably, but the chances are very good that at least two or three Swiss francs are involved. Christian Sengfelder (Broz Bamberg) has worked his way up to one of the best forces in the Bundesliga over the years and until recently was always set when either Maximilian Kleber (Dallas Mavericks) or Danilo Barthel (Fenerbahçe Istanbul) were stopped. Was. Seungfelder’s teammate at Bamberg, Kenneth Ogbe, who once wore the Franconian Vicher’s jersey, would also be a candidate, and center Andreas Seyferth (Medi Bayreuth) was repeatedly nominated for qualifying games under Herbert’s predecessor Heinrich Rodl. it was done. Nuremberg Bastian Doreth (Medi Bayreuth) has not recently appeared for the national team, but never officially ended his national team career. A return to his hometown is not entirely ruled out, but rather less likely.
