Coach Dejan Radonjić refused to renew his contract with Red Star, leaving the current ABA league champion without its key figure. He is now on a long list of members that have left the team in the past month, joining players: Jović, Simonović, Gudurić, Jenkins…

Mitrović gets Play of the Night

In my roaming around for some good highlights videos of Round 19, I learned that Crvena zvezda’s captain Luka Mitrović has had the best move of this Euroleague evening.

The young captain who got his title at only 20 (he is 23 now) has had his fair share of injuries, with the last one leaving his game far from the usual level.

Baskonija odučena od košarke

A victory in Vitoria

Košarkaši Crvene zvezde su na gostovanju u Vitoriji upisali važnu pobedu (69:87). Ekipa Dejana Radonjića furiozno je odigrala meč protiv Baskonije, ostavljajući prvotimcima Sita Alonsa samo početak četvrte deonice za disanje.

Zvezda has done it again. This time against home favorite Baskonia, in the city of Vitoria. The final score was 69:87, which gives only so much justice to the match played by the Red and Whites. Fast offensives by first PG Stefan Jović, combined with a more than motivated Ognjen Kuzmić and the 1:5 defense displayed by Branko Lazić were more than enough to secure a win. This result currently leaves Belgrade’s Crvena zvezda as 5th in the Euroleague standings.

Zvezda se časno oprostila od EL

Red Star bids a Euroleague farewell

Crvena zvezda Telekom, izgubila je večeras i treću utakmicu protiv moskovskog CSKA u okviru Top 8 faze Evrolige. Poraz rezultatom 71:78, označio je i kraj učešća crveno-belih u Evroligi. Odličan početak, bio je u kontrastu sa nešto slabijom završnicom, koja ipak nije umanjila ukupni učinak srpske ekipe, znatno skromnijeg budžeta.

Despite an early lead and an active result throughout the match, Red Star lost their final Top 8 match against Moscow’s CSKA, ending their Euroleague series for the season. A strong game from the team lead by coach Dejan Radonjić wasn’t easily overshadowed by Euroleague’s richest squad, as the final result was 78:71 for CSKA.

Crveno-beli preokret u Malagi!

Red Star turns it around in Malaga

Crvena zvezda Telekom, napravila je večeras pravi preokret protiv ekipe Unikahe. Od naizgled izgubljene utakmice, crveno-beli su se potpuno vratili u igru i upisali izuzetno važnu evroligašku pobedu od 78:72. Istorijski prolazak u Top 8, na dohvat je ruke. 

Red Star makes a complete 180, as they leave Malaga with a win against Unicaja. Despite a poor impact in the first half, a change of moral and a strong shooting pace from Marko Simonović, Stefan Jović and Marko Gudurić brings another win to the Belgrade team, as they can almost taste the next stage. The final score was marked at 78:72, and only one win stands between the Serbs and the Top 8.

Kalinić definitivno u Feneru / Nikola Kalinić moving to Fenerbahçe

nikola-kalinic

Doskorašnji košarkaš Crvene zvezde i reprezentativac Srbije, Nikola Kalinić, definitivno će karijeru nastaviti u turskom Fenerbahčeu. Transfer je zvanično potvrđen juče, u iznosu od rekordnih milion evra.  Jedan od najunosnijih u ovom prelaznom roku u Evropi. Kao što je očekivano, novac od transfera Kalinića će biti uložen u kupovinu novih, više nego neophodnih pojačanja ekipe sa Malog Kalemegdana.

Podsećamo, od glavnih nosilaca igre crveno-belih iz prethodne sezone, klub su do sada napustili Boban Marjanović, Čarls Dženkins, Markus Vilijams, dok je više mladih igrača kluba otišlo na domaće pozajmice.

Očekuje se da će najtalentovaniji igrači Zvezdine omladinske škole dobiti zasluženu šansu u prvom timu. Korak koji bi bio veoma važan u daljem uspostavljanju klupske strukture i razvoj mladih igrača kroz različite kategorije kluba.


Now former player of Crvena zvezda and an important member of the Serbian National basketball Team, Nikola Kalinić will definitely be continuing his career in Fenerbahçe. The Turkish team has decided to pay a record 1 million euros for the Serb.  One of the most expensive European transfers of the year, so far. The funds are expected to be used to acquire more than necessary new players, considering that the main fist team members, such as Boban Marjanović, Charles Jenkins and Marcus Williams have left the Belgrade Red and Whites.  Various young players have also left the team on loans, around Serbia.

It is also expected for the most talented players of  Crvena zvezda’s  (Red Star)  youth school to get a well deserved chance in the first team. A step which would be very important in the further establishment of the team’s structure and the development of young players through playing in diverse categories.
