This question is certainly asked by many basketball fans after they were eliminated in the Round of 16 with the Greek favorites. The players themselves do not have a clear answer to this, but they are optimistic about the future. No one has announced the end of the national team.

The successful generation around Satoransky finished seventh at the 2015 European Championships or sixth at the World Championships in China. Historic qualification for the Olympic Games in Tokyo was a huge success, with the choice of Israeli-Czech coach Ronen Ginzburg in ninth place.

What is the future of the Czech national basketball team? The national team players answered themselves.

“We will see what the future holds. We also have to admit that we are no longer the youngest and probably will not play together for many more years,” Onduj admits to the pivotal thirty-year-old, the tallest man in the successful generation of Czech basketball players.

But he doesn’t want to think too much about his age yet, and he’s not the only one. Even the biggest star of the national team, Tomasz Satoransky, who scored 17 assists against Greece, sees a future in the Czech national team.

“I’m still young to think about it. Of course it hurts more and more. Especially when you have children and a family and you want to spend time with them. The season will be long, and now a new period awaits me at Barcelona, ​​where I hope to fight for titles until the end of June. But I still have a lot of plans and ambitions with the national team, so I didn’t think much about it. I still have time,” Satoransky thinks.

The 30-year-old rule has one problem, which is that the mainstays who play in the leading clubs not only in Europe (for example, the Euroleague for basketball, not to mention the NBA abroad) will most likely not be available for representation in most eligible windows. in the next years.

“Does he have a future in the national team? I don’t know. It will be the next Eurobasket in three years, which is very far from talking about it. I don’t want to say anything now, of course I will give him a chance, but we will see how the situation develops year after year.” Elimination in the round of 16 of the European Championships in Berlin 32-year-old Jan Vecello, who also already belongs to Barcelona.

World Cup and Olympics

The oldest members of the basketball team are Patrick Oda and captain Wojciech Hruban, Those who were born on the same day are thirty-three.

“Among the key players who have been playing together for a long time, no one is twenty-five years old. Time does not stop, it is still open. I expect to get to the nearest World Cup qualification window and then we will see each other,” says Hruban.

However, the Czechs do not have a good qualification for the next world championship, and it will be difficult, but not impossible, to reach the final championship.

Coach Ronen Ginsburg, who predicted the success of this generation nine years ago when he joined the bench, will now decide his future as well.

“First of all, I will talk about my future with the president of the federation, Miroslav Jansta. We will discuss it, I still have a year on my contract. I will not give you a clear answer yet, but I am definitely closer to the end than the beginning.

Another and one of the last possibilities for how the group could appear around Satoranscu, Vecello or Hroban in some of the most important events is to get a wild card to qualify for the Olympics in Paris.
