Top 5 reasons to watch FIBA 3x3 World Tour Prague Masters 2017
4 Aug 2017
PRAGUE (FIBA 3x3 World Tour 2017) - Top 5 reasons to watch the Prague Masters? Ok where do we start? There’s more reasons to watch the event than the millions to buy Neymar.
1. Let us begin with the new number one 3x3 player in the world, the King in the North of Serbia, Jon Snovi Sad Al Wahda: Dusan Domovic Bulut. In an interview with us last week, Mr Bulutproof shared his ambitious plan to win every Masters left this season. Truth is Prague used to bring them luck. That’s where they won their 1st two Masters back in 2013 and 14. But the last 2 years? Home with empty pockets. Let's see what happens here.
2. We wanna see what happens between Ljubljana and Saskatoon too. That was the final in Saskatoon this year. That was the final in Prague last year too! 2 W for Ljubljana. BUT this time they’re missing Tomo Cajic who still hasn’t recovered from his back injury. Is it the time the Canadians finally put Birdman in a cage?
3. We gotta give a shout-out to Dragan Bjelica, Mr Crosssover! We just wanted to show his ankle-breaker from Abu Dhabi again. Jonathan Garcia, if you’re watching this, we’re sorry, all right? We promise it’s the last time we ever show this play… this week. We could watch replays of this thing all day, all night. This is more addictive than Fantasy Basketball.
4. Smoove is back! The 2016 dunk world champ is making his World Tour debut this season and we cannot wait. The Ukrainian pro dunker is one of the most creative dunkers on the planet and his hands are faster than Vasyl Lomachenko. Against him, don’t sleep on the best dunker in the UK, Joel Henry aka 'the Royal Guard', who proved he had more hops than Calvin’s Hobbes at the Lausanne Masters last year.
5. We couldn’t finish this top 5 without bringing up DJ Cut Dem, who has transformed Wencleslas Square into a big-time dancefloor for the last 5 years. He’s got 13 nationalities and plays 37 instruments. He’s more unforgettable than French Montana and Swae Lee and he’s the living proof that 3x3 events are true urban culture festivals. The Prague Masters is gonna be a party!
