Calling Pistol: Who's in Barcelona?

Recommended Posts

Well I have never been to Spain, but I kind a like the music

If he makes it to Basque Country, he should pick up Hontz Gaua by Haizea. It is a killer album from 1979, and recommended by PitBull. Lots of street cred in northern Spain among recruits.

Not sure. Maybe he’s scouting honeymoon locations. He got engaged recently. I could do some research but at this point I’d be throwing darts.

Researching the inquisition's methods?

It would seem to me that the blue and white splotches in the tweet would indicate that it's a Billiken-related business trip.

These are the top 3 scorers from last year's Spain U16 team, who would be in the 2021 class.  Pick your favorite one.

Hector Alderete Diaz, 6'8 SF

The only 2020 big that stood out on the U18 team is a 6'8 power forward named Usman Garuba. He's already playing for Real Madrid in the Euroleague alongside grown men.

On Eurobasket, you used to be able to click on "NCAA Eligible" and it would give you all the players from that country currently eligible for NCAA basketball. I spot checked a few countries - Spain, Greece, Iceland - and no players are showing up currently. I'm sure there are NCAA eligible players from these countries, but Eurobasket seems to have stopped entering them as such for now.

You can still search players by age, national teams, etc.

Anyway, after a little poking around, I don't have any ideas better than what 3star listed above. I will say that it isn't necessarily a Spanish player he may be looking at. It might just be a player or players playing in Spain at the moment.

I'm headed to Madrid this Friday.  Cyberstalk Stuen so I can find him Where in the World Carmen San Diego style and break the billikens.com exclusive.

My guess is Stuen is targeting Vinicius Lucio da Silva and/or Arnau Parrado.  They play for CB Prat which is based in Barcelona and has a game in Gran Canaria tomorrow.

Curious, are these players eligible? The teams they are playing on don't seem like some neighborhood club team. I see that that Vinicius is a 7 footer from Brazil. No one paying him?
