On The Road with Mike: EuroBasket 2011

On Thursday I flew from London to Kiev for a press conference to announce that I will coach the Ukrainian National Team in the 2011 FIBA European Basketball Championship, which will be hosted by Lithuania this summer. I’m honored that Alexander Volkov and the Ukrainian Basketball Federation have afforded me this terrific opportunity to coach in an international competition, and I look forward to the challenge.

Jeff Taylor recaps some of the highlights in his article “Fratello Now Onboard the Ukrain Train.”


  1. I’m going to miss the Czar covering Nets games after this season. Best wishes in Ukraine!
