We are the best u can find around the Carpathians, - says the Bears. They are not shy at all! Maybe Bears not the skilled one but heavyest team of the tournament for sure. It is hard to win low post battles against such physical squad. Good rebounding team. During one of Bears' player shot rest cut through the paint and take the ball. Similar style NBA champions Miami Heat playing, LeBron James and Dwayne Wade runs right to the glass from perimeter grabbing tons of boards. Upcoming games will show us how effective this tactic really is. The Carpatians Bears leader is legendary Angel Santana. He's so famous not because of his titles but his showtime staff on the court. I'm not talking about crossovers, dunks and crazy buzzer-bitters, I'm talking about snoots, permanent smile and signature funny moves. He likes to communicate with the crowd feeling energy from it. Two years ago when Romania won quarterfinal Santana begun to dance. His teammates picked up dance too under big applause. That was pure improvisation and one of the best moments of Moscow Open history.
