Natallia Dashkevich, bronze medalist of the 2nd European Games, basketball 3x3

Team: Brooklyn Nets

- While choosing my team for the cyber tournament, I have decided that "Brooklyn" is the most balanced and suitable team for this event, - Natallia Dashkevich said. – Plus, I am very impressed with Kevin Durant and his skills. I know about cyber basketball for a long time, but first I played it about two years ago. Now I do not mind to keep my husband company and compete with him in my free from trainings and games time. I am sure that on May 28, we will all have a great time, not excluding the competitive moment.

Maksim Liutych, bronze medalist of the 2nd European Games, basketball 3x3

Team: Los Angeles Lakers

- I chose the Lakers because I thought they were the favorites this season, so the chances of winning, in my opinion, are great – Maksim Liutych said. - In addition, the presence of such a swingman as LeBron James can be the main trump card on the way to victory. First, I expect a cool and friendly atmosphere from the upcoming tournament. I will not hide that victory would also be a nice bonus.

Andrei Rahozenka, bronze medalist of the 2nd European Games, basketball 3x3

Team: Milwaukee Bucks

- If to talk about cyber basketball, I believe that Milwaukee is one of the strongest teams in the League. I always choose it when I’m playing NBA 2k20 in my free time with my friends. I think the key player in this team is Giannis Antetokounmpo and I am planning my game relying on his tremendous opportunities. I think we can all have a great time, chill out and have fun. However, at the same time, everyone understands that this is still a competition, but there is still a desire to win.

Aliaksandr Semianiuk, player of Men’s National Team of Belarus

Team: Houston Rockets

- I decided to choose “Houston” because this team has good snipers. For example, I really count on the Eric Gordon’s skills, who perfectly performs his uncontested shots. To be honest, I'm new to cyber basketball, so I don't know all the details of this virtual game yet. Still, I hope that being in the company of more experienced competitors, I will be able to show my best skills.
