One of Germany's best big men ever, Patrick Femerling finally made it to the Olympics. The 33-year-old center thrived on his return to Germany with Alba Berlin this season. He is a strong, if not athletic, defender, rebounder and shot-blocker. He also hit nearly 75% of his shots during the regular season with Berlin. One of the three Germany captains along with Ademola Okulaja and Dirk Nowitzki, Femerling gives coach Dirk Bauermann an experienced center who is an excellent passer. He is also a proven winner with four straight league titles in Spain (Barcelona) and Greece (Panathinaikos) as well as the 2003 Euroleague crown. Chris Kaman, who got his German passport at the start of July and took over the starting spot but Femerling still played a lot of minutes at the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament and was very effective.
