Bostjan Nachbar will follow Nenad Krstic's example and take a "temporary break" from national team commitments. Slovenia is playing in the European championships in Spain next August. Meanwhile, Nachbar and his teammates are taking a lot of criticism for their performance in the Worlds. Slovenian media denigrated the team as only capable of beating "basketball dwarves" and for being overly sensitive to media criticism. The team declined to speak with the media in Japan.
