Collet's options in the frontcourt however were limited, as on Monday it was confirmed that Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah and Indiana Pacers center Ian Mahinmi would not be available to play at the EuroBasket, and therefore did not receive a call-up. The absence of the two NBA players aggravated a problem for Les Bleus at the center position, as before them three other big men had pulled out of the national team, for different reasons. Kevin Seraphin of the Washington Wizards announced he would follow an individual training program in the summer. After missing EuroBasket 2011 with a hand injury, Ronny Turiaf is expected to return to the France line-up. Eurobasket 2013

Green was diagnosed with an aortic root aneurysm in December 2011, six and a half years after Turiaf was discovered to have a similar condition. The Clippers’ benevolent big man heard about Green and said he knew “every single moment” that he would go through. “When I heard about it, that it he was going to be out for a while and that he had to undergo open heart surgery I just reached out to him,” Turiaf said. “You always need someone to be able to talk to you and tell what to expect. “It’s big fraternity, the open heart surgery survivors. But we try to stick with each other because it’s a tough process.” NBA.com

Chris Paul referred to him as “my guy” during Friday’s Media day session. And Jordan’s new teammate and seven-year NBA veteran Ronny Turiaf said, “Working with him [Jordan] and talking to him, you can tell that he has the ‘it factor’ because he has something special in him.” On the basketball court, there are few big men as athletic, and even fewer as intimidating on the defensive end. He averaged 2.0 blocks per game in his first season as the full-time center last year, including a dynamic eight-block performance on Christmas night against the Warriors. “Dude [Jordan] is a monster, that’s all I’ve got to say,” Turiaf added. “He’s very athletic, he runs very fast. He’s a great rebounder, a great defender. To me, and I know I’m going out on a limb, but he reminds me a lot of the Bill Russell type of player that blocks shots with his left hand and can impact a game so much on both ends of the court.” NBA.com
