Now Bayern is second in group and has 3 wins and 1 defeat. We have great chances to progress in Top 16.

We can compare Bayern & Olympiacos dynamic if we reverse the prestige that these two clubs have in football,Bayern is a dwarf and Olympiacos a giant in basketball of course.
Pesic is without a doubt a world class coach,does an extremely good job and I hope Bayern will tie him at Minuch many years,at basketball is very very imporant to have a coach who KNOWS what basketball means in any way,Pesic is one of them,he could be a huge signing if Olympiacos,Panathinaikos or Barca had his as a head coach,just to imagine how much I rate him and every basketball fan should.
The basic problem with Bayern is that they don't have a core of decent German basketball players,Germany doesn't have good players and Bayern needs some,it's hard for a team to make a core from foreign players one team made it in Euroleague(Maccabi with Parker,McDonald)
I fully agree,one more plus for a basketball team -having a great coach- is the scouting,it doesn't matter which age,if you find the system and you can take the 100% percent of him,you can make him world class,you can buy a star player but if this player doesn't fit it might look like garbage.For example,Olympiacos buyed Kyle Hines from Bamberg,a player that I didn't know at all,a pocket Center,it turned to be world class,Maj Lojeski this year,Belgian MVP,28 years old,for such a class team,at the first sight sounds like a laughable signing,it turned to be class player too,these were some examples,every year you can find 10 examples like these.Conclusion is that Bayern has a very good scouting and with the financial boost from the FC it's a good chance in the coming years(5-6) they can make at F4 at least once.And I am sure Pesic will stay for a long time. His only desire was to go home after so many years working abroad. And he did that in Red Star. So now he is back in Germany ( the place of his greatest successes) and Bayern is a great project that can have a great payoff in a long run. Great final challenge for him. Also his son is a had of sport operations in Bayern.
Big plus for Bayern basketball is money that comes from football. Because prise money that Euroleague is giving is very small, also money from marketing and TV rights is laughable compare to football. So having regular financial injection from FC will always make Bayern a big club in European basketball. Road for success in basketball is not so long and hard if you have money and good coaching staff. So I believe Bayern will have a great future in European basketball.
