The soap opera of the Punitka family continues to stir Polish basketball, about three weeks before the opening of EuroBasket 2022. Poland has been drawn to Group D, where it will meet Israel, Serbia, the Czech Republic, Finland and the Netherlands.
The beginning of the story, for those who haven't followed, with the claims of Marcel Punitka that his brother, Matoush, is responsible for the fact that he was not invited to the final squad for the tournament.
The brothers are two of the top basketball players in Poland, especially Matoush who serves as the captain of the national team and has played in recent years for Zenit St. Petersburg.
"Matoush does not accept me for the team and does not see the possibility of us working together for the success of the team," Marcel said the other day, "the captain is not ready to accept me, he influences the squad and sets the conditions in everything related to it. I don't understand why Matoush takes away all the credit from me at any cost and hurts my career. If he has a problem with me, let him not bury his head in the sand."

Matosh said: "I am determined to tell you about the conflict that does not concern only me, but the whole family. Marcel and
parents always make themselves the victim, but no one knows what the truth is. Now I will tell it."
Then he continued: "At the age of 19 I chose to follow my own path. I met the person who became my wife and my parents gave me an ultimatum: 'Either her, or us'. They kept insulting her and I chose her. Later Marcel also joined them. I warned him that the family On the way to losing me, but he chose the path of the parents."
Regarding the family entanglement, he added: "Today I also have no contact with the third brother because our parents incited him against me. That's how it is in this family. When I was a child and I would like to visit my grandfather, my father would try to incite me against him and curse him. My parents live in the house that my grandfather Shelley helped them build and they never even invited him to dinner."
He also said: "There are two camps in my family. One side is against me and one side is neutral, or actually against my parents. My father, for example, cut off contact with his mother who lived two blocks from him, because she invited me and my wife over for Christmas. He also cut off contact With his sister. My parents write talkbacks against me on the Internet, I have vulgar messages they sent me on the phone."

The 28-year-old guard-forward continued: "In recent years, whenever Marcel needed help, even financially, I was there for him. I never refused. Let him tell you how I helped him in a conversation with the coach Bazylona Gora in which he broke down in tears. But he always visited me, insulted me and tried to doubt my ability on the field."
Big Brother concluded: "People love martyrs and Marcel is trying to paint himself as such. I kept quiet for too long, but now it's time to speak. After everything that happened in the last few days, if the coach had invited him to the Eurobasket squad, I would have left."
