This was because in that time, the NBA made it near-impossible for German internationals to play on both their NBA teams and the national team.
For this reason, important players like Detlef Schrempf , Uwe Blab or Christian Welp often were unavailable in big tournaments.
The win of the edition of the European Championship at home in Germany, thanks to superb clutch play of tournament MVP Welp who had returned from the USA ,  came totally unexpected.
The team won the election to "Team of the Year" by the German press. There was a huge wave of enthusiasm, but arguably due to lack of infrastructure and professionalism, tangible results were rare.
German basketball stayed in the shadows, the next generation of youth shunning the native league while being glued to the NBA with Michael Jordan.
For the next three EuroBaskets , the national team did not come close to repeat the success. But then, German basketball got a lucky break when a lanky youth named Dirk Nowitzki tried his luck with the Dallas Mavericks and became a superstar.
He created new enthusiasm for basketball in Germany, and in his slipstream, the national team had a renaissance. In , Germany played Turkey and was one second away from the final, when Turkey nailed a buzzer beater to send the game into overtime.
Nowitzki was also named MVP of that tourney. One year later, however, the team suffered its worst setback in years. In the EuroBasket , which was also the qualifier for the Olympic Games , the talented, but inexperienced team blundered through a tournament, blowing late-game leads with appalling anti-clutch play.
Germany was eliminated early and failed to qualify for the Olympics. Before the EuroBasket , expectations were not too high.
The German roster was depleted by injury, and remembering the disaster of two years ago, nobody dared to dream of a medal. However, an inspired Dirk Nowitzki powered the team into the finals, eliminating favourites like Spain and Slovenia on its way.
In the finals, the team was blown out by Greece , but Nowitzki was named MVP again, and the team won the election to "Team of the Year" by the German press again.
In the knock-out phase, Germany fought a tough match versus underdogs Nigeria , ending in a 78—77 win when Nigerian star Ime Udoka missed a last-second layup.
In the quarter-finals, Germany played top favorite USA , and managed to play an excellent first half, trailing only 39— In the consolation round, Germany lost 73—75 against France , losing a lead in the last 18 seconds with two turnovers.
Germany qualified for the Summer Olympics in Beijing by taking the final spot with the third place in the qualification tournament in Athens, Greece.
They were eliminated from the competition following an overtime game with Angola , and would finish with a record, beating Serbia and Jordan.
At the EuroBasket , Germany qualified for the second round with wins over Israel , Italy and Latvia , but in the second round they only managed a win over Turkey , losing to Spain and Lithuania , and failed to reach the knockout stage.
Nowitzki competed in both these tournaments and announced his retirement from the team following the EuroBasket. Following an unbeaten qualifying campaign , Germany participated in EuroBasket Drawn in Group A, they kicked off the tournament with a surprise win over France who would later go on to win the tournament , but then suffered losses to Ukraine , Belgium and Great Britain , the latter two eliminating them from contention.
They won their final game over Israel but it was not enough, France, Ukraine and Belgium qualified from the group.
Germany then qualified for the next edition of the EuroBasket in , despite a turbulent qualification which saw two defeats to Poland.
In September, following qualification, Germany was announced as one of the four new hosts of the tournament following the relocation from Ukraine.
In the same month, Dirk Nowitzki announced that he would come out of retirement to play for the team in this tournament.
Roster for the EuroBasket In Germany, professional basketball is known for developing players whose parents or grandparents are immigrants. The national team routinely uses many players who have family roots in Africa, Eastern Europe, United States or others, but have grown up in Germany, speak fluent German and are native Germans by law.
The last point is especially important, as the new FIBA rules prevent the use of more than one "naturalized" citizen per country.
