That was the most amazing basketball final I have ever seen in my life. Unbelievable comeback. Spanoulis, Papanikolaou, Sloukas, Mantzaris, Printezis just showed what being a champion means.

Those 3 young Greek players (Mantzaris, Sloukas, Papanikoloau) are spectacular for their age.

I'm only getting to the final now. Interesting seeing Antic playing at this high level after the great national team performance he had with McCalebb.

I love watching Teodosic and wish he could find some success in the NBA. Such a smart player.

Teodosic had a terrible 4th quarter though. What a game!

An amazing game indeed. Teodosic had similar 4th quarters when he played for Olympiacos as well.

Which is why I gave the :o answer to your post.

Yeah, normally he is. I was going off of experience and was only through the 2nd quarter when I said that. :lol: This was the first showing I could find in the US unless I watched online.

olypiakos won?

i remember there was a discussion on the general board about if these 4 teams could play in the nba

and some guy was like no, which i agree with, but then he also said Olympiakos would be the worst team easily, and said Moscos may make the playoffs in the eastern confrence, he said Olympiacos would be the worst of the 4 euroleague teams though and definately be worse then the bobcats

and they won :lol:

It's ok, mate :lol:

Being an Olympiacos fan I have some experience with Milos. And I wouldn't call him a smart player per se.

He is a very smart passer and offensive player. He reads the defense well.

But his shot selection is very suspect. He will take a lot of crazy shots and he can shoot his team out of games. He also tends to miss crucial FTs.

No I understand why you said it. Horrible three point shots taken late in the game for no reason. He was also caught traveling and trying to say that he was fouled. The ball did not work through the paint enough, and that is why they collapsed. Was surprised that Kirilenko did not assert himself. From watching Kristic in the NBA, he appears to be somewhat of a choker. (does not necessarily have a rep for this that I know of, but I've noticed that he fades in the clutch)

Total choke job by Šiškauskas, missing those freebies. Papanikolaou really kept them in the game. Haven't kept up with Euroleague as much as I would have liked, but what are his future prospects looking like? Obviously a great game, but he's extremely young.

Yeah, when I say he is a smart player, I meant in terms of his court vision. That's what impressed me. Defensively, he is a liability imo. That's what has been holding him back. And I really don't know how clutch/unclutch he is to be honest. Haven't seen him enough in pressure situations. When I've watched him, his team has always been up big.

Yup, Papanikolaou kept us in the game.

At the start of the year we hoped that he was ready to make the big leap into a full-fledged protagonist for our team since we opted for a very low budget.

He didn't make the leap. Not right away at least. But he was amazing in the Final 4. He was amazing in the top 8 as well. We just have to hope that he steps up in the Greek Finals as well :D
