Olympiacos!

Very glad they advanced, **** CSKA :D Missed the first half, but caught the second one. Spanoulis > Teodosic, end of story.
Spanoulis was 0-11, guy was just sinking his team down, but the the 4th Q happened - drained everything and proved to be the real leader. Guy didn't care he was 0-11 prior to that, zero hesitation in those clutch buckets. Where Teodosic couldn't even stay on the court due to his joke defense, guy can't stay in front of anyone.
Speaking about defense - Brent Petway... This guy is good, can probably defend all 5 positions.Guy played center in the last quarter, switched after every screen, and locked everyone. No guard can beet this man off the dribble, nor can pass the ball to the pain, because of Petway's length and tenacity.

Olympiacos was considered to be an Underdog in this one, I believe they were considered to be an underdog against Barcelona as well, but I am starting to think they are no underdogs at all, and this is not just another fluke. As I said before, I was the guy who thought they overachieve, but I had an epiphany, absolutely. They just have the right players who are really underrated. Defense wins championships! Hope they win it all.

Waiting to Real - Fenerbache one, hope Fenerbache wins.

One of my old favorites, Bourousis with a nice, casual 44 RKG rating game against OLY :D In a win no less, and hes on my fantasy team, so yeah, that feels good. Especially after Udoh and Singleton being hot garbage.

Its amazing to me how similar Ioannis Bourousis is to Jonas Valanciunas nowadays. They are like twins, body type is very similar, athleticism similar, runs the floor the same way, post moves are very similar, defense, screen setting, its all the same. If you Nic Cage John Travolta Face/off-ed them for a few games, I doubt fans would even notice :D

Laboral Baskonia after making the final four has lost many of it's key players (Bourousis, Mike James, Darius Adams, Fabien Causeur) but is rebuilding the team nicely. They've signed Andrea Bargnani, Rodrigue Beaubois and Shane Larkin so far.

Do they not realize Bargs is like always injured? That seems like a ridiculously high price for a guy that is getting hurt all the time.

Keeping with bargnani update, the guy is now only playing in garbage time. Man this guy has fallen off hard, can you believe Raptors tried to build around him. Hell or high water.

Brose has a pretty decent budget. They have a really rich owner and he's increased the club's budget every year for several years now.
