Shved has come a long way. JCN and Spanoulis are awesome. (but that's to be expected)

Any word on the Acie Law injury?

Very very few NBA games can be better than CSKA - Pana game today.

Law suffered a bad ankle sprain and had to use crutches after the game. He says he wants to play, but the Olympiacos coach said that after his MRI result came back, that it is 99% certain that he can't play in the final.

I think Law just said he wants to play, holding out hope. But it seems extremely unlikely that he will play. They are saying that he probably won't even be able to play during the Greek League Finals either.

You never though, everyone heals differently. Spanoulis broke his ankle earlier this season, and he was only out for 3 weeks.

This year's Final can also be called "The Battle of the Titans" :D

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.

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:
