plato-ny Posted August 4, 2006 Author Share Posted August 4, 2006 Some one had critized Greece earlier in the discussion about shooting poorly, and scroing much. I think that Greece's stregnth on this team is defense, they usually have low scoring games. This is the nature of their tactics, look at the teams the played during euro 2005 and how they won. Teams who cannot score on them lose by heavy margins. We have to rember that international basketball is not NBA and most matches are low scoring. Personally I think this basketball may not be as talented as the other teams in the past however!!! They have a great amount of depth, youth, heart and potential somthing unfortunately our soccer team is lacking from what I can see. I think we will be very sucessful at the world cup. This team is the CURRENT European champion and were the YOUNGEST team in Eurobasket 2005. We are ranked 8th in the world. This team has more talent than you think.Shooting Guard Diamantidis voted best defender in Europe last 2 years and was current MVP of Greek league, one of the Top 5 best in Europe. Point guard Papaloukas: was voted mvp of Eurobasket 2005 final, MVP of Russian league, was an important part of CSKA Moscow winning the Euroleague championship, was voted to the all-Euroleague first team, and was voted best domestic player of Euroleague Small forward/shooting guard Spanoulis: just signed with the Houston Rockets and was voted to the all-Euroleague second team Papadopoulos and Fotsis: were important players in leading dinamo moscow to the ULEB Cup. Other players on the team play in Spain and Italy and both have outstanding leagues. So, our team is quite talented and one of the favs in FIBA World Cup.
