Greeks vs. Spaniards

Postby Alex_als on September 3rd, 2006, 5:28 am

After wining the Dream Team (and not a minor college bunch the USA has sent at previous FIBA Championship disgracing the tourney) at the Semi-finals greeks are being favored to win the World Basket Championship.

I for sure (half-Greek) hope the Greeks win it.

However having (badly) beaten the most dreaded team in the world (dream team) has given me such a satisfaction in terms of sport, that finishing second would not matter at all.

Sadly one of the best Spanish players wont play today because of a injury he had at the semifinals. All greeks would have wanted him to play.

I think it is a big victory for all European Basketball lovers to see both teams at the final being from Europe.

At the beginning of the tourney the favoured final was USA - Argentine.

Good going Europe, i hope it will be a fantastic final.

Yeah, I'm glad that elitist bunch of over-paid, over tattooed, over confident babies lost.

You go Greece. C'mon, you gotta love it Greek style.

Cheers,

Well done Spain.

We had a bad day - they had a terific day.

Next time new try.

Second place aint first but still it is something to be proud of (Although today we played without spirit and had a very bad performance, not worthy for a final).
