    First of all - the name is Maccabi.
    Second of all - the number of Israelis in Maccabi right now is 8 out of 11 players until now (2 more un-israelis are supposed to come).

    I support Argentina and have been for a few years, I need a team to support since Mexico does not make it to this kinds of tournaments YET.

    After Argentina, I support Puerto Rico and mainly any latinamerican or hispanoamerican teams (Is Hispanoamerican, Latinamerica plus Spain? or is it any country that speaks spanish? I can't remember and can't find it on Google either), then I'll support Europe, I don't mind Greece, but I don't see them enough or know enough to cheer for them.

    One team that I did not like before (I did not dislike it either, I just never saw it play), but I like them now are Turkey.
    2008... Beijing, China
    2010... Vancouver, Canada
    2012... London, United Kingdom
    2014... Shoci, Russian Federation
    2016... Madrid, Chicago, Tokyo???

    Default thats enough :)

    Important New York colleges began to show an interest in him, but Galis finally ended up with the Siton Hall Pirates. There he got the number 11 vest and became a crucial player fairly quickly. But the lack of other good players prevented Galis' team from reaching any NCCA finals in the 4 years that he was playing there. In his fourth and final year, Galis, by now a shooting guard, saw his points average reach 27.5 and his name ranked third among the leading NCCA scorers, behind the great Larry Bird and Balder. When he left Siton Hall, his name was on nearly every record scoring list in the college. Thanks, Mr Manon... In the spring of 1979 Galis realised that the time had come for him to try and play in the NBA. But this big plan was ruined by the whims of his manager, Bill Manon, who may have ruined Galis' career but surely all Greeks are now grateful to him. Bill Manon was the agent of a few basketball players but mostly actors and artists, etc. Among those was the famous Diana Ross who had just launched her solo career away from her band "The Supremes". 'Upside Down' became a big hit and the agent started making money hand over fist, neglecting his then 22 year old Greek basketball player. So, from the first round of drafts, Galis found himself in the fourth with the number 68 and was picked by the Boston Celtics who had already chosen Larry Bird and wanted Galis just to make up the numbers. Galis tried to stay in the NBA but at the worst possible moment an injury left him out for 2 weeks and on his return, he found his place had been taken by Henderson. NBA 0, Greece 1 So he was forced to say goodbye to the NBA


    Said About Galis

    * Michael Jordan: "I did not expect to find such a good offensive player in Europe, especially in your country." (October 1983, National team of Greece Vs North Carolina State University for the "Dimitria" tournament)
    * Drazen Petrovic: "I'd love to play in the same team with him so I can pass the ball to him to score!"
    * Arvidas Sabonis: "I have the feeling that if Galis wants to score a basket, he will score, no matter what the opponent does. He is always determined to succeed."
    * Giorgos Amerikanos: "The man is a computer! He knows what, when, how and why he does what he does. I have not seen such self respect to a player before. He can , if he is certain, to take a shot from the centre of the court, having five players over him, despite a team mate of his being unguarded under the opponent's basket. If I had him next to me in AEK, there would be decades before we taste a defeat."
    * Audi Norris: "I have seen a lot of big players in my life, but what Galis did today (1987-88', Barselona - Aris) can be done only by 2-3 players in the whole world."
    * Aza Petrovic (1988): "Drezen is my brother, but I vote for Galis."
    * Antonio Miguel Diaz(1990): "Come on, tell me the truth. Galis came with you. Where do you hide him?"
    * Bob McAdou(1985):"What Galis and Aris did tonight never happened to me before. Not even in a Celtics game."
    * Vasilis Goumas:"If we played together we would score 300 point every game. He sees the basket as a barrel."
    * Yiannis Ioannidis(1986):"I warn you! When Galis won’t be able to fly as now, he will be the best play maker in Europe!!"
    * Sergei Belov: "He is a great player and that’s why I admire him. No one in Europe can stop Nick when he is on one on one against you. I never expected that such a player can create nightmares to a whole Soviet Union team."
    * Ruudd Harevaain (Holland coach): "I found a way to stop Nick. We will lock him in a hotel so that he cannot come in the court."

    Guys for Galis or PAOK conversations there are other forums/topics.
    The Euroleague Organization and Mr Bertomeu are like the Bulgarian Government: corrupt, partially stupid, and a huge underestimator of people's intelligence.

    Well when Greece defeated Team USA years ago i had a bet with my officemates called USA-against-The-World.

    The bet was if USA did not win the gold, i take home some 5000 (pesos!) from all of the prize pool.

    We know what happened with that one, so yeah, go Greece!
    If there is no basketball in heaven, i am NOT going.

    SMALLBALL, bitches..
