    Yes, that would be irritating.

We already started to see Nigera start to trap and he was throwing laser assists to the basket.

    Actually, how he is playing right now, is like Galis, but with a much better outside jump shot. Spanoulis is killing everyone from the perimeter. Galis was never much of a long distance jump shooter really.

    Be serious...we have never seen any Greek player at this level since Galis back in the late 80s.
    Anyway... i wont try to change your mind. You're either too young or too Olympiacos

    This Nigerian team is really tough... It's not easy cutting into the lead to make it only a 3 point game like that. By the way ET3 is showing the game on tv in case the guys in Greece didn't know it.

    Got to give respect to Nigeria they just won't die. If they could buy a three pointer they might just shock us tonight.

    Exclamation

    Today the Nigerians can't shoot worth a damn but they're staying in the game by outrebounding and outhustling the Greeks.
