    Brian Roberts isn't exactly official yet.

    The swingman needs to have 40% on spot up 3s and we must hope that Sfairopoulos can get solid defence out of the roster, even if most players are average to bad defenders.

    I watched him at Pitt and a bit when he played in TOFAS few years back. As a replacement for Lojeski it's a bad choice to be honest. He is a guy that craves the ball and with it can be pretty effective as a inside scorer + creator. He is not that great defensively and also as a shooter he is quite streaky and has bad shot selection.

    I don't see him as a 3&D solution, and he will need a lot of the ball. Which we know will never happen in Oly We know who owns all the balls in the club

    Dimitris Agravanis extended his contract until 2020!

    It is the first time, Aggelopoulos brothers renewed a contract that wasn't going to end, in the end of the year. This never happened with players like Spanoulis, Printezis, Papanikolaou, Mantzaris, Sloukas! Change of contract policies or something else ?

    Roster closed after Thompson's addition, it should be something like this;

    1. Mantzaris / Roberts
    1.2 Spanoulis / Strelnieks / Toliopoulos
    2.3 Thompson
    3. Papanikolaou / Papapetrou
    4. Printezis / Tillie / Agravanis
    5. Milutinov / McLean / Bogris
    1997 - 2012 - 2013

    It's all on Roberts. If he plays good we will have a great team, if not we will have big issues.

    Yes, it will all start and end with him.

    There are plenty of shooters in the roster, something which we rarely if ever had. There aren't many facilitators though but if Roberts and Strelnieks can get 3 assists each we'll be much better than last year.
    Defensively, I think Sfairopoulos can figure it out and hopefully a healthy team with more offensive options than last year will also have more energy at the end of the season.

    Olympiakos this year can't be considered an outsider any more. They are among the 3-4 favorite teams for the title. At this moment perhaps Oly and Cska are the strongest teams.

    Olympiakos lost the game against AEK, probably after this defeat Pana will obtain the first place concerning regular season.

    Printezis and Milutinov didn't play but Sferopoulos has great responsabilities for this defeat. He gave too many minutes to Spanoulis who was really a disaster.

    2/7 shots and 9(!!) turnovers. Roberts, Mantzaris, Strelnieks were available but he preferred to keep Spanoulis on court during the last minutes.

    Thompson played awfully too.

    I've said before that the return of Spanoulis will at least initially cause problems and Strelnieks and others will get less minutes and fewer responsibilities with negative effects.

    The match against AEK was one such example.

    Relax people. I'm happy we lost. I hope AEK will become stronger and we have more opponents wwho can actually beat is in Greek league.

    Look at these panicking people with 1 loss starting to develop conspiracy theories and blame everybody including the coach and some players. My god relax.

    Olympiakos plays ugly basketball and most of 4th quarters eurocup/champions league basketball.Thats all season not something new.The good thing was that most of the games were somehow won at overtime or from missing buzzer of opponent team.Some games were won because the opponent was terrible (aris at cup) and yesterday the loss came.We should have lost to Real Madrid and most likely we will lose to bamberg because coach sfairo cant handle spanoulis and 4th quarter.Its a pitty because this team can do triple crown this year but we will take zero titles again thanks to coach sfairopoulos.I dont know what you see and believe that we are a good team.Everyone that watches basketball and that is not an Oly fan can clearly see that this team is having big problems despite nice record on EL..

    9-2 record does point to big problems.

    I think winning fewer than 25 of our first 11 games is a clear sign of failure.

    Olympiacos fans - can you provide feedback on how Kyle Wiltjer is playing so far? From the boxscores, he doesn't seem to be doing much of anything, but his minutes played seems to be creeping up slowly to about 12-14 a game. Is this a slow methodical integration for him to learn the system before he gets a "green light" in the offense. His value is clearly on the offensive end (especially 3pt shooting) and it seem strange at this point to see him play 12-14 minutes without even a 3pt attempt.

    I questioned if he could manage on the defensive end in EuroLeague - how bad (or maybe not bad) is it so far?

    Great players, usually, don't know when the time has come to end their careers.
