    if your players would think the same way (I consider them too experienced and profesional to actually think that way), than it would indeed be an one way game...

    Lol, the European Basket-fall Diving Champions is the title that will better suit the Spanish NF if they win tonight, Go Russia, and hope you wont suffer from biased refereer who want to please the home team, and beware of the Spanish cry-baby divers and the *show* they will put

    The fact greeks became that loud is just that majority of them haven't watch spanish games before or weren't that interested in it.
    Ditto. I hate to see the team so full of talent wasting their time on court in amateur drama antics and dirty playing. It reminds me of Italian squadra azzura - how it is possible to have in one team players like Cannavaro, Nesta and others, who don't give up an inch against any opponent, no matter how strong, and tactics of diving, complaining, whining?
    And before you will start saying that it is a matter of sour grapes, I would say that I never condone such behaviour among our own players. Lot's of our national team problems is because of too much time spent arguing with referees as opposed to standing up and playing.
    But Garbajosa and Fernandez took the dark side of basketball game to another level altogether. Therefore, you're the strongest squad in Europe, there's no doubt about it. But you suck big time. It's not just "suck". It's a huge 40-storeys skyscraper with neon signs all over the night sky "YOU SUCK"

    Since USSR and Socialist Republic of Yugoslavia don't exist anymore, even if USSR and SRYugoslavia won the world championship and the Eurobasket the following year, Spain will be the first country to achieve that.

    name calling... 1st warning
    Im hailing for Russia tonight, as I was hailing for the real winners of the game yesterday between Greece and Spain, the Greek team was the real winner, fighting against all negative odds and a bunch of spanish actors.

    Just quit the sport.Watch Barca C.F., Real Madrid C.F., Valencia and the historic (my favorite) Recreativo de Huelva.Probably bball started 4 u last year and will finish tonight.
    There r losers in the court and losers in the mind.Fortunately we r only the former and we don't have 100% responsibility 4 that.

    Statements like that, once again show what you are made of, and I am talking specifically for you, not for all spanish fans.

    As I have already said in these forums, I watched the game with 4 friends of mine, all of them spaniards (3 guys and a girl). They saw the game, they saw the diving, they were ashamed of it.

    Of course the game was great, and I agree both teams played good. It may or may have not ended up in the same result without the comedy and the diving.

    I am not angry so much for loosing it in such a way, but mostly because it was an incredible fight, and the spaniards tried to turn it into a parody. They ruined a great game.

    Never before have I seen players falling like that, ANYONE who has played basketball understands exactly what was going on. Many of us me including were cheering spaniards when we lost to them in 2006.

    Yesterday was different, and it was ridiculus. Go on and insult us as much as you like, I won't fall down to your level and start calling the fans loosers and such words that you like to use so much.

    Facts are facts though.

    On one hand we have an example from the greek team, Papaloukas, congratulating a three pointer that sent us to the extra team in the game vs serbia, and on the other hand we have an example of a spanish player, Garbajosa, falling ridiculusly and holding his head (!!!) when the light contact that was made was made shoulder to shoulder!

    Again, look at the video, and tell me.

    How can a shoulder to shoulder contact, lead to a player HOLDING IN TERRIBLE PAIN HIS FCKN HEAD ?

    Ridiculus.

    There were one actor(obviously Calderon diving), and a lot of fighters. Yesterday I counted 4 or 5 fouls that the referees didn't gave to the spanish, more specifically performed by Dikoudis and Tsarsaris. And 1 technical foul missing. And the invented technical foul to Rudy Fernández (What was that? Did you see that?). From my point of view the referees made a lot of mistakes ON BOTH SIDES. OMG stop cryng, there are some loosers fans here.

    As I said before is all relative, In my opinion the general result is OK. And I am only saying that there are some, not all greek, but some greek fans that don't assume the loose and insult all the spanish people calling us cheaters and all that things. Stop bitching.

    If we were loosers my spanish friends, we would act like that all the time, I am again saying to you we lost before to spain, a great team.

    Why should I or any greek fan cry or not accept that ? I do not consider it a shame.

    Yesterday was not that case, no matter how many times you call names at us, in the same way your players did.

    Examples ? Did you see the foul that was whistled on spanoulis on a spanish turn-over ? He WAS STANDING STILL BEHIND THE SPANISH PLAYER, HANDS FOLDED! And your bench was yelling for a FCKN technical !!!!

    You should also note that there is a rule in basketball that says a player can get a technical foul if he acts. Yes, there actually is a rule like that, go get some ref book and read it. Thats why you got that technical. You should ve got a lot more.

    And one last question, AGAIN, untill someone answers :

    HOW CAN A SIMPLE SHOULDER TO SHOULDER CONTACT, like the ones that are happening all the time in basketball, lead to Garbajosa fallin on the floor HOLDING HIS HEAD IN TERRIBLE PAIN ?
