    I have the impression that the coach is starting the blame game. In one interview he metioned that other things have been discussed before the last posession and otherthings happend on the court.

    So the resumee of this article is that Greece should adapt the game completely to Giannis and Giannis has weaknesses which are exposed especially in international play. The conclusion is we need another coach and Giannis has to rasp his game to include the remaining items left which is high shooting percentage and scoring above an defender.

    From my point of view I would say we should not change everything but we should allow Giannis 4-8 times per match to make his own game.

    For me the goal of highest priority is that the tournament ends in a way which is not a complete dissapointment for Giannis so that he is willing to return in future to the NT. Second but also important goal is qualification for the preolympic qualification tournament so that we can see Giannis play next year again. If we dont manage to get these two things it will be a catastrophy.

    I think that both goals have been achieved. Ok we did not make it to the quarter final but the fight in the last game showed the Hellas is alive and the team is united. Giannis will return. I am sure. In addition we qualified for the OQT

    Actually buddy you are what I believe is the only one alone in here... Coaching with team Hellas was a disaster this season!

    Kalathis announced that OQT next year might be his last participation with the national team.

    It means the greek nt will be stronger after olympic qualifiers. I like Moraitis but he needs time.

    Calathes choice is logical. He started at 2009 and till now he missed only one summer(2013). He is the exception of Greek-Americans that love to play in National team even if he has injury problems.

    Now why do i think it's logical? It's because national team hasn't become a TEAM all these years. Calathes follows the beaten path of all our stars.

    Diamantidis 30, Papaloukas 31, Spanoulis 33, Ntikoudis 30, Tsartsaris 31 etc all these guys stopped playing for some "undisclosed reasons".

    Let's hope that his last tournament will be the one to remember.

    I have severe doubts that Greece has any chance to play a successful OQT. There will be many quality teams in this tournament and only a few available spots. In addition I do not see any reason why Greece should present itself in a better way than this year. Most core players will be one year older. Thats it.


    Regarding team building, I think this is one of the main responsibilities of the coaching stuff. You need someone in charge who inspires the new generation and keeps them all motiviated and focused on the goal.

    If the four groups will be based on FIBA basketball rankings, the Greece avoids France, Serbia and Lithuania. Without saying that Greece is a super team, they should have their chances. If however FIBA matches good teams together, then nothing is certain for any team.

    Perhaps Greek players should change their philosophy. Take on Spain's example. Look at Gasol, after his 30s he sits out sometimes and joins when he feels he is ready.
