Thread: Greek NT for WC 2019

  1. #1

    Default Greek NT for WC 2019

    Is this the likely Greek NT roster for the WC?

    Calathes, Mantzaris
    Sloukas, Larentzakis
    Papanikolaou, Papapetrou
    Antetokounmpo, Printezis, Mitoglou
    Bourousis, Koufos, Papagiannis

    A fifth guard instead of Mitoglou would be nice to have, but I'm not sure who that would be. Any breakout performers in Greek A1 this year? Why isn't Agravanis playing this year?

    Is Tyler Dorsey in the mix?


    Also - you hear anything about Naz Mitrou Long? He still has not played for Canada in FIBA and there are always rumors he may play for Greece.
    My guess is keeps his options open until he sorts out a more defined career path (NBA or Europe). I'd assume if he ends up playing in Greece (or elsewhere in Europe) he'd be much more likely to play with Greece.

    hey, Chris, welcome back!

    so, the obvious question; which Antetokounmpo is that in your roster?

    Hi Levenspiel.

    I think Giannis will play in WC. Fingers crossed.

    For me :

    Calathes, Dorsey
    Sloukas, Larentzakis
    Giannis, Papanikolaou, Thanassis
    Printezis, Papapetrou
    Koufos, Mitoglou, (Bourousis or Papagiannis)

    I think that Mantzaris does not have to be in the team, I prefer Dorsey

    I think that it’s undeniable that the 1987 team begat Spanoulis, Diamanidis and that great generation. But now 13 or 14 years later did the ‘05 European champion and 2006 team that beat the Americans give birth to anything similar other than Giannis ? Are there other young prospects on those levels ? If not the problem might be that the ‘05-‘06 triumphs coincided with the 2004 Euro championship and that obviously trumps and dwarfs all.
