    Spanoulis said in an interview today that he may consider playing for the Greek NT during the pre-olympic tournament. At 38 it would be a good example for all those Greek players who retired at a very early age. Diamantidis being one of them who announced his retirement at 30. Ofcourse, the season may be short for Olympiacos as they are only participating in the EL. Plenty of time for Olympiacos players to rest until the next season. But ofcourse, it's only a maybe. Still a key player. He remains a leader on the court and is a decent shooter. Spanoulis and Dorsey can give an extra dimension to Greece's game.
    On that note, Pitino also said he still will coach the Greek national team.

    Skountis just said Zisis and Bourousis also consider it if they are asked to.

    Curious if you are happy with Pitino as the coach?

    He seems very over rated from my North American perspective. He was a terrible coach for the PR national team and I am not sure what he brings to the table for Greece besides his outdated name.

    When he coached PR he didn't have a clue about the international game. Now he has EL experience. Well, let's put it this way. I prefer him over the current one. I'll take it.

    Skountis just said Zisis and Bourousis also consider it if they are asked to.
    Well, those wouldn't be bad options either. Not sure whether Zisis is still better than Athinaiou, Bochoridis, Larentzakis. But Bourousis can still be useful as other than Papagiannis there is no one else.

    It still ain't sure whether he will be the coach or not.
    Well, he confirmed a few weeks ago still being committed.

    But ofcourse nothing is certain.
