    Default Greek National Team 2022

    Hi,
    DIMITRIS ITOUDIS will be the head coach for eurobasket 2022,
    and GIANNIS will participate.

    This is the 23 preliminary team:
    Nick Calathes
    Kostas Papanikolaou
    Kostas Sloukas
    Giannis Antetokounmpo
    Georgios Papagiannis
    Thanasis Antetokounmpo
    Ioannis Papapetrou
    Giannoulis Larentzakis
    Dimitris Agravanis
    Leonidas Kaselakis
    Lefteris Bochoridis
    Kostas Antetokounmpo
    Michalis Lountzis
    Tyler Dorsey
    Panagiotis Kalaitzakis
    Dimitris Moraitis
    Nikos Chougkaz
    Kostis Gontikas
    Ioannis Kouzeloglou
    Alex Antetokounmpo
    Lefteris Mantzoukas
    Omiros Netzipoglou
    Giorgios Tanoulis

    What do you think about starting lineup and bench?

    My hypothesis:

    Starting lineup
    PG Dorsey
    SG Sloukas
    SF Papanikolaou
    PF Papapetrou
    C Giannis

    Reserves
    PG Calathes
    PG/SG Lountzis, Larentzakis
    PG/SG/SF Kalaitzakis
    SF Thanasis
    PF Kostas, Agravanis

    I had some infollution about this Omiros Netzipoglou. The federation official told me that Omiros Netzipoglou is actually Turkish during U-20 tournament this summer. And said his actual name is Omer Necipoglu. But, I couldn't find any Greek source that verifies this claim.

    Any Greek friends know something about his roots?

    He is from Thessaloniki just like my grandparents. A bonus for having sympathy towards this guy. I have been there twice, even visited the village of my grandparents in Kozani who migrated from there in 1939.

    Sports is not only considered as a superiority of physical capability. Perception, intelligence and morality assist it as well. The strong with less intelligence and comprehension can not cope with the less strong but with sufficient intelligence and comprehension. I like the sportsman who is intelligent, agile as well as morally upright.

    There is not much info about him. All I could find that his roots are from Asia Minor. You would call people like him, Rum.

    Hmm. FIBA listed him as Omer Netzipoglou in official tournament page, not Omiros though. That is too strange to see a Rum with Turkish name if his roots are really from Anatolia. Both his name and surname are so Turkish, I really wonder what is the real case here.

    I read in another forum that he is a pomak.

    I agree with you and R1ou that Omer as a first name would indicate that he is either Pomak or Turkish. I also found the name Omer Netzipoglou in a Greek article. So the FIBA site is correct.
