It shows the talent level of Spanoulis where he has to play in ghetto arenas in front of 1,200 fans with the atmosphere of a minor league hockey game and dodge flares to Anthony who plays night in and night out to arenas of 15,000+.
It was 2,000 people, not 1,200. 2,000 because that's all the police will allow.
And the arena seats 16,000. Panionios just added 1,000 seats to it. Since when the **** is a 16,000 seat arena, that is rated as the most modern one in Europe a "ghetto arena"? The arena has every amenity of a top NBA arena, as it was built for the 2004 Olympics. It's considered state of the art by NBA standards.
It's funny, because you claim NBA players are all "hardcore" and Euroleague players are all "soft". Now you contradict yourself and say Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler couldn't play in such a hardcore environment, because they are too soft to handle it.
The level of your hypocrisy is truly astonishing.
