Someone needs to inform these brain dead idiots that if the federation won't pay for the insurance for Olympiacos players, then they sure the hell won't pay the insurance for NBA players.
NBA teams demand the insurance also or never ever let their players play either. And the federation is refusing to pay for anyone's insurance. Whether they just don't have the money, or they are just being ***** or because they are just psychos, or whatever, but these clowns are all acting like the NBA players will play without even grasping they can't play either without insurance.
Of course at some point someone in the media will "suggest" that Diamantidis should play (not like he could even do anything anyway, because without Greek refs, he's a washed up has been), and he will say, "I have to lay on the beach with my wife and swim and fish and drink cocktails", like every other year.
Then he won't get suspended. Then some other players will get suspended. Of course it also won't be the NBA players....
The funny thing is though, the media and the journalists which Giannakopoulos owns and pays their salaries, they won't be able to blame any losses on anyone but the "vastly superior Panathinaikos players".
Funny how this will all backfire on them.
Since Jankovic and Bramos and Fotsis and all these guys are clearly so "superior" because obviously Panathinaikos is such a "superior" team and wins every year "fair and square", then it only makes perfect since that PAO players should just be the whole national team.
And that then the result should be at least a bronze medal. I mean after all, Panathinaikos players are as we know basically invincible. What is it now something like 10 championships in 12 years?
Surely, since clearly they are without any doubt much superior by far (as is proven every year in the Greek finals), a guaranteed medal is forthcoming now that the national team is basically going to be nothing but Panathinaikos players.
How could Greece possibly lose if Panathinaikos is playing? I mean hell, considering the incredible domination in Greece, the national team of PAO players should actually easily win the tournament undefeated and the get the gold medal, beating USA rather easily in the final.
This is only logical, considering the basic fact that PAO's players have been absolutely unbeatable in Greece for literally decades now, and it has all been "fair and square". It's the greatest dynasty in world basketball history after all.
Can't wait to finally see it, the dream come true, the Panathinaikos national team.
Maybe Pappas can lead the tournament in scoring, since he is so fresh from not playing all season. I mean after all, all the PAO only fans claim he is going to be "the next Diamantidis", after "Diamantidis retires"........
In other words, he will be the new player the Greek refs turn into Superman supposedly...that's the plan. Well, maybe the "new Superman" can be unleashed early at the 2014 FIBA World Cup.
