And "Euroleague" actually compared Olympiacos to the New York Knicks. Can you imagine actually asking stars like Anthony and Chandler to play in an environment where flares are being thrown at players, refs are intimidated and fans are kicked out of the arena so they play in front of no one, like a high school game?

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.

Shouldn't have been the other way around? Ban those 2000 from attending the game and let everyone else go? I bet next year the same 2000 will be there.

As Partizan said, the club Hooligan organizers are the ones that have the power in these decisions.

Fine 2,000. What a superstar playing in front of 2,000. And then they were all kicked out! So playing in front of zero fans! What a superstar!

Hardcore environment!! What kind of star wants to play a game with no fans, flying flares and objects coming from the stands, corrupt or intimated refs? Sounds like players from the third world like Nigeria or something.

You think the best players in the world would want to play in such an environment?? I really feel bad for Hines and all those players who have to play in such low class arenas. Too bad they can't make the NBA with their 20,000+ arenas, first class flights. Imagine being hit by a flare! lol The must realize they are at the bottom of the bottom now!!

No wonder Spanoulis was such a scrub in the NBA and in FIBA play. He's use to playing in front of 0 fans. Imagine how he pissed his pants in the NBA where night in and night out he had to play in full modern arenas of 20,000+ fans.

Spanoulis might be good at dodging flares and chairs in the Greek league but that doesn't translate to guarding NBA superstars. lol

Too bad the Knicks don't have a 20,000+ arena. Too bad New York City is so backwards and poor that it can't afford one.

Yes the Knicks have a 19,000+ arena that sells out every game. They never play in front of 2,000 or 0 fans. Madison Square Garden is only "the world's most famous arena".

And yet it is not a 20,000+ arena. Which New York is a "third world poor city". Since you claim anywhere that has less than a 20,000 seat basketball arena is just that.

Your own standards you place on European cities apply to New York also.
