Greece Is Coming To 2012 Olympics
 


Greece qualified to the 2012 Olympics Qualification Tournament. They made it through the hardest tournament to qualify through by far (FIBA EuroBasket).

They also beat Serbia (2nd at FIBA EuroBasket 2009, 4th At 2010 FIBA World Championship - despite the refs being against them) to qualify.

Greece will now qualify through the 2012 Olympics Qualification Tournament next summer and will be at the Olympics Basketball Tournament for the third straight time (2004, 2008, 2012).

Greece did this, despite only having their C national team at 2011 EuroBasket.

Now, for the 2012 Olympics, Greece will return such A national team players as Sofoklis Schortsanitis, Vassilis Spanoulis, Panos Vasilopoulos, and Georgios Printezis, as they have all committed for the 2012 Olympics.

Possibly, other A team players such as Loukas Mavrokefalidis, Theo Papaloukas, and Dimitris Diamantidis will also play. As their statements were that they will consider playing at the Olympics (after they have been criticized extremely hard throughout Greece over their terrible recent behavior). Mavrokefalidis was even suspended from Russian League and there has been talk of Diamantidis also being suspended from Greek League. So now they are "reconsidering".

So................................................ ............

Greece will be there with probably about 8-9 of its best players at the 2012 Olympics.

GET READY TEAM USA. Because Greece is coming.

Why do you care? Aren't the refs just going to rig the games as usual for the USA to win?

Greece has been on the downturn for quite awhile now. Nobody fears them on the International stage anymore.

The C team of Greece just qualified through EuroBasket (hardest international tournament). What the hell are you smoking?

The A team of Greece will be by far the biggest threat to USA in 2012.

I'm just going by actual results.

2008 Olympics = 1st round exit.

2010 FIBA WC = 1st round exit.



Greece has not played well in the last two International competitions, and nothing points to them improving. I don't even consider them part of the elite anymore. They are a 2nd tier International team now until they can prove otherwise by actually producing results in International competition.

We all know this bird is going to say refs rigged once Greece loses.
We all know that Bob Mccalebb wouldn't make an NBA roster
We all know Deron Williams is the best player in Europe right now
We all know USA is #1
We all know Anthony Parker is GOAT
