They just spend all their time at the beach and don't wan't to do any work because they come from a lazy beach culture. Or at least that is what all NBA teams believe."

But that is the excuse that NBA teams use for why the won't draft Greek players. That's not the real reason, which is politically motivated. Obviously, that excuse they are giving is absolutely absurd.
