The former along with Giannakis, Vranković, Alvertis and Patavoukas comprised a very experienced team, which, in 1996, managed an unprecedented success for Greek basketball. Indeed, in April 1996, at the Paris Final Four, Panathinaikos became the first Greek team to lift the European Championships (now called the Euroleague), beating FC Barcelona in a unique tournament final, by a score of 67–66. Back in Greece, right after the big win in Paris, the exit of Dominique Wilkins in the league final led to the loss of a championship from Olympiakos with 35 points difference.

So, you are lying again. They lost to Olympiakos AFTER 'Nique left. They won Euroleague (first Greek team ever to do so) with him there.

Here's some more:
Unhappy with his role on a rebuilding Celtics team, Wilkins signed to play for Panathinaikos of the Greek League. He averaged 20.9 points and 7.0 rebounds for Panathinaikos and led the team to the Euroleague title in 1996 alongside teammates Fragiskos Alvertis, Stojan Vranković and Panagiotis Giannakis. During the Final Four that was held in Paris he had 35 points and 8 rebounds in the semifinal against CSKA and a double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds against Barcelona in the final. His performances earned him the Final Four MVP award. He also won the Greek Cup with Panathinaikos and was named the MVP of the Final.

Edit: You changed your post from "Dominique didn't win" to "The refs cheated" as you usually do when you run out of arguments.

It's pointless talking to you.

Bull shit lies again from Americans in Wikipedia.

He played 4 out of the 5 games in the Greek Finals. Once again, you use lies from Wikipedia, probably posted by you yourself to distort the truth here.
Truly pathetic.
