Spanoulis MVP. There should be a special Printezis award though, and it should go to Printezis.

Slam ‏

The way Printezis and Papanikolaou's games grew this year and then culminating in this is just incredible. Ivkovic is a world-class genius.

It's over 24 hours later and I am still struggling to comprehend how that game went the way it did. Utterly remarkable stuff.

Almost everyone in Turkey supported Pana in CSKA match, Oly in Barça match; then Oly in CSKA match. I think what we supported is the team-play, organization and two legend head coaches of Greek teams. Personally, i was excited in OLY-CSKA as much as i was in Galatasaray-Fenerbahce football match which occured in play-off finals, Sunday. I'm happy that both matches finished as i wished. :)

Rodger Watt
Who saw the Euroleague final?! It was crazy, the winners were 19 down with 12 mins to go and they take a one point lead with 0.7 secs to go!

Aris Galatis
