Default Mike Batiste should be playing for Greece.

What’s the deal here? Are the Greeks just stupid? He’s the perfect 4 in the international game. He can stretch opposition D with his range and he is solid inside.

1. He's actually a center. He hasn't played power forward in about 5 years.

2. He refuses to get a Greek passport so he is not Greek.

3. The Greek Basketball Federation has a rule that only Greek born citizens can play for their national team.

4. Greece is really deep at the center position so they don't need him.


Granted, he is a really good player. He's definitely one of the most underrated players there is. But he can't play for Greece and he's not needed by them.
