In a shocking move after Iraklis-PAOK where the host team was easily defeated by their city rivals, Iraklis administration made the players take off their jerseys and leave them in the court center.
Some of the players obeyed the orders and indeed took them off and threw them in the court center. A couple of hours later the president of Iraklis BC made an announcement apologizing to the fans for the "queer game" by the players.
The club's move has outraged the Players' Union who made an announcement against the club accusing them of "homophobic sentiments" and understanding the "outrage of their Iraklis colleagues" for the humiliation suffered by the club's administration.
The club later retaliated again by quoting the team's captain Vladimir Petrovic that "the players don't deserve to wear this team's jerseys" and again hinting against the players saying that "a club is not a contract, a car and house with internet".
