Default Greece Is Coming To The 2014 FIBA World Cup

All you haters can STFU now. Greece qualified to the 2014 FIBA World Cup, as one of the two wild cards from Europe, along with Turkey.

According to inside info, per FIBA.

When V-Span, one of the worst NBA players of all time, is your country's best athlete, it's over. Greece should be banned from international sports competitions.

Greece has a soccer team?

Why is some basement dwelling dork living in Alabama repping Greece in the first place?

Qualifying and giving charity entrance is two different things.

Who cares?? USA, Spain, and France would dominate this competition.

PS

Philippines also qualified in the 2014 FIBA World Cup for the first time since 1972. the 2nd best team in asia after Iran.

We need to shut up because Greece got a wild card? Watch them lose to Senegal.

Giannis has been told he will get an invite to train with the practice squad, and that IF he does very well in training, then he has a CHANCE, to make the team, as Spanoulis' backup, for about 8-10 minutes of playing time a game.

Keep in mind that Giannis was the 4th to 5th best player on Greece's under-20 team this summer. So he better improve by a hell of a lot, if he wants to make the senior men's team.

I don't care about the euroleague at all, but i have to admit, pero antic is the truth. Completely outperformed my expectations of him when he came to atlanta

Is it possible for a 30 year old rookie to make it to the rising stars game?

So you have details about who is on the team and what they were told when it hasn't even been announced and you only know due to "secret information".

Inbreeding is bad. Very bad.

Why would they treat their best player like that??? Reducing him to 8-10 mins.

Unleash the Greek Freak!!!!!!!

You mean like when Lithuania got a wild card "charity entrance" from FIBA in 2010?
