I then acknowledged that this is not official when someone asked that.

It's an inside source, telling you something ahead of time, so of course it can't be anything official.

Besides 2, if I were you, I would've wanted that Spanoulis wouldn't be in the world cup, because if Greece meets USA, it will be a total massacre, and yet again you'll have to blame the referees like a crying little bitch you are. Learn how to accept losing, if you did, your life would maybe look a little different. Think about it

Spanoulis is double teamed in every game genius. Nice way to instantly out yourself as a troll. I did not read the rest of your post. Try harder next time.

tbh Giannis would be a better player for Greece than Spanoulis in my opinion...

Euroleague has to be an admin's account.

There's no other reason for someone who consistently posts stuff that isn't about the NBA in the NBA Forum not being banned from the site and the threads rarely if ever get deleted/closed/moved.

then don't state things when they aren't confirmed yet..easy no?

besides it ain't so sure Greece will get the wildcard


Quote:
China - A huge market with an ailing national team. In truth it would take something extraordinary for China not to get a bid. They can book their flights.

Tunisia - Failed to make it out of the last 16 in AfroBasket. No hope.

Nigeria - Were it any other year I’d give them a legitimate shot but they are at the back of a long, long, queue.

Brazil - Considering they sent a weak line-up to Venezuela, there’s a good chance they knew they were in Spain before flopping violently at FIBA Americas.

Canada - Before Venezuela all Canada looked to need for a wildcard was to assure FIBA that Anthony Bennett and Andrew Wiggins would travel to Spain. Now even probably won’t be enough. Four teams from in and around North America will be in Spain and there’s a glut of European teams to fill.

Germany - FIBA would love to give them a wildcard given the sport’s development in Deutschland. Tough to see them getting it.

Russia - Could the Russians actually miss out? Crazier things have happened. They are in the discussion but no locks by any means.

Turkey - They had better hope that money (the clean type before you kill me in the comments) talks an awful lot. Turkey and Turkish business has done a lot to make FIBA happy. They may feel they’re owed a wildcard.

Greece - Arguably the easiest European side to leave out, despite performing best of the four mentioned here. It would be strange to see the last team to beat the USA in a competitive game absent from the World Cup.

Yeah, I don't know who you are quoting, but it's obviously some idiot American NBA only fan who does know what the hell he is talking about.

This is from an inside source within FIBA. This is done, at 90%. The only other country with any chance left is Italy, and there shot is 10% at best.

And even in the money side, Greece supposedly even paid FIBA double what they did.

Euroleague likes to troll but the guys trolling him are much worse.
who ever watched spanoulis play in Europe those last years and thinks he wouldnt EASILY average 18-6 if he was allowed to play true PG and leader of a team and lead them to many wins is fcking delusional. dude would be a top 5n PG in the NBA right now

What does the phrase fake lithuanian troll actually mean?
Do you mean faking that I'm from Lithuania? I live in Žaliakalnis, Kaunas, near a river Nemunas, that goes through most of Lithuania. If that doesn't make you believe in my being lithuanian then I don't know what does. To be fair, you are the one, who should prove being from Alabama, as this deep obsession with Spanoulis is way too stupid even for a redneck
