Panathinaikos has had a rocky year this season, as they lost their chance to repeat as Euroleague champs, going 0-4 in the round of 16 play, and losing twice already to Greek rival Olympiacos, in last weeks Greek Cup and earlier in Greek leauge play. After 3 big loses, 1 to Olympiacos in the Greek Cup , and 2 at the hands of FC Barcelona, the next game could not come quick enough for the veteran Panathinaikos squad, that has deep pride, and has read too many articles of how they might be old and content of their past glory. The 3 guard rotation that has been so good for Panathinaikos in past Championship years, was on hand again today, but instead of Milos Vujanic or Sarunas Jasikevicius being the 3rd man it was Drew Nicholas ,who came up with a major 27 point effort on 7-12 from the 3 point line. Vasillis Spanoulis had 22 points in 27 minutes, but it was the Dimitrios Diamantidis who had his usual good game on defese, holding Milos Teodosic to 6 points on 2-9 shooting from the field, and also playing good defense on Theo Papaloukas, who torched Panathinaikos with 4-4 on 3 point shots, in the previous contest, of Greek league play, but this game Theo only had 2 points on 1-4 shooting. Diamantidis scored 26 points on 9-10 field goals, 4-5 from 3 point range, while breaking down the Olympiacos defense for 11 assists, finding open 3 point shooters, Nicholas and Spanoulis. Olympiacos, who was dominated bt Nikola Pekovic last season, at the center position, this time held Pekovic to 6 points in 9 minutes, as he again got into foul trouble, and Mike Batiste only had 10 points in 24 minutes, while Olympiacos got 18 points out of Big Sofo and 15 points from Nicola Vujcic. The inside play has to get better, if Panathinaikos, will repeat as Greek league Champioins, because the amazing 15-32 shooting from 3 point land, will not be there for a long tough series, they must get the dominant inside play back to beat Olympiacos, who was without 2 key players, Linas Kleiza and Ioannis Bourousis. This may be the last time the vetran Panathinaikos players will be together, and Spanoulis, Batiste and Diamantidis, will not give up their Greek title without a good fight as was shown today.

     NBA NEEDS A MID-SEASON NBA CUP TOURNAMENT JUST LIKE EUROPE HAS

European basketball leagues just finished their mid-season Cup tournaments, that give fans a reason to really get charged for a mid-season basketball game. The Cup system in Europe has the top 8 teams play  a loser go home tournament, just like the NCAA college system has. The European leagues still have their championship playoff systems, at the end of the year, with best of 3, and best of 5 game series, but the 1 game match-ups, give teams with lesser salary, a chance at knocking off the big boys, and watch hard fought games, with every possession meaning something, just like the last game in a playoff series. The NBA could have this Cup system, in major markets like New York, Chicago and Philadelphia, with that home city team, having an automatic bid, and the remaining spots going to the top 7 records at the All-Star break. Instead of having  3 days off, at the All-Star break, make it 7 by playing the Cup challenge 1st, then have the All-Star game, in the later part of the week. It would get major market teams involved, and it could give the NBA, the college fan that likes the 1 game format. Players like Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard and Kevin Garnett, would take this real serious, as none of them like to lose. After watching this playoff type of hard play, the casual NBA fan, that says college ball is better, might want to checkout the NBA playoffs come the spring. ( JUST A THOUGHT COMMISSIONER DAVID STERN MIGHT WANT TO LOOK INTO)

They will meet 1 more time during the Greek regular season, and could meet again in another Greek championship Finals, that will have the loudest fans in all of basketball, showing incredible passion for their 2 teams.

PANATHINAIKOS LOSES CHANCE TO REPEAT AS EUROLEAGUE CHAMP PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 27 February 2010 15:16

CLICK TO SEE VIDEO
The dominance that Panathinaikos showed last season, has not been the same this year, as they lost their chance at repeating as Euroleague champions. One of the most high profile teams in Europe, is 0-4 in Group play of the final 16 , as they have lost to fellow Greek league team, Maroussi 80-78, Partizan 64-59, and 2 times to Spanish heavyweight FC Barcelona, 83-71 on the road and last game at home 70-67. Last season the Greens, won all 3 trophies, winning the Greek Cup and Greek league title over rival Olympiacos, and also won the Euroleague crown for the 2nd time in in 3 years, beating Russian power CSKA Moscow in both title games. This season, injuries have taken a toll on Panathinaikos getting into a good rythm, as 4 key players of past glory, have been out. Mike Batiste, who does much of the  damage inside was out, along with Costas Tsartsaris, who is like a coach on the floor, doing alot of the dirty work of setting good screens and rotating properly on the defensive end, he will not wow you on the box score, but his overall game was missed by the veteran squad. Also the guard rotation, was never intact, like the 2 previous Euroleague championship years. Panathinaikos, always has had a good 3 guard rotation, with Milos Vujanic in 2007 , and with Spanoulis, Diamantidis and Sarunas Jasikevicius last year, but with defensive ace Diamantidis being out early in the year and Sarunas Jasikevicius out most of the season, Panathinaikos, was out of sync and has had a tough time catching up all year. FC Barcelona, is loaded this year with good young players and veteran players that have been playing well all season, with no major injuries and after taking the initial Panathinaikos punch, being down 17-5, veteran players, Roger Grimau, Jaka Lakovic and Juan Carlos Navarro pulled away 70-67 to dash the hopes of the Panathinaikos players and their loud fans. Panathinaikos is 0-2 versus Olympiacos this year, and has the Greek league playoffs left to salvage this season. Milos Teodosic has picked his play up this season, to a level almost equal of how he played at Eurobasket 2009 for Serbia, but veteran players on Panathinaikos have major pride in them, which means a Greek league Championship of Olympiacos vs. Panathinaikos should be a classic, if both get by other worthy Greek challengers, like Maroussi and other tough teams.
