Theo PapaloukasAccording to , a Greek website solely dedicated to news regarding Olympiacos, Teo Papaloukas has decided to play in Eurobasket 2009, in Poland, next September.

There was much debate about whether Papaloukas would travel to Poland in autumn or sit out of the tournament because of fatigue, as he has been playing for Greece National Team non-stop for many years in a row.
Teo Papaloukas made up is mind after meeting with the Greece National team coach, Jonas Kazlauskas where the Lithuanian coach assured him that he would be allowed to follow his own training schedule which will allow him to rest and get in full shape in the latter stages of the training camp.
This will be Papaloukas' 5th Eurobasket in a row as he has also played in 2001, 2003, 2005 and 2007 while it will be the second tournament in a row where he will be the National Team's captain, after the Olympic Tournament last summer in Beijing.
Papaloukas will be the only veteran of the Greek National Team as the remaining 11 players will all be under the age of 30. It seems that Greece is one of the few nations who will travel to Poland with all their 'weapons' and they will be definitely one of the main favourites for a medal.
