Can Nigeria Cause Another Upset

[quote name='TeoTheGreek13' timestamp='1341664501' post='38333']

Having already seen Nigeria beating Lithuania and still manage to lose is pathetic and unacceptable. <img src='http://www.talkbasket.net/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thudown.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':thudown:' />



We played NO D throughout the tournament. Greece will always be a defensive minded team. Almost all of our players are good defenders but the same doesn't go for offense. It has always been like that in the last decade. Defense is the alpha and the omega in our game and will always be.

Last night, even when we were making baskets on offense, you knew, you felt, that it's gonna be very difficult to not get one back. They used their athletic abilities and schooled us. IMO, we should play only zone D from the time we lost the lead we had in half time. They made their shots, yeah, but they also made many baskets in the paint. Personally, I'd give them the 3 point shot and I'd live with that.



I really like basketball and I'll most likely watch as many games, in the Olympics, as I can but right now I don't feel like watching any game. <img src='http://www.talkbasket.net/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/bag.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Bag' />

Even our football team did a hell lot better..... <img src='http://www.talkbasket.net/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/baby.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Baby' />

Maybe we are a D-fensive tailored side, but we've ran out of excuses. We need to balance D and O according to circumstances. We let a shit kicking scrub like Ade Dagunduro run rings over us. This guy plays basketball about as good as I do. The only thing this scrub can do, is play the one on one and take the lucky shots That's it!! He's also a cheat along with the other Nigerian scrubs as proven during many pick and rolls by fouling many a times. The refs! where were they????.. he was given a non-existent foul and two FT's in the dying stages of the game, but had already committed a foul in the paint moments before. Now we sit back and let the asshole Yanks and everyone else who basically mock and belittle Greeks, Greek nationality, Greek crisis, Greek politics, and everything else that's Greek, and of course Greek Basketball period!





These scrubs should've lost the game by 20 points at minimum. Basketball IQ and spirit will always triumph over athleticism. Though we need to improve on athleticism, that still won't bring any guaranteed success. Our C's just weren't up to par, maybe a Koufos would've helped a little, as I don't like Sofo at all, but that's no excuse. We have the quality, the IQ and the skills to defeat teams like Nigeria, without even pulling a sweat. The dream has vanished, and we need to go back to the drawing board, and plan for the future immediately. Like I said I won't be watching Olympic basketball, especially with the lowly teams that have qualified.
