Old but gold.. :Why Greek A1 is a league for grown men? - Mar 7, 2012


POSTED BY:

E-mail *AddMe:
*AddMe's Articles



I keep looking at the performance of this years Greek players in the A1 and note that many of them are having a career season. Most of them older than 30.. Some of them approach late 30s.. Keep in mind that the nature of Greek league is totally different than the other European leagues. There is a lot of tactic, physical game and strong defense in the mix that are not in favor of a players statistics. For example a player who averages 15 p.p.g. in A1 could easily score 18-19 in another, fast pace league. I remember David Blatts saying, regarding his experience in Greek A1: 'Winning by 15 in Greece is like winning by 30 elsewhere in Europe..'

Lets take a look at those players who prove the size of Greek basketball tank..

Dimos Dikoudis: (2.06-F/C-77, 15.6 pt-62% FG-4.4 reb) He found his appetite after last years leadind presence in AEK Athens. Markopoulos paired him perfectly with Marcus Goree but the Americans absence affected him. Its the leagues most 'pleasant' comeback.

Giannis Kalambokis: (1.95-G-78, 12.7 pt-54% FG-2.6 reb) I don't remember how many times he scored in crucial moments when Paok had stuck in the offense. Kalambokis maintains his energy on the court and he rewarded with a good contract in Gordon Herberts Alba Berlin.The perfect example of a player that developed late in his career but reached the ultimate goal for this kind of athletes by making the National team.

Christos Tapoutos: (2.08-F-82, 14.9 pt-41.4% 3pt-5.9 reb) He remains one of the most all around offensive players in Greece. Last summer he worked a lot to improve his already good- shooting ability and this is obvious now in the court. Tapoutos has also improve his leadership in Aris-NCAA-team as a captain and the way he utilize his teammates. Ranks 5th on the leagues at scoring and rebounding and 4th at playerss evaluation system. No question about defense.. Last year he ranked last in A1 on fouls per minute (indicative of his defensive mood). If Tapoutos was an average defensive player he would have a spot at Panathinaikos-Olympiakos roster now..

Angelos Tsamis: (1.92-G-81, 12.5 pr-4.6 reb-3.5 ast) He has attracted all eyes playing the most mature basketball of his career. Tsamis is a combination of intelligence, strength (one of the strongest wing players in the league) hard work garnished with highly motivation. He is the best player of the league's biggest surprise this year.

Nestoras Kommatos: (2.03-F-77, 20.4 pt-6.6 reb-2.2 ast) Its totally ironic that Marousi won its first after Kommatos had already left for Italy. That doesnt really matter now.. The Greek forward was putting on a show in almost every game. His performances against Olympiakos & Panathinaikos will remain as 'classics' as we have many years to see a Greek player perform like this against those two teams. Kommatos left for Naples and Sant Antimo averaging 20.4 ppg (1st in the league) and 6.6 rpg (6th)..

Giannis Gagaloudis: (1.92-G-78, 15.6 pt-6.0 ast-1.5 stl) Gagaloudis is a similar case with his ex-teammate , Kommatos. Those two guys (plus Haritopoulos who currently plays at ASVEL) carried Marousi, spending almost 35 minutes in the court in every game. Gaga ,known for his passionate personality, lead the league in assists but Marousis tragic financial situation forced him to leave A1 and sign IN Cyprus and Apollon Limassol.

Sotiris Karapostolou: (1.94-G-78, 12.0 pt-2.6 reb-2.9 ast) His clutching ability and cold blood established him as Kavalas leader. Karapostolou is a multitool for coach Priftis as he can really play on every perimeter spot. Latelly he spends a lot of time at point guard position. Giving to his team many lineup options with his versatile presence.

Christoforos Stefanidis: (1.85-PG-80, 5.8 pt-2.1 ast-89.7 % FT) His numbers simply don't tell the truth here. Stefanidis is one of the most 'fun to coach' players in the league. Disciplined, brain and automated style of playing that every coach loves and expects from him to take the right decision in the crucial moment. Coach Priftis pairs him with Karapostolou in the final minutes of the close games, not fearing to bench his star (Michael Taylor) .

Kostas Charalampidis: (1.89-G-76, 17.0 pt-4.4 ast-91.0 % FT) The 'Greek Navarro'.. This no exaggeration (especially if you notice the way he gets-fouled and goes to the line). Kostas Vasiliadis maybe is the most famous Greek shoter but Charalambidis is -no second thoughts- the best. His game is at it's best ,not when he kills the opponent with consecutive drives and shots from every single spot but when he faces the league's best defensive teams which make him think and work harder. The way he reads the defense and chooses his move is amazing. Being one of the best pick n roll players in the country and after so many years in the league, Charalambidis performs with an NBAers confidence. He is only 36 years old..

In conclusion, the Greek A1 demands mature mind and guts. Only for grown men..

ASK Ippokratis KO (C) agreed terms with 20-year old point guard Elias Theodoridis (195-97). He has played for the last four seasons at Cretan Kings in the A1. A1 was a little too high level for him, where in 11 games he had just 0.8ppg last season. C will be definitely a better match and he can see more playing time   [read more]
