Is this the fall of the Green Empire and the rise of the red one? - May 28, 2012

Konstantinos
Sloukas
After three games the 'tired' players of Panathinaikosare proving more and more that they are not the players and the team used to be the last decade. The Greens are tired and game by game are proving it strongly, last night in their worst game (their worst game in final round of the Greek league, the last decade) lost another the game from the talented youngsters of Olympiakos with 84-72 and the series is now to the 1-2 bringing the games in the green home court of OAKA, witht he greens to try and balance the series in order to play their do or die game in SEF at the end of the week.

Obradovic's greens seems to be in a low morale and low psychology the last couple of weeks and the one game won in OAKA by just a basket says a lot, even though the greens were running a difference of +16 and +10 few minutes before the end of the game, they were so near to lose it and that is a sign which shows quite easily the current status of the team. There is no winning spirit in the Green team, as it used to be during all the previous seasons. With no passion and no enthusiasm the team of Giannakopoulos brothers seems to simply wait for its destiny as already many players are ready to leave the team this summer (due to the new financial deductions) and a totally successful green circle comes to an end. There is no real help from Logan, Smith, Sato, Calathes brothers and Maric while the veterans Mike Batiste (203-F-77, college: Arizona St.), Tsartsaris, and Dimitris Diamantidis (196-G-80) seem to be helpless and lonely, Perperoglou and Kaimakoglou with Vougioukas are not steady players and the red defense is blogging them quite easy, while Jasikevicius after the game against the Russians of CSKA simply stopped playing productively.

The last good game played by the Greens was the one against CSKA in the Semis of the final four and it was lost (with the way it was lost...) and since then in all four games played after that (three against Olympiakos and one against Barcelona) the green team is showing so many negative signs and is obvious that it will need a small miracle to save the season with any other trophy than the Greek Cup won earlier this year in (probably) last season for many players and the coaching team with Panathinaikos.

The Green Empire is coming to an end and rumors are helping this faster as the behind the scenes news do take Mike Batiste in Spain (with Zoc), Calathes back in the States, Saras back to Lithuania and Logan in Israel. All these are simply rumors which could turn to be true quite easy, especially if Panathinaikos loses (for the first time in the last decade and in play-offs games) in its home court the 4th game of the series and the Greek champion changes hands to travel all the way to Piraeus and the reds with a 1-3 victories.

On the other hand, Olympiakos and Aggelopoulos brothers seems to become the new emperors in the sport (especially if Giannakopoulos brothers go home this season as they announced so) the reds after the magnificent game against CSKA and their second European trophy (the first one took place in 1997) beat quite easy both games in SEF and they are aggressive enough to even Dare to beat the Greens in their home court in their 4th in between game. The young players of Olympiakos, Kostas Papanikolaou (204-F-90), Katsivelis, Evangelos Mantzaris (196-G-90) and Konstantinos Sloukas (197-G-90) are not young any more as they are proving their temperament and passion in the court as after the European trophy they are playing more mature than ever, and against the green monsters Dimitris Diamantidis, Kaimakoglou, Mike Batiste etc the super kids are doing fantastic with the assistance of the old duet of Spanoulis and Printezis and the American passion of Hines and Dorsey, Olympiakos had build a team to be a protagonist for at least a decade or so.

The red empire has been developed through the financial crisis is more Hellenic than ever and is more powerful and passionate than any other time in the latest history of Olympiakos who used to have a powerful team at the mid 90s but with Serbs and Croats and not with Greeks, now is different! The path which was designed by the greens was copied and pasted by the Reds with the same success. In no time Olympakos kicked off all his NBA stars and hired the Greek super kids, that was it!! The passion, talent and the experience gained from all the European tournaments all these years for the Greek trio (Konstantinos Sloukas, Evangelos Mantzaris and Kostas Papanikolaou) brought the Reds to the success route and after the European trophy are ready to beat up and replace 3D and his teammates.
In less than five days we will be able to witness the replacement of the Green Basketball Empire with the Red one.. unless 3D has a different opinion which honestly we doubt it as it seems to be tragically alone.


So, is the end of the green empire and the beginning of the Red one? Stay tuned in a few days we will be able to know it.
