    Where have the greeks found the money to pay the referees … Unbelievable the foul on Mirotic they didn’t call, he could have been seriously injured. Hopefully the Greeks morale improves and they can pay off their debts …

    So much bitterness…. that you confuse economy with a basketball match !
    What happened is obvious but your morale is something you have to deal with !
    learn to loose … and accept and respect whatever the result is ,,,
    but obviously from where you are from this kind of morale is unknown to you!
    I am not suprised !

    @Gnieb, LOOK AT THE SCORE BOARD!!!!!!!

    1. Your dept is much bigger than ours, go check it for yourself.
    2. The referees are getting paid by the Euroleague.

    3. Real had the chance to win the game but their balls where much smaller than ours.
    4. We like making love to queens (Greek Lovers). Now take the money for the cab and go home.

    It is so sad that you can’t recognize that olympiakos players were much better. And let me remind you 2 things.

    First, you also have a debt, greater than ours

    625,340,890,548 > 372,685,710,844

    Second, none real basketball fan will ever forget what spanish people did at the mundobasket at Japan. I bet that 1/4 of your national debt was given to the referees, i mean, i can’t find another way to explain what happened.

    Peace
