Just like the national Greek soccer team last year, this year the Greek basket national team on Eurobasket shows some great defense, but they are _terrible_ on putting points themselves. Aah, where are the days of Nick Gallis, the best Greek player of all times, and one of the best in Europe ever. In his time in the 80s and beginning of the 90s, the norm was to put 30-40 points in every game. His record was 62 points in a single game. After he stopped playing basketball around ’96, the Greeks have not being able to create a new player that is even close to being a team leader. The current national team has no leader, and they are terribly bad on putting the ball in the basket. They are kinda saved only because of their defense capabilities.
