-               CROWD NOISE AT 73-69 GAME - LOUDEST CROWD IN BBALL WORLD

-     PANATHINAIKOS BEAT 2015 GREEK CHAMPS OLYMPIACOS IN FOUR POINT BATTLE

1. Panathinaikos 73 Olympiacos 69 - BOXSCORE - Olympiacos and Panathinaikos already played this season in the Greek cup quarterfinals in an EMPTY arena, due to past fan violence versus players and Panathinaikos got the win 70-64 to advance to the Greek Cup semis and today in OAKA arena the Green squad made the home fans happy again, as they beat Olympiacos 73-69 in an early season Greek A1 battle.

Panathinaikos was led in scoring by new SG, Dominican James Feldeine with 12 points, on 4-10 FG, making 2-5 from deep, 2-3 FT and was followed by vet Greek stretch PF Antonis Fotsis with 11 points, on 3-5 FG, making 2-4 from deep, 3-4 FT and Serbian Center Miroslav Raduljica also had 11 points, on 5-8 inside baskets, while Serbian vet SF Sasha Pavlovic added 10 points in the win.

Olympiacos was led by 21 year old Greek SF Ioannis Papapetrou with 13 points, on 4-5 FG, making 3-4 from deep and hit a big late 3 to get Olympiacos close, while Greek PF Georgios Printezis also had 13 points, on 4-12 FG, while Greek PG Vassilis Spanoulis had 10 assists, but Panathinaikos did a good job of holding him to 3-11 FG, 1-6 from deep and Euroleague round one MVP PF Patric Young was held to just 6 points, 5 rebounds in 22 minutes, on 3-5 FG.     EJBB said losing Kostas Sloukas to Fenerbahce could hurt Olympiacos this year, when the older Spanoulis has an off FG shooting game as Sloukas has looked great in the early Fenerbahce season, with a 11 point, 11 assist game in a win versus the NBA Nets and yesterday Sloukas was perfect on 18 points, 6-6 FG, 2-2 from deep, 4-4 FT in a road TBL Turkish win over Euroleague squad Darussafaka.   D.J Strawberry was a nice signing by Olympiacos in the summer, but thus far he has not cracked the Olympiacos rotation, and the off the bench role off Sloukas the past few years is something Strawberry might not be used to, as he was one of the go to guys with Karsiyaka in the 2015 Turkish TBL upset title, that he and Bobby Dixon and Kenny Gabriel led them to, defeating Fenerbahce & Anadolu Efes.

1. Panathinaikos 70 Olympiacos 64 - BOXSCORE - D. Diamantidis (16 PT) G. Printezis (19 PT)

The Greek Cup Quarterfinals had the BIGGEST RIVALRY IN EUROPEAN BASKETBALL between Panathinaikos and 2015 Greek A1 champions Olympiacos play in an EMPTY STADIUM, due to past issues of fan violence against players.  Panathinaikos won the game to advance to the Semis, as Greek 35 year old PG Dimitris Diamantidis led in scoring with 16 points in 25 minutes, making 1-1 from 3 point land and 13-16 FT and was followed by new SG James Feldeine with 14 points, on 4-10 FG, 2-5(3PT), 4-4 FT, while Vladimir Jankovic added 12 points, new SF Sasha Pavlovic 8 points and PG Nick Calathes added 7 points, 4 assists in the win.     Olympiacos was led by PF Giorios Printezis with 19 points, on 7-11 FG, 1-3(3PT), 4-5 FT, while SG Matt Lojeski added 14 points and Panathinaikos did a good job of containing 33 year old Greek PG Vassilis Spanoulis to just 2 points in 21 minutes, on 1-8 FG, 0-5(3PT), 5 assists and 5 TO's.    EJBB thinks losing Kostas Sloukas to Fenerbahce could hurt Olympiacos this season, when the older Spanoulis has one of those off nights with FG stroke.

-     FENERBAHCE SHOWS NEW ROSTER IS LOADED THIS YEAR BEATING NBA NETS

1. Fenerbahce 101 Brooklyn 96 - Jan Vesely (18 PT) Brook Lopez (18 PT)

Turkish Euroleague squad Fenerbahce made many big moves in the 2015 summer, to help them in their quest for the 2016 Euroleague title and help them grab their Turkish TBL title back, after being upset by Karsiyaka in the TBL semis last year, as they grabbed (JJ Barea Like) USA PG Bobby Dixon from the Karsiyaka squad that beat them last season, to lead from the PG spot and also signed NBA players Italian SF Luigi Datome and Macedonian PF Pero Antic, to help them get back on top in the TBL.

Bobby Dixon, Pero Antic and SG Ricky Hickman were not available for the game in Brooklyn tonight, but Greek 25 year old PG Kostas Sloukas, SHOWED WHY EJBB PUT HIM ON THE TOP 25 LIST LAST SEASON OF EUROS NOT DRAFTED BUT COULD HELP NBA TEAMS, as Kostas Sloukas showed signs of being a clutch player, by hitting big shots, being used by Olympiacos as a combo-guard next to Vassilis Spanoulis in their BACK TO BACK Euroleague titles in 2012 and 2013, but Sloukas wanted a bigger role and more minutes on the court, so he signed with Fenerbahce in the summer and tonight versus, Jarrett Jack and Shane Larkin, Sloukas looked DIMITRIS DIAMANTIDIS LIKE dishing the ball for a game high 11 assists in 32 minutes and only had 3 TO's, scoring 11 points, 3-8 FG, 1-2(3PT), 4-5 FT, 2 steals, while another player on the EJBB TOP 25 LIST, Serbian SF Nikola Kalinic also played well with 8 points, 5 rebounds in 16 minutes, on 3-3 FG, 2-2(3PT), but the biggest surprise of the night came from 17 year old Turkish center Omer Yurtseven, who played versus NBA Grown Men for 15 minutes, scoring 8 big points, 7 rebounds, 1 blocked shot, on 3-4 FG, 2-2 FT, as NBA scouts might have found another young gem for the NBA draft, as Dragan Bender got hype at MSG, but Yurtseven also just threw his name into NBA Lottery acclaim for the following 2017 draft.

Former NBA PF Czech Jan Vesely played tonight like the NBA LOTTERY PICK he was in the past, as he led Fenerbahce with 18 points in 32 minutes, on 9-14 FG, 6 rebounds and former NBA SF Italian Luigi Datome showed why he was signed in the NBA in the past, as he scored 16 points in 29 minutes, on 5-12 FG, making 4-6 from DEEP, 2-2 FT, while Serbian SG and Suns first round pick Bogdan Bogdanovic got the better of Croatian SG Bojan Bogdanovic of the Nets and a former Fenerbahce player, as the Serbian Bogdan had 17 points, compared to just 3 points for the Croatian Bojan.   Turkish SG Melih Mahmutoglu also had 10 big points in the Fenerbahce win, on 4-7 FG, 2-4(3PT), in 22 minutes and the Nets were led in scoring by Center Brook Lopez with 18 points, on 6-12 FG, 1-1(3PT), 5-8 FT and was followed by SG Wayne Ellington with 16 points.     Fenerbahce made 11-21 from 3 point land compared to 7-18 for the Nets.

1. EA7 Milano 76 Maccabi Tel Aviv 72 - K Simon, R Hummel (15 PT) S Landesberg (15 PT)

The second game of the USA Euroleague tour took place in New York on Sunday afternoon with ten thousand fans in MSG to watch Milano play the heavily supported Maccabi Tel Aviv club from Israel, with the majority of the crowd rooting for Maccabi.   New York Knicks players, the 4th pick in the 2015 NBA draft, Latvian, Kristaps Porzingis was in the building sitting in the same area as Greek SG Thanasis Antetekounmpo and Knicks GM Steve Mills and they watched 17 year old Croatian PF Dragan Bender play well again in the first half, making shots and USING HIS LENGTH AGAIN, to change shots at the rim and jumpers taken by Milano offensive players, but Bender did not get big minutes on the floor today.    Milano was led by Croatian SG Krunoslav Simon and USA SF Robbie Hummell with 15 points apiece from the outside, while Maccabi Tel Aviv was led by USA SF Sylven Landesberg with 15 points.     Maccabi Tel Aviv honored Nikola Vujcic, Anthony Parker, Derrick Sharp, David Blu, Earl Williams and Tal Brody at halftime.    EJBB asked Tal Brody about another New Jersey born great basketball player, Greek Legend Nikos Galis not being in Naismith Hall of Fame and Tal Brody called him Nicky and said he was one of the best and it depends on the Greek federation of basketball to push Galis and his 33 PPG career into Naismith.

 

-  OCT. 1st - MACCABI TEL AVIV 85 MILANO 79 - CHICAGO DRAGAN BENDER WATCH

-              EXTENDED HIGHLIGHTS 85-79 WIN MACCABI TEL AVIV

-     17 YR OLD - DRAGAN BENDER VS MILANO - 10(PT)21(M)3-7(FG)1-3(3PT)3-4(FT)2(BK)

It was the first ever Euroleague game between two teams from Europe in the USA in Chicago tonight and the main reason so many NBA scouts and NBA GM's were in the building was to watch 7 foot tall Croatian PF Dragan Bender play with Maccabi Tel Aviv and the 17 year old skilled player showed he was not fazed by all of the attention, as he helped Maccabi Tel Aviv to the win, playing 21 minutes and scoring 10 points, but also showed NBA scouts and GM's that he has some Andrei Kirilenko in his game on the defensive end, blocking shots and using his length to guard Italian league MVP of the 2014 Finals Alessandro Gentile at the top of the key and did a good job of keeping Gentile thinking about the Bender length, as Gentile tried to shake him off the dribble from the top of the key.    Alessandro Gentile is one of the best young wing scorers in Europe from the SF spot, that is why the Houston Rockets, who have the Gentile Draft rights are watching his games until he makes the move to join the NBA and Gentile will get a shot to drive past Bender again in New York at MSG on Sunday, as the same two clubs play again in game two of the USA tour and you can bet many NBA scouts and NBA GM's will be in MSG to watch what the 17 year old Bender can do versus grown men.   Dragan Bender is a combo of Kristaps Porzingis, Nikola Mirotic, Nemanja Bjelica and has some Dirk Nowitzki to his offensive game and now has shown, he could be a version of Andrei Kirilenko on the defensive end of an NBA court, using his length to cover wing players.   Bender started out well in Chicago and if he stays in the rotation of MaccabiTel Aviv, this will be another great season of watching his games and his stats ALA Mario Hezonja and Kristaps Porzingis before they declared for the NBA draft.     2016 will be the DRAGAN BENDER WATCH in the Euroleague, for NBA Mock Drafts.

-      KOSTAS PAPANIKOLAOU WAIVED BY DENVER - PHILADELPHIA GOOD FIT

After being traded to the Denver Nuggets in the Ty Lawson trade, Greek SF-PF Kostas Papanikolaou looked like he would get a fresh NBA start with a team that could use his Glue Guy traits, that he showed in Europe helping Olympiacos, led by Greek PG Vassilis Spanoulis, win BACK TO BACK Euroleague titles in 2012 and 2013, but his one and only season in the NBA was spent with the Houston Rockets, who RARELY feed the post and think JACKING UP 3 POINT SHOTS AT A RECORD CLIP WILL WIN A TITLE. Kostas Papanikolaou was STUCK IN THE 3 POINT CORNER in Houston, as the Rockets wanted Papanikolaou to be a Kyle Korver or Steve Novak type of player that made corner 3's after James Harden got tired of POUNDING the ball at the top of the key.   As EJBB said before Kostas Papanikolaou can hit some 3 point shots, but he is more of a Glue-Guy type of player that plays good Defense, looks for the open man in the offense and is good at BACK DOOR CUTS off feeds to the big men in the post, but Houston RARELY Feed the Post, even though they have Dwight Howard and the BEST POST MOVES in the NBA with Donatas Motiejunas, who makes defenders LOOK SILLY with DREAM SHAKES and has the best use of BOTH HANDS in the Post in the NBA.   David Pick was First to report that Denver would waive Papanikolaou after his trade on August 1st, and today it happened Papanikolaou was waived, because the 4.7 million dollar deal of his contract was not guaranteed, so Papanikolaou will have to look for a new squad, as he will become a free agent.      EJBB says that the Philadelphia 76ers are a Good fit for Papanikolaou, who just drafted Duke Center Jahlil Okafor  with the 3rd pick of the 2015 NBA draft and Philadelphia will play INSIDE-OUT, something Papanikolaou was used to with Olympiacos and FC Barcelona and with the Greek national team.    The Sixers signing Papanikolaou would not cost EXTREME MONEY and Papanikoalou wants to stay in the NBA, but get some minutes on the court, playing the STYLE he is used to INSIDE-OUT and with Okafor in the middle, the Sixers are the perfect fit, who are still waiting for Croatian SF-PF Dario Saric to come to the NBA.  Papanikolaou has Euroleague championship games under his belt and if the Sixers signed Papanikolaou and he got minutes on the court, many Greek-Americans would show up to the games to root on their Greek player, just a thought, some EMPTY seats could be filled with Greek national PRIDE.
