-    BACK TO BACK CHAMP V. SPANOULIS HAS HIS WORK CUT OUT VS DEEP REAL MADRID

1. REAL MADRID 88 OLYMPIACOS 71 - EUROJOHNBBALL always knew Greek PG Vassilis Spanoulis could compete at any league in the world, including the NBA and had top five PG potential, but his one NBA season with former Houston Rockets coach went horrible, as Van Gundy did not use the Vassilis Spanouis best trait of his game, from the TOP OF THE KEY position. Vassilis Spanoulis got tired of watching Tracy McGrady, Rafer Alston and Luther Head pound the ball at the top of the key, while he was STUCK IN THE 3 POINT SHOOTING CORNER, waiting for a pass late in the shot clock, when in the back of Spanoulis mind, he knew he was the better option as THE MAN AT THE TOP OF THE KEY, in Houston. Jeff Van Gundy had NO CLUE HOW CLUTCH the Greek PG on his Rockets bench was, even though Spanoulis took over late VS Chris Paul, Dywayne Wade, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard and Chris Bosh in the Greek win and the last loss for team USA 101-95 in international competetion.   Jeff Van Gundy was on NBA radio on April 14th on the Frank Isola show and after the interview, Frank started talking about the fued that started between Jeff Van Gundy VS Howard Stern, that is when EJBB decided to call the show and tell Frank Isola about the horrible stuck in the corner coaching style that Jeff Van Gundy used on Spanoulis and the fact that in his last head coaching job, Jeff Van Gundy lost a 2-0 lead to the Utah Jazz and lost game 7 at home in Houston, with Vassilis Spanoulis watching from the PINE, as Rafer Alston and Luther Head, both shot 30 percent on FG's from the lead guard spot. ( HOW DID THAT MOVE WORK OUT FOR YOU JEFF).  Frank Isola took the Jeff Van Gundy side, when EJBB said Spanoulis would be a top 5 NBA PG right now, if Jeff Van Gundy knew how to use him, as Frank Isola started naming PG's in the NBA better than Spanoulis, Tony Parker, was the best name he said, then he brought up an injured Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul, who has never even been to a Conference Finals, then Frank Isola named Kyrie Irving ( never in playoffs ) John Wall (Explosive, but not yet Spanoulis) and the one that had EJBB wondering what Frank was thinking was his Jeff Teague comment, nice young player, but Jeff Teague over what Spanoulis has done in his BBALL career, OH MY BAD Frank, they play in the NBA, the same NBA that has teams TANKING.  Frank Isola should use his BBALL connections in the NBA and ask GM's who they would take a young Spanoulis or Jeff Teague. That Jeff Teague comment was TOO MUCH by Frank Isola.    Vassilis Spanoulis returned to Europe and has won 3 Euroleague titles and has been named Euroleague Final Four MVP all three times, AS THE MAN AT THE TOP OF THE KEY.  Vassilis Spanoulis and Olympiacos have won the past two Euroleague tiltles, but the 31 year old Spanoulis has HIS WORK CUT OUT FOR HIM versus the DEEPEST SQUAD in Europe Real Madrid.

Spanoulis and Olympiacos won the title game VS Real Madrid last season, with Spanoulis taking over in the second half, but this Real Madrid squad is even DEEPER with the addtions of Ioannis Bourousis and Salah Mejri in the middle to go along with all of the perimeter threats, they already had.   In game one of their best of five playoff series, the depth of Real Madrid was too much for Spanoulis and Olympiacos, as Real Madrid won by 17 points to go up 1-0, winning in Spain and hoping to go up 2-0 on Thursday and Olympiacos hoping to steal game two and have the loud Greek crowd on their side for games 3 and 4.  The 31 year old Spanoulis did what he could with 18 points in 30 minutes, on 5-11 FG, 4-7(3PT), 5 assists, but for Olympiacos to have a shot in game two, Spanoulis must put up a 25 plus game and keep his TO's down from the 5 today and has to make his FT's, just 4-7 today. Spanoulis was followed by back to back Euroleague champion PF Giorgios Printezis with 10 points, while new big man Cedric Simmons added 8 points.        Real Madrid was led by their Spanish four big perimeter threats with Rudy Fernandez leading with 20 points, on 7-11 FG, 4-6(3PT), 2-2 FT and was followed by Nikola Mirotic with 15 points, while Sergio Llull and Sergio Rodriguez added 12 points apiece.

 

-    FC BARCELONA GO UP 1-0  BOSTJAN NACHBAR & J.C NAVARRO 31 PTS COMBINED

2. FC BARCELONA 88 GALATASARAY 61 - Bostjan Nachbar (19 PT) Carlos Arroyo (14 PT)

-   VASSILIS SPANOULIS HIT ANOTHER BIG SHOT TO ADD TO HIS KING OF EUROPE LABEL

1. OLYMPIACOS 68 PANATHINAIKOS 65 - The King of ALL MEDIA, Howard Stern ripped former Houston Rockets head coach Jeff Van Gundy, who is now NBA top analyst on ESPN and ABC television coverage of the NBA, after the KING of morning drive radio Howard Stern decided to leave early from his front row seats of the New York Knicks game, he was attending versus the Nets.  Howard Stern decided to rip Jeff Van Gundy on his Sirius radio show and said being NUMBER ONE on radio, means leaving fun things early and asked if Jeff ever won an NBA title.  Stern did not know that the last coaching job Jeff Van Gundy held was with the Houston Rockets and in the 2006-07 playoffs versus the Utah Jazz, Jeff Van Gundy helped the Rockets give up a 2-0 lead in the series and even with home court advantage over Utah and then a 3-2 lead, Jeff and Houston lost game 7 on their home court in Houston, it was the last coaching job he held, until he became the VOICE FOR ALL THE BIG GAMES IN THE NBA.  Howard Stern is a casual basketball fan, and has no idea who Vassilis Spanoulis is, and many NBA hardcore NBA fans also have little clue on Spanoulis, because of the terrible job that Jeff Van Gundy did with Greek PG Vassilis Spanoulis, during the 2006-07 NBA season.  Jeff Van Gundy must have been watching a BASEBALL game during the 2006 FIBA world championships in Japan, as Greek PG Vassilis Spanoulis led his Greek national team in scoring in a Semifinal 101-95 win versus team USA, led by LeBron James, Dywayne Wade, Chris Paul, Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony and coach K. It was the last time team USA has lost in international play, as Spanoulis did what he does best, attack with the ball from the top of the key, but in his one season in Houston, Jeff Van Gundy stuck Spanoulis in the corner like he was just a SPOT UP KYLE KORVER 3 point shooter and Van Gundy let Tracy McGrady, Rafer Alston, Luther Head and even John Lucas Jr., pound the ball at the top of the key.  Rafer Alston shot .338 on FG and .320 on 3 point shots in the 7 game loss to Utah and Luther Head shot .306 FG and .261 on deep 3 point looks, while the Greek guy that took over versus team USA and many big games with Panathinaikos, could just watch from the bench, as his one NBA year went horrible with Jeff Van Gundy using Spanoulis the WRONG WAY.

Since his return to Europe, Vassilis Spanoulis has become the KING of European BBALL, winning THREE Euroleague titles and BEING NAMED MVP in ALL THREE FINALS.  Did Jeff Van Gundy watch those Euroleague finals ?   EJBB thinks he was watching a BASEBALL game instead and EJBB laughs when Van Gundy was covering the NBA draft and a Euro player was on the board, he had NO CLUE, just like he had NO CLUE he had a star on his bench in Houston.     Greek fans have watched Spanoulis takeover many games and SHOULD THANK JEFF VAN GUNDY, as today on April 10th in the biggest rivalry in all of European basketball, Vassilis Spanoulis hit another big game winning shot, as he pulled up and shot over 6 foot 9 inch Panathinaikos player James Gist to give Olympiacos the WIN.   Howard Stern was right, he knows what it is to be NUMBER ONE in radio for years and Vassilis Spanoulis could have shown NBA fans the big game shots that he has made in Europe, as the NUMBER ONE KING, but Jeff Van Gundy did not let him do his TOP OF THE KEY THING, and now Jeff Van Gundy is the VOICE OF THE NBA FINALS, saying what is RIGHT and WRONG, but just like Howard Stern, EJBB just thinks he sounds like A DOUCHE.
