Why not Greece? October 15, 2006

Posted by grhomeboy in Basketball.

With NBA commissioner David Stern saying last week that the NBA likely would return to Europe next season for another round of training camps and preseason games, Rockets guard Vassilis Spanoulis said Athens would be a good choice for an NBA training camp.

“In Greece, basketball is very (popular) right now,” Spanoulis said. “People would love it. They wait for this. We see it is happening in other countries and we wait for it to happen for our country.”

Olympic Sports Hall, the home court for Spanoulis’ Greek league team Panathinaikos, is considered one of the top basketball venues in Europe.
