Georgios Diamantakos Update - Dominating At European Under-20 Championship
I give an update here on Georgios Diamantakos. Remember that before I talked about him here and whole board was claiming he was 6-9 or 6-10 and I had to convince everyone he was actually 7-0.
Finally, I did with proof of team photos and updated height listings.
Anyway, now he is 18 years old and he is now 7-1 in shoes. He is listed as 6-11 ½ in FIBA site but that is barefoot height.
Anyway, so he is 18 years old and he is 7-1 in shoes. He plays with Euroleague club Panathinaikos, although this last season just in the practice squad. But still on the men's senior team.
Anyway, now he is dominating at the European Under-18 Championship so far. It is just only 3 games till now, but look at his numbers.
Yes he has a great tournament so far and torched Russia with 33 and 15. he had double doubles in all three games. Don't want to to hairsplitting but 1 block and no assist so far in three games could be better but hey he is really good so far. His 33/15 game earned them their first win.
Please don't say dominating in every post you make but Diamantakos is playing good so far.
I saw him play a year ago, he was already a man amongst boys.. he will make some noise in the NBA, I project him in the mid late lottery
To our greek friends, do you know the term "folies aux deux"?
Meh, another greek that will never get drafted because of NBA's bias against greek players. You better look at Arvydas Sabonis's youngest son Domantas who is averaging 17 points and 17 boards a game as well as 3 assists despite being years younger than majority of players in competition.
F*ck you, I was about to post that!
He is big prospect
But by my opinion 7'0 PF from Latvia Kristaps Porzingis is bigest prospect at U-18 championship. Remeber that name, he might be prospect with bigest upside in whole europe since Dirk Nowitzki
At moment he does not dominate, but he is jet to cathch his age groupe in physical development. But Kid is amazing. Has shooting touch, athletic abilitys, handles ball amazing for height, has very good athletic abitys, has good understanding of game, grat shoot block timeing, lenght. Kid is just pure talent. Only thing questionable is his frame, but we will see how much he will get wider when his development is done. I can defentley see him being first pick oveall i 2-3 years
Great thing for him he plays for Spanish Cajasol and is coached by Aito, probably best coach in whole europe for young prospects
1. Your first statement is completely false - nobody was claiming he's 6'9-6'10. Why? Because NOBODY on here new who he was!!!
2. How can you say he's "dominating" when his team has lost 2 out of three? Even by a combined 2 points - you don't lose to Czech Republic or Bosnia and Herzegovina (no offense) if you're "dominating"...
I speak french and this doesnt mean &$#%#&@! lol
"Folie à deux (/fɒˈli ə ˈduː/; French pronunciation: [fɔli a d̪ø]; French for "a madness shared by two"), or shared psychosis, is a psychiatric syndrome in which symptoms of a delusional belief are transmitted from one individual to another. The same syndrome shared by more than two people may be called folie à trois, folie à quatre, folie en famille or even folie à plusieurs ("madness of many"). Recent psychiatric classifications refer to the syndrome as shared psychotic disorder (DSM-IV) (297.3) and induced delusional disorder (F.24) in the ICD-10, although the research literature largely uses the original name. The disorder was first conceptualized in 19th century French psychiatry by Charles Lasègue and Jean-Pierre Falret and so also known as Lasègue-Falret Syndrome."
Google it my friend
I agree with seniokas 100 %.. Not only the NBA is, but the forum's biased against greek player/poster.
Why not stop answering his posts? Just don't react; he (and his twin Greek Baller) will disappear after a while.
Hey, I know all about EB but this post isn't so ~psychooooooooo~ so give the poor fella a break. Heck, he didn't even say that Diamantakos would dominate Howard with ease. Which he would. lololol
