Greek Players 2013 NBA Draft Watch

This is the thread where I will give updates on the Greek players that have a chance to be drafted by the NBA in 2013.

Vassilis Kavvadas

Age: 20

Position: PF/C

Height: 6-9

Team: Panionios

League: Greek League / Eurocup

Linos Chrysikopoulos

Age: 19

Position: SF

Height: 6-9

Team: Biella

League: Italian League

Dimitrios Katsivelis

Age: 20

Position: PG/SG

Height: 6-6

Team: Olympiacos

League: Greek League / Euroleague

Georgios Georgakis

Age: 21

Position: PF/C

Height: 6-9

Team: Olympiacos

League: Greek League / Euroleague

Manoulis Koukoulas

Age: 21

Position: C

Height: 6-11

Team: Kolossos

League: Greek League

Andreas Kanonidis

Age: 21

Position: SF

Height: 6-7

Team: Peristeri

League: Greek League

Giannoulis Larentzakis

Age: 19

Position: PG/SG

Height: 6-5

Team: Ikaros

League: Greek League

Spyros Motsenigos

Age: 20

Position: SG

Height: 6-5

Team: Panionios

League: Greek League / Eurocup

Tasos Antonakis

Age: 20

Position: PF

Height: 6-9

Team: Ilysiakos

League: Greek League

Dimitrios Agravanis

Age: 17

Position: PF

Height: 6-10

Team: Panionios

League: Greek League / Eurocup

I named the 10 Greek players that I think are most likely to get drafted in the 2013 NBA draft (I did not put it in any particular order).

Out of these 10 players, 6 of them are currently in place to be rotation players in their Greek League clubs. Those players are: Vassilis Kavvadas, Linos Chrysikopoulos, Manolis Koukoulas, Andreas Kanonidis, Giannoulis Larentzkis, and Tasos Antonakis.

So they are probably more likely yo be drafted than the others. Koukoulas (team disbanded) and Chrysikopoulos (injury) basically did not play last year, so this year is very important for them.

Kavvadas is set to be a rotation player in Panionios, which is a Eurocup club, so maybe some NBA scouts will actually see him play - since they obviously never scout in Greece, due to NBA biases and prejudices against Greek players.

Chrysikopoulos is set to be a rotation player in the Italian League, which NBA scouts actually look at. So, that means that Kavvadas and Chrysikopoulos probably have the best chance to be drafted.

Hey I have been on this forum

Hey I have been on this forum for only a short while so I don't really know what European Baller has done, but recently I saw that he posted a lot of stuff that got him atleast 20 thumbs down. The content is in my oppinion pretty inaccurate but I feel that there is a personal reason you guys don't like him. What did he do?

Reasons 1.He is a Greek

Reasons

1.He is a Greek supremacist

2.He hyped up sofoklis schortsanitis and said what was just a summer league invite was really a 3 year contract

3.Any Greek prospect/player not placed on any kind of list or mock draft was left off due to racism

4.He claims 300 was based on his life story

5.He refuses to listens to others opinions

6.His name makes no sense the only part of Europe he cares about is Greece

Oh... well, I think that he

Oh... well, I think that he needs to stop it because as a greek supremacist, his country really messed the European Union up. The Euro is going to hell because of the lies that his government said about the country's economic status in order to be a part of the union. The Portugal and Spain problems are a collateral product of the greek mistake. It's not his fault, but I would reconsider my "european" baller username if my nationality was greek, they were undeserving to be recognized as part of the european union. I am from Belgium and over here, we're feeling the effects of the financial crisis. I don't feel bitter towards the greek people but their country seriously &$#%#&@! us over as well as our neighbours big time.

Greek players are okay players but should stick to euro ball, the nba is a whole other statosphere. Only the recognized prodigies should be given a shot at the draft. There are a lot more countries in the world that produce basketball talent worthy of an nba draft player. Not just greece.

I honestly think the only way to explain him is this.......

NBADraft rates players from 1-10 on the following areas,

Athleticism

Size

Defense

Strength

Quickness

Leader Ship

Jump shot

Nba ready

Rebounding

Potential

Post skill

Intangibles

European Baller has an extra category

Being Greek

As such he rates every Greek Baller 10 points higher than everyone else..... On top of that if a guy is strong heand from Greece he gets 5 bonus points for being "a. Beast!!!!!"

Alexis Spanos

Age: 21

Position: SG

Height: 6-6

Team: Ilysiakos

League: Greek League

This is another one to watch. He was great in the first Greek League game of the season against Kavala. VERY GOOD chance to get drafted I think if he keeps this up.

Andreas Kanonidis is playing

Andreas Kanonidis is playing great so far in the Greek League with Peristeri. He definitely desevres to be drafted, if he continues to play this well at that level.
