Spanish Basketball Federation Trying To Get Greek Adetokunbo Brothers To Switch To Spanish Nationality To Play For Spain
The Spanish Basketball Federation wants the Greek Adetokunbo brothers to change their nationality to Spanish. The offer is for them to be able to play in Spanish clubs with good contracts and also to be moved into the Spanish national team as players.
Reportedly, Spain not only wants them on the Spanish national team, but they also want to block them from being able to play for Greece. So by having them switch their nationality, and then playing them in the national team, it would take them away from their main European rival.
Apparently both brothers have been offered a lot of money to do this.
WTF is wrong with Spanish federation? SERIOUSLY? WTF? Their crap is getting ridiculous.
The Adetokunbo's should take this offer, they might be able to one day play in the NBA if they're Spanish
I bet you can guess which two prospects just shot up to the top two spots of my future mock draft.
Your on a roll today Euro Baller. Lmao Hahaha !!
WTF is going today? Is this actually a EuroBaller post I can "+"?
EuroBaller took some time off to prepare this shock and awe tactic. Anything to help the Greek economy right? These boys need jobs!
I figured it out.
David Stern realised that these brothers will be NBA stars so he paid the Spanish Federation to make them change their nationality because if they're Spanish he can get over his hate for Greeks and allow them to be high lotto picks.
Oh my god it all makes so much sense now.
EB: can't you just accept the fact that we have a Greek starting for the 6th best team in the West? We have another two guys (Printezis and Papanikolaou) who have been drafted and whose rights are owned by NBA teams? And we have a greek (Ioannis Papapetrou) getting some minutes while playing for Texas University?
Seriously, where the hell do you come up with your theories?
All the stupid things you are posting are making me be ashamed to say I'm from Greece...
So people here defend this kind of thing by Spanish basketball federation or no?
Yeah, because hopefully the spanish federation will read this forum and realize they're doing wrong lol
and what's difrece there betwen Spanish and Greek federation? Jankovic, Sakota or that Georgian guy Jake Tsakalidis"....The fact that Greek federation change names in Greek ones, does not make Tsakalisid more Greek then Ibaka Spanish
ypu are being hypocrite here
I do not support this from any federation, including Croatian. It was disgrace for our basketball, but don't be hyocrite and atack other for same sin you make
WTF are you talking about? Those players were raised in Greece and in the case of Tsakalidis he was a refugee.
GTFO with your bullshit.
You really have proven here that you are complete scumbag.
haaa remember iakov tsalakov...
So a player raised in Greece, after he was a political refugee as a child can't be considered for Greek citizenship? OK, whatever.
You people are scumbags to even dare compare that to Spain trying to pay the Adetokunbo brothers to change their nationality.
Jankovic and Sakota have lived in Greece since they were little kids. They live their as their permanent residence. They don't even live In Serbia and have not since they were little kids.
And you are complaining about them? They obviously have the right to be considered Greek citizens if they want to. Especially since their parents also had Greek citizenship.
Only a complete nutcase would say that is like Spain buying the Adetokunbo brothers to play for them.
Oh great!!! spanish hate greek too
