Hines and Dorsey close to the kids…

Kyle Hines and Joey Dorsey visited the Moraites School and talked with the fifth and sixth graders.

Following an initiative of the school’s English language department, the two Americans visited the young students on Monday and answered their questions.

Kyle Hines was the one to first give advice to the students: “Basketball is just like school, you have to work hard and always be disciplined”, he commented.
Joey Dorsey spoke about the differences between the NBA and European basketball: “Defense is different in Europe. I can be inside the post and help my team mates”.

The kids, just like good … reporters asked about the derby: “It was a great win. I had been hearing about this derby since the first day I came to Greece and about how the gym would be packed. I’m glad I experienced it and I understood what this game means”, Kyle Hines said and Joey Dorsey added: “My team mates were telling me that this is an important game and I gave my best. I really wanted for everyone to be happy with this victory and I’m happy I have helped as well”.

It was the end of the '30s when the Olympiacos Basketball team was founded with players form the "Ionidio" School. Great personalities of Greek basketball wore the 'red' shirt, coaches wrote history, victories came and Olympiacos played a leading role inside and outside the Greek borders.
