Olympiacos BC, following the events taking place during last night’s game between OLYMPIACOS and PANATHINAIKOS for the Greek Cup Final, is compelled to publicly congratulate all those who contribute to the evolvement and credibility of Greek Basketball and especially the Greek Basketball Federation and the Central Referee Committee.
We are certain that Panathinaikos’ coach instruction to his players to fake (!) in order to have an offensive foul drawn was done with purely sporting criteria. It also has nothing to do with a certain referee’s calls in the last quarter of the game, on whom we had drawn the Central Committee’s attention before the game, to no avail whatsoever.
The darkest night is just before dawn…!
