Greece Basketball Team for FIBA World Cup 2019 -The Greece Team (GRE) vs Montenegro (MON) Live Basketball match is held on Sunday 1 september 2019 at 20:30 Pm. FIBA Basketball is the largest tournament in the world in which basketball teams from many nations will participate to win the basketball world title and now in this season’s 2019 FIBA world cup, a total of 32 teams will play in the host nation of the event China.
In 2006 the FIBA Basketball world Championship Greece has played well and stood 2nd place.
Greece last participated in the FIBA Basketball world cup 2010 and acquired 3 wins, 3 defeats and 11th place. Greece is also considered as one of the toughest team and has its ranking No.8 among all the teams in the world.
As we all know that Greece needed a wild card to reach the 32-team FIBA Basketball world cup but it is not underestimated by China. Without the protagonists of that team and with a different coach, the Greeks still have strong link to 2006 in Nikos Zisis. As we know that Coach Fotis Katsikaris was replaced by Andrea Trinchieri after his one year and now Greece team is good enough to prove themselves as a one of the best team in Basketball World Cup.
The Team is replaced by youngsters Kostas Papanikolaou, Evangelos Mantzaris, Kostas Sloukas and Nick Calathes, these players have vital games with the national team under the belt and will combine with more senior players as Giannis Bourousis, Zisis, Georgios Printezis and Kostas Kaimakoglou. These all are ready to make Greece one of the top sides in a Group B. Papanikolaou, Mantzaris and Sloukas has made Shining team for Title winning Greek Teams at youth level and celebrated back-to-back Turkish Airlines Euroleague triumphs (2012 and 2013) with Olympiacos, and Calathes, after scooping the honor as the Eurocup’s top player (2013) with Unics Kazan, has launched his NBA career with the Memphis Grizzlies.
Since reaching the podium at EuroBasket 2009 in Poland, Greece have come up short of the medals.
