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.
