Is Panathinaikos trying with all its might to justify its failed performance in the national championship?

Greece is an incredibly atmospheric place to feel pain. This applies to both football and basketball. They support their teams very sincerely, just look at the final series that is currently being played in the Greek Basketball Championship. The title is played between Olympiacos and Panathinaikos. Both clubs also play in the Euroleague. And in the series against their current champion, Olympiacos leads with a score of 2-0. There were some scandals, as well as mentions of Panathinaikos coach Ergin Ataman, a three-time EuroLeague champion famous for his impulsive behavior.

The start of the final series in Greece:

In the first match, his team lost 84:89, and the Turkish specialist himself was expelled and then made strong statements against the judges. It should be noted that after the removal, Ergin walked through the center of the venue to demonstratively applaud each of the three referees who officiated the match. In addition, the coach did not forget to raise the question that non-Greek referees should work in important matches. The Panathinaikos coach himself stated that he understands why this practice has taken root in football.

In the second match, Pao also lost by a slight difference of 86:92. With 38 seconds left in regulation time, Olympiacos defender Isaiah Kanaan decided to provoke the MVP of the last EuroLeague final, Kostas Sloukas, demonstrating a monetary gesture that Minnesota center Rudy Gobert likes to resort to from time to time. when in the NBA. Ergin Ataman also intervened in the matter, entering into a confrontation with Kanaan, for which he received a technical foul. Ataman tried to protest this decision, the result was that Ergin was eliminated for the second match in a row.

The video can be seen on the Eurohoops TV YouTube channel.

Olympiacos coach Georgios Bartsokas reacted with restraint to the situation: “I don’t want to comment on this. This is what we all said before the final: try not to add fuel to the fire. My team and I are heading in the right direction. There was a clash between Kanaan and Sloukas, and Coach Ataman intervened. He walked out onto the platform again. This is his method, which we respect.”

It is true that the owner of Panathinaikos, Dimitris Giannakopoulos, after the meeting said on his social networks that the club would file an official complaint with the league about the controversial refereeing decisions. Giannakopoulos himself did not mince words: “In this country we must focus on action, not reaction. Let’s leave the antics behind and see clearly what happened on the field. There must be an investigation and the authorities must intervene.” Dimitris also mentioned rigged elections.

Olympiacos did not ignore this and through a press release made it clear that the club would file a complaint against Giannakopoulos’ comments: “The Olympiacos Basketball Club will file an official complaint against the owner of Panathinaikos for vile, disgusting and threatening statements against the Greek government. Basketball Federation and the referees of the second game of the final through their personal account on social networks. At the same time, we are waiting for an immediate reaction from the government and the main Greek sports figures.”

It’s very interesting how this story ends. It should be noted that, according to Greek sports legislation, such actions of Dimitris Giannakopoulos can be considered detrimental behavior in relation to sports. Following the results of the first match of the final series, both “Pao” and Ergin Ataman were fined for their actions. The specialist himself is obliged to pay €10,000. The final in Greece is played up to three victories. The next match will be played on June 10 and in it Olympiacos can become champions for the third consecutive time.
