The Post reported over the weekend that the Greek God committed 7 fouls in one game (which I guess you can do in summer ball?). Anyway, that’s one of the most absurd things I’ve ever heard. At what point do you say to yourself, “Hey lemme take it easy this play and not foul this guy.” Dude has 11 fouls in 29 minutes of playing time. That screams “Fourth grader with no regard for the rules constantly hand-checking his man on defense.” Get it together Thanasis. Jeez.
Phil says that they plan on stashing him in Europe for the year so he can develop more (and hopefully learn the rules of basketball). Apparently they love his tenacity and think he’ll be a good fit in the triangle offense. Let’s take care of this fouling problem first.
