The first call of the Cyprus NT and some vital questions - May 3, 2013

Iakovos
Panteli

The Cyprus Basketball federation has announced the 19 names of the players which have been called for the Cyprus NT for the participation to the Small nation's tournament. These names are the following:
Roberto Mantovani of AEL
Marios Georgiou of AEL
Christos Loizidis of AEL
Giorgos Palalas of AEL
Iakovos Panteli (187-G-85) of AEK
Jo Jo Garcia of AEK
Simon Michael of Asteras Mesa Geitonias
Giorgos Theocharidis of Keravnos Strovolou
Panagiotis Trisokkas of Keravnos Strovolou
Andreas Pilavas of Keravnos Strovolou
Stefanos Iliadis of Apollon
Grigoris Pantouris of Apollon
Riginos Kassinopoulos of Etha Engomis
Dimitris Aritotelous of Etha
Anthony King of Dragons
Christopger Razis of ENAD
Vasilis Kounas of MIA
Chrsitodoulos Kaskiris of ENAD
Nikolaos Stylianou of AS Kavala

Now the question is the following, the Cyprus NT at this stage after the sudden resignation of Coach Konstantinidis, are now managed by Coaches Panagiotis Yiannaras and Nikos Lamprias, have decided to call the above mentioned players, but the question is under which logic and which criteria, the specific call took place?


One may also wonder how comes and the federation called the specific players, especially the ones that had zero to none participation for a whole year (not to mention also the previous years which was more or less the same) these players had the minimum time with their teams and nobody is blaming them on the contrary, they have been called and they are offering their services....But unfortunatalte there are at least seven players in the specific list of the 19 (a percentage close to 40%) that had some minmum roles in their team, and iam just sharing this list with the following facts and figures of this season (for obvious reasons we are not giving the names of these players):

Player A played only 11 minutes this season and scored 7 points
Player B participated in19 games and a total of 166 minutes and scored 20 points
Player C participated in 20 games and a total of 223 minutes and scored 40 points
Player D played in 21 games and had 357 minutes and scored 48 points
Player E participated in 11 games with a total of 43 minutes and scored 4 points
Player F participated in only 9 games and had only 34 minutes in the court and scored 11 points
Player G played in just a single game with 10 minutes and scored 3 points


Are these players the best feasible solution for the Cyprus NT? One might wonder? Furthermore, the same person may wonder whether in the specific NT do they may have roles some other players that had a full season in their teams, no matter the division, the country, the level or then league? And if that's the case where are the following players?
Andreas Sizopoulos of Rethymno a team of the A1 Greek league with a decent participation in one of the best leagues in Europe
Viktoras Ieronymidis of Oak Hill with a full season in one of the best preparatory schools for the NCAA
Rafael Eleftheriou of Mantoulidis with a full season in the Greek C' Division and in the U21 competition
Andreas Christodoulou of Mantoulidis with a full season in the Greek C' Division and in the U21 competition
Petros Stylianou of MENT with a with a full season in the Greek C' Division and among the starters in his team
Dimitris Delichristos of APOP in the Cyprus second Division but among the stand outs of the competition
Panayiotis Koutsoloukas of Hunter College with a decent season in his college in the NCAA 3
Giannis Ioannides of Olympos Agiou Nikolaou with a solid season in the second division of the Cyprus league and full games in the division
And a number of other players that have a full season with many games in their teams like iezekil Papadopoulos of Paralimni, Seisou of Olympos Aglantzias, Tompazos of Olympos Agiou Nikolaou, Pantziaros of Achilleas Kaimakli and many others..

What is the point of taking players representing the Cyprus NT in international tournaments, that have no real time in the court simply due to the fact that their teams (in the Cyprus league) declare them in their roster since they need to have some local players in their rosters??

This is just a question - food for thought for any person that would like to take things seriously.....
