GBL 2018/2019

If we look in the past seasons of the Greek basketball league its all about Panathinaikos and Olympiacos and years to come it's going to be the same.
Fanbase, team power, financial status, the coaching staff, everything about this two teams is at a very high level. These two teams are so strong and they usually don’t have any real opponent in the league besides each other.

Last year was no different than others, Panathinaikos won the 36th league title their history, as they beat the big rivals Olympiakos 84:70 in the final series of the playoffs. PAO won the fifth game of the final series. The most effective in Panathinaikos' victory was Mike James with 18 points. Exactly Mike James left PAO because the team doesn't have enough money for him and Calathes. Panathinaikos offered a new, three-year contract to Calathes, worth 6.5 million euros.
Also, Lithuanian playmaker Lukas Lekavicius and the Greek center Ian Vougioukas will play in Panathinaikos and the next season, as they have extended the contract with the champion of Greece and recently Stéphane Lasme returned to the club.
PAO is negotiating with Pappas for contract renewal but If Panathinaikos signs a new contract with Pappas then this might greatly affect any potential deal with Finnish guard Petteri Koponen.
During last season there was a fight between PAO chairman and Turkish Airlines Euroleague president Bartomeu.
Allegedly PAO has decided to leave Euroleague, but they will continue to play in this seasons Euroleague.

When it comes to Olympiacos, they started rebuilding their team after hard defeat in last season finals. US Israeli-born David Blatt signed a two-year deal with Olympiakos. It was speculated that Blat would be able to replace Dimitris Itudis in CSKA, although those speculations were silenced after the "Armenians" won the VTB league. Blat has already worked in Greece for a rich coaching career when he led the Thessaloniki Aris. Legendary Vasilis Spanulis has extended the contract with Oly until the end of the 2018/19 season.
The thirty-five-year-old playmaker came to Olympiacos in 2010 from Panathinaikos.
Nigel Williams - Goss is Olympiacos's first transcript in the light of the new season, also Oly signed Zach Leday. The American forward/center has agreed to a three-year contract with our team. The club also announced contract renewal with Kostas Papanikolaou, the 28-year international forward, for the next three season.
It’s obvious that Oly wants desperately to return the trophy to their grounds.

Other teams are also working and trying to make their way to this season’s playoffs and maybe league cup trophy.
Luka Banky is the new coach of AEK and the first Italian coach in the history. The AEK administration has announced the agreement with the 53-year-old coach, who has won two Italian Championships in his career. In meantime, PAOK announced Dimitris Katsimvelis as a new player. The 27-year-old guard is a member of the National Team in the first round of the 2019 World Cup qualifiers, and last season he played for Astana. While Jamal Jones is PAOK's first transfer of the new season. The 25-year-old American Guard Guard played last season in Italian A2 with the colors of Verona.

It's going to be a fun season to watch, but the only question that is unknown will Oly win or PAO, other teams will need to find their opportunity in league Cup competition.
