Olympiacos now beat Panathinaikos out of habit



On the eve of April Fool’s Day, Olympiacos scored their 13th consecutive win over Panathinaikos and Vassilis Skoundis comments on the power of habit and the prevailing customary law in the derbies of the centuries.

This morning, after a traditional (journalistic) April Fool’s joke, Sportish published the news that Sarounas Jasikevicsous has been convinced by Anna Vissi and, as he says, will buy a nightclub.

My eye fell on the subject and to say my sin I believed it, after all Sarah’s love for bouzoukis, late nights and good times is well known and well sung (literally)!

Now – to be honest – it would sound more like an April Fool’s joke that happened just before the clocks left Friday and switched to Saturday.

The Real Nasty Emma!

I’m writing this because the fact that Olympiacos have suffered 13 consecutive defeats against Panathinaikos looks like a lie!

And indeed, with a blatant lie, I would have written the same if the thirteen offenders had the greens, because damn such long streaks are so unimaginable as to become unbelievable.

So as long as the Piraeus didn’t even stumble upon that reluctant number (the 13 de) and shoulder it, then their shoulder!

The Reds 13-0 and the green 27

This undoubtedly impressive and above all unprecedented and timed streak began after Panathinaikos’ last win by Nemanja Nedovic on November 22, 2021 in Neo Faliro and now extends to 13 victories achieved by Olympiacos in 16.5 months across the board from events:

Three in the regular season of the BasketLeague, three in the final series of playoffs, four in the Euroleague, one in the semifinals and one in the finals of the cup and one in the finals of the SuperCup.

Incidentally, the Greens are flying their own unique streak of 27 consecutive seasons in which they have won at least one title, but this year they are in serious danger of coming to an end…

So far, Panathinaikos has been derailed from three titles (SuperCup, Cup, EuroLeague) and is doomed to play all against all in the BasketLeague playoffs before Christos Serelis announced his team will be much more competitive.

The cash seller and public engagement

And while the Lavriotis coach continued to hold back and publicly make a significant promise, his counterpart is actually the cash seller in this story…

Bartzokas would never fall into an arrogant attitude, nor would Olympiacos think of saying the next time he faces Panathinaikos: “Welcome boys, welcome 13-0»!

At the end of the day, the Olympiakos coach is at this point putting aside the series against Panathinaikos and the distant Greek Championship playoffs and rightly maintaining a… pro-European stance.

After all, this is the biggest effort and challenge for the red organization, with the aim of qualifying for the Final 4 and what may come of it…

common law, custom and the acquired speed

I also wrote last Sunday after the league game that Olympiacos imposed their own customary right in this modern game with Panathinaikos and this was also amply proved yesterday…

The term “customary law” refers to the unwritten laws, all those rules that apply and are applied without being written down anywhere and imposed by the organized state.

This is exactly what happens in this case with the (13) winning streak, which, in addition to his racing background, is also extended by the power of habit in combination with the speed he has acquired.

Now Olympiacos throws Panathinaikos onto the canvas in a familiar and addictive way, but for this the necessary competitive conditions have been secured and met.

The know-how of Olympiacos

Even when the milk is squeezed and the Greens rise to the point of playing the whole game in a row, the Reds are so familiar with Derby terms that they leave no room to challenge their entrenched dominance.

Beyond quality, class and all sorts of concomitants (competitive and spiritual), Olympiacos is on its side and systematically invests in the know-how acquired over time.

Both at an individual and group level, the people of Piraeus have this know-how, which was not acquired through the training of the Holy Spirit, nor … bought at the nearest kiosk, but the result and at the same time the reward of is a systematic one Process.

The “Trust The Proceedings‘ that the Sixers have been stunning us with love for a decade!

With Olympiacos having a solid core and playing philosophy, it can effortlessly move to the “BoneThere, CompletedThe» the player and his coach: That means all or most of the participants were there and did it!

Sometimes with the spear, sometimes with the shield

In the current phase and until the opponent proves itself Olympiacos is invulnerable in the fights with Panathinaikos and prevails either with his offensive spear or with his defensive shield.

At the same time, the Greens are wriggling in the swamp of their deeds and omissions (and) this season, they are still looking for the compass on their course and, although they have given a more relaxed and certainly improved picture since the Sereli days, they can end the winning streak from Olympiakos still do not slow down.

What is their difference grossomodo?

In the fact that while Olympiacos built a very good team from the start, Panathinaikos – even when April has arrived – is still in the team building phase!

We haven’t gotten any smarter!

With these and with those that have been known and highlighted for a long time, Olympiakos reached the 13th place yesterdayThe his consecutive win in the Derby of Times that – to put it bluntly – made us no wiser!

What I mean;

But of course the fact that even when Bartzokas sees that some things are not going according to plan, he needed and wanted (like the recession of Panathinaikos-influenced tactics, Sloukas and the lack of three-pointers for four games, see 19 /87), he knows he’s got his kavatzes!

Someone or a few people will turn their noses up from either the first table on the dance floor or from the gallery and they’ll do the job for them nice and impasto, well, thanks.

Walkups Penance and Apostle Black

Yesterday, along with the usual suspects Sasha Vezenkov, it was Thomas Walkup and Tarik Black who have already left quite a few notes in their red book…

In particular, the US Navy is careful to permanently express remorse and ask his team for forgiveness (sic) for the damage he caused them on January 22, 2021 in Kaunas, where he stole the ball from Sluka and hit the winning basket, Zalgiris .

The Apostle

Black, on the other hand, is of another anecdote as he has the gift of bagasse for showing up where least expected, he displays the gift of an instant goalscorer, cleans up the dirty laundry in dt time and becomes the right man at the right time in the right place.

I can no longer describe Vezenkov!

In his case, science raises its hand…

Isaiah Kanan was adorable in The Bald Brothers. Now also see in the VIDEO what he caused by saying that he has not eaten souvlaki, how he answered the question about staying at Olympiakos and why he has no problem not being called by his name .

You heard it, you read it. Time to see some excerpts from Isaiah Kanan’s interview with Sportish and the Bald Brothers. The American guard was in the 24MEDIA studios for 73 minutes, he talked about his whole life and showed all his faces.

He was happy talking about the Greek souvlaki (or gyros, if that’s what some people want), sad remembering the Final Four in Kaunas, happy talking about Olympiakos, Bartzokas and the question spoke of his stay, emotionally, as he rolled back the year to the days of Hurricane Katrina and his serious injury in an NBA game.

But watch three VIDEO features from the lengthy interview:

In the first he talks about his stay and next season at Olympiakos

In the second for the Greek souvlaki

Check out this Instagram post.

Story with meaning by Printezis about Milutinov




Giorgos Printezis uploaded a five-year-old post to Instagram in which he tells a meaningful story in the company of Miloutinov, Papanikolaou and Vezenkov.

Nikola Milutinov has been in Greece for the past few days. He met with Veschenkov. He is known to be Olympiacos’ first target. All of this gave Giorgos Printezis the opportunity to upload an older story of his to Instagram that is full of meaning.

Notably, the former Olympiakos captain has uploaded the post he posted in 2018 when Milutinov left the ‘Red-Whites’. He then uploaded a photo of the two performing together with Kostas Papanikolaou and Sasha Vezenkov with the message “you can find everything but not that. Good luck brother!!!”. He has now done that, except he added an emoji in the bottom right showing someone thinking.

Giorgos Printezis' contribution with Miloutinov, Vezenkov and Papanikolaou, with the emoji on the bottom right of the photo

It’s been five years since this post, and Printezis found it in his memories and re-uploaded it, a step that makes sense to create associations.
