Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
PAO is Greek powerhouse Panathanaikos, which, as you can see from the photo, shares the shamrock logo and green & white uniform colors. So it's good to see KG keeping some sort of symmetry in his overseas requests.
Then again, I guess it depends on what that tweet actually means. Did the agent call and say "please take KG" and they said "no freakin' way"…. or did they actually have talks that ultimately went nowhere?
Regardless, this is the first I've heard of KG actually pursuing overseas interests. Panathanaikos is perennially in the championship mix in Greece, so they don't necessarily need to make big splashes like this. The European defectors have largely gone to more middle-of-the-road teams looking to cash in on the excitement of an NBA'er playing for them.
And besides, I don't want KG playing anywhere. The last thing I need to see in the middle of all this crap is a report about KG hurting his knee while playing for the wrong shamrock. We're all better off for this not actually coming to fruition.
