So, I didn't watch the game, but apparently to those who did, Greece did indeed tank. I kind of have to disagree with this author. I have no problem thinking strategically and losing a battle to help win the war. I go back to April 2006, Clippers-Grizzlies. The Clippers lost that game. They met Denver in the playoffs, had home court advantage, and won 4 games to 1. Memphis won, and was swept by Dallas. Don't blame the team that the organizers of the event put them in a situation where it is advantageous to lose.
