GRE - Big Sofo quits to rock Greece | FIBA.COM

15

It's another set back to my off-season basketball watching schedule. With a lockout canceling summer league and delaying free agency indefinitely, I could still look forward to EuroBasket starting at the end of August. As for Clippers tie ins to that tournament, Chris Kaman has committed to play for Germany, and of course long ago second round pick (and still Clipper property for what it's worth) Sofoklis Schortsanitis has been a fixture with the Greek team at major competitions. But now MBFGC has left the team for personal reasons. It's worth noting that Greek coach Elias Zouros seems none too pleased with Sofo's decision - "He told us that he wanted to stop with the national team for personal reasons, which he did, despite the efforts of the technical staff and the team to keep him here." Yeah, he's a pretty big dude. Turns out, your 'efforts to keep him' there were pretty much bound to be ineffective if he wanted to go. Sofo's always fun to watch - it's just one more disappointment in a disappointing basketball summer.
