Greek Basketball League starts with poor television coverage

Greek Basketball League season 2013-2014 starts with poor television coverage. The league may have two of the biggest and more commercial teams of Europe, Panathinaikos and Olympiacos, but has serious problems that remain unsolved for decades. Panathinaikos made a marketing travel and opening to China but the Chinese won't be able to watch most of away Panathinaikos' game for the League. Olympiacos won two consecutive Euroleague finals and the Intercontinental Cup but won't have frequent television coverage in his away games. From seven games of the first day, only three will have television coverage. Players like Patrick Ewing Jr, DJ Cooper and DJ Stephens who have their own friends and fans in the other side of the ocean won't have the chance of a television coverage. Worst thing is that almost nobody cares nor talks about such problems.
