"Υοu can find positive and negative things. We played good basketball. Completeness does not secure success. Some unexpected teams advanced to the semi finals. We were unlucky. In the Mundobasket we played against Serbia that reached the final and now we faced Spain wh won the gold medal and proved to be one of the best national teams. Details decide success or failure. We were all disappointed" said Printezis.
About criticism: "I choose not to read anything or to be informed during the tournament. I always try to improve. Criticism helps the coaches and the players. In the national team, the player does not rest in order to serve what he loves. We are a team. For everything that happens, we are all to blame. The easy part is to say that it;s the coache's fault. I want to be realistc. When I lose Ι criticise myself".
For those that did not play much: "With Trinkieri I didn not play much time, despite th fact that I had a good season. Coach had informed us that in the crucial matches the rotation will be smaller. I will not judge if it;s right or not. But it's not something easy for the players and coaches to handle".
About Spanoulis, Bourousis and Zisis: "They have experienced national team differently. They learned with Giannakis values. The last days in the Eurobasket were emotional. We were all sad. When something that you have given your soul ends, it looks bad. Players should understand that the national team is abouve all. There are talented players that can join the national team".
For the road to Rio Olympic Games: "It's not going to be easy. We don;t know how the PreOlympic Groups will be. The group is going to be tough. Whether against France or Serbia. We don;t need to rush. We have to decide correctly. If Zisis and Bourousis decide to stop, we talk about avery different team".
