The 33-year-old guard mentioned about the new season's anxiety: "It's not that difficult. It'a a challenge and a motive at the same time. We give our 100% and with trainning we will try to do what we did last season. Olympiacos is a coache's team. We all know his philosophy. It suits our DNA and Olympiacos players temperament. We had manny absences in the friendlies. Those who remained did a great job. They tried a lot and I think that the team is built on a sound basis".
About the players that left the team: "The challenge is to achieve our targets. We never look who is the best and who is the worst or if someone will be substituted. Basketball is a team sport and onluy through team effort we will manage to replace the players that left. Everybody should help the team in their way".
About his international retirement: "I felt that way. It was in my mind as a thought and through the games it became definite".
If he wants to continue with Olympiacos: "Of course. I play here for 5 years. Everybody knows that I've played my best games here. Everybody knows the love and the respect on my face. I really feel nice and I hope everything will go alright when we aree to discuss my future".
About society condition: "All of my friends do not have the goods I have. We are blessed that we managed to do our hobby, a job. I can understand the situation very well and this makes us more human. I hope everything to get better than they are at the momment".
