Panathinaikos guard Nikos Pappas is optimistiv about this season.
"I am in the final stage of my treatment. I wanted to play but that's basketball. I will play in the next ones. We are mentally ready. We will cope with the difficulties and we can prove parts of our worth. As a new team, we needed time to that we didn't have. Other things play their role too. We want to play with full stands. Peace and Friendship Stadium is a hostile home. Gist is an important player for us. A fantastic guy and I am happy he is back" said Pappas.
