his interview to the channel of Barcelona:
For the game against Panathinaikos: "I have played many times as an opponent with Panathinaikos. Now we talk about a playing Euroleague level while I play for another club. Panathinaikos has a very good set. They are better than the previous years. I remember the final of the Greek Cup in 2014 and games between us for Cup. I have never won them! I think now I have a good chance! "
For the start of the season in Barcelona: "We are still at the beginning of the year. We are talking about our third match in Euroleague. My Team is 100% ready. We are still learning each other. Certainly this is a strong test, but not the most crucial. Dimitris Diamantidis is one of the best players in Europe! We have to stop him but Panathinaikos has many good players. "
Barcelona needs to focus to: "We should not just focus on one player but to the team. We should also look at our own team. I do not know if Diamantidis is the best point guard in the history of European basketball. He is a legend, like Juan Carlos Navarro. In the same category are Spanoulis, Diamantidis and many other players in the Euroleague but his kind cannot be compared with anyone else! "
For his presence in Barcelona so far: "I am very proud to be here in Barcelona but I did only the first step. I want to win a place in the team, to become an important member of the organization called Barcelona. "
