The Greek Barcelona forward referred about Barcelona next Euroleague opponent (29/10, 22:00) saying: "I think Panathinaikos is very strong this year. They’ve made a good start and seem to have confidence in their power. The players are good and are playing in the right way both in defense and in attack. Panathinaikos has a great team; Diamantidis leads them in the court.”
For the new leader of the Panathinaikos Nick Calathes, he said: "Calathes is more mature now. He is one of the players that we need to stop."
Finally, for the game on Thursday he said: "It's the first big game of the Euroleague, against a very strong team. Maybe it's a team that does not look like the way the played in the past, but it is important to protect our home advantage. Our team is not playing the way we want yet, but it is early to draw conclusions."
