"I came to the United States three years before and I needed some time to settle. I wanted to combine playing basketball with my studies and NYU gave me that chance. I work hard and follow my coach's instructions, the first one who helped me a lot was Kostas Papadopoulos at Panathinaikos Academy. My college studies end at May and I will try to play professionally either here, either at Europe. When I was young, I had Paul Pierce, Mike Batiste and Antonis Fotsis as role models, Giannis Antetokounmpo has great potential and I was proud for playing with him at national team", said the 21-year-old Greek forward at his SDNA interview.
