"It was a good game and an important victory against an experienced Euroleague team, I am happy for my performance and the confidence of head coach. Shawn James' departure for Olympiakos has helped me, because I have more playing time now. Mirza Begic, his replacement, is a center of different style and not available for as many minutes as Shawn. James is an excellent player, but Olympiakos have to remain patient until he settles in his new environment.
I had an interesting match up against Giannis Bourousis, he is one of the best five centers in Europe, with great quality, and has nothing to prove to anyone. Head coach of Greece, Fotis Katsikaris, knows Spanish League well and I am always ready to help our National Team. The main target of Bilbao this season is to go far at Eurocup and finish in the top-8 positions of the league, they love and support Greeks here. Olympiakos for sure and also Panathinaikos, with the transfer of an athletic center, are condenders for Euroleague's final four, I hope to return to motherland for a Eurocup game against AEK, if they finally advance to Last 32, Aris or PAOK", said Bogris at his SDNA interview.
