"I have to tell you that I am glad because Nikos Pappas is back in action again", he wrote on his blog on esake.gr. "He is a great player and he is giving us a lot of help and energy. He was very unlucky till now and I wish that he will not have more problems this season. I know how difficult is for a player to sit and watch. Nikos is a young and full of talent guy who we missed a lot".
Pappas and Slaughter play at the same position, but... who cares? "Maybe you will think: “AJ is crazy… He is playing at the same position with Pappas and he will lose time of playing”. This is a wrong way to think. We are a team, a family. We must be ready to help our team and our teammates. I want all of us to be at 100% because in this way our team will win EVERYTHING".
