"I think they don't like me just when I am on court", the Spaniard said after the victory against Panathinaikos. "I don't know why that happens. Maybe because I am trying to play my game, maybe because I always want to win. There is no other explanation, at least not in my mind. Off court I have no problems and I can assure about that. Greeks love basketball and respect players with a great career. Therefore, I believe they dislike me just for 40 minutes".
Navarro praised his big opponent, Dimitris Diamantidis. "He is a great player. He is a star, not only in Greece but across Europe as well. He has great experience, like I do. We have played against eachother many times and our battles are very interesting. We have met everywhere! Every match against Panathinaikos is a nice story and all players, even the younger ones have huge motive".
