Panathinaikos guard AJ Slaughter talked about the Basket League playoffs and the axing of Dusko Ivanovic.
"We now know that we will finish second in regular season", he wrote on his blog. "That means that we must focus on getting ready for the playoffs. The playoffs determine everything. We will be working with a new coach. We are not interested in the club's decision. We must sacrifice ourselves for the team, no matter who the coach is. The team is above everyone".
