"It was an easy decision ", the 23-year-old center said. "It was an easy decision because I like to win. Everything. I believe that with Spanoulis we can win everything. He is an unbelievable player. When I played against him I was really impressed. And I thought that we could do great things together. I really wanted to play with him".
Young will meet in Greece another former Florida Gators player, Nick Calathes, who joined Panathinaikos a few days ago. "It is funny because the day I called him to talk about Olympiacos, he said that he moved Panathinaikos and that we would be opponents. I laughed, it was a pleasant surprise. I told him 'Nick, what you said is perfect, but you need to know that I will beat you'. We didn't play together at Florida, but I know him, he is a great guy".
