"We have a new member in our team and I am talking about Gani Lawall", he wrote on his blog. "I am saying “welcome” to Gani, I am sure that he will help us and we will make everything- as his teammates- to feel comfortable in Panathinaikos from his first moments".
He also said a few words about his injury: "It was a strange period- even it was short- for me. I want to thank my teammates because they supported our team well despite all the problems with injuries.I am talking about the game against Galatasary for the Euroleague… And I have to share something: You can’t imagine how difficult is for an athlete to stay on the bench and just watching the game. It is hard to realize that you can’t help your teammates and your team. But I am grateful to these guys because we won a crucial game at our home after an excellent performance. Last week we didn’t have a game for the Greek League, so it was easier for me to recover and get ready for our next challenges!".
