"Nikos will always be a great chapter in the history of greek basketball... An original representative of this sport's meaning in its real, rare beauty. He is a great player, an excellent guy and an amazing teammate. A real leader and an original winner. During his whole career, which continues successfully, he was a living example for all the young kids in Greece who want to become basketball players.
For me, he will always be famous and well-respected for his contribution to greek basketball and Greece National Team", said the 57-year-old Israeli-American coach at SDNA, who worked with the 33-year-old guard of Brose Baskets Bamberg at Benetton Treviso from 2005 until 2007.
