"Everything ended well for Olympiakos on Monday, in spite of our many problems, I feel kind of empty now, but also proud and and relieved. After all those years, these titles are very flattering but I try to remain concentrated, with the help of my family as always. Against Panathinaikos I was feeling in excellent condition, I had trained well before and I was ready, mentally and physically, for the series.
It was a dreamy end of season for us, I wish to live it again in the future. Many important players do not leave their clubs the way they wanted, there are many examples of that from the past. I really love basketball and I am trying to be improved all the time, my ambition and morale remain high, there are still things to work on and become better ahead of next season.
When I realized that it was over, I went to Panathinaikos' locker rooms in order to speak with Dimitris Diamantidis. The greek basketball will be certainly more poor after his retirement, he has one of the best players ever and inspired many kids to start training. I wish him all the best from now on, Greece is blessed and should be proud for Diamantidis's presence after all those incredible accomplishments of him.
The first summer I spent some time with him was at National Team's squad of 2004, all the teammates were a real family back then and we came closer. Dimitris has a great personality, with respect for the people and basketball, I do not want to speak about myself. It's time to enjoy what we have and stop arguing about who is the best, we will understand that when all the important players retire and we will miss them.
I can not describe with words the moments after out two away victories at the Olympic Stadium of Athens, running with my teammates in the locker rooms, starting to understand that we had won. I hope the civilized and wealthy icons after Monday's clash to change the thoughts of some people, we should all realize that it is just a game, two huge teams with many titles and a solid name in Europe, let's just enjoy it", said the 34-year-old guard.
