"Being a member of Greece National Team is a nice routine for me in the recent years. It is always nice dedicating your summer to the national squad, I am doing it with my heart. The positive thing this year is that we are all understanding the great future of that time, with excellent atmosphere in the locker rooms. All the lads are willing to help and I am sure that we could achieve something very good.
The absences of players such as Vasilis Spanoulis and Nikos Zisis will be very important and we are going to miss them everywhere, in the court and the locker rooms equally. They are legendary icons of Greek basketball, with unbelievable contribution and I want to help them for everything they have left behind for us.
Our target is to repeat the great accomplishments and the success of them in the future. I am ready to help the team in any role they want from me. I am already an important member of Olympiakos, so maybe the time has come to become a star of the National Team. I will certainly do exactly what our head coach is asking from me and I hope to help the squad reach this summer's goals.
It is clear that the strong parts of this squad are energy, athleticity and speed. So, the head coach will try to work in some plays adjusted to this style of basketball. We are running fast in the transition, with many quick attacks. With the exception of 2-3 athletes, such as myself, all the others have great speed and energy ability!
Playing in the Olympic Games is a total dream for any athlete. We have started from the young squads of National Team, moving step by step, but always the target of performing in the Olympic Games was in our minds. We have a very bad experience in the Olympic Qualifying Tournament of Venezuela at 2012, so I hope that we will do the exact opposite this summer and manage to make our highest dream come true", said the 26-year-old international at SDNA.
