Papapetrou: “It is an incredible success to win the championship after the European one”

Ioannis Papapetrou emphasized that the Panathinaikos players never gave up against Olympiakos and showed that they are the best team in Europe in all the finals, he thinks they showed character, he mentioned the Euroleague victory in Berlin, he described the season as great and made it clear that still he does not know if he will go down to the pre-Olympic with the National team.

Analytically: “It’s a historic year, incredible success, first the European and then the championship the way it came. I think we didn’t give up, we kept fighting and fighting on the field, all the players. Even at 2-0 we tried to focus on basketball, do our job, fight and we really made a big turnaround. We believed that we can, we are a better team, the best team in Europe. This would be seen inside the stadium.

The team in all matches with “backs against the wall” showed character. It has players and a coach with character, personalities and she should have spoken. We proved it in all the games. We talked a lot, mainly with Sluka. We were saying that it would be a success to reach a Final Four after last year’s difficult year with a new rebuild and a new effort. We knew that even reaching the Final Four would be very difficult. Believe me we would win the EuroLeague and the championship in this way, it exceeded all dreams and expectations. It was a very long season.

For the National Team, it is something I will answer in the next few days. More or less, I knew what I wanted to do. I will announce it in the next few days. I will first talk to Vassilis Spanoulis and the people of Ethniki, whom I respect.”
