another greek player whose playstyle is for nba is kostas papanikolaou.he s young athletic long and the thing i like about him is his attitude.he s always the last man standing doesn t quit and he has an edge i mean a f@ck off attitude to the opposite team and guy needs to develop moves and dribble.when the knicks drafted him last year i was really glad
finally i guy that posts here that know european basketball
