And if you didn't click my link before, here's a very dramatic mix somebody made. YEAHHHH
In closing, here's Papanikolaou's official statement about being picked (translated from Greek):
"I watched the whole procedure through the internet. My situation being picked in draft opens up a new window of opportunity for my career if I decide to chase it and go after the opportunity. The New York Knicks are a team I like but for the time being I am under contract with Olympiakos and am totally focused on the games I have in front of me with the national team and our effort to qualify for the Olympic Games in London.’’
Chase that opportunity, Kostas! Chase it!
