A shrine of international basketball, OAKA in the Greek capital, was the scene of a new Official Media Day in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague on Wednesday as home team Panathinaikos OPAP Athens opened its doors to local and international journalists of every kind.
Some things are old but plenty are new with the Greens this season. Super legends Dimitris Diamantidis and Fragiskos Alvertis now have management roles with the club, while long-time assistant Georgios Vovoras has moved up to the head of the bench.
Well known newcomers like Nemanja Nedovic, Pierre Jackson, Aaron White and Howard Sant-Roos have arrived to play alongside signature holdovers like Ioannis Papapetrou, Konstantinos Mitoglou and Georgios Papagiannis.
All were on hand on Wednesday for a host of photo shoots, video interviews and other actiivities with the assembled media. Looking good in their uniforms and talking basketball for the fans can mean only one thing – that it won't be long before the Greens are rocking it for real on the court at OAKA!
