Greek forward Kostas Papanikolaou feels privileged to serve as the captain of Olympiacos, continuing the legacy of two club icons, Vassilis Spanoulis and Georgios Printezis.

“The honor of being the captain of Olympiacos, the biggest club in Greece and one of the biggest in Europe, says a lot. There are no words,” said Papanikolaou to Eurohoops during Olympiacos‘ EuroLeague media day.

“I am lucky to have coincided with these two guys, Vassilis and Georgios. We experienced many moments together, and I am lucky not only for these but mainly because I can call them friends. Because a relationship was created that counts more than anything competitive.”
