After Olympiacos-Trikala game, the day after his club released Von Wafer Giannakis was asked for the reasons the player left Greece and headed back to NBA.

According to Giannakis the American guard was simply not up for it anymore: “Von Wafer had a totally different philosophy than ours and could not adapt to the philosophy of the team. If someone is not up for it even to try, then he better stop doing it alltogether. It makes the rest of the guys (players) nervous.” Giannakis said and wished Von Wafer good luck: “In any case we wish him all the best”
