Olympiacos head coach David Blatt spoke with the official website of the EuroLeague and referred to his relationship with the media.

Here is what the experienced coach told the EuroLeague’s coaches corner concerning his relationship with journalists:

“I never looked at it as pressure. I think there are different kinds of journalists and different kinds of journalism. You have to recognize that, but for me, pressure has never been external. I have always put more pressure on myself than I allowed to have or to feel from external sources such as the media.

People have the right to say and write whatever they want to. You just hope that it comes with the sense of credibility and respect and professionalism and you recognize that sometimes it doesn’t and that is just how it is. It is unfortunate, but that is a reality. I go with that – I have been in the business too many years to allow that to influence me.”
