A former EuroLeague MVP and the Final Four MVP each of the three times he led his team to the continental crown – with Panathinaikos Athens in 2009 and with Olympiacos in 2012 and 2013 – Spanoulis has been a model for how hard work, dedication and passion can pave one’s way to success. 

Among the many interesting subjects that came up was Spanoulis’s 2010 move from Panathinaikos Athens to its archrival Olympiacos, a topic the guard rarely talks about.
