David Blatt, who now works for the New York Knicks as a consultant, revealed the reason he left Olympiacos early in the season.

“I left Olympiacos because of my health issues, that was the main reason. I felt that I had to do it. Basically, I had to take care of myself and see if I was getting better.

After that, I would decide whether to continue coaching or if I would do another job. I am currently battling with my health issues (PPMS – Primary-Progressive Multiple Sclerosis). It’s not always easy, but, overall, I’m fine,” Blatt said in an interview with Ribaund Basketbol.
