In his recent interview with Open Sport, coach Rick Pitino said no matter what has been reported he will still coach the Greek National team. He also admitted that this season he didn’t want to coach Panathinaikos.
“All I wanted to do is coach the National team which I’m still going to do. I am going to coach the Greek National team. The second year I did not want to coach Panathinaikos. It wasn’t my type of team the second year.”
Pitino also referred to Michael Jordan and the comparison between MJ and LeBron James:
”MJ to me is the number one; LeBron is 1A.”
