5: The Crossover: Kostas Papanikolaou

This week, Joe Arlauckas is joined on The Crossover by Olympiacos’ Kostas Papanikolaou. Long identified as a big talent, Kostas has developed into one of the most consistent players in the EuroLeague. But as Joe finds out, it took a while for him to even find basketball. From there, the pair look at Papanikolaou's first stint with Olympiacos, reflecting on a career defining performance in one of EuroLeague’s greatest ever finals. Kostas explains his surprise move to Barcelona, then his years in the NBA. Then, it’s his return to the Olympiacos, and where he thinks they’re headed. Plus Kostas shares why his work with One Team is so important to him. Finally Joe gets to know Kostas a little better in a round of ‘One-on-One’, before setting him ‘The Crossover Test’
