Vassilis Spanoulis RumorsAll NBA Players
Arroyo: We have the same example with me at the Miami Heat. I had LeBron, Wade and Boss to give the ball. Can Arroyo be the real Arroyo in a situation like that? No, he can’t. He has to be a distributor for all that players. This is a very very tough situation for guys who are used to be the elite players in their teams. Spanoulis wasn’t respected that much at Houston. But, you know Spanoulis wasn’t Spanoulis at Houston! This was the case.
Carlos Arroyo on the NBA: “It’s not only about me. You know when I was playing in the NBA I was always following Euroleague cause of my FIBA attachment and the National Team. So I knew who Spanoulis was. If I remember well It was like 2006. I was playing at Orlando. Spanoulis has landed at the Houston Rockets and he had a tough coach, Jeff Van Gundy. It was easy for me to see that this guy wasn’t his self on the court. He wasn’t happy man. I remember talking with him about this. That they tried to control your game.
It’s hard for me to think that a player like you couldn’t quite make it in the NBA… Vassilis Spanoulis: I found out that it wasn’t for me. It was not the right time or the right team. Things happen. There you start from scratch, it doesn’t matter what you have done in Europe and it’s tough.
Vasilis Spanoulis will not give an answer to any other offer from a European club before his meeting with Olympiacos’ owners Aggelopoulos brothers and this delay affects not only the plans of the Euroleague champions, but almost every other player in the European market because three more top clubs (CSKA Moscow, Barcelona, Galatasaray) are waiting for him and according to our latest infos at least one more team will trey to sign him. The only two teams that are not affected by the postponement of the crucial meeting are two NBA franchises that are still considering the case of signing the Euroleague MVP.
