Grant: “Nan is a great scorer – We believed it and we really wanted the double in the SEF!”


The American guard of Panathinaikos, Jerian Grant, spoke to Cosmote TV about the loss of SEF and the transfer of Kendrick Nunn.

We are all here, we are all Stoiximan

In detail what the “Exasteros” player said about:

On what Panathinaikos did in SEF and reached the “double”: “We stopped the ball, we didn’t let them move it around. We let them play in the half court and not rush. Dinos came forward, made a big play and forced Olympiakos to change the way they play. We managed to limit our mistakes.”

For the two previous defeats by Olympiakos in the season: “It was extra motivation for us that we had lost the first two matches. We had to win. We knew it. We really wanted it. We had worked a lot in this match. We had studied them very well. It hurt us to lose at home, in overtime in the Euroleague. It was a bad experience for us. We had it in our hands and due to our mistakes we didn’t succeed”.

On his own role in the “greens”: “Until now I am the player who does what the team needs. I mark the opponent’s best player. To control the attack. To help my teammates. To find them. To run the right systems. But we are a new team and all this can change depending on the opponent. Everyone’s role changes. But as long as the team wins and improves everything will be fine.”

On the acquisition of Kendrick Nunn: “I know him well. I have heard a lot about him and I have seen him. He is a great scorer. You always need such points. It will help us a lot. Once he joins the team and finds his role, it is certain that he will make our team better.”
