The Panathinaikos head coach traveled for the first time to Lithuania on Thursday and shared his thoughts about the country and Zalgiris on his social media.

Not only did he note how basketball is perceived as a religion in the Baltic country, but also praised coach Sarunas Jasikevicius (former EuroLeague champion with the Greens as a player).
