Kostas Papanikolaou - EuroBasket 2013 Profile

Team 2012-13: Olympiacos Piraeus (Greece-ESAKE)
Career: Aris Thessaloniki (Greece-ESAKE, 2007-09); Olympiacos Piraeus (Greece-ESAKE, 2009-13)

There will be more eyes fixed on Kostas Papanikolaou than on any other player on the Greek team in Slovenia and the young forward could very well give them something to marvel at. With enormous experience in big games disproportionate to his age and the natural talent to match, Papanikolaou will be among the most motivated players to turn EuroBasket 2013 into a personal milestone. He has already conquered - among others - two Turkish Airlines Euroleague titles and the Rising Star award in the same competition but still has two major challenges ahead: to replicate with the senior national team the enormous success he has tasted as the leader of the golden generation of Greece's U20 side and, after the EuroBasket, to establish himself as the next big star of his club team FC Barcelona Regal and help the Spanish giants match the recent triumphs of his former team, Olympiacos.
