The Crossover: Stratos Perperoglou

Mar 18, 2020, 10:30 AM
Not many people have three EuroLeague titles and fewer have won the competition with both Panathinaikos and Olympiacos, so there is plenty for Stratos Perperoglou to talk about on The Crossover with Joe Arlauckas. The Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade small forward explains why his family fell out over his teenage move to the Greek capital, responds to being called “the ultimate team player” and remembers his excitement at joining Zeljko Obradovic’s intense Panathinaikos side. Perperoglou discusses his controversial switch to Olympiacos and his first Athens derbies with both clubs. He also chats about his potentially career-ending blood clot, his strong Christian faith and making the move out of Greece, before picking a patriotic All-Decade EuroLeague team.
