Hilton Armstrong: "Panathinaikos is the biggest step of my career."

There isn’t any official announcement yet by Panathinaikos, but Hilton Armstrong is considering himself a player of the Greens, and he talked about his decision to journalist Marinos Printezis in the newspaper “Sportday”.

“I know really well what I signed up for. Panathinaikos is a great club, one of Europe’s finest. I'm so happy with my decision”. After his manager told him about Panathinaikos’ offer, “I needed two days to discuss it with my family. They always have an important role to my decisions. After we agreed on coming to Athens altogether, I accepted the offer. I have big ambitions and my new team plays at the highest level. It means a lot, they got six times the European championship, plus many more domestic titles. It’s the biggest step of my career. I am ready to give my best. I cannot wait to come to Athens next week, and to learn all about my new team, and to meet my new teammates. I am really excited. I’m a team player and I’m looking forward to meeting my coach, and he can be sure that from now I am going to give whatever he needs me to give, for our team to be the best possible one”.

He is excited to get a statue built for him and win multiple MVPs in that weak league.

Just another NBA scrub realizing it'd be easier to make a name for himself in the Euroleague.

Armstong will earn $900,000 for the season. He was signed to be Panathinaikos' backup center.

I heard Hilton means Hakeem in Greek.

Euroleague - not sure if you remember, but you suggested a few games to watch about a month ago...I've checked a few out, and will watch the rest when I have more time

from my understanding, the Euroleague season (or tournament, haven't really done much research on the format yet) is beginning soon, so I figured I'd try to watch some live games this year

I have a few questions:

(1) can you explain the format?
(2) when does this all start, and what are the important dates to keep in mind?
(3) my two principal ethnicities are Italian and German, which both seem to be fairly well represented; what can you tell me about the two teams (key players, recent success, etc.) from each country playing this year (Montepaschi Siena, Emporio Armani Milano for Italy and ALBA Berlin, Brose Baskets Bamberg for Germany)?

http://www.euroleague.net/ has everything that you are looking for there. Just check out the website.

As for the two German clubs, don't expect much. Neither of them are any good at all.

As for the two Italian clubs, Milano has a very good team, with lots of good players. Siena has some good players, but their basically almost an entirely new team, so no relation at all to the team that won 6 straight Italian titles.

I would say Milano has a shot at making the Euroleague Final Four, but they would probably not be favored to do so.

Just another scrub that couldn't make it in the NBA realizing how bad the Euroleague is. I won't be surprised if he's dubbed the European Ewing.

I remember when the Rockets got Hilton Armstrong in a trade. Rockets fans were happy that they finally had a backup 7 footer on the team, until he played basketball.

I predict Shaq-like dominance for this bum who couldn't get off the pine in the NBA.

Hilton Armstrong Euroleague Dominance:

35 pts/15 rbs/5 blks
