Mike Batiste talked about Vassilis Spanoulis, his former roommate during their Panathinaikos days and what is what like when he left for rival Olympiacos on his second part of his visit to “The Crossover” with Joe Arlauckas.
Arlauckas then brought up the possibility of a Panathinaikos reunion, this time with Batiste as head coach, which the big man did not shoot down.
Batiste was at the heart of the Panathinaikos Athens dynasty that won three EuroLeague crowns in five years between 2007 and 2011. As one of only three players on all three of those championship teams, Batiste represented all the things that made the Greens such a special team. He played with levels of confidence, ferociousness and selflessness that were worthy of the bevy of titles he would conquer. These were all traits that The Crossover host Joe Arlauckas related to in a conversation that grew so interesting that it has been split into two episodes. Here is the second hour of their two-plus-hour chat brought to all fans by 7DAYS.
