Georgios Papagiannis’s destiny was to return to the Greens, which he did. Panathinaikos’s desire was to see him a Green again, and “Big George” badly wanted to play in green after the NBA as well, so the rest was easy.

After two years in the NBA, the 21-year-old center will put aside the dream of the magical world for now in order to make his Green dream come true and to achieve with Panathinaikos what he left unfinished in 2016, having already made his first steps at the highest level.

Eurohoops looks back on his course, which was marked by Panathinaikos from day one, the team he will now return to finish what he left unfinished two years ago.
