Kostas Papanikolaou, who this summer signed with the Houston Rockets of the National Basketball Association, launches his blog on NBA Greece, through which he will transfer his thoughts and experiences from the NBA.

The Greek forward spent the 2013-2014 season overseas, playing for FC Barcelona of the ACB Spanish Liga, where his team won the 2013-14 Spanish National Championship.

SPORT24 is the home of the NBA in Greece and Nikos Papaioannou, valuable member of the NBA GREECE team, will be helping Kostas Papanikolaou with his blog, by transferring his thoughts to the keyboard and to all his fans.

Kostas Papanikolaou was very clear about the reasons that lead him to decide joining the Rockets: "I was thinking that I did not want in five years from now to look back at this moment and say that I had the opportunity to play in the NBA and I did not. This was a lifetime opportunity for me and I do not want to lose it. I thought it was the right time. I talked to the general manager of the team (Daryl Morey), while the coach (Kevin McHale) called me, something that meant a lot to me. I did not want to be stupid and lose the opportunity to be here and live the NBA dream."
