Big Sofo is thinking about the NBA
Sofoklis Schortsanitis(2.06-C), aka Big Sofo, gave an interview to the Greek sports newspaper "Protathlitis". The paper is affiliated to Olympiacos so it was only natural for his interview to appear there. Schortsanitis said that his contract with Olympiacos is due to expire this season and he is seriously considering playing for the LA Clippers in the NBA.
He said that he's been 5 years with Olympiacos and he is sentimentally attached to the team. He also said that he couldn't picture himself in Panathinaikos, it would seem a very distant scenario. Schortsanitis said that he is constant communication with the Clippers and that he would love to visit them in the summer and even possibly play for them in the next season. Schortsanitis will have a busy summer with the Greek National Team in the 2010 World Cup and he also said that if he were to play in the NBA and then return back to Europe he would only want to play for Olympiacos.
