Panathinaikos lives in the constellation of Dwayne Bacon. The same applies to the American “bomber” who can’t wait any longer and expressed it to paobc.gr.
“I feel great to be a member of Panathinaikos. It is a club that has the spirit of a winner. A team where many great players from the NBA and beyond have played,” he initially stated and went on to say that: “I’m excited because I think I can help her significantly to get victories. I will do everything I can, I will give 100% of my potential to achieve something good.”
The new transfer acquisition of the “greens” was mentioned in Paris Lee-Mike James, but also in the huge Dominic Wilkins: “As I mentioned before, many great players have worn the green jersey. I know that Dominic Wilkins has played for Panathinaikos. It’s a real myth.”
“I know, of course, that Mike James has also worn this jersey, while now Paris Lee is playing. I have watched Mike’s games at Panathinaikos, I have seen the atmosphere created by the fans at OAKA. I’m excited and can’t wait to play in front of these fans.”
The 27-year-old American will rematch his friend and former Monaco team-mate Paris Lee. “Paris is a friend of mine and I’m very happy to have him as a teammate again. We talked a lot together and he told me the best about the team. He and Mike had a great partnership last year.”
“They helped me a lot to adapt to Europe and to have a very good season in Monaco. I’ve watched some of this year’s matches and I think I can give the team what it needs to get a boost.”
“No need to say more… Let’s win,” Bacon clarified!
As for his goals? “Only victories! It is too early to talk about goals. Last year with Monaco in the EuroLeague we didn’t start as well as we would have liked, but in the end we made it to the playoffs and missed out on qualifying for the final four. So it is never too late to recover and achieve something good. We have many matches ahead of us. We will look at each one individually with only the goal of winning.”
He saved the best for last as he sent a message to Panathinaikos fans. “I would not like to promise anything. I will work hard in the two years of my contract with the team, always giving 100%. I’m very confident in my abilities and I think I can play better than what you saw last year. I can give the team the push they need to turn the switch. In this effort we want our fans on our side. No need to say more… Let’s win!
“So it’s never too late to recover and achieve something good.”
