Nikos Gallis Basketball Career

Name: Nikos Georgalis
Nickname: Nik the Greek
Born: 07/23/1957
Origin: New Jersey, USA
Height: 6-0/1,83kg
College: Seton Hall
Drafted: 1979, Fourth Round, 68th pick by Celtics
Languages: English, Greek
Website: www.omiros.de & InterBasket Forums
Teams (jersey): Hellas National Team
FACTS: Nikos Galis was born in New Jersey, USA, on the 23rd July 1957. The child of a poor immigrant family from Rhodes, Galis was the fourth and last child, but was destined to become the best! Boxing becomes basketball...Following in his father's footsteps, Galis took up boxing in his early years, his father George Georgalis having been a very good boxer in his youth. Fearful of seeing him come home with his face covered in blood, his mother, Stella Georgali intervened to persuade him to take up something else. He didn't find rugby attractive, so he took up the other most popular sport in the New Jersey neighborhoods: basketball. In an interview for the magazine "Triponto" some years ago he said "In our neighborhood I would always play the older boys and beat them. I would rarely lose whether I was playing boys my own age or older!"

Boxing becomes basketball...Following in his father's footsteps, Galis took up boxing in his early years, his father George Georgalis having been a very good boxer in his youth. Fearful of seeing him come home with his face covered in blood, his mother, Stella Georgali intervened to persuade him to take up something else. He didn't find American football attractive, so he took up the other most popular sport in the New Jersey neighbourhoods: basketball. In an interview for the magazine "Triponto" some years ago he said, "In our neighbourhood I would always play against the older boys and beat them. I would rarely lose whether I was playing boys my own age or older!"
Career Highlights & History:
Galis in the NCAA: So Galis enrolled in Union Hill High School and became a crucial and irreplaceable player. Important New York colleges began to show an interest in him, but Galis finally ended up with the Seton Hall Pirates. There he got the number 11 vest and became a crucial player fairly quickly. But the lack of other good players prevented Galis' team from reaching any NCAA finals in the 4 years that he was playing there. In his fourth and final year, Galis, by now a shooting guard, saw his point average reach 27.5 and his name ranked third among the leading NCAA scorers, behind the great Larry Bird and Balder. When he left Seton Hall, his name was on nearly every record-scoring list in his college’s history.
Mr Manon: In the spring of 1979 Galis realised that the time had come for him to try and play in the NBA. But this big plan was ruined by the whims of his manager, Bill Manon, who may have ruined Galis' career but surely all Greeks are now grateful to him. Bill Manon was the agent of a few basketball players but mostly actors and artists, etc. Among those was the famous Diana Ross who had just launched her solo career away from her band "The Supremes". 'Upside Down' became a big hit and the agent started making money hand over fist, neglecting his then 22-year-old Greek basketball player. So, from the first round of drafts, Galis found himself in the fourth with the number 68 and was picked by the Boston Celtics who had already chosen Larry Bird and wanted Galis just to make up the numbers. Galis tried to stay in the NBA but at the worst possible moment an injury left him out for 2 weeks and on his return, he found Henderson had taken his place.
NBA 0 - Greece 1: So he was forced to say goodbye to the NBA, but he would not have believed it if he had been told that soon after he would become famous in the land of his forefathers, where, as he admits now, he didn't even know they played basketball.
These are some quotes of important world basketball figures talking about Nikos Galis
Michael Jordan (October1983, National team of Greece Vs North Carolina State University for the "Dimitria" tournament): "I did not expect to find such a good offensive player in Europe, especially in your country."
Drazen Petrovic: " I'd love to play in the same team with him so I can pass the ball to him to score!"
Alexander Petrovic: “Drazen is my brother, but as the best European player for 1987 I voted for Nikos Galis”
Arvidas Sabonis: "I have the feeling that if Galis wants to score a basket, he will score, no matter what the opponent does. He is always determined to succeed."
Bob McAdoo: "I've seen Galis do things that I have not seen neither Lakers nor Celtics do."
Vojcek Kricovski (CSKA Moscow coach): “I had given specific instructions on how to defend against the other 4 players. As for Nikos, we just had to sit down and pray!”
Audi Norris: "I have seen a lot of big players in my life, but what Galis did today (1987-88, Barcelona - Aris) can only be done by 2-3 players in the hall world."
Roud Harevain (Maccabi Tel-Aviv head coach): “ There is only one way I can think of to stop Nikos from scoring! Lock him up in the hotel!”
