Interview with Dusan Sakota - Jun 1, 2012

Dusan Sakota (209-SF-86) former Panathinaikos player spoke to Eurobasket.com:

With scale 1-5 rate the situation in Oostende and tell us few things about.

Payments: 5
Everything in Oostende concerning the payments was 100% professional and on time.

Facilities: 4
Everything in and around the gym was great, except for one detail that I didn't like personally, which is that the weight room was ten minutes by car from the gym, so that makes it a little harder to work out during the season as you'd like.

Fans: 4
Although the gym is rarely full, the fans of Oostende are very supportive of their players and coaches, and always bring a positive energy and atmosphere to the game!

League: 3
Even though many people underestimate the level of basketball played in Belgium, I give it a 3 because of three reasons. Very poor TV and media coverage, very low level of refereeing, and most importantly, very few teams participating in the league (only 9)

City: 5
A great, cozy city by the sea, that makes every basketball player feel comfortable in Belgium, making it that much easier to have your mind only on basketball

Are you happy in Russia now, what plans you have for the new season? Do you want to return to Greece?

I was very glad that I signed for Enisey, Russia for the remainder of the season in January, since it was a great experience to play and live in Siberia for 4 months, and also I believe it was a tremendous help for me to get back on my old level before the injury physically and mentally, by playing in one of the toughest leagues in Europe against teams such as CSKA and Khimki. Of course, I would love to one day return and play in Greece since I have spent 18 years of my life there, but for now my biggest basketball wish and goal is to try and return to the Italian League.

What advice you give to those who have a serious injury to overcome, what you did in your case?

The advice I would give to players overcoming hard injuries is mainly two: DON'T GIVE UP and HAVE A LOT OF PATIENCE! I know for a fact that the hardest possible thing a basketball player has to do in his career is to force himself to practice and rehabilitate as fast as possible, especially when no one is around. Its always easier when there is a coach or a trainer on top of your head telling you what and how to do it, but when you are alone in that gym, thats when you really have to show your love and devotion to the game of basketball, as well as your personal zeal and will to overcome all obstacles in front of you and get back to doing what you love most.. PLAYING!

Who was the best teammate ever had in your career so far.

In my opinion the best teammate player-wise that I ever had would be Diamantidis.

Do you follow the Greek finals? Whats your prediction, Panathinaikos or Olympiakos?

Of course, I am closely following the finals of the Greek League this year. OSFP is bringing a tremendous combination of energy and confidence on the court, especially after winning the Euroleague in a heroic fashion, which makes it very difficult to beat them in any aspect of the game. they dominate on the offensive rebounds, they get many steals and fly to the transition game, and their percentages are sky high due to their incredible confidence, combined with a great desire and wish to finally become champions after 15 years! However, you can never underestimate the heart of the champion, and also since I have spent 5 years of my life there, I know for a fact that PAO is not going to give up without a great fight, using maybe the only advantage that they have over their opponents in this moment...their vast experience in playing games with no tomorrow and winning! So, basically I believe that the best thing to do is not make any predictions but sit back and enjoy the show!!
