An athletic, explosive wing player, whose muscular physique makes him a very promising talent … At 6'8 he has great size for the perimeter positions … He has nice bulk on his frame and he knows how to use it, whether its absorbing contact when getting to the hoop, or taking advantage of a mismatch in the low-post.
He depends on his strength too much to get by his defender as his first step is not first class … He is more comfortable operating out of the triple threat rather than working off the dribble, where he struggles handling the ball at times

Charalampopoulos has played previously for Egaleo.
On Charalampopoulos: (By Chris Mammides, 2011)
Vassilis consider being the most talented player born in 1997 in the whole country. It's called by the Greek media the next big thing in the Greek Basketball. Even though only 14 years old, Vasilis participated with the Greek U16 NT not only as a simple bencher but had an active role and with nearly 17 minutes in the court prove to be a very important part of the Hellenic NT. In Egaleo where he was playing the last three years was among the stand outs on a permanent basis. Being nearly a 6'7' he can easily play in three positions and he is a great ball handler who reminds a lot the legendary 3D due to his many responsibilities in the court. All these characteristics of this young talent forced the main scouter of Barcelona to pay a visit in Pagrati and scout the player on behalf of the Blau Grana, something which became well known to many other teams in the country who would love to get him in their roster. Charalampopoulos can play in both Forward positions and has natural talent and smartness that allows him to play against much taller and stronger opponents. He is very active on the offensive glass while he has an amazing timing on the air, he can dish a rebound from any place in the court, while at the same time can organize his team-mates like a true point guard while his shooting abilities are amazingly solid for his age. A hard working talent who have started playing basketball in Egaleo with the local team at the age of 8 years old. He is currently a mature player as he spent his last two seasons in the difficult league of the second division being the leader of his team in all the aspect. He will definitely be transferring very soon to either an A1 team or possibly to a high School in order to proceed his career in the NCAA
