After a huge performance during last year’s EuroBasket and especially during the fight for third place against Slovenia, where he managed to beat everybody, Sofoklis is ready to conquer the world like he did during the 2006 semi-final game against USA in Tokyo.
Over the last two years he has worked really hard.
He left behind all the bad attitudes and the bad habits.
He doesn’t want to remember his days at the Swiss fitness centre and is just focusing on being capable of becoming one of the hot spots of the FIBA World Championship.
A real miracle of nature, powerful and strong enough to compete with everybody, Schortsianitis can become the X-factor for this Greek team.
Only a few players can repel his offensive power when he gets the ball in the low post.
Playing for the coach he loves in Kazlauskas (the one who made special work for him during his Olympiacos days) ‘Sofo’ can become the leader in the paint.
