Olympiacos Piraeus held a press conference at the Peace and Friendship Stadium to honor Vassilis Spanoulis.

Giannis Antetokounmpo appeared on the video wall and addressed his former teammate in the Greek national team, saying he would not exist without "Kill Bill."

"Thank you for what you've done for basketball and me," the NBA champ with the Milwaukee Bucks said.

"Only a few people had your mindset. That's why you were one of the best in Europe. You weren't the tallest or the quickest or the strongest, but you were a killer, and you worked hard. I've learned so much about you, and I keep going.

Just as you took the torch from Galis, I take it from you. We love you. Spend time with your family. We learned a lot from Galis, we learned a lot from you too. Without Nikos, there would be no Vassilis, and without Vassilis, there would be no Giannis," said the MVP Finals MVP.
