New coach of the six-time EuroLeague champions Panathinaikos B.C. OPAP, Rick Pitino, spoke to the press during his first training session with the team in Athens on Thursday, ahead his side's crucial game against CSKA Moscow on December 28.

Panathinaikos' head coach said that the changes he would introduce ahead of the CSKA game would be "subtle".

"You can't make too many changes now. I'll confuse them and make things worse. And I want to make things better, not worse."

Commenting on the opponent, Pitino said that CSKA Moscow is "very good defensively, very good offensively." He noted that "the only answer right now" is to "play harder and execute better."
