Biography (wiki)

Sofoklis Schortsanitis (Greek: Σοφοκλής Σχορτσανίτης) (born 22 June 1985) is a Greek professional basketball player. At 2.06 m (6 ft 9 in) he plays at the center position. He was born in Tiko, Cameroon, to a Greek father, Konstantinos, and a Cameroonian mother, Georgette.

An All-EuroLeague First Team selection in 2011, "Big Sofo" or "Baby Shaq" as he is nicknamed, won the EuroLeague title in 2014 with Maccabi Tel Aviv, and reached the EuroLeague Final on another two occasions in 2010 and 2011, while playing for Olympiacos and Maccabi respectively. He was a member of the Greek national team, as they captured silver medal honours in the 2006 FIBA World Championship, and a bronze medal in the EuroBasket 2009.

Born in his native port town of Tiko, Cameroon, Sofoklis moved to his other country, Greece, with his parents, when he was very young. He has a younger brother called Alexandros. Sofoklis first took up basketball in his home city of Kavala. It was there where his parents advised him to play basketball, and Sofoklis at first didn't like the sport. But eventually the game grew on him, and he was always practicing and then progressively, he began to like it, which led to him playing it every day. Eventually, a scout/coach discovered his talent, and pushed him into the sport.
