What's your family background?

My mom was probably around twelve when she went to Australia, and then from Australia she came here. And my dad, I don't know…I think age ten or eleven. I've got one older brother and one older sister that were born in Ohio."

I had the opportunity to see the entire interview with Kosta Koufos. He was interviewed right after a two hour workout at a Nike summer league camp at which time he was out of breath and was literally surrounded by interviewers who wouldn't let him move and who demanded to know all about him, since he made fools out of the big stars from NYC, Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago and LA. He was tired and his answers came out in spurts when he was bent over attempting to catch his breath. He is not a dick and he was as straight up as he could be in that situation. There is no high school talent in Greece, and maybe three high school seniors in the US, who can match his style of play and his shooting ability given his size. He is the real deal. The big city players at the many summer camps that he attended were so impressed with him that they are sending videos of themselves to the Ohio State coach so that they will be recruited to play with him. We Ohio State fans can't wait until next year when he can play with Greg Odum, but we know that if he stays healthy and keeps getting better, he will jump to the NBA after his second year.
