Wilkins speaks about the good and bad playing for Panathinaikos of Athens after several All-Star season in the NBA:
I had reached my frustration point. I said, ‘I’m tired of being treated like crap, I’m not going to be treated like that anymore. I haven’t had any problems with the fans. One game, I was a little under the weather and they were cheering for me to come in at the end just so I wouldn’t leave without any points. That, to me, was the greatest thing — I’d never experienced anything like that before.
