Ukranian Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk ('97) was selected in the All-Tournament Team of last U16 Division "A" European Championships after averaging 25.2 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 3.3 steals. 6'6'' shooting-guard tells us his thoughts.
-When did you start playing basketball?
I started playing basketball at school. In second grade teacher invited my for my first practice, and I accepted. After that I fell in love of basketball.
-What are your thoughts after competing in the U16 EC?
It was a great tournament. I loved it. Was a high level event. I mean organization, players level,... All. The player we've watched will be stars in the NBA and Europe.
-What do you think of the other players of your generation. What player you liked the most and who you would like to play with?
Players like Peno, Mazalin, Papagiannis, Charalampopoulos, Bender, Loubaki, Gombauld, Glisic, Korkmaz, La Torre,... And it isn't a full list. I want to play with Stefan Peno (serbian guard of FC Barcelona), because he is my great friend. I love his game style. I played with him in the States for the Jordan Brand Classic. If we play together we'll show great basketball.
-There are some rumors about an interest of Real Madrid to sign you. After your outstanding performance sure will be many other teams trying to to the same. What is the truth? 
I've received different offers, but I am still thinking about my future.
-Tell us your strengths and weaknesses?
There are a lot of both. I need hard work and all will be good.
-And what about your future goals?
Of course I want to play in the NBA like all the people. And I think it is possible.
-Who is your basketball idol?
I don't have one idol. I like Michael Jordan, Tim Hardaway, Kyrie Irving and Derrick Rose.
-What is your suggest for people trying to become a basketball player?
Only hard work. Hard hard hard work!
-And finally, some people compares you to Manu Ginobili. Do you agree?
It is good, really, but i don't want to be compared to anybody. I want to be me.
