It was a pretty strange season for "Nick the Greek". Zisis was the sixth man of the National Team at Belgrade's Eurobasket, the person who hit three decisive free throws in the semi-finals against France and the player who assisted Diamantidi on his game-winning three-pointer. But just a few months later, he was very unlucky getting injured and staying away almost three months. When Benetton signed him last September, coach David Blatt said: "When my son grows up, I want him to be like Nikos". Without Zisis, Benetton failed to qualify for Euroleague's play-offs.
He is a smart player, a great shooter and much better passer than his national team stats show. Nikos is also a player who makes his teammates better.
