Pro career

A 6 ft 10 ¾ in (2.10 m) power forward, who can also play in the small forward or (under special circumstances) center position, Tsartsaris was first noticed by professional Greek clubs as a wonder kid, when he was playing in the lower divisions for the team of Philippos of Veria.

Being unable to break his contract with Philippos, which wasn't letting him to move to another Greek club, he chose at the age of 17, to move for one year (1997-98 season) to the Icelandic club Grindavik, becoming one of the better rebounders of the Icelandic League. He returned to Greece in 1998, and he was signed on a free transfer by Near East. The following year, he moved to Peristeri and in 2002, to Panathinaikos. He was the Greek Cup MVP for 3 consecutive years.
