"My impressions are great. We have a good combination of young and experienced players. I've met exceptional teammates and we will soon become family. I hope we will be vindicated in the end. The truth is that coach Priftis missed the biggest part of the preseason. We wored hard with the rest of the staff. With ihs return we tried to fix some weaknesses. We keep on improoving and that's our target since we are still in the beginning" McNeal said.
The American guard was asked about the Nick Galis Hall atmosphere: "It's incredible. Before my arrival at Aris I was informed for many things and of course for the atmoshpere. I experienced in person. Their support is amazing and their palm helped our flow in the game especially after the basket collapse. I will always remember this".
McNeals mentioned for the game against AEK and Panathinaikos: "The game against AEK was tough. I want to keep fighting and keer our team spirit. That's very important. Panathinaikos are a historic club with great european successes. We are not afraid of them though. We respect them and with our fans bby our side we will try to prove that we are a tough team. I can't wait for the match to begin".
"Aris are a great club with great european successes. The coach made me come. I believed in his plan. We aim big for this season. I want to prove that I can lead the team since my targets are to reach as far as possible in the three tournament we compete in" McNeal said.
