"I greet the friends of basketball.
Our trip continued and the truth is that we have spent more time on the planes than on the ground. If you prefer, more time abroad or away from home, than in the OAKA or at home. First we had to cope with Rethymno, a very good team and in a wonderful audience, where we had of course, many fans on our side.
This is great. To feel that wherever you play your fans is there. Who would not wanted that anyway? And we are very happy that we have it.
We had difficulties in recent days and the problems continued. In the absence of Nick (Pappas) and Lefteris (Bochoridis) Vlado added (Jankovic) and the Ognjen (Kuzmic) and finally James (Gist). We went to play in Barcelona with many problems because the absences are not only affecting the games but our training as well. When we are few we cannot do a normal training. Plus the fact that from the heavy schedule and absences great burden falls to those who are healthy and they are few because of the injuries.
I do not want to believe that I look for excuses. I describe a situation and not delve ever in my career for excuses. That's why we are all very upset by our presence in Barcelona. We will stay close to each other and in this way we will overcome everything. Excuses do not exist.
What we expect from ourselves is the reaction. Should we respond correctly and go back as it should in the next races, starting from the fight with the Colossus. It's gratifying that we are fighting in our home and we know that to us we'll have a very good team that has already shown good image in the Championship. Of course we'll be serious and focused in order to show our best to get back to winning ways and keep his unbeaten Championship.
See you next week
