Goudelock produced a remarkable display against Olympiakos last night running the show with 24 points and the 26-year-old American guard paid tribute to his coach, Zeljko Obradovic with whom he has improved a lot at Fenerbahce.
“It was a great win. I felt really sharp from the beginning but I have to say that my teammates did a good job creating opportunities for me to shoot. Obradovic is the toughest coach I've ever had but under him I have vastly improved. I understand the game better both defensively and offensively and Obradovic has played his role on that,” Goudelock told sdna.gr.
Goudelock's spell in the NBA was back in 2013 when he played at Los Angeles Lakers and the 26-year-old guard has never learned the reason why he left the club. “I don't know why I left Lakers. I feel that I produced some good performances but I didn't continue there. Sometimes the things do not go the way you want but you need to come out stronger and never to give up,” Goudelock underlined at sdna.gr.
Goudelock also paid tribute to his Greek teammate Nikos Zisis and to Olympiakos Greek ace Vasilis Spanoulis. “Nikos is like my big brother. We played at UNICS Kazan so we're two years in a row together and his help is tremendous. I respect him a lot both as a player and as a person. His move to Fenerbahce has helped us a lot and everyone can see that. As for Spanoulis, he's an exceptional player and we have been speaking for him all the time ahead of the game. We closed him well. Generally we produced a bright performance but when I'm in the game I try to concentrate on my duties and on our whole display rather than on the opponents we face.”
