"We were not just born to play basketball", he said speaking to Sport24 Radio. "We were born to face tough moments. I keep telling my kids that character counts more than talent. Character builds players and teams. We were facing a great team with a 40 million budget, huge personalities and an excellent coach. To beat them three times in a row is a triumph. It is team created to win the Euroleague, but we made it against them. It is a huge achievement, maybe the biggest because Siena and Efes aren't Barcelona. It is a feat, considering all the injury problems".
