"For sure it is great memories. We had here our EuroLeague trophy and helped a lot for this team grow up and encouraged our mental character. This was the past is for sure great memories, but now in the present we are looking forward to new challenges.
First of all I feel very proud for my team that made these achievements in the past, it is not easy; everybody knows this. We made a lot of sacrifices to do that. Respect in life and in sports you cannot buy. You have to work very hard to get respect from opponents. This is one big achievement for this team.
I want to say that basketball is a team sport; it’s not about me or some other player. For sure all the teams set their roles and find their chemistry and set their responsibilities. I want to say that the team gives me some responsibility, but all the team works like this, it’s most important for me to help all the team to achieve the goals. It’s not about me; it’s a team sport. Everybody wins, everybody loses.
I enjoy to play basketball. I prefer to play basketball. It’s going to be a really tough game. CSKA is one of the best teams and very well organized with good chemistry and leaders on the court. I think what’s most important is control the game and the rhythm of the game to do our best to follow the game plan. Coaches makes the game plan and we must concentrate to follow the plan", said the 35-year-old former international at the Press Conference of the Final-Four.
