After leading Spain to the 21st straight quarterfinals appearance in a Eurobasket, Lorenzo Brown was in the spotlight, and not necessarily for the right reason.
Lithuanian forward Mindaugas Kuzminskas during the press conference said to a Spanish reporter about the presence of Brown, who got the Spanish passport this summer: “I am not sure how this team would look without Lorenzo Brown because you signed him only this summer. But it is how it is”.
Brown was asked on the matter a little bit later when he was also at the press conference and he explained how he feels and why he doesn’t care about any comments.
As he said: “Even if I haven’t been here long, I feel like these guys… They have known each other so long and they brought me in as one of them. So, it’s just an amazing feeling to have that brotherhood, “la familia” as they call it. It’s really a family. I am coming in here and I am a regular American guy and those guys are talking in Spanish. And I am learning every single day, so it’s amazing what I have learned and how they treated me so far. The outside noise doesn’t bother me at all. I am just worried about what these guys feel about me. And it’s amazing. They love me and I love these guys”.
