Berlin, Germany – Spain made history, beating France in the EuroBasket final and winning its sixth FIBA tournament of the century.

Lorenzo Brown played once again an amazing game, recording a 14 points and 11 assists double-double and earning a spot in the EuroBasket 2022 All-Star Five, alongside his teammate and MVP of the tournament Willy Hernangomez.

The naturalized point guard expressed his joy in the mixed zone after the game, while calling his family. “Winning the gold medal with Spain was my first objective. It came with a lot of trous, and we did it”, he said after the 88-76 victory.

The new Maccabi Tel Aviv player was criticized a lot after his arrival on Sergio Scariolo’s team.

“At the end of the day, we all speak the same language out there on the court. No matter what color you are or where you are from, we’re all brothers and we’re all humans. Winning this gold medal speaks for itself”, he said.

“I don’t use any words right now. I smile, sit back and enjoy what I’m doing. I’ve learned a lot of Spanish so far, but I can’t quite put everything together. Next summer I’ll be speaking full Spanish for you guys”, he joked about his language level.
