“First of all congratulations to Spain. They know how to play these type of games and they showed it in the first half”, he said.

“We were a little slow. My motivational speech was too long and too much for the players. I would like to thank each player. It was a great experience for me. I’d like to thank the federation for giving me the chance since I learned a lot about basketball and myself”, he added.

“It was a tough journey from the beginning. We were fighting our ego’s. I hope we will be better after this tournament not only as players but also as human beings”, he concluded.
