Real Madrid guard Sergio Llull has been with the team since 2007 and sees himself staying a “Madridista”… forever.
Contrary to many European stars that have made the jump to the NBA at some moment in their careers, Llull feels quite pleased with remaining exactly where he is. “Of course it’s hard to say no because the NBA is very tempting on all levels. But I’ve explained many times that I’m happy here with Real Madrid. I want to stay here and keep winning.”
Lull also talked about Luka Doncic leaving Real Madrid to begin his NBA career with the Dallas Mavericks, commenting that the reigning EuroLeague, Final Four, and ACB MVP is more or less irreplaceable. “Luka can’t be replaced with a single player because he’s a unique player. One of those players that come once in 20-30 years. I think we all have to make a step up so that his absence is noticed as little as possible.”
