After his departure from the San Antonio Spurs, Pau Gasol faces a new adventure in the Bucks. Once again he has the opportunity to fight for his third ring, something that remains an ambition for the 38-year-old center as he mentions.

“It’s another challenge. I am a very competitive player and I want to contribute, I want to win,” admitted Gasol. “I do not know how many more seasons I can play, so I want to take advantage of every second, every minute. When the Bucks opportunity appeared both parties were very excited.”

He admits he is having a good adaptation and believes that he will have to contribute, especially in the playoffs:

“The Bucks are a great team, they have the best balance in the league this season and an important opportunity to be able to fight for the championship. It is a very talented team, both the players and the technical staff. They are in a sweet moment, chemistry is palpable, it is seen. I wanted to be part of this team and contribute my seniority and leadership to the team, especially in the face of the end of the season. “

On the opportunity to play the Conference Finals against the Raptors and his brother Marc, he preferred to be cautious:

” Today is a possibility. Our teams are first and second in the Conference, but there is no reason to take it for granted. I focus on our team and go step by step. To finish in good time the regular season to arrive in good time to the playoffs, and then worry about the first round “.
