    Furthermore, it was certain that the whole Spanish will be able to win the gold medal. "I always said to win the gold, it is our goal. Everything we have achieved is incredible, and we had the opportunity in the Eurobasket Madrid to do so. We all want the medal, which is achievable this year thanks to a strong and competitive team like ours, "value.

    The International, which took stock of his first year in the NBA, it announced that it expects to have "a more prominent role in Portland. "I realize that all the equipment you know and say the second year is more complicated. Within the team, I do not like the role of Youth, which is very complicated because I have front to Roy, but I like more importance in the team, "he said.

    However, the shooting guard celebrated having the confidence of its technical, Nate McMillan. "The coach has shown that he has more confidence in me, which is the most important, and I hope that a more important role. Working in a little over the summer, I can take," he added.

    Rudy Fernandez also asked that he was not designated as a 'shooter', as it is believed able to do more to pull triples - although getting the record for a rookie endorsements -. Inside the track are also delighted me, although sometimes I have been linked as a 'shooter', and tell me that they can see me do other things and I too, "he said, while he had found received congratulations for its adaptation to the Blazers.

    For the next season, asked about the evils of the team, said the "inexperience". "We lack a little experience. I love that we were all next year, but it will be difficult, but it is a very talented team and have helped me a lot. There is good understanding, Roy is a leader inside and outside the track, and this is important. Winning 52 games means that the team is good and we can aspire to much if we have the experience that we gradually catching, "he said.

    Tell Ricky to "decide for him"

    The shooting today asked to escort his former Ricky Rubio of DKV Joventut base yet, that "he decided, not representatives or family through the jump to the NBA, Rudy looks better as well trained in Europe.

    "I can not see me playing with the best in the world and prolong my stay at the Youth, to get ready to play there because I was not capable. It depends on him to make the leap or not, he alone, without family or representatives" explained in Portland.

    However, he commented that the Masnou is known there and has options to get up in 'draft'. "After the injury, is returning to be the Ricky we know. You should be aware that this is very hard, but is hopeful of getting up, and has options because they say that the 'draft' is not as strong as other years. If you are ready to take the leap, but that makes the biggest project of Youth, "he said.

    As a friend of the couple did not dare basis to decide for him or to advise, but to put his case as an example, it appears that Rudy would prefer that the base Catalan wait a year before leaving.

    "Ricky is fortunate to be well prepared and play with my feet on the ground. I'm not telling who what to do if you want to be going because it would not be happy. If you are not comfortable playing in Europe, which El Salto. If you think you can grow as a player here, to stay here. I was asked many years and was making this decision more accurate. Who would have said that be where I am now. I think I did very well trained in The Youth, "he said
    I am a fan of The Blazers and everyone on the team! They are all great.
