PLAYS

HARD TRAINING

ONLY THE BEST OF YOU

There's only one word for success: WORK, WORK, WORK and WORK. As Michelangelo said: we must learn to eliminate our surplus until everyone's inner excellence appears. Then, on the court, perhaps chance or fate will decree the last word.....

LET'S PLAY IT

MAKING DECISIONS

I'm not afraid of the responsibility to decide. Someone must take the risk, find the appropriate place and time and then .... feeling that everything stops for an instant, just the right time to bend your arm and with the utmost precision throw the ball towards the basket. A great responsibility, obviously.

WITH DECISION

Ataque vs. Defensa

Cuando enfrente tienes a un gran defensor, el ataque resulta muy complicado.

Thanks Knipeos

MY JUMP

Con estilo

El lanzamiento a media distancia creo que es mi 'arma más potente', junto con la velocidad y la explosividad con que intento ejecutar la jugada. Tal vez las jugadas que mejor se me dan son las bandejas extremas, el parar y saltar para lanzar a 4 ó 5 metros y los triples utilizando el mismo procedimiento.

THREE POINTERS

3 POINTERS

I have a gift for three-pointer throws: though along the game is not as easy as when training, but I usually get good percentages of success in three-pointers. Now with the rise up to 6.75 meters, I hope to keep on having the same precision and accuracy in this type of play as before.

SHOWTIME

Bilbao Showtime 2007

That year I won the three-pointer competition in Bilbao. The following year it was Bogavac who won, but the most incredible shooter is my friend Louis Bullock: he has won that honour on 3 ocassions.

VICTORY

SWEET VICTORY

How easy it is to celebrate a victory!

OR DEFEAT

DEFEAT = 0

The same as in the America's Cup, in basketball "there is no second" either. Only a victory is worth for the public, for your coach, the team owners and sponsors ..... and also for you. Therefore, we fight until the last second, leaving our skin on the court. I usually train like an animal after a bad game if we lose the match .
