What is much more important than that from the aspect of pure basketball, our team showed a professional attitude, they wanted all the players to give their maximum and that attitude is something that I liked the most. Every game brings something new, different, but the attitude towards the game and the desire to play as we prepared the game is something that is important for me, and for me.

As you have seen, we will continue to work like this, everyone will get minutes, some more, some less, because this is a long-lasting championship, we want everyone to get a chance, to join the team. The championship is very long, I think it will be for us.
