WHAT THEY SAY...
"I am very proud about it, because it means that people think that I gave something to European club basketball. I tried to do the best I could throughout my career and it all meant something for people. All the work has been recognized and that is a very good thing. It is like a prize to all the work I put on court - all the sweat, blood, broken bones doesn't matter. Being in this list is very important for me."
