Nicolás Laprovittola will take the airlift to exchange Real Madrid for Barcelona. The 1.90-meter, 31-year-old Argentine guard, after arriving at the white club as MVP of the Endesa League, has spent two seasons in which his performance was questioned, although for him “they were good years.”
“I always had confidence and I believed that I could be at the level that they wanted from me. I am not bad or dissatisfied with what I was able to give him. There were many problems, many changes, I had to fight a lot but the two years were good and they placed me in a level and in teams that fight for everything in Spain and Europe “, assures the base in a conversation with Basketball Plus.
The player suffered an injury in the final stretch of the season and was unable to help the team: “It was a shame, because I felt good and I think the team was leaning on me. Thanks to that end of the season and for everything I fought for. I found a club like Barcelona that is betting on me. It means that things were not done badly. “
Now, Laprovittola does the opposite way to Adam Hanga and Thomas Heurtel, who will play in white. “It’s going to be interesting. There were many changes to the path, so I don’t think it will generate much noise,” considers the point guard who will focus “on playing well, on adapting to Saras’ game. [Jasikevicius], to my colleagues and not much else. The objectives are clear. We know what we are going to play on all the fields. “
The Argentine player has asked for references to his compatriot Leandro Bolmaro, who has played for Barça and is now going to the NBA. “I also spoke with Jasikevicius. Everyone speaks highly of him and for me to be able to have him as a coach is very good for my career. He is the coach who is shaping the way people play in Europe, and being able to be coached by him is a very honor. I hope we can understand each other in the best way. ”
Regarding his role in the Barça team, Laprovittola considers that “it will be similar to that of Madrid, where there was a very important base like Facu and now I have Calathes at Barcelona. It’s up to me to win minutes, build my place in the team, win me the respect of the coach, my teammates, the people of Barcelona. For that I have to play well. “
