ANDl Brazilian base of Lenovo Tenerife, Marcelinho Huertas, has just completed a historic season with the Canarian team. Orchards answered the call of Radio MARCA from Split, where he seeks to qualify for Tokyo 2020 with his selection in the pre-Olympic.
“Playing with the national team is always a source of pride. There is no margin for error, in the first phase they force you to win 2 games. There are tough rivals, but we are confident and believe in our possibilities,” he explained.
The 38-year-old from Rio de Janeiro continues to complete great campaigns in the ACB and is the leader of a Tenerife that has had one of the best seasons in its history. “It is savored a lot and you give value to what you have achieved. The key to everything is to keep enjoying it, which is the key to success. I face all challenges with a lot of passion and a lot of desire. We had two very good seasons in Tenerife and we are going to keep the block. You have to do things well to preserve the illusion, “he said.
Huertas shared a dressing room with Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol in some historic Lakers. “Pau Gasol is Pau Gasol, the best player in the history of Spanish basketball. What else can we say about him? and the great talent, passion and desire to win that he has, “he said.
The Brazilian won many titles at FC Barcelona and shared the base position with Sarunas Jasikevicius. “Besides being a great coach, it is very important that he has been a player. He has transferred his ideas wonderfully and has changed the face of Barça. It is culé for life and that shows, “he explained.
Marcelinho Huertas will continue to face challenges with his country and with Lenovo Tenerife. “I will go for all the challenges that lie ahead. I will go for all of them always, every time I enter the court I have the same illusion to play “, ended.
