In an interview for the Italian media La Repubblica, the veteran player spoke of his possible return to the courts with the clear objective of wearing shorts in the NBA once again. In California? A possibility that he certainly contemplates.

“Well, that wouldn’t be bad at all. But it depends on several factors, some of which I do not control. That is why, at this time, I prefer to focus on the day-to-day work that will allow me to put my left foot injury behind me. Once this goal is achieved, everything that comes then will be special and I intend to enjoy it. “

Thus, the Spanish international has been working tirelessly on his complete recovery with his eye on the dispute of the Tokyo Olympic Games postponed for this 2021.
