A New Challenge

September 30, 2009

My second NBA season has arrived, after the European Championship in Poland, a gold medal, and a great summer. It is a challenge that I'm excited to take on. My first year in the league was good, but it wasn't easy. They say the second year is even harder because the other teams and rival players know your game. But I'm excited to take on this new challenge and take another step forward in the NBA.

After celebrating the gold medal I didn't have much time to rest. I had to do a photo shoot for a new American Crew campaign, and play a part in Bido Bido, which was my last goodbye to summer. On Saturday the 26th I flew to Portland. It's a very, very long trip. On Sunday I did some shopping, and on Monday I went to work. Monday was media day, a day that you have to have a lot of patience and a good attitude. We spend hours taking pictures, videos, interviews, commercials, announcements . . . On Tuesday practice starts, twice a day all week. I'll tell you how it all goes.

Un Saludo,
