The positive reviews continue for Alex Abrines, who is getting looks for late in the first round without getting much publicity. It didn’t help his North American marking that Abrines was not at Eurocamp because his season in Spain was still in progress. “I don’t like him. I love him,” said one scout who has watched the Spanish shooting guard many times. “His feel for the game is incredible.”
Scott Howard-Cooper: Continue to get positive reports on Alex Abrines, with Spanish team and not at #adidasEurocamp. Candidate for late-first as a stash player.
As it seems Alex Abrines does not only possess the ability, but also the necessary confidence to become a great player. “I got the talent to be better than Rudy”, he told to Εurohoops a few hours before facing him at the 2nd semifinal of final-4 in London. Don’t take him wrong though. He was not arrogant, or cocky. He was just naturally confident.
You know that lots of NBA scouts are gonna be watching you in London. Does that give you an extra motive to play well, or puts more pressure to you; Alex Abrines: “No no, there is no extra motivation, I’m really motivated to play, it’s my first final-4 and I think it’s a big think to live. That’s it. If you put some pressure, you will play bad”. -Is the NBA in the back side of your mind; Alex Abrines: “No, not now. I’m just thinking the final-4 and then I’ll think about the playoffs”.
