Q: This was your 10th EuroLeague season. How important was the EuroLeague for your development as a player? Pablo Prigioni: “Look, the EuroLeague was the maximum motivation anyone could have. Playing the EuroLeague allows you to play against the best teams and the best players in Europe. It has always been a great challenge and I took it that way. I enjoyed a lot competing all around Europe against the best. I always said over the last few years, while I was in the NBA, that playing the EuroLeague had nothing to envy in comparison to playing in the NBA because of its competition level and the excitement it brings. I don’t know how to express it because the Spanish League is also really strong, it has always been, but the EuroLeague was the biggest step to take in Europe.”

But there’s also an other reason that made him say “no” to offers by clubs, as he reveals. “Some teams from Europe called me when I was a free agent, but I said no. Me and my wife decided to come to Argentina and spend some time together because I hadn’t been able to do it for a long time. We stayed in Houston for three weeks and we came back to Argentina for the holidays. I will be there until the first days of January when we will go to Spain so that the boys will begin school there. And then I’ll consider playing from January to the end of the season.”
