Over the past few weeks, there is a lot of speculation going on about Sergio Llull’s possible jump to the NBA, after excessive interest from the Houston Rockets. The Real Madrid guard spoke to Mundo Deportivo and cleared things out. “Rumors like these will always be there, especially when you beat Oklahoma the way we did. It will probably take a few weeks until the speculations stop”, the player answers. “I am very calm as I’ve said many times. I am very happy here and I’m not thinking of anything else. I just think of the game against Olympiacos on Wednesday, winning titles and celebrating with the fans.”
Storyline: Sergio Llull to Houston?
Fred Katz: Thought this quote from Russell Westbrook about how offenses in Europe “are 10 times better than NBA offense” was interesting: On second game defense, what he saw different “Just our awareness on what plays. I think one thing people don’t realize is guarding teams in Europe, their offenses are 10 times better than NBA offense just because they move around a lot. A lot of movement and not as much talent so they have to do different things to be able to score the basketball. I think it was a good experience for us to be able to go to Europe and be able to guard those offenses and some of the best teams. That’s always good for us.”
