“For the guys sometimes coming from a strong nation like Spain, it’s tougher,” said Tomas Satoransky, a Czech who spent seven years playing in Spain before joining the Washington Wizards and now starts for the Chicago Bulls. “I think that was a big issue, a big barrier for Juan Carlos to be successful.” Of course, he also had a choice of cities in which to play — Memphis or Barcelona. “He was in Memphis. He could stay in Barcelona,” Satoransky said. “That was an easier choice. It’s tougher for them to adapt.”
During an interview at an Under Armour event, Stephen Curry talked about Spanish guard Juan Carlos Navarro, who retired this summer after a successful 21-year career. “[Navarro] was one of my favorite Spanish national players,” Curry told Jugones. “He did a move in the 2010 World Championship where he shot a three off of one leg, and I wanted to copy that move.”
