Mario Hezonja on Saras Jasikevicius and Zeljko Obradovic coaching in NBA: 'They'd get punched in second practice'

“It’s very high tempo. It’s very physical. People want to win here. It doesn’t matter how you look, how many you score, how many you rebound, how many you pass. Just win. It was a learning experience and I’m very thankful I had Xavi there.” Asked about whether any of the European coaches, Zeljko Obradovic or Sarunas Jasikevicius for example, could become NBA head coaches at some time, Mario was clear: “They’d get punched on the second practice, and they’d get fired right after that.”

Hezonja proved to be different and he made it big. At age 17 FC Barcelona swooped in and the teenage rising star received a new level of basketball education from Coach Xavi Pascual. “European basketball is very different. I think you learn every single detail here and every single detail matters. The game, as soon as it starts, is [about] winning. Only winning matters,” Hezonja said.
In an interview with Gigantes del Basket, Barcelona coach Sarunas Jasikevicius has talked about the possible signing of Marc Gasol, who will be free agent at the end of the NBA season. “We have not talked with him. But we don’t have to rush: if there will be a real chance, we will go for it”, Jasikevicius said also in reference to the idea that Barcelona is looking to sign a center.
