Sergio Llull RumorsAll NBA Players
Pau Gasol talked about the upcoming Eurobasket and he didn’t forget the big absence of the Spanish national team. Speaking about Sergio Llull’s injury he said: “It was an emotional and psychological blow to the team. He is a guy you want to play with and a major contributor to the team. It will be difficult to cover him, but each player has to contribute. I wish we can win the championship and dedicate our success to Sergi, who is an important part of this team”.
However, this will provide more attention to Doncic. ESPN’s Mike Schmitz expects more from the top prospect without Llull available for Real Madrid. This sentiment was echoed by Jeremy Woo, who published a feature on Doncic earlier today (via Sports Illustrated). Doncic will have every chance to make his case, and additional responsibility for his club given the recent news that Real Madrid backcourt-mate and reigning EuroLeague MVP (and longtime Houston Rockets stash) Sergio Llull tore his ACL playing for Spain.
