Sergio Llull RumorsAll NBA Players
“We are in this bubble to avoid the risk of infections,” Real Madrid point guard Sergio Llull said. “It’s strange, and mentally it requires a big effort, but we’re going to do it so that everything goes well and people can enjoy basketball again from their homes.” The Spanish basketball league said the games in this final tournament will be broadcast in 125 countries, including the United States.
Andres Nocioni on Facundo Campazzo: “I think that Real Madrid will have to listen to offers from NBA teams this summer. On behalf of his agent, Claudio Villanueva, or some club that wants him, I think that some team is going to try to turn the situation around and bring him to the NBA, that’s the reality. It also seems to me that Madrid is going to have to understand that it is going to be a move that he is going to try to make at some point. It is not easy for the players to make a great decision like Sergio Llull did, not everyone has that mentality of staying in Europe as Sergio has done. Facundo always saw the NBA as a possibility, since he was very young. He is not going to push it, but circumstances are going to make him consider the possibility.”
In addition, Larkin considers Sergio Llull the most clutch player and Vassilis Spanoulis a super legend, enjoys watching Facundo Campazzo, picks Michael Jordan over LeBron James, and selects Allen Iverson as his favorite player.
Spain’s experienced core didn’t break against a feisty Australia and survived a double-overtime to return to the final of FIBA World Cup after 13 long years with a 95-88 victory. Australia had a great chance to make history and showcased impressive athleticism for 50 minutes, though when Sergio Llull stepped foot in the second OT, things turned out in Spain’s favor.
Marc Stein: Sergio Llull en fuego right off the Spain bench and instantly reminds you he’s the modern-day Bodiroga. The Rockets have his NBA rights and, yes, I’m told they would still love to sign him … but Llull wants to keep playing his club ball in his beloved Madrid. Gotta respect it.
