Scouting report
Would you say this is the worst thing about the NBA? Tomas Satoransky: “I think that’s the hardest thing. The truth is that it is a business, something that I never wanted to accept in this sense and confirm it. You always had a passion for basketball, it’s clear that they pay us a lot of money but sometimes it’s too much business and that makes it difficult to build chemistry in the team, which is very important and Spain showed it in the Eurobasket. It is the most difficult especially when you have small children, it has to be really tough for some players”.
We’ve talked a lot about the bad side of the NBA but it also has good things, obviously. For you, what is the best thing about being there? Tomas Satoransky: “To be able to say that you are an NBA player [laughs]. That already gives you a lot of respect in many places. That happened to me in my country, nobody followed basketball very much but if they know that you are from the NBA they already look at you differently and give you more importance. And compete against the best players in the best stadiums and have fans all over the world. But then the time comes and you have to decide… It was very nice and I wanted to fulfill my dream… but that’s it [laughs]”.
The Czech Republic and Tomas Satoransky will wait until the last second, hoping that the leader of the Czech national team will be able to play in Eurobasket 2022 in front of his home crowd. As Michal Sob, the national team manager said to the local press: “It’s a matter still in question. However, rehabilitation is going in the right direction”.
The final decision will be made on Wednesday evening and will be announced on Thursday afternoon when the Czech national team has to present its official roster to FIBA. There’s also the scenario that Satoransky will be part of the roster, even if he misses the start of the tournament. As Sob admitted: “We made his house like the Chicago Hope hospital. He has been in a positive mood and he believes that he will be able to return”.
