Whenever opting free time into watching basketball games, Gabriel Deck will generally bring himself to the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague over the NBA, he explained in an interview shared on the portal of CABB, the Argentinian Basketball Confederation. “I hardly ever watch basketball games,” he confessed, “This is rare for a player, but the truth is I really don’t watch games in their entirety. Maybe some very interesting matches, but watching games is not my priority.”
“More EuroLeague and sometimes the Argentinian league, but not too much,” he added referring to his preferences, “Actually, I rarely watch NBA games. It doesn’t appeal to me. I didn’t see the Los Angeles Lakers versus Miami Heat finals.”
Gabriel Deck has been recently reported to be on the radar of some NBA teams and while that stays a possibility, the 25-year-old forward has one more year on his contract with Real Madrid and he intends to give his best for teh ‘Whites’. “One dreams of reaching the top, but today I try to do my best for the club, we are in an impressive place like Madrid, which has been doing things well for a long time,” Deck said on UcU Web Radio and addressed the rumors of his move to the NBA.
Deck also sees the rumors as a good thing, showing that he has been doing things good enough: “It would be worse if they didn’t ask about my future. I’m doing things well and people can see a chance for the NBA. It’s good that they wonder.”

Eric Walden: Quin, on being without Donovan for at least a week: “It’s a challenge for us to play without him, and obviously we want to get him back as soon as possible. … Hopefully we can try to improve in some other ways.”
Eric Walden: Asked what he’s looking for with so many guys out, Quin said: “It’s difficult to play the way we normally would, but it puts a premium on ball movement, particularly against the Lakers’ pressure. We’re gonna have to run as much as we can, have some guys be really aggressive.”
