Jaime Pradilla: “The important thing is that we are improving, we are going at the top”


The power forward of the Spanish team Jaime Pradilla explained the importance of the last friendlies against Slovenia and the United States, where they competed “to the fullest”, and the feeling of “improving” ahead of the World Cup that begins in 10 days, with two last tests this week in Granada.

“They are two slightly different teams. We have drawn good conclusions in both games. We have tried to give our best and with good conclusions from the two games,” he said on Tuesday in statements to the media of the Spanish Basketball Federation (FEB), collected by Europa Press.

The Valencia Basket player highlighted the importance of the FEB Centenary Tournament last week in Malaga to increase the demand and see the improvement in the current world champion’s set-up. “One of the keys to this team is that it never gives up, that we go all the way to the end and it was one of the objectives, that these two games get the most out of both of us to be able to see how we get to the World Cup,” he said. .

On the other hand, Pradilla referred to Canada, the first rival on Thursday of a tournament in Granada where they will meet the Dominican Republic on Saturday. “It’s a very good team, very similar to the United States, with other details that must be added to them,” he said.

“It’s going to be a very difficult game. The important thing we have to take away from that game is not victory or defeat, but rather that we are improving and what we are doing as a group. It is going to help us for the World Cup,” he concluded.
