«I think success is getting up to do all what you can do.»

How do you define success?
I think success is getting up to do all what you can do. This should not be confused with the win or win. You can get  success and not win. Currently too confused. In China, for example, they don't understand the success if you aren't tied to victory. But my idea of ​​success is very different.

Success is based on service to us. The sum of the egos makes a very strong group.


What inspires you? And where do you find your inspiration?
I find inspiration everywhere. In day to day. Learning from others to apply the best of each for you. Collect information, which serves you discriminate and use.


Could you tell us about your success? What is the short-story of your success?
Little story of my success is based on two classical concepts: work and perseverance. Believe in what you are doing and listen much to the player. That gives you step in and see what you think the player and his commitment because you get to meet their needs. We are doing what we all want. I've been training since 1986. In 2001 I started as a professional in LF2 and singned for Salamanca arriving after being runners-up in Thailand U19 World. We won the Supercopa to Ros in their field, the League also in their field and remove them after the Euroleague semifinals and a Russian team in the final. The following year the European Super Cup and the Spanish Queen Cup. Also won the U20 EuroBasket in Serbia and my agent will get offers from Russia and China. I thought he was joking when they were with the senior team in the pre-European and it was a challenge and a unique experience. So I jumped into the adventure. After that won the gold medal with the senior team in EururoBasket and a new League in China...
