Tidbits from a Ricky interview.




Hello from Barcelona!

Yesterday Ricky did some interviews in Spain and said a few interesting things. Here we go:

He said this is the "most important summer of my career". He wants to raise his game significantly. He talked about getting stronger so he can withstand the full season in good shape. He wants to better his shot selection and %. A curious thing: he wants to work on his "own shot". Like a special shot or something for difficult situations, like Navarro's "bomba" (floater) or Parker's. (I don't know why, but I found this hilarious)

He also said he feels he hasn't proved himself in the NBA yet.

About the team: he didn't sound too dissapointed about Kahn's departure, just that he hopes that Flip continues the current project and doesn't blow things up for a rebuild. He was specially adamant about Adelman's importance.

A final detail: he didn't want to explain his neck tatoo.

Well, it's not much, but it's what I found relevant, many questions were more about the Eurobasket and the other spanish NBA players.

P.S. You'll be missed, S-n-P.
