After 29 games in the best league in the world, and after delivering a good game tonight (Tuesday through Wednesday) and finishing in double digits against Memphis,

Danny Abdia

spoke tonight (Wednesday) with the media.

"In the first half of the season I learned a lot of new things," the Washington rookie began.

"I played against good players and became a better player. I have not talked to Yannis Sapropoulos for a long time, he has a lot on his mind at Maccabi Tel Aviv at the moment and I did not want to disturb him.

I follow them from a distance and we are in an excellent relationship. "

The Israeli continued:

"It's a situation similar to my first season in the Euroleague. I may be older, but it's completely different because I'm a rookie in the NBA. I didn't play much in the first season in the Euroleague, and there were a lot of things to get used to. I think this season I practice pretty fast. Work to get better. "

On the stars who play with him:

"Russell Westbrook is always ready to play, I see it from breakfast when we eat. Both he and Bradley Bill are the leaders of the team and feel them."

A moment he remembers from the season:

"In a league with so many stars it's hard to say one moment I remember him especially. Every moment I'm here and every place we play and I enjoy every moment. Just fun. When I got to the hotel after a three against the Lakers in the last quarter, I suddenly thought where I was Two years ago and where I am today. "

Game style:

"I do not come to prove anything to anyone. I will be Danny, no matter if I get one or twenty balls. I have my style of play and I like to give and look for my teammates. That is my character. There will be games I will get more balls and there will be such "Less, but that's the way it is. I want to be in a winning team."

The offense problem:

"Sometimes it's frustrating, you try to keep and earn your minutes on the pitch, help the team, and then you are whistled for offenses. It's part of being a rookie, it's part of the experience and I hope in a few more years I laugh at it. I'm waiting for the referees to 'give' me Those whistles and there will be another rookie who will be frustrated by that. "

Keep LeBron:

"When I played in the Euroleague, keeping Rudy Fernandez was something respectable. Now I'm in the NBA and have to deal with new things like keeping LeBron. I was not afraid, I enjoyed keeping him, seeing one of the greatest players of all. A boy from Herzliya keeping LeBron C. James - that's crazy. "

Attempting to drown on Taco Pool:

"I wanted something to inspire the country, to have a beautiful moment. I saw him approaching me and I was sure I would succeed. Hopefully there will be more opportunities like this."
