« For me it’s France, we are always complaining »
Present in interview for SEEKER, Tony Parker has also given a layer on this subject. When discussing the non-selection in the draft of Nadir Hifi, TP spoke about the mentality of the French. “I like Nadir Hifi because he has balls. It can be perceived as arrogance, and everyone tells me that since I arrived here. It reminds me of me. If he was American no one would have said anything, people would have taken that for confidence, it would have been great, but since he’s European it’s arrogance. That’s France. For me it’s France, we are always complaining »says the former leader in comments relayed by Let’s talk basketball.
« We should be inspired by the best in the United States »
« We should be inspired by the best in the United States, they all have great confidence in themselves »asserts Tony Parker. “We should take inspiration from the culture of winning that the Spaniards have. That’s why I love this country and why I try to recruit Spaniards. There are reasons these people always win. When you have a kid like that, talented, you shouldn’t try to put him down and want to change him. ».
