First champioship is always special and this one has SPECIAL written all over it. Why? Well because in September we were expected to breeze through the Estonian League, make the next round in EuroCup and make the VTB playoffs. That was our goal. After big upsets in the EuroCup and VTB we managed to pull together, and, even though we finished 2nd, we managed to go 10-0 in the Playoffs!
Of course what makes the championship even more special is the fact that I was able to have a great series and win Finals MVP. This success means that my work process has been right and I have to continue with it and even improve it in order to raise my game to the next level. Overall it was a great year, I received lots of individual honors but what matters the most is that I was able to learn a lot from this experience and I was able to play and win in my first Finals as a professional player.
Lastly I would like to thank all my family, friends and fans that have supported me unconditionally, I want to thank Estonia for a warm welcome and for making me and my family feel like at home. This year and what I have accomplished only motivates me for more! Looking forward to getting ready for next season and for a successful summer with the Romanian National Team.
