Leandro Bolmaro: "I’m a baby with a new toy"

Following the official confirmation that he will be a Minnesota Timberwolves player, Leandro bolmaro this Thursday expressed his joy for the new step in his career and said that feels like a “baby with a new toy” after sealing his bond for four seasons with the NBA franchise.

“I’m very happy, enjoying the experience to the fullest. I am a baby with a new toy. I am going to train very happy, I have a very big smile, I have to keep working, which is what brought me here, “said the man from Cordoba, who on Wednesday night was made official as a new basketball player in the franchise.

Bolmaro will be the fourth Argentine player to participate in the next NBA season along with Facundo Campazzo (Denver Nuggets), Luca Vildoza (not yet guaranteed his contract in New York Knicks) and Gabriel Deck (insured in Oklahoma City). Hailing from Barcelona, ​​where he played the last two seasons in the first team, Bolmaro arrived in the United States last week, following his participation in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and a subsequent holiday period.

“I handle it well, I try not to think too much about where I am, because if I start to think about it, maybe I don’t even believe it.. But I know this is thanks to the effort of my career. This is a dream, I am very happy, “explained the player born in Las Varillas -the same town that Fabricio Oberto hails from-, who in Argentina played in the National League for Bahía Basket.

The point guard, who also stood out last season as a guard, did not hide his joy at being part of the elite of world basketball and confessed that if he thinks about it, “he doesn’t” believe it. “I think that last year in Barcelona I made a very big leap in quality thanks to training and work, and I think I improved a lot in defense, I felt looser and more confident”, he stressed. “In the first year I played little, but it was a moment that I took advantage of to train a lot and improve in all defensive and offensive aspects “, Bolmaro analyzed in an interview with 3×3 radio, where He differentiated the basketball of the ACB of Spain from that of the NBA and clarified that he must “improve from the physical” to compete as “equal to equal.”
