Congratulations to Erazem Lorbek as he as named to the 2011-12 All-ACB team for the second time in his career.
Lorbek averaged 11.6 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.7 assists which were enough to have his peers, media and coaches to vote him to the team.
"I am proud to be named to the team, because there are many good players in this league that could also have been named. I am very happy to have been chosen and I thank everyone who voted for me."
"It's very difficult to achieve this, but I think we should highlight the work of the whole team, this season for getting a lot of wins and for finishing first in the league during the regular season."
"This gives me strength to continue, because it means I've done a good job. Now I hope I can keep this pace."
Lorbek (whose rights were acquired by the San Antonio Spurs via a 2011 draft day trade with the Pacers) might be interested in coming to the NBA this summer. Recently, it was reported that Lorbek is coming to the Spurs this summer, however, Lorbek has yet to say anything public about his future plans whether it be in San Antonio or overseas.
I really don't believe that lorbek will fit in the spurs system. His defense is average at best. He shoots the ball but there are many shooters in the lineup. What the spurs is looking for is someone who takes care of the interior.
In case if anyone here didn't know. former Spurs players Reggie Geary has won coach of the year award in Japan.
