San Antonio Spurs guard/forward Danny Green was one of the first Spurs players to take the leap to play overseas when he signed with Union Olimpija back in August,
Green had no clue where to find Ljubljana on the map or likely how to spell it, but in a recent interview with Siol.net, Green said he is adapting to his new surroundings.
Green said the experience has been much the same as his moves from high school to college in North Carolina, meeting a new group of friends and getting to know your teammates.
The real challenge is to merge into a new environment and to contribute its share to the greatest possible form.
I'm adapting to Olimpija Ljubljana and happy. Clearly, it is not without problems. A basketball has to be fought. I am satisfied with the current situation.Building the right team chemistry.
Green said he looks forward to the first game, but every game will be special.
While Green has moved from North Carolina to Cleveland, Reno and then San Antonio, moving out of the country presents its own set of challenges.
