So tell me, why the heck would he leave the beautiful city of Barcelona, to come to a small city in US, to earn less money???
If I were him I would really come to US only if to a city as good as Barcelona and to a good team that will give him a prospect of development as a player and with decent coaching...
As far as his potential as a player, do you guys watch a lot of DKV games or you're just basing your opinion on the Olympics?
Play with better players, improve his overall recognition/fame and give himself a chance to make more money in the future?
