The thing is, Los Angeles and New York are the most famous american cities in the world... So it's no wonder he said he wanted California and now saying New York.

Besides, about his shooting, from what I've seen from DKV Joventut games, I'd say it's doesn't become an issue of his game, it's just that it's not his forte. You don't expect to get a shooter when having him in the team, but he has a lot of other qualities that make him a good prospect.

I know he's Euro. He's Spaniard. He's a Spanish speaker. He's not Latino but him being a Spanish speaker and if he plays for any California or NY team. He'll have a huge Latino fan base. Like Pau Gasol.
