Re: Play Ball(finally)!
But. Just this week, BallinEurope contributor David Hein ran an excellent and extensive interview with the former Jazzman on his heinnews.com (part one may be found here; part two is linked below) in which, upon touching on innumerable subjects, Kirilenko comments on his future plans … with slightly different estimates and emphatic feeling.
“I was always saying that I would love to play in the best league in the world. So, yes, in the end of the season I will consider all the offers from the NBA again,” Kirilenko told Hein, but, more significantly, “that does not means I will definitely go.”
Also of note in the heinnews interview is Kirilenko reckoning that “I think I still have three to four years of highest-level basketball in future.” Further, European fans may be slightly disheartened to read that he “was never thinking about slowly finishing career somewhere. As soon as I see I don’t belong to the best in the world I will retire.”
