Default Re: Gal Mekel hopes to break into the Mavericks rotation

Dallas Mavericks point guard Gal Mekel recently joined Kevin Arnovitz on True Hoop TV. Here are some highlights from the interview:

On what he needs to improve on to make a difference in Dallas:

ďWe made the huge journey, but the real work starts now of improving myself and putting my footprint in this league. The transition from the European game to the NBA game is first of all, physicality. Itís a different speed and power. I used to play a lot of pick and rolls in reading situations, which is great for this league with this league for this spacing. I feel I can bring my game even in a better way with this spacing. I need to get used to the 3-point line, which is a little bit further, and work on my 3-point shot. Thatís about it. Basketball is basketball. Itís just a new place. Every time you come to a new place, you need to adjust and learn the system, the players and the atmosphere and thatís what Iím going to do.Ē
