In an interview with FIBA, Marc Gasol talked about his successful run with the Spanish national team as well as the upcoming World Cup.

“I’m closer to the end of my international career than to the beginning, but the motivation is the same that I’ve had since I started playing with the national team. I enjoy the moments with the guys, from the practice to the camaraderie and the competition.

I want to help the national team try to have good runs and win more medals and titles before I retire from international duty. I take it step by step and my first focus after the NBA season is on the next FIBA World Cup,” the center of the Toronto Raptors said.

Spain will try to dethrone Team USA and become world champions for the first time since 2006.
