After the conquest of the Cup, this title of the ACB League gives the Barça team its first double a decade after the last one (2011).
“We have suffered a lot, it has been a very hard year for all of us due to the pandemic. We have won two titles and reached the other finals, it is something to be proud of. Now it’s time to rest and, above all, to enjoy. I am very good at celebrations. Now everyone goes with their mobile and someone will get something safe “, smiled Sarunas Jasikevicius before the cameras of Movistar +.
“I am very happy for the team, for Pau. It was a shame we didn’t win the Euroleague for him, who did not have it. Check out how he’s playing! Let’s see if he changes his mind, ”said the coach, who does not believe that Barça is starting a new cycle.
“I don’t believe in these things. At Barça, Madrid or CSKA there are no cycles, you always have to win and that is very difficult to do ”, concluded Saras, who was also close to winning the Euroleague –he fell in the final– in his first season at the helm of the Barça bench.
“The most important thing is that we have put Barça where it deserves, at the top,” said Nikola Mirotic, the MVP

The most important thing is that we have put Barça where it deserves, at the top. Next year we will go for more titles, ”said Mirotic.
