But I know at the end of the day I'm going to have to go back to Mexico and live there for a couple of months to just surround myself and really understand the language,“ he said.

He also acknowledged that being in Mexico will It greatly improved language learning. “It's more difficult here in the United States, people only speak English, I try, that's why I have a tutor, so I'm trying to improve,” he continued.

Regarding his continuity with the Mexican National Team, he assured that representing the Tri basketball team was a decision that she took with her family since together they thought it would be an excellent idea to be able to connect with her roots and her Mexican heritage. “I was very happy to be able to live it and be part of that process, and show the people in Mexico that I am here, and that I want to represent and be part of something bigger. It was incredible. Being able to play against other countries and see their best players against our best players,” he noted.

“For me the NBA is great, but in my eyes the Olympics are a scene of much greater value. I think it's the biggest scene you can be in. I hope we can get there, but just being a part of it is truly indescribable, putting on that jersey and representing a country, it's truly indescribable,' added the UCLA standout.
