Neemias Queta took stock of this beginning of the season in the NBA where he made history by becoming the first Portuguese player to play in the main basketball league in the world.
“If I had been told four or five years ago that I would do this, I would not have believed it. It gives another joy and even more desire to continue working to be able to evolve and reach a different level”, said the Sacramentos Kings post in reference to the victory over the LA Lakers, without hiding the satisfaction of “sharing the field with LeBron James” : «It is something unimaginable!»
Having fulfilled his dream of playing in the NBA, Neemias now focuses on other goals: «One of my goals was to get to the first team and have a few minutes on the field. I think I’ve achieved that and I’m going to move on to other goals.”
One of these goals is to play the All-Star and the campaigns on social networks to encourage the vote for Nehemiah make him sensitive: «It will stay in memory. I like the idea of people voting for me, but I’m increasingly focused on helping the team win because it also makes it easier for a teammate to make the All-Star.”
Nehemiah also revealed that he has “learned a lot from all the posts in the team” and received a lot of support from coach Alvin Gentry who has “encouraged” him and conveyed “a lot of confidence” and asked him to “continue to work because the opportunity will come”.
