I really can’t think of going to another place. I often hear rumors about my future and every time you feel this kind of indiscretion, you ask yourself questions. But as far as I’m concerned, I love being here right now and I’m one of those people who would love to stay in one team for the whole career. If I think of Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, Dirk Nowitzki and their history with their teams… it’s a great thing. But you never know what you reserve the future and what companies think of you after a long time you’re on the roster, but I love being where I am and would love to see my jersey retreating here. ”
