Berlin (AP). “I don’t want to just get there, come hell or high water. I have rejected such options more than once,” the 29-year-old Berliner told rbb. “Up until now, the priority of my career has always been to develop and get better, and that will continue to be the case.” The best basketball league in the world has always been his dream and goal, but “it has to fit and the situation has to be right.”
Lo had won a bronze medal with Germany at the European Basketball Championships in the summer and had strong performances. NBA pro and national team teammate Dennis Schröder has described him as the next German player to make the big leagues.
“He’s not thinking about the NBA right now, though,” Lo said. “I’m trying to have the best season with Alba and continue to improve personally. You never know where the road is going to take me,” said the guard, who is currently sidelined with an ankle injury. “I’m getting better every day, but I’m still not in shape. I feel like I need a little more.”
With the Berliners, he also believes that it is possible to reach the Euroleague playoffs this year. “If I didn’t do that, I wouldn’t have a reason to give my all every day. It’s every team’s goal to improve. We have a good environment here to build on last season’s results,” he said.
