Gal Mekel has certainly played in a number of countries but he will definitely be remembered for being Israel’s second NBA player when he donned the Dallas Mavericks uniform. The guard is coming off a year and half with Maccabi Tel Aviv and will play for Gran Canaria next season. He’s thrilled to be back representing Israel.
A flattering honor:
“It’s very flattering and I’m very proud that I will be able to be a member of this National Team. It’s one of the biggest honors that a player can ever receive.”
“We want to do something special and to do something big together. It’s important that we prepare properly this month for the competition.”
Importance of having the Eurobasket in Israel:
“It’s very important that it’s here as it’s something that happens once a career.”
