Gal Mekel: Meet the Israel National Basketball Team

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.” 

Goals:
“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.”
