Jorge Garbajosa, president of the FEB, was full of praise for him. “One player in particular has made an enormous personal effort, of course physically and sportingly, to be here. Personally as a matter of love, affection for basketball in our country, commitment to our team.”

The leader related that “during the process to get here” that began “a long time ago” and that “it has not been easy” they have been able to get to know the personal side of Lorenzo Brown. “It has allowed us to meet a close, caring, ambitious person with a very special love for our basketball and our national team,” he stressed.
