The Spanish national team has been in the news recently with Lorenzo Brown becoming the main point guard on the roster.

One of the NT additions from the NBA, Willy Hernangomez, brushed off the criticism during his time with local journalists after a practice.

"Who does not want to play with the Spanish team? Whether nationalized or not, everyone wants to be part of the family," he said. "The commitment he has wanted to have is appreciated, giving up his vacations with his family to come and play for the Spanish team."

FIBA released a country power ranking for the EuroBasket 2022 several days ago where Spain came in sixth place. Having lost many of the players that made the national team great throughout the last decade, Spain is not as strong as basketball fans are probably accustomed to seeing.

However, Hernangomez was certain that it doesn't mean much.

"We are not afraid of anyone, we are a unit and we have worldwide respect for what we have achieved and what we continue to show," the player told the media. "The noise from outside is always going to exist, some years we are favorites, and others we are not in the pools, as happened in the World Cup."
