CelticsSpa has a great interview with the Celtics new center Vitor Faverani. Faverani, whose nickname, El Hombre Indestructible, has to be one of the best in the league, is unknown to most Celtics fans and so this interview is a great way for Celtics fans to get to know him a little. You can check out the whole interview here: Vitor Faverani talks to CelticsSpa. Below are just a couple of excerpts from the interview. He sounds like a good guy. Hopefully he can make a difference for the Celtics. CS: How were the workouts with the Celtics and what were your impressions while you were doing them? VF: Of all the teams I worked out for, Boston was the one that convinced me more of the possibility of playing there. And it was because of the way they treated me. I was used of the way people treat you in Spain: they talk to you, they are kind, they are smiling, they make jokes all the time...and in Boston I felt home right away. They greeted me and from the first moment there is someone in the organization, Austin, that talked to me in Spanish. We were talking for a while and then they treated me as if I was already playing for them. We did the medical check up and I started thinking that it wasn't normal that they were treating me so well. It was unbelievable. ' As for the workout itself it was great. It was very unstressful. There were several coaches watching me practice, but there wasn't any pressure at all in it. I didn't feel like I had to score the ball because they treated me so well that it was impossible to miss a shot, you see? I was joking all the time with one of the coaches about this and they made me feel comfortable and at home all the time. CS: With which player are you more excited to play with next season? VF: To me, the player that I would have loved to play with is Kevin Garnett. His physical abilities and everything what he could do on the court: his shooting, ball handling, jump, playing face to the basket...everything. He is an amazing player. I didn't know that he was about to be traded to Brooklyn when I was working out for the Celtics. I really would have loved to play with him. I wanted to greet him and be with such a legendary player for the Celtics. As for the players that are in the current roster, the one I am trully excited to play with is Rajon Rondo. I can't wait to play with him and build some chemistry with him on the court and play together. [Discuss on CG Forums!]
