here is finally my translation :

for you, which are the difference between european baskball and the NBA ?

Quels sont pour toi les grandes différences entre le basket européen et le basket américain? How do you explain that Europeans have increasingly better integration in the NBA?

NO difference. still 2 buckets, a ball and 5-on-5. It's the same game. In the past, europeans were not body-ready. In recent years, europeans came a more body-ready.
They come in the NBA and are ready to play right away.
At the moment during the PLayoffs, which team do you see champion ?

For what i see, San Antoinio and Oklahoma are above in the West.
In the East, more complicate.
No one can say whom will be in the finals. Indiana can create THE surprise.
I support my french teammate and bet a finale San Antonio-Boston.
Spurs win 4-2
Would you stay in Portland next season ?

I'm a Retricitive free agent the 1st july. I will test the matket. I own to myself to see what's out there.
If an offer has some interest for me, i will take it under consideration.
If i find nothing, i can stay in portland.

I'm ready to stay in portland. IF they match any offer. They gave me my first opportunity, the fans are great and i love Portland. i can do worst.
I don't want a big contract to be on the bench.
Would you prefer to be a franchise player with a mid-league team or bad-team or would you consider or being the second-third or fourth option with a contender ?

2 possibilities :
1. being a starter with a team to compete for the championship.
2. Being the big star on a bad team and get this team to the next level.
What are your goal for next season (stats) ?

I have four.
More game time, more than 30 minutes
50% FGs, 42% 3P and 88% FT

and more win, it's what matter the most at the end of the season.

But if i don't have a 20ppg season, but if i have 3 titles, i would be fine
