Upon learning of his appointment, Kalinic pointed out that “it means a lot to me, it is a great honor. I have played the Euroleague in seven seasons and had never received it. After a difficult streak we have been able to turn things around, we have found concentration and motivation and we also had extra time to rest and train after our elimination in the Copa del Rey. We have played well in recent games and this recognition means a lot to me. It's nice to receive awards like this, but it won't be worth anything if we can't find our place in the top eight, which has been our goal since the beginning of the season. "
