"This club has a lot of history and prestige", explained the new Real Madrid pivot.
Alex Tyus held his first interview as a new Whites' player with the club's official media and expressed his excitement about this new period: "Joining Real Madrid means a lot to me. This club has a lot of history and prestige and it's very exciting to play for such a big institution like this. Real Madrid is always present in the Final Four and competing for the title as well as in the ACB. The most important thing is to win and to play as a team. I'm really excited about being here".
"I hope I can help as much as possible bringing my strengths to the team and hopefully we can achieve as much as possible. My greatest attribute is my ability to make decisive moves that can change games: a big dunk, blocks... actions that help the team".
Inner game with Tavares
"I've got a lot of respect for Tavares. He's an incredible player. I've had the chance to play with other great pivots and that’s taught me a lot and been a lot of fun".
Team analysis
"I love the way Real Madrid plays and the way they all share the ball. They play with a lot of intelligence and because of that you always have a chance of winning. There are some very talented players in the team and that's why they always compete for the titles".
Expectations for the season
"Winning titles is the most important goal but I also want to improve every day. I want to continue learning from my teammates, settle in as soon as possible and learn the systems. If we work hard every day, the rest will fall into place".
Personal challenge
"This season is a bit strange. I didn't start playing until November. It's been different getting into shape this year because I haven't played since March. Everything has been different, but I am looking forward to continuing to improve".
Message to the Real Madrid fans
"I want them to know that I'm going to play as hard as I can and try to help the team to win".
