Jaycee Carroll played his 700th game for Real Madrid last Sunday against Valencia Basket. Upon his return to training, the American received a commemorative jersey to mark a milestone that only Reyes and Llull have achieved in the history of the basketball team. Carroll, who was photographed with the rest of his teammates and the coaching staff at the Real Madrid City pavilion, had this to say: "When I joined Real Madrid I honestly didn't know if I was going to play one season or ten. It's a pleasure and a delight to be here all these years and to reach this number. I'm very happy".

"I have shared the court with Reyes and Llull during all these years. They've had incredible careers and are legends. To be able to reach a milestone shared with two players like that is a joy for me. We've won lots of titles and have had very successful years and we still have that desire and that hunger to keep on winning".

The fans
"We can't see each other in person sadly due to the situation but we can see on social media the support they have for us . I've always given my all for them out on the court and we're very grateful for the support they give us".

We're going all out for the league, we're really looking forward to the playoffs.

"I want to be remembered in the future as a player who has given his best, who fought, who made mistakes and who always tried to improve, always defending the badge. I've always tried to do my best".

The next goal
"We're going all out for the league. We have to win at least one of the last two games in the Regular Season to finish first, and then we're looking forward to the playoffs. I'm feeling pretty good. We've done some very good things this season. We've had problems and playing without fans at home is another challenge that we've handled well. We're looking forward to finishing the Regular Season strong".

The foreigner to have played the most games for Real Madrid
Carroll is by far the foreign player who has played the most games for Real Madrid. In 10 seasons he has played 700 games and is ahead of Taylor (394), Bullock (364), Ayón (340) and Hervelle (310).
