After winning the pregame with his team, Leon Draisaitl, who was named Most Valuable Player of 2020, is more than ready to rock the upcoming season starting with the opener on October 13.

“Individual awards are always great. You know, they show you that your hard work has paid off. But I’m in a team sport, right? So winning the ultimate trophy as a team is more important in the end.

With the “Only See Great” campaign, PUMA explores the career paths of its Brand Ambassadors, as they talk about their own path to greatness, listen to their hearts, and find a vision no one else can see.

After reaching the semi-finals with his team last season, Leon is now aiming for the final: “I hope we can take the next step next season. It was a great race, obviously when you get to that point you want to win. But we met a team that was better than us. But I hope next season we will be that team.

Despite a serious injury, Draisaitl struggled in the final games of the season. He had to change his mind, but his motivation is stronger than ever, he said: “Greatness is consistency. So, I’m preparing for next season like I do for any other season and for me it’s important to start all over again. You know, show people that I’m capable of being at the top of my game every year every night,” Leon says.

The idea for PUMA’s “Only See Great” campaign was inspired by cultural icon, entrepreneur and philanthropist Shawn “JAY-Z” Carter who first said, “I only see good. I am blind impaired. I see no compromise. We must always strive to do something big, something that will last.
