After being back home, I put together a little Video review of the Trip to Spain which you can find here.The trip started with a visit of Malaga and to explain what the Unicaja team is about, EL.tv made this nice introduction to the Andalusian rules.
The game we saw there between Unicaja and Lietuvos Rytas was close and has been decided by a last second effort by Carlos Cabezas. Unfortunately, the official highlights of the game don’t show that play.[youtube 6TQ02EwajU0 nolink]
Marc Salyers had an Interview with EL.TV where he explains a bit his life in the quite city of France and talks a bit about his daily life. At one moment, he makes also this stunning comment about parties in his home town: The nightlife is a bit different to what I am used too.
I won’t go any further in speculations but as we all know, Salyers is one of the most known Womanizers of European basketball. And this is Fernanda Lessa who those who want to know.
So the match up in Madrid between Real and Chorale Roanne was somehow a David vs. Goliath issue, or like Mission impossible.
And the result at the end with a huge Real victory was somehow logical. According to euroleague.net, the French coach Jean-Denys Choulet sounded not so happy about this loss. But when you check the original text in French in the video I took during the press conference, there was quite a harsher message coming over.
I am tired of getting beaten up in Euroleague. It is the second time. It is the second time but I think that this time, there were possibilities to do a lot better. In the first quarter, Real Madrid was not playing very good, and we weren’t good either but we were in the game. But unfortunately, there is one “clown” that is doing three stupidities in a row, like we are used to, and puts us in serious trouble. And when we are at minus 6 or minus 8 in the first quarter against a team like that, we can not come back. When we play serious, and avoid to do stupid things, I think we can stay in the game and you don’t know what can happen. But I am unhappy, very unhappy with our first quarter, the rest… the game was done. I am very unhappy to show such a bad image of our team, I am very unhappy with the collective effort we did tonight, but I am also very unhappy again that certain players, who have important salary expectations, play shit and show such a bad playing level tonight. And this is making me crazy…
So up to you to guess who he was talking about.
