Alvaro gave us the heads up that Kosta Perovic, who was waived by his NBA club the Golden State Warriors last week, will be introduced to the Pamesa Valencia roster on Wednesday.
Now it is not more than a side note for us that he left the NBA to play in Europe: Perovic is a solid player, but has not yet developed into a big star.
What really caught our eye is the way Perovic will be presented.
Kosta Perovic will be introduced to – well, to who?! – since this will happen onboard a cruise ship named MSC Simfonia. Sure. Valencia is right on the Spanish east coast, but why would you introduce a new player on a cruise ship? I wonder if the local media has booked the trip to cover this event as well.
Just by looking at the article on Pamesa’s website, you can see that the real news is not Perovic, but the MSC Simfonia – Perovic gets mentioned once in the beginning, with the rest of the article all about that cruise ship.
