Poz tells how he assigned the role of captain

Gianmarco Pozzecco, speaking with ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport,’ addressed among other things the assignment of the role of captain, admitting a small difficulty and revealing a backstory.

“I wanted Melli to be captain,” the national basketball coach said, “Nic replied that the ranks belong to Gigi Datome, and Gigi himself got a little resentful as well. I took a double rebound from both of them but I’m happy because I understood how much each one cares about the other even while respecting the roles.”

“Datome is a concentrate of positivity inside and out,” added the Poz. “A great soul with whom I feel in great harmony. A glance is enough for us to understand each other on the fly.”
