“There is nothing. I have no comment to make.”

Speaking at the press conference after the beautiful victory against Bertram Derthona – beaten 79-63, with the last quarter ‘left’ kindly to the guests dppo three absolutely dominated quarters – Ettore Messina was satisfied with the race of his team, which graduated as winter champions.

“A more than good game won from the first minute, playing with determination and more than good defense. We found very good things both inside the area and outside, so balance. Happy to have finished in first place. Everyone was ready, as well as the public, which has supported us since the beginning of the season,” Messina began.

“The direct clash we won against Virtus? I would be telling a lie if I said they were matches like any other. Then to draw conclusions from that would be illusory, however, in Italy we are a competitive team that plays with commitment and personality.”

He could not miss a comment on the rumor of the moment, the one that would have Kemba Walker, the four-time NBA All Star, about to move to Milan after being cut by the Dallas Mavericks: “There is nothing. I don’t have any comment. Maybe they did an interview with him last year and someone published it now. He is a great player who is said to be struggling for physical reasons since last year. In the case, I’m sorry,” the coach cut it short.
