It’s been many years since the 10-year-old Scola was working as a ball boy for the 1990 FIBA World Championship in Buenos Aires and made sure to get a picture with his hero, the Brazilian star setting the international stage on fire. The photograph was nearly lost, as Scola accidentally destroyed all but three photos on his camera when he pulled the film reel out too quickly. Luckily, his picture with Schmidt survived, but when Scola sees Schmidt again when he’s honored at Monday’s Nets-Grizzlies game, it might be time to get one more.
Budinger talked about what he hopes to bring in the game of his new team, the discussions he held with Ricky Rubio before arriving in Spain and how Luis Scola’s previous presence in Baskonia inspires him. “Baskonia is high level organization. Luis Scola (played for Baskonia from 2000 to 2007) was a mentor to me and it excites me to follow in his footsteps. I also talked with Ricky Rubio who told me the differences between NBA and Europe especially how the game is more physical here.”
