Marco Belinelli: Here are the best of those best — the five best European guys I ever competed against. Like a lot of European players around my age, I got to watch Dirk as a teenager before he became a huge NBA sensation. He was considered an unknown when he got picked in the NBA draft, but we all knew who he was and what he could do. So, when someone asks me this question, about the best European players I’ve ever played against, Dirk is the first person I think of.
Marco Belinelli: One time, I can’t remember who I was guarding, but it was a player from the deep bench who no one expected to get in. We were winning the game, and my man went into the corner and hit a corner three. “Marco,” shouted Manu. I knew I did something wrong, but I could not have told you what. “Don’t you know that guy has a corner three? Close out!” He knows everything about everyone, even guys he knows he has no chance of facing. That’s who he is. That’s Manu. How is he still in the league, you wonder? It’s because he’s still like that.
Marco Belinelli will be free agent after this season. The Italian guard is playing with the Atlanta Hawks and is averaging 12 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game shooting with 40% from long range. Marco Belinelli spoke with Massimo Lopes Pegna of La Gazzetta dello Sport. “My goal is to sign a new two or three year contract this summer” Belinelli. “I am giving it all on the court for the Hawks” the guard said. “Europe? It is an hypothesis that I will start considering in the future. It would be a normal epilogue for my career because there is always a bit of homesickness. But I love America: here I have realized my dream and I work well here.
