Ettore Messina Rumors

Spurs acting coach Ettore Messina tried at first to cloak candor, but he couldn’t resist when asked what it meant to coach Ginobili in the playoffs. “I cannot lie to you,” said Messina, who filled in for Gregg Popovich for the second consecutive game as the Spurs coach grieves the death of his wife Erin. “Even if it’s awful, because nobody would like to be in this situation for obvious reasons. At the same time, there is a little part of that that moves me to be there with Manu in these playoff games. Really, that’s something that pushes you to try to be the best possible helper for him and the team, and don’t mess up anything; just help him to have a great game.”
