Sergio Scariolo Rumors

However, with time, the relationship blossomed. “During the playoffs, he was coming by before every game. He wanted me to sit down with him for 10 minutes and go through every aspect of the upcoming game. So, that was the evolution of our relationship. But at the beginning, it was like, ‘Wow’. Kyle Lowry? Now, I would say he is one of my best buddies there [in the NBA], but at the beginning, it was like, ‘Wow’. Let’s say he’s a guy who, to say the least, in terms of how he wants to show his status in the team. He’s a lovely guy. I love him,” Scariolo continued.
The Italian coach revealed one useful lesson he took away from his NBA experience. “Then, it is coaching without overloading. That’s the main principle in the NBA. It’s not like they never practice there. Of course, you have to be able to coach using different tools and different loads. You can’t kill them by running up and down for two hours between games. You need to find a way to work without body contact while at the same time working on coverages, drills, 3-on-5, 4-on-5, etc. It’s extremely helpful for me in Virtus,” Scariolo concluded.
Australia maintains the 3rd spot and every national team until the 12th position, occupied by the Czech Republic, hasn’t moved since the previous update. Iran enters the top 20. Sergio Scariolo commented on the news with kind words. “It is not exactly a new title and probably cannot be maintained for too long, but it is something so unique, prestigious, and historical that I am tremendously proud of all those who, from U12 to the Absolute, have contributed to it”, he said on Twitter.
For many, this Spanish national team gold medal run was surprising. But Lorenzo Brown had it on his target the first time he committed to Sergio Scariolo’s team. “Yes, that was my first objective right there. And we did it. I faced a lot of criticism for who knows what. But I feel like it’s a language barrier or country… I don’t know what was going on, but at the end of the day, we speak the same language out there on the court. It doesn’t matter what color you’re or where you’re from, we’re all brothers and humans. That speaks for itself right there, winning this gold medal.”
However, his team actually withdrawing its participation from EuroBasket is not being considered. “No, we are not thinking about leaving the tournament. Of course, if we continue like this, then we can’t play basketball,” explained Ataman, “We have talked with other teams, and everyone complains about the situation. Everybody is complaining. I talked with the Montenegro organization, I talked with Sergio Scariolo. Everybody is complaining.”
