So many things have happened to Real Madrid basketball this season that The only thing missing was for him to give his coach a heart attack… Oh, wait! It turns out that even that drama has had to be overcome by this group of players, who have turned the supposed biggest crisis of Pablo Laso’s stage into a double in the Endesa Super Cup and the Endesa League and who came within a span of also winning the Copa del Rey and the Euroleague. Where some saw the end of an era, a very good season has emerged in which the only thing that Real Madrid has escaped is that one morning Tavares got out of bed and suddenly measured 1.70.
Everything else that could happen to him has happened to him: from the covid outbreak that forced the whites to play, and win, CSKA with a rotation full of youth players, to another epidemic of long-term injuries like those of Alocén, Williams -Goss and Randolph’s stunt double, who has no more ligaments left to tear. Barcelona was an ogre with Jasikevicius and Mirotic, but they couldn’t reach that fifth game at the Palau Blaugrana. Barça “died” in the fourth, in a lit WiZink Center where Carlo Ancelotti was attentive, at the foot of the track, in one of the funds, who thought that for a Sunday vacation it was a good plan to go see a huge basketball game.
The Italian coach applauded each basket of his club and raised his eyebrow just like when he directs the games of the soccer boys. His season has been similar to that of the basketball section: at first many saw them as out of the list of favorites to win the Champions League, because the squad was full of veteran players who had reached the end of their useful life. A few comebacks later, Madrid won the fourteenth European Cup, with Benzema aiming for the Ballon d’Or and Vinicius being more forceful in the area than “Torpedo” Müller.
In basketball there was talk of an end to the cycle when Laso’s men went on that losing streak never seen since the Vitorian arrived and a burning locker room and an irreducible situation were painted. Y it turned out that Tavares was Olajuwon and Patrick Ewing at the same time and Rudy was able to dedicate the title to his father’s memory.
