It’s not every day that a sportsman who plays in an Italian league gets a like from a global star. At the end of each month, the Italian Basketball League proposes a range of names among the best players of the A2 to elect the Mvp (Most Valuable Player) of the month.
The Benacqusita Latina guard Mike Lewis II, by virtue of the three victories achieved by the pontini where he averaged over 20 points, entered the nomination with three other colleagues. Among the many votes that arrived, one was that of Jyson Tatum, first-rate star in the NBA with the Boston Celtic shirt, currently first in the East in the NBA, cin tatum nominated for the role of Mvp of the season. In short, it is as if in football Cristiano Ronaldo or Leo Messi were to life a player from Latina Calcio. All true, it’s not a fake and the explanation is simple: the two, both born in 1998, are great friends and former teammates in their High School days when, from 2012 to 2016, they attended Chaminade College Prep School together in the state of Missouri.
