Scariolo ‘trolls’ Yabusele: “If they throw you to the ground they give you the prize…”

Guerschon Yabusele and Sergio Scariolo starred in one of the actions of the match between Virtus and Real Madrid, on matchday 30 of the 2022-23 Euroleague (79-96 for the whites). During the third quarter, the Real Madrid player went for a divided ball and collided with the Italian coach, who went to the ground. It was a humorous situation and they both quickly downplayed it, with the power forward helping the coach to get up and the latter flashing a smile. Something merely curious that has gone viral… and to which the Spain coach has also responded.

The reason? Yabusele has been awarded the MVP of day 30 of the Euroleaguethe sixth award won by a Real Madrid player this season. And Scariolo has trolled with great sympathy the decision of the highest continental competition, who awarded the prize to a Yabusele who finished the game against Virtus with 24 points and 6 rebounds, for a PIR of 30. A sublime performance in an important victory for Real Madrid, which continues to stalk the Euroleague lead, held by Olympiacos, with the same record as the whites (21-9).

Shame on me if EuroLeague players find out that knocking me off the bench wins them MVP of the week… Congratulations Guerschon Yabusele, fantastic game! Looks like I didn’t hurt you that much…”, Scariolo said in a humorous tweet that has quickly gone viral. One more example of the manor and class of the Italian coach, who also did not hesitate to praise the performance of Mario Hezonjawho finished said match with 26 points and 8 of 11 in triples.
