Panathinaikos Head Coach Ric Pitino made some statements in regards to the tomorrow’s game (22/3, 21:45) against Armani Milano for the 28th week of the Euroleague and among others said that the Italian team has the MVP of the season (meaning Mike James) while he stated that the chemistry is the major tool for his team.
For the Armani Milano said that “They play an amazing basketball, the lost in Madrid, but they have the MVP of the season. It’s a great challenge for us, we lost a great chance to win with 10 points yesterday. I showed this morning to all my players the video with all the turnovers which we did in the second half. The victory brings easier a lesson than a defeat.
For the end of the season, he mentioned “It’s like March Madness. One game and you are out. I paid for this reason. To be prepared for an opponent, to work much more and to be focused. This is the happy part. When you are not ready you feel stressed, i love stress, its my best friend in life!
For the improvement of his team he said” My players want to be the best. All the teams have their own weaknesses. Our “weapon” is the amazing chemistry we have. Everybody plays like a fist and we move one. That is waht we are working on”
