Coach Rabolini's corner – EA7 Emporio Armani Milan

One of Bertram Derthona's most anticipated matches of the season is approaching, against EA7 Emporio Armani Milano in the match scheduled at PalaEnergica Paolo Ferraris on Sunday 22 October at 18.15pm.

The assistant coach presented the challenge Edoardo Rabbolini:

“It is certainly intriguing to outline Milan's roster, which boasts a fleet of players that needs no introduction. This is a very high level team that carried out a partial but significant renewal within its roster in the summer.

Milan has depth and the ability to change skin during the match, thanks to the technical and physical flexibility of its performers. Starting from the wingers, the players confirmed compared to last season are Kevin Pangos, game builder and scorer from pick'n'roll situations, Stafano Tonut, great protagonist at the World Cup and skilled in attacking the rim with his physicality, Devon Hall , which guarantees physicality and extemporaneous plays. They are joined by Shavon Shields, a great all-round scorer, capable of scoring in many different ways, and Billy Baron – back from injury – a great protagonist of last year's Scudetto.

The new faces in the department are Maodo Lo, coming from Alba Berlin and fresh winner of the World Cup with Germany, Diego Flaccadori, who has stood out for the great growth he has had in recent years in Trento, and Giordano Bortolani, nursery of the Milanese product and very talented player.

Among the wings, Olimpia has a player of physicality, experience and two-dimensionality. The athletes confirmed compared to last season are: captain Nicolò melli, precious balancer of the red and white game, Giampaolo Ricci, one of the former players of the match, able to cover both wing slots and Johannes Voigtmann, also a winner of the World Cup and gifted great skills in perimeter shooting. To complete the department, certainly not least, we find Nikola Mirotic, an offensive champion who can also cover the role of '3', who puts opposing defenses in difficulty with his skills both near and far from the basket. Guglielmo Caruso also arrived in the wing department in the summer, a young player with great prospects.

The big men who complete the front court are: Kyle Hines, the recent record holder for appearances in the EuroLeague (393), who is an added playmaker, the center Alex Poythress, with amazing athletic skills, and the Frenchman Ismael Kamagate, who has great size and a interesting technical potential”.
