Alessandro Gentile and Malik Hairston met the media in the official press conference after the Boston game. Here briefly there statements, you can also listen in the video.
Gentile: “I’ve been practicing with the team for two weeks, every day is better. Playing against an athletic and physical team like Boston will help me a lot, and I think it’ll help the entire team as well. They’re a very physical and athletic team, a talented one too. To me it was a new kind of experience, we played in an atmosphere with no tension and so probably you cannot judge any team after a game like that. But to me playing against those players is an honor i hope will help me in the future. It’s every player dream to go to the NBA one day. Competing against these players is helpful to understand what I need to do and improve to get to that level”
Hairston: “We competed against the best players and the best athlets in the world. Boston is also one of the best teams in the NBA. It was a great experience for me after a couple years I spent in the NBA. Olimpia? We need to understand how to compete per 40 minutes avery night with the right amount of energy. We need to work hard every day”.
