If you got over an hour to spare and are a huge San Antonio Spurs fan, then this video is right for you.
During the offseason, the Spurs announced the hiring of one of the best European coaches — Ettore Messina. He is four-time Euroleague Champion and a two-time Euroleague Coach of the Year, and has over 25 years of coaching experience. In addition, he served as a coaching consultant for the Los Angeles Lakers in 2011-12 season.
To continue bringing you a better understanding of the new San Antonio coach, we here at Project Spurs, have brought you video where Messina speaks on his coaching philosophy, but now we bring you video of him putting that philosophy in action on the court.
After his stint with the Lakers, Ettore returned overseas to teach young basketball players the ins and outs of L.A.’s offense, and what he learned about the NBA style.
From teaching the Lakers’ post-game to L.A.’s defensive schemes, check out Ettore doing what he does best – coaching!
