His professionalism and outstanding charisma keep him as an all-time fan favorite in Milano.
WHAT THEY SAY...
""Being here is a fantastic honour. When I heard about it, I jumped off my chair because I remember my time in Itraly as fantastic. As a matter of fact, I loved my Italian stay probably better than my NBA stay for 14 years. It is a great honour for me and I am proud to be here. I remember the two European Cup championship games against Maccabi Tel Aviv, they were very tough games. The evolution of European basketball has been tremendous since I last played here. For instance, when you look at the last Olympics, the Italian national team got the silver medal. A lot of European players make major contribution in the NBA these days, too."
