On the morning following the trophy game of the WE'RE BACK PRESEASON TOUR in Valencia, Spain, LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne made the most of its trip and held its Media Day. It was a different one because it took place in L'Alqueria, the Valencia Basket practice facility, in order for the French team to have it completed in a timely manner.
There were plenty of new faces on the team, like Norris Cole, William Howard, Kevarrius Hayes, Allerik Freeman and, of course, new head coach T.J. Parker. Together with them, familiar faces for ASVEL fans like Charles Kahudi, David Lighty, Ismael Bako and Antoine Diot, who was back for a visit to the city he used to play in, went through all the Media Day stations with smiles on their faces for official pictures, TV graphics and interviews.
The real deal is just around the corner, as soon as October 1, when ASVEL returns to Valencia to open the season. Most Media Days have already taken place, which means that the ball will be bouncing into the EuroLeague Regular Season in no time!
