Default Messina's interview

Sport Express (Russia), April 21st

- he will talk with CSKA management about his situation (prior, during and after Final 4)
- he wasn't contacted by Nets. he thinks these rumors were triggered by the fact he is Kiki's friend
- he coached Denver in summer league and Carmelo in his first pro game (Kiki was Nuggets GM at that time and invited Messina)
- he will not accept assistant position
- he believes that European coach can be successful in the NBA
- he thinks that new coach cannot say to his players: forget everything, we are starting from scratch, coach has to use all positives that already existed
- after all the success in Europe, it won't be easy for him to coach a mediocre team. but NBA is a challenge and he is ready for adjustments
- he does not think, he'll be called by Toronto. why? because Gerardini is his friend! (is it mafia's logic?)

I'm not sure what that is supposed to mean. Can you elaborate on that?

I didn't get it too. Messina doesn't believe he will be called by the Raptors, because Gerardini is his friend ...

Same here. Woudln't it e that they aren't friends and that's why he won't call him or because theyare great friends so Gheradini won't have to call him

probably because maurizio can't advise bryan on messina since there's a conflict of interest.

I'm guess what was meant was, he isn't gonna get called just because he's his friend.

Either that or it was a typo and what they meant to say was he thinks he will (not won't) get a call from Toronto.

anyway it's BC's call not Gerardini's

and Messina already has Raptors jersey in his wardrobe (for 2 years now)

Maybe he means that since Gerardini is his friend, he would never have the audacity to call him and ask him to coach such a piss poor squad.

Actually, he would be the one getting called. He wouldn't be calling an organaization for a job, would be desperate.

Perhaps hes saying that Gherardiny would tell him about such plans and he hasn't yet.
