Train with the greats

Ettore Messina

He has had an amazing career, having coached teams ranging from Benetton Treviso to the legendary Los Angeles Lakers. Born in 1959, Ettore Messina is one of the most prominent coaches of all time and considered one of the best in the field. His highly successful debut in the Italian championship was followed in 2005 by his “first” move to CSKA in Moscow then to Spain to coach Real Madrid, and finally the move to Los Angeles to coach the legendary Lakers, an experience which prompted him to write the book “Basketball, men and other planets”. In 2012 Ettore Messina returned to Moscow. Today he leads the Italian national team and is assistant coach to the San Antonio Spurs.
