Jasikevicius and Gasol are unable to make history

Special envoy to CologneThere are good coaches and players who make a difference, but there are few professionals who are successful on both the bench and the floor. Sarunas Jasikevicius was one step away from becoming the fourth champion to lift a Euroleague as a player and as a coach yesterday. Lolo Sainz, Svetislav Pesic and Armenak Alachachian are the only precedents for a feat that will have to wait. The Lithuanian has managed to get the Barça team to play in the four finals of the tournaments that have been held so far this season: the Catalan League, the Super Cup, the Copa del Rey and the Euroleague. Of the four, he has won two. In addition, tomorrow begins the dispute of the play-offs of the Endesa League against the Youth of Badalona. The qualifiers for the quarterfinals, semifinals and final will be played in the best of three matches.
