Just a few months ago, the panorama of Real Madrid invited pessimism. It was as if one of the most buoyant times of his lustrous story went out without anyone seemed to do anything to remedy it. Stars escaped, others aged and the Barça de Jasikevicius emerged willing to end the cycle. But there was a roadmap. Silent and strategic. The return of Gabriel Deck and the renewal of Guerschon Yabusele, the two movements in the offices of last week, confirm the 'Plan Renove': there is Lasismo for a while.
Then, Alex Tyus was the paradigm of depression. A veteran already on the sunset of his race was the only market argument to the serious injury of Anthony Randolph. Facundo campazzo had just fleeing the NBA and the team was held by Tavares's omniprese, the strength of a Deck that would not take long to pack and an 18-year-old boy, USMan Garuba. A raquitic and exhausted template that would end up reaching at the Copa Final, in the Eurolean's quarters and also by the title of ACB, despite the meritories of self-love of the collective. The first blank of La Era Laso was, however, a fallow period.
In addition to the club's pandemic and austerity in these times, one of the great problems for the necessary reconstruction was precisely in the claws of that insatiable NBA that took Deck for two million euros when in a couple of months it ended Contract and remained free. In the reverse of that tyranny, Madrid has found the crack of him. And the first stone of the refoundation arrived in April, when the arrival of Vicent Poirier announced.
With Poirier and Tavares, Madrid raised a wall, two unequaled towers in Europe, both in its fullness. But much more was missing. In summer, Nigel Williams-Goss arrived, an American base physicist with many suitors, and Guerschon Yabusele, another renegade NBA. Thomas Heurtel and Adam Hanga supposed two market opportunities, contrasted, experienced players, which would not take long to fit. Differentials, one in attack and the other in defense. And with the Plus to get repudiated by the eternal rival.
Waiting for Randolph Recovering and Trey Thompkins, Laso recovered the strength of a physical and broad template, from which two veterans like Felipe Reyes and Jaycee Carroll (besides a laprovittola who never surrendered as expected) and that he had With the impulse of the prolific quarry. Juan Nuñez, Tristan Vukcevic or Eli Ndiaye have proven to be ready despite his age, integrated in the day-to-day of the first team. Klavzar, Baba Miller or Sediq Garuba discovered in the Emergencies Party against CSKA that there is still much more in the caradado who leads Alberto Angulo.
But the cherry to the future has arrived these last days. The penultimate stone. With the return of Deck and the renovation of a Yabusele that had left open doors: he had only signed for a year. Both up to 2025. Two talents of 26 years as support of everything else. Even with NBA clauses, but with contracts according to the status of him. And with the tattoo of the bad time of him on the other side of the puddle.
So Laso, the same as Juggling a year ago to just survive, is today, just over a month's first title, with a 15-piece template plus three promising quarry. With Llull and Rudy as Competitiveness Validores, a core of players above 30 (Causeur, Randolph, Thomkins, Taylor, Hanga and Heurtel) and another as a pillar of the present and tomorrow. Between the 21rs of Carlos Alocén and the 29 of Tavares, Abalde (26), Poirier (28), Deck (26), Yabusele (26) and Goss (27). Suddenly, muscle, favorite at all. And with plans even more: Juancho Hernangomen, another reboot, will be the great goal of summer.Updated Date: 11 January 2022, 06:22
