Having recently held his training camp in France, Nando de Colo had a nice misadventure when he got trash-talked by a budding basketball player. The tricolor international therefore wanted to take revenge, which he did by humiliating his vis-à-vis as it should be!
Since his departure from the NBA in 2014, having not really been able to make his mark at the Spurs then at the Raptors, Nando de Colo has conversely been able to score on the European scene. Whether with CSKA Moscow or Fenerbahce Istanbul, the French rear has enjoyed almost indecent success. Double winner of the Euroleague in 2016 and 2019, MVP of the competition in 2016, he also accumulated five Russian championship titles as well as a title in Turkey in 2022. An absolutely mind-blowing record.
Now however, it is on the side of the Hexagon that he will make the show, since he has decided to return to the country. Heading for ASVEL for the veteran, who joins a team that just lost Victor Wembanyama. By the time the season begins, there’s still some time to kill though. The player was therefore able to quietly hold his training camp for young people, sharing a few moments on social networks:

On this occasion, the budding athletes were naturally able to try their luck against the star of the Blues, and one of them also became famous in a viral way in this area. Author of a big shot on the muzzle of De Colo, he then continued with trash-talking, making his eldest understand that he was too small to counter his shot! Obviously, it could not stop there and the person concerned went to punish his young opponent at the first opportunity:

At the time, it felt like we were no longer at training camp, but at a Euroleague meeting when we see the teenagers rushing around the two concerned. Big name of the parquet floors or young basketball player, it did not make the slightest difference for De Colo, who allowed himself to stare hard at his vis-à-vis the gaze. All naturally in a good mood, however, enough to offer unforgettable memories to all those who were there, no doubt about it.
Nando de Colo had to lead by example, and the young people present at his camp now know how to respond when someone provokes you. A most useful lesson! It’s up to him to show that he can do the same in the Betclic Elite league next year.
