SASSARI. A start with a bang, a finale full of disappointments and in between many, too many, ups and downs. The Dinamo branded Demis Cavina had a short life not only due to the responsibility of the native coach of Castel San Pietro who in the last two years had already been at the Sardara court on the Turin bench.

On July 2, the announcement of the signature, which had been in the air for some time. After the pre-season retreat in Sassari, the biancoblù are playing just two friendlies at the Cagliari tournament. In the first, Banco unexpectedly beats Andrea Trinchieri’s Bayern Munich, only to lose head-on the following day against another Euroleague team, Baskonia. In the first round of the Supercoppa four wins in four games, but against teams that are incomplete (Varese) or filled with young people (Cremona) and perhaps this is where we get too many illusions. There is a player missing (Diop’s return is still far away) and under the basket we make do with the second lines, or with tactical “magic” that sometimes pay off, but often don’t.

In mid-September at the Supercoppa Final Eigh in Bologna the first misstep, against Brindisi, without actually ever entering the game. Then in the championship two home victories from tears and blood against Pesaro (+2, against the current Serie A Cinderella) and Reggio Emilia (+3 in overtime after a long run-up), and another defeat with Brindisi, not clear in the score but in the dynamics, which removes the first doubt: no, Dinamo is not up to the level of Vitucci’s Salento.

In the meantime, three blows arrive in the Champions League: in Ludwigsburg (-13 but without ever being in the game), in Tenerife (-27 after a good start and a vertical collapse in the second half) and at home with Prometey after a promising start (+ 16) and another devastating collapse (10-30 break). The beautiful victory in Treviso does not give the confidence boost that is expected, because the team is unglued, some players have an embarrassing performance and no one can find a minimum continuity of performance. From then on, only defeats arrive in the league, indeed real blows: -11 at home with Brescia (once again always below), -29 in Milan, and okay, -9 at home with Trieste after a humiliating 39-71 of the third period, and finally in Casale con Tortona: a few days before the biancoblù beat Ludwigsburg in the cup, Clemmons is already in the US and a confirmation is expected. Instead, after a decent first half, in which Dinamo collects little, comes the disaster of 40 points collected in the third quarter. The subsequent blackout is a harbinger of decisions. Yesterday the final act. (a.si.)
