Nocioni, who played five seasons with the Bulls, won the Euroleague championship MVP and said the Real Madrid team has achieved “something wonderful.”
“I’m really happy at being able to make the supporters happy and bring them this long-awaited trophy. We’ve achieved something wonderful and we’re happy to be here. My MVP award belongs to the whole team”.
