It was an incredible scene when we saw Fenerbahce lift the EuroLeague trophy in-front of a home audience at the Sinan Erdem Dome in May, but one of the more unforgettable moments was when Pero Antic gave Luigi Datome a hair cut.
The snip attracted a lot of attention and became one of the more humorous stories to come out this year’s Final Four.
But if Datome thinks that the image change is going to end there, then his Italian international team-mate Melli has other plans.
”If we win the EuroLeague title, I will cut Datum’s beard,” Melli told Turkish media. “Last time he cut his hair, this time he will lose his beard.” But whether Datome will be on board with that is another matter. He previously said that would cut his beard only if he wins the NBA title.
A back-to-back EuroLeague championship might sway Datome though..
