“The New Old Boys” at one of basketball’s most storied clubs, AX Armani Exchange Milan’s, are the subject of the newest production in the Insider Documentary Series created by Euroleague Basketball and presented by ENEOS Motor Oil to deliver a unique look beyond the glare of the parquet and into the personal stories of the continent’s biggest names.

Per EuroLeague:

This season has seen Milan launch an ambitious challenge for the EuroLeague title on the back of several experienced stars who had already enjoyed great success elsewhere. This fly-on-the-wall documentary gives fresh insight into how four-time title-winning Head Coach Ettore Messina is attempting to mold a winning blend with a veteran roster featuring former champions Kyle Hines, Sergio Rodriguez and Luigi Datome.

Messina recalls that his arrival in Milan came after a meeting with team owner Giorgio Armani which made it hard for him to say no.

“When you sit in front of Mr. Giorgio Armani, it’s something special because you meet one of the most impressive characters of our century. And we found a common agreement on how to structure the club. The most important thing is the possibility to choose the people that you work with.”
