NOr the game had ended when the Nou Congost burst into a standing ovation for Rafa Martínez, who left the game and hung up his shirt. The escort leaves the basketball before his public, who was dedicated, but with Madrid and Manresa, on the track, applauding and surrendering to what is already an emblem of Spanish basketball. Once the game was over, Rafa Martínez melted into hugs with everyone, very heartfelt indeed with Pedro Martínez and Pablo Laso. The Manresa coach said; “Yesterday there was volunteer training and he came. That was him.” The man from Madrid said he hadn’t been lucky enough to train him: “But I have an extraordinary relationship with him.” Rafa Martínez’s farewell is already one of the images of these Playoffs.
