23 December 2013 – Yesterday the unbeaten (10-0) Real Madrid visited runner-up Valencia Basket (9-1) in quite possibly the game of the season. Valencia led throughout the game with up to so much as 15 points of a lead. However poor (rigged?) officiating and Rudy Fernandez’s flopping turned the game around and Madrid eventually took the game by 7 points.
The day before yesterday when the team arrived in Valencia a was able to get autographs from Sergio Llull and Felipe Reyes. Yesterday after the game I received further autos from Sergio Rodríguez, Marcus Slaughter, Tremmell Darden, Dontaye Draper and Nikola Mirotic.
