Virtus Roma: jul 2005-jun 2007
Career high w/Virtus: 24pts 3 times (Serie A) + 27 pts @ Cibona Zagreb (Euroleague)
Best season w/Virtus: 2005/06 (15.6 ppg in Serie A + 14.2 ppg in Uleb Cup AKA Eurocup)
One of the greatest players who wore Virtus Roma jersey. He didn't just come to spend his final years. He came to conquer. Again. But it didn't happen because of a team which didn't play in a fair way.
The day of his last match, the entire PalaLottomatica stood up and started the chant "Bodiroga Olè" for about 15 minutes.
He was "slow". He was "old". He was God.
End of 2011/12 season. Gigi Datome played his best season with Virtus Roma up to that date. Virtus had some money troubles. Gigi had offers from other teams. He chose to stay and to reduce his wage. The man who chose led "the team which wasn't there" (la squadra che non c'era) to unthinkable goals. The reason for which - after NBA and Euroleague - Rome STILL loves Gigi is his heart. He gave everything he had on court (he still does so). He became the symbol and captain of the team.
Oh, by the way - he wasn't born with a beard, as you can see in the photo :) Ph. Jan 2010 - vs Olimpija Ljubljana, Euroleague
