It was awards day. Distribution of diplomas. The day after the end of the regular season, which was marked in particular by the maintenance in extremis of Paris Basketball thanks to its victory over Boulogne-Levallois, the National Basketball League celebrated, this Wednesday, the best players in the Betclic Elite. And many Ile-de-France residents have been honored.
Leader for most of the season - before finally finishing in 3rd place behind Asvel and Monaco - the Boulogne-Levallois club won three trophies, the most prestigious. Conductor of the Mets collective, as comfortable in the finish as in the organization, the American Will Cummings, 29, won the trophy for best leader and, above all, that of best player, MVP . A habit for the Mets' top scorer and passer since he was elected MVP of the German championship in 2019 when he wore the colors of Oldenburg.
He is not the only "Mets" rewarded of the evening since Vincent Collet was crowned best coach. A nice revenge for the one who had been dismissed by Strasbourg in January 2020 and had not coached in a club since. The trophy was presented to him by Alain Weisz, the director of basketball operations at the Mets and his mentor, the one who started him on a bench at the end of the last century at Le Mans.
