Flamengo and Franca made the NBB grand final and the São Paulo team came out on top after four matches. At the end of the championship, the NBB voted for the best of the 2023/24 season, and Mais Querido had two representatives chosen: Gui Deodato and Gabriel Jaú.

Gui Deodato won the award for best winger of the year, with 12.4 points and 12.9 efficiency, alongside Isaac Thornton, from Botafogo. Inside the cage, the winner was Gabriel Jaú, chosen as one of the pivots of the year, with 13.5 points and seven rebounds. The other best pivot was Lucas Dias, from Sesi Franca.

OTHER CATEGORIES AWARDED

In addition to the "best pivots and best wingers" award, the NBB also awarded other categories, such as: coach of the year, defender of the year, point guard, 6th man, foreigner of the year, outstanding young player, biggest evolution, most efficient player, assists leader, rebounds leader, basket of the year and MVP.

SEASON 2023 /24 DO FLAMENGO

Mais Querido had a campaign below expectations at Flabasquete. This is because Rubro-Negro only won the Super 8 Cup trophy and was runner-up in the NBB and the Champions League of the Americas. Therefore, a better season is expected from Rubro-Negro.

This Wednesday (19), Mais Querido officially renewed the contract with Gustavinho, coach of the main team. Thus, despite fans' complaints towards the coach, he will lead the team for a few more seasons.

The Argentine winger Martín Cuello will not continue at Flamengo. The player announced that his intention is to return to the Argentine National League or compete in the Uruguayan League, where he already played for Club Malvin in 2021.

Cuello, who is known by his nickname "Loku", arrived at Flamengo had high expectations, but his time at the Brazilian club was relatively short. With the red and black shirt, Cuello had good moments, but was unable to establish himself as one of the team's main players. The decision not to continue at Flamengo seems to be more related to his personal plans and the search for new opportunities in his career.


FLAMENGO IS RESCUED


Martín Cuello arrived at Flamengo as a promising reinforcement . The player, 1.92m tall, is known for his versatility on the court and ability to play both wing and point guard positions. His experience in South American leagues, including his time at Club Malvin in Uruguay, led to the expectation that he could add value to the Flamengo squad.

During his stay at Flamengo, Cuello participated in several competitions, including the NBB (New Basketball Brazil). However, he failed to stand out consistently and ended up not having the impact expected by the board and fans. Despite this, Cuello demonstrated professionalism and dedication, characteristics that are valued in the sporting world.

Arrascaeta begins preparation for Vitória x Flamengo

Sunday was not just a celebration for Arrascaeta and the other Uruguayans from Flamengo.
