Social media react to BCL triumph of Cinderella Burgos

ATHENS (Greece) - The fairy-tale story of Hereda San Pablo Burgos, who rose from (sporting) rugs to riches within five years to be proclaimed 2019-20 Basketball Champions League champions was, unsurprisingly, the talk of the virtual town on Sunday night.

That was always going to be the case of course for a club whose innovative social media presence took the BCL by storm back in September 2019, when they started their maiden European campaign and their long way to the top of the Olympus.

The success of the Castilla club attracted the admiration of a wide array of personalities of the Spanish and European basketball world, starting with his highness, Pau Gasol and including the likes of Jose Calderon, Sergio Scariolo, rivals like Bilbao Basket or Casademont Zaragoza, and former Burgos players like Augusto Lima, Javier Vega or Deon Thompson.
