We study the existence of Daugavet- and delta-points in the unit sphere of Banach spaces with a 1 1 -unconditional basis. A norm one element x x in a Banach space is a Daugavet-point (resp. delta-point) if every element in the unit ball (resp. x x itself) is in the closed convex hull of unit ball elements that are almost at distance 2 2 from x x . A Banach space has the Daugavet property (resp. diametral local diameter two property) if and only if every norm one element is a Daugavet-point

Similarly spaces with the diametral local diameter two property do not have an unconditional basis with suppression unconditional constant strictly less than 2 2 . We show that no Banach space with a subsymmetric basis can have delta-points. In contrast we construct a Banach space with a 1 1 -unconditional basis with delta-points, but with no Daugavet-points, and a Banach space with a 1 1 -unconditional basis with a unit ball in which the Daugavet-points are weakly dense.
