Facundo Campazzo he’s living a dream since his arrival at the NBA. The Argentine point guard had very good performances in the preseason games of Denver nuggets and is getting ready for his official debut in the best basketball league on the planet.
“As a kid, the NBA was a super distant fantasy. I’m here, I’m here and I want to play well, I’m not satisfied with making my debut, I’ll try to make a hole for myself. I must be like a good student who gathers as much information as possible and works to be better“, he described in a talk with Diario As de España.
“In the NBA, they place a lot of emphasis on fundamentals and player development, on training the little details. When I arrived I found assistants everywhere: from the coach, the second, the third, the fourth; the video assistant, the video assistant“, detailed the ex-base of Peñarol de Mar del Plata and Real Madrid.
Then, on his role in the team led by Michael Malone, he explained: “They know what I can contribute and I think my role will be to impose myself from the defense, in the defensive pick and roll, in one against one. I will not have the ball in my hand like in Madrid or in previous clubs, so I will try to improve the game without the ball“.
When will Campazzo debut in the NBA?
The Argentine base could have his official premiere this Wednesday, December 23, from 23 Argentina, when the Denver Nuggets play the first game of the season against the Sacramento Kings.
