Facundo Campazzo broke the silence after confirming his landing in the NBA



The Cordovan thanked his time at the White House before landing in the Denver Nuggets and fulfilling his dream of playing in the NBA

At the age of 29, Facundo Campazzo made the decision to leave Real Madrid , one of the most important clubs in the FIBA ​​world, to fulfill his dream of joining the NBA. During his 5 seasons at the White House (he arrived in 2014, but spent two years on loan at UCAM Murcia) he won two Euroleague, three ACB leagues, four Super Cups and two King’s Cups.

The Cordovan point guard quickly became an idol for the fans. Faced with the impossibility of saying goodbye to them inside a field due to the prohibitions of the public as a result of the pandemic caused by the coronavirus, the Argentine granted an interview with the official channel of the Spanish institution to thank all the love he received during these years.

“ I would have liked to play with the public in my last game , to be able to say goodbye to them. I always tried to give 100 percent, think about the team and do everything to win. I want to thank you for so much support. Now it will be my turn to be one more fan, “said the former Peñarol.

In the next few hours he will make a stop at the Denver Nuggets , one of the contenders in the American league. The Colorado franchise has among its ranks brilliant figures such as Canadian point guard Jamal Murray, forward Michael Porter Jr, power forward Paul Milsap or internal Nikola Jokic. “It was not an easy decision, given all that Real Madrid represents for me. They spent many months talking with my family, with my wife, with close people analyzing situations and others. I wanted to fulfill a dream, I wanted to continue and achieve it. It was in my head that tomorrow, when I retire, I don’t want it to be because I didn’t try ”, explained Facu about the reasons that led him to move to the best league on the planet.

“ Real Madrid has given me everything. It formed me as a person, beyond a player. I take friends, colleagues, experience, experiences, titles, which is what makes this club great. I also thank Florentino (Pérez), my president, as I say, that I trust so much in me “, outlined the world runner-up in China 2019, revealing his good bond with the boss of the Merengue cast and the importance he gives to the basketball. “The last hours were very crazy, it has even cost me to sleep. It stressed me a bit, but my teammates, the whole team, made things easier for me, taking things to the background. I will be eternally grateful to them, “he added.

Campazzo also pointed out the important physical change he made since he arrived in Spain: “Compared to my first year, I did not know where I was coming from, even with a few extra kilos , the Facu of now I see much more advanced, both in the game as personally. My colleagues helped me in that transformation. This club always makes you reach the limit, to always play one hundred percent ”.

“I’m going to miss the day to day with my colleagues, who are friends more than colleagues. It is what is going to be missed. It is a club with all the comforts, “said the Cordoba, who first shared the squad with Chapu Nocioni and then with Nicolás Laprovittola and Gabriel Deck.
