Who is Facundo Campazzo? – NBA



The Argentine guard had a historic night with the Denver Nuggets and at PlayOn99 News we tell you who it is. Campazzo completed his first year in the NBA and is already at the most desirable table this season.

Facundo Campazzo was born in Córdoba, Argentina, on March 23, 1991, but came to the NBA only at the end of 2020. After a season worthy of a rookie, the base of the Argentine national team settled in the most important league of the world.

This morning he had a phenomenal performance in the Denver Nuggets jersey and wrote impressive numbers. 22 points, 12 assists, 5 steals, 3 triples, 2 blocks and 4 re  bounds. The only player to record these same numbers or more in an NBA game was LeBron James in 2008.

The Houston Rockets was the victim of him this day, but the entire season is very promising. His best ability was always the assists and in the NBA you could see the quality that he has to see things that the rest cannot. He exploited it to the fullest.

Denver rolled over Houston this morning and Nikola Jokic had an exceptional night with 24 points. Although the lights fell on Campazzo and a wonderful play: the Argentine dressed up and drew a dribble worthy of Magic Johnson. Chill out.

El Mago, as he was nicknamed in Denver, trained in Peñarol de Mar del Plata and was elected revelation and best player in his country. He came to the NBA at 29 from Real Madrid, where Campazzo became the best point guard in Europe. With the Argentine national team he was runner-up in the world in the last tournament of 2019.

The 1.78 tall Argentine guard was chosen in November 2020 to be part of the Denver Nuggets and, due to his role as Rookie, participated in the Rising Stars Challenge that takes place before the NBA All-Star Game.

When he landed in the United States, Facundo Campazzo drew attention for the way he played and how he assisted his teammates. At first it seemed to be a social media obsession, but over time it became a reality.

The Argentine won the hearts of the people through assists, steals and points. Denver Nuggets lives a perfect present and its last two victories -against Golden State and Los Angeles Clippers– positioned it 5th in the Western Conference.

It’s clear Denver has Nikola Jokic as its key pillar and superstar, but Facu Campazzo has become vital and fun to the show the NBA wants. When these two players get together, the rest of the teams rethink whether they can against the Nuggets.
