Campazzo: "Laso is a legend and it helped me that he was demanding"

Facu Campazzo, now an NBA player, reviews his time in Spain after receiving the MVP of the ACB Decade: "He formed me as a person."


Facu Campazzo, just after playing his best game in the NBA so far, spoke to Basket Al Día (Movistar +) to talk about his recent award in the ACB, the competition he left at the end of last year. The Argentine was awarded, by popular vote, as MVP of the Decade in the Endesa League and that is the reason why he wanted to review aspects of the seasons he spent in it.

"It makes me very happy to receive an award of such magnitude", he admitted, also emphasizing that he won the final against a Llull with whom he shared a position and that he has achieved so many successes at Real Madrid: "Being in this final with Sergi too He has a special point. He is a friend and with him close I lived very nice things. He, quietly, could have taken him too ".

"Both in Madrid and Murcia they helped me a lot to give me confidence and show that I could play this competition," he pointed out, since for two years he was loaned by the whites.

"If they had told me ten years ago, I would not have believed it. These six years were the ones that practically formed me as a player and as a person," he said: "The titles, sometimes like this, go to the background ".

With Real Madrid, the base from Córdoba won 2 Euroleague, 3 Leagues, 2 Cups and 3 Super Cups in addition to four important individual awards. This MVP of the Decade is nothing more than the confirmation of the success he achieved in such a short time.

He also wanted to give a lot of value to what Pablo Laso achieved, both collectively and personally: "He is a legend. At the time he was a player and that helps in the day-to-day. When to rest, when to put in a cane ... He has been able to assemble a team with a lot of talent. Personally, he helped me a lot; he was a base and, being demanding, he wanted to find my best version to help the team.
