Nuggets Guard Wants Another Shot In The NBA

It's been a frustrating two seasons in the Mile High City for Denver Nuggets flashy point guard Facundo Campazzo. In the final 14 games of the season last year, Facu was a forgotten man in the Nuggets' backcourt, garnering DNPs in 9 of those, while earning only 7 minutes of playing time total in four of them, and not even dressing for another. He also scarcely played in Denver's playoff series loss to Golden State.

In an interview with an Argentine media outlet, the most creative passer in the league says he has an offer to return to Real Madrid, where he played before he came to the NBA, but he definitely wants to give the NBA another chance. 

“I think I showed that I can compete when I’m well,” Campazzo said. “When they give me confidence and I feel part of the rotation. In fact, the first-year playoffs I started in everything but the last game. And in the regular season I played a lot. … I’m not saying no to Real Madrid. What I’m saying is that my attention and energy is on the NBA. My first choice is that, that’s the message. I feel like an NBA player and I want to stay at that level.”

Over his two years in North America, he's averaged 5.6 points and 3.5 points in about 20 minutes per game. But more than anything, he's known for his dazzling dimes. 

Somewhere, whether it's in Madrid, or in North America, there'll be a fanbase feasting on some spectacular dishes this coming season.
