Nuggets Announce Pre-Season Game In Mexico
(FortCollins-CO) The Denver Nuggets announced yesterday that they will be playing the Golden State Warriors in Monterrey, Mexico on October 14th. The game will be held at the Arena de Monterrey. This game marks a homecoming for Nuggets forward Eduardo Najera who is a native of Mexico and only the second Mexican-born player to play in the NBA. Najera had this statement when asked about playing in front of a home crowd. "It is an honor to serve as a global ambassador for the NBA and the Nuggets while playing before my hometown fans,” said Nájera. “We will be proud to represent the NBA in a very positive way while providing local fans in Monterrey with a great game and first-class sports entertainment.” What's not to love about Najera? The guy is all hustle on the floor and a class act off.
