Messi, “All Star”
Leo Messi was presented with a personalised number 10 Lakers shirt before training this morning, coinciding with the presence of the Campus Bàsquet Sense Fronteres at the Ciutat Esportiva.
The Campus has been set up for the 50 best young European players, who are receiving training from
NBA players and coaches. NBA international operations vice-president Kim Bohuny is attending the
campus and made the presentation to Messi.
The Lakers shirt, with Messi’s name and number 10 inscribed was
presented on behalf of the Lakers and the NBA as a whole and given to Messi, who is a big fan of
the NBA, on the training pitch just before this morning’s session began.
Kim Bohuny expressed his disappointment that Messi would be unable to
attend in person the game between Regal FC Barcelona and the Lakers at the Palau Sant Jordi on
October 7th. The Argentinean will be on international duty in Japan the following day.
