Gabriel Deck said to fulfill a dream after making his official debut in the NBA with a timid statistical performance that did leave details of a lot of class in the specific plays in which he had an impact on the court. The former Real Madrid player debuted with 15 minutes and a harvest of 2 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists in the Oklahoma City Thunder’s 95-109 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans.
The Argentine international had a couple of outstanding interventions, first scoring his first basket in the American league against the opposition of Zion Williamson and then giving a wonderful back pass for his teammate Isaiah Roby’s basket.
Both commentators and Deck’s colleagues at OKC were stunned by the magnificent play of his new colleague, who received everyone’s praise after the crash. Even Manu Ginobili, Argentine basketball legend, went to bed late to see his compatriot’s debut live.
