12 Jul Tribute to Navarro for his 20 years at the Nike Camp
Posted at 21:53h
Nike Camp has prayed a tribute to Juan Carlos Navarro this Thursday because of his 20 years at the camp. First of all, the legend arrived to the Government pavilion of Andorra, where almost 200 players were waiting him forming a JC 11.
‘La Bomba’ sitted down on the middle of the court to watch a video tribute remembering anecdotes through all this years. Despite not being truly expressive, Navarro’s face revealed how emotional it was being.
And once the lights were turned on, Gerard Romero unveiled the great surprise. All the children of the Nike Camp wore a shirt with the name of Navarro and a 20 on its back. After the ceremony, Juan Carlos signed autographs and photographed himself with all the kids to conclude answering their questions.
‘Without all of you [children] and the entire organization I would never have been able to be twenty years here. For me it is an honor to come to Andorra, I spend a great time and I really enjoy playing with you”, Navarro concluded. Congratulations!
Oriola, second year at the camp
Pierre Oriola was also today at the Nike Camp, repeating the visit of last year. The Catalan center played several games with the children, impressing them with some powerful dunks and interacting with them. ‘How tall are you? You are very tall’, the littlest repeatedly asked him.
Oriola signed shirts, shoes and bags… and said some words: ‘I remember when I was young going to a camp in Zaragoza and having a great time. For children it is a unique experience, a week away from home, meeting new people … They should enjoy it!
