Willy’s most embarrassing moment: ‘I fell while trying to mate’

Willy Hernangómez (27 years and 2.11 meters) faces his sixth season in the NBA, the second in a New Orleans Pelicans that renewed him this summer for three years and 7.3 million dollars. Before Louisiana, the Spanish international (a fixture for Sergio Scariolo) had made his league debut with the New York Knicks to land a year and a half later at Charlotte Hornets. In the Michael Jordan franchise he spent two and a half seasons.

A journey that has allowed the pivot to play 256 games in the North American League. Many encounters, many trips, many experiences that the player himself reviews in the Pelicans website. In the report, Willy looks back and tells his best moments and, also, some not so good … but fun, like his most embarrassing moment in the championship: “When I was in Charlotte, I tried to dunk someone, but I fell and the ball didn’t even touch the ring. It was terrible. I try to forget about that ”, says the Spaniard.

“The first time I played against my brother (Juancho). My family was there. It was at Madison Square Garden, when he was playing for the Knicks. It was a very, very emotional moment, playing against my brother and having my parents and my sister in the pavilion ”.
