Taking advantage of the day off given to them by the coaching staff, millionaire footballers take part in a game in the best basketball competition in the world.
River returned from Austin after beating Monterrey 1-0 in their first friendly of the year and is now focused on this Saturday’s game against Colombia’s Millonarios. Since the preseason is so demanding and with many double shifts, Martin Demichelis understands that players need some time to relax and have fun too, which is why he gave them Thursdays off so they could do whatever they wanted .
Before taking the day off and resting to continue training, an evening was held in which the players and coaching staff were going to watch an NBA basketball game. That’s right, a delegation of millionaires was present at the duel between the Miami Heat and the Milwaukee Bucks played at the FTX Arena in Miami. The result was anecdotal, but the locals won 108 to 102.
The organizers of the meeting and those in charge of the broadcast quickly realized the presence of the River Squad and focused cameras on them. For a few seconds they appeared on the giant screen which is almost ceiling height in the center of the field and some fans were encouraged to approach asking for photos and autographs.
This is not the first time that Milos has attended an NBA game in the preseason in the United States: in 2017At that time the delegation, led by Marcelo Gallardo, also went to see a Bucks game, in this case against the Orlando Magic. And with Perlita that Lucas Elario went down the field of play and shot the hoop in front of the entire stadium.
