This Monday, December 6, the Clutch – All Stars Celebrity Game, an exhibition match that brought together different figures from the world of streaming, music and entertainment, in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the NBA.
The transmission was in charge of NBA Latam, and had a peak of almost 35,000 simultaneous viewers. Was held in Clutch Basket, a complex located in Villa Urquiza of the renowned comedian Grego Rossello. He was the captain of one of the teams, while the rival was led by the ragman Duki.
The show brought together several figures from the national scene, and both teams wore the jerseys of two historic NBA teams: Duki’s team, which also featured Coscu, ZZK, Rusherking, Pimpeano and Lucho SSJ, went out to the court with the Chicago Bulls, while Grego’s, which featured Migue Granados, Luquita Rodriguez, Germán Beder, Ima Rodríguez and Guido, used the Los Angeles Lakers.
Clutch – All Stars Celebrity Game was broadcast on the Twitch channel of Luquita Rodríguez, one of the Argentine comedians of the year, and in the stories was the historical Jose Montesano, which during the Tokyo Olympic Games grew in popularity on social networks due to its effusive comments on the matches of the Argentine volleyball team. He was also accompanied in the comments by Goncho and Rober Galatti.
“I am a fan of the NBA, and for the NBA to hold an event on the court that I put together, with these monsters that came, is incredible. We had fun, the game was good and it was fought. 30k stream, I can’t believe everything turned out so well. We put a lot of work into it and things worked out. I’m very happy ”, Grego told Infobae Latin Power after finishing the meeting.
The show was also a luxury in terms of sports, because it experienced an electrifying finale on the field. The Lakers team trailed by 15 points but they matched the story and took the victory 40-39 in overtime.
– What went through your head when you were losing?
– The only thing I thought was about the boludeo that I was going to eat online. The guy broke eggs all week with the event, it’s his own court, and well, that’s what made me go out and drop everything. I didn’t come out for a second the whole game, which speaks a bit of my ego of not wanting to go out, but I felt like I was performing more on the pitch. Things turned out, I scored a couple of points and we won.
– Was it lived differently being related by José Montesano?
The truth is that José is a capo. It relates Olympic players, it is in the heart of all Argentines. José has a tremendous sensitivity, total professionalism, he began to study those of us who came today. He did it with total professionalism as if it were an Olympic game. For us it was an honor and a luxury.
It was the same rapporteur who gave details about the preparation he had to be part of the event: “There is a part that I have as a journalist that I am grateful to have and I cannot get rid of. Today we got together in the morning and I had data of those who played, height, what city they were from, etc. And they tell me to relax, to remove the TV chip ”.
Finally, Montesano highlighted the work of streamers and what they transmit to an entire generation: “These kids give me life, joy, I have a good time. They have good messages, I think that is good too. Over there in another vocabulary, more clever than mine. But it seems to me that there is always a message of joy, of enjoying, of great hope. And ultimately it seems to me that people also need that, regardless of how old they are ”.
