Nba, sensational debut for the “Genoese” Paolo Banchero: 27 points, like Kareem and LeBron

Genoa – A screaming debut for Paolo Banchero in the NBA. The number 1 choice of the last Draft tried to drag the Orlando Magic in the first game of the season, but in the end it was the Detroit Pistons who won 113-109. The basketball player of Genoese origins (he was born in Seattle 19 years ago) scored 27 points in 35 minutes of play with 9 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 blocks, 4 turnovers, 11/18 shooting, 5/7 free shots. A performance that makes Banchero rightfully enter the history of the NBA, given that previously the only two rookies to score at least 25 points, with 5 rebounds and 5 assists had been a certain Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 1969 and LeBron James in 2003.
