The Mexico City Capitanes traveled for three hours before they arrived at a gymnasium near Austin. The Mexico City G League team found a home in Texas as part of their NBA journey. Also, they are the first Mexican team to be part of the NBA’s developmental league.
The Capitanes are sharing the gym with a martial arts tournament. However, they don’t have problems with it as they start their afternoon practice session. The team is part of the NBA’s venture into Mexico.
According to sports betting odds experts, the team was supposed to be part of the G League last year. However, the pandemic prevented them from traveling to the US. So instead, the Mexico City Capitanes will go across the US for two months to play several road games.

Capitanes Coach Ramon Diaz said it would be tiring for the team because they don’t have a home. Due to the pandemic, the team is staying in Fort Worth. Also, they don’t have a home court. However, they hope for a future that’s free from continuous bus trips.
According to people who bet on basketball, the G League will have games in Mexico City next year. It is part of the league’s plan to expand into the international market. However, it would still depend on the state of the pandemic.
Capitanes president Rodrigo Serratos said that he plans to create youth academies in Mexico City to develop talent at a grassroots level. In addition, he has been with the team on the road to study how other teams engage with fans and produce their games.
According to Korean Sports Betting experts, the Capitanes want to build a solid fan base. Also, they want to become a recognized brand in Latin America. Serratos’ biggest dream is to turn Capitanes into an NBA franchise.
