Not everyone knows Messi
Lionel Messi is praised by many people around the world. He is spending some days in the USA, where he is really loved. But not everyone knows him...
The Argentine National Team attended NBA match between Pacers Indiana and Wizards, and many players took a picture with Barça's star. One of the Pacers players, David West, was interviewed at the end of the match by the journalist Candace Buckner and when he was asked about the attendance of Messi in the match he answered: "Who is Leo Messi?" After this astonishing answer, the journalist answered Messi was the biggest star in the world. West answered "What does he do?"
Here you can read the conversation explained by journalist Buckner:
