It is the first part of the self titled “Spanish Apartment Trilogy” of films centered on the character of Xavier and his progression from student to family man and friends he initially encounters in a student share-house in Spain.

Both teams played in the playoffs last year but didn’t achieve their goals, so we can expect them to be very hungry this season. We will have the chance to see two of the best shooters in the NBA with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson who play for the Warriors and recently won the Gold medal at the basketball world cup as a part of Team USA. In addition to that, we will also be able to see future Hall of Famer and NBA legend Kevin Garnett play for the Nets. There are also some international players on both teams. Read More >>
