WHAT: Phoenix Suns fans are invited to Streets of New York, located off Pima and Frank Lloyd Wright, on Wednesday, March 27 from 6 – 8 p.m., for the official Suns Viewing Party as the team faces the Utah Jazz.

On March 2, 1997 Horacio Llamas and the Phoenix Suns made history.

The 7-foot center from El Rosario, Mexico made his debut with the Suns, and, in the process, became the first Mexican-born player to step on the court in the NBA.

His roots in Arizona went deeper than that, as he first played organized basketball in the United States at Pima Community College in Tucson before transferring to Grand Canyon University to finish his collegiate career.
