Marquez was appearing on behalf of Tissot, the Official Watch of the NBA and the Houston Rockets and the Official Timekeeper of MotoGP.
After the game,Marc Marquez took time to answer the media’s questions. He said: “I’m always up for new experiences, so when Tissot gave me this opportunity to attend an NBA game,I thought it was a great chance to do something exceptional. It is not often that MotoGP and the NBA cross over, but because of Tissot, I was able to partake in this incredible experience.”
The fact that Marc Marquez, Tissot’s ambassador, came to an NBA Game is no coincidence since the Swiss watch brandhas been the Official Watch and Timekeeper of the NBA since 2015.
