It shouldn't be. Defense and passing are the two best traits he has as a player. He is very pesky and tenacious on defense. And even though he's only like probably 5-10 or 5-11, he is very athletic, very tough, and very strong. And his motor on both ends of the court is amazing.
He won't be as effective on defense in the NBA though, because the NBA rules don't allow any physicality or contract on ball handlers, like they do in Europe. But still, Campazzo is one of those super annoying little flies on defense.

Anyone can cherry pick clips and make any player (even Jordan) look bad, and/or create a certain narrative about that player.
For example, that video claims Campazzo is the best point guard outside the NBA. Well, that isn't true. He's one of my favorite players, and he's a very good player for sure, but he's never at any time been the best point guard outside of the NBA. He's also never been the best point guard in Europe either. So I really wouldn't base anything on that video.

His release point is a little low and forward. With his height, it might be a problem. But he has a nice step-back and seems to only take open 3s. I think his offense will be fine. I'm still concerned about his defense. He plays defense like a rover and makes steals, but I'm not impressed with his one-on-one defense.
I'll stick with "I like having him on the team and will wait to see how he fits in. He seems to have a high BB-IQ, so I think he'll work out well.
I've watched Campazzo play for years, both with Argentina's NT and with clubs in Spain. His defense is much better than his shooting.
