Four of Argentina’s NBA players, Carlos Delfino, Manu Ginobili, Fabricio Oberto and Andres Nocioni, were not on hand when the team squeaked out a bronze medal finish at the FIBA Americas Championship last year. But Luis Scola was, and he sparked the team after some early losses.
Due to some injuries and age, it is unclear who will be present for Argentina in Turkey, but the team is bound to be successful because its players are known for their dedication and commitment to the team. If Nocioni and Ginobili return from injuries and are able to compete alongside Scola, Argentina should be among the best again. Argentina opens the FIBA World Championship against Germany in Kayseri Aug. 28 in what could be one of the most intriguing first-round matchups.
