    I like this argentinian team very much, my only beef with them being their apparent lack of size and height. Having just one player near to 6'11" (Leiva) is gonna be difficult controlling the boards and defending taller bigmen of other teams. I think your coach should have included youngster Delia in the squad, as I liked his skills and shooting touch last year in U-19 tournament. Still, I think even this aging squad can easily contend for yet another medals this summer - the quality and intelligent fast basketball is still there

    I pretty much agree with you. I think Leiva won´t play much, so i would have choosen Delia over him, he is a interesting young and tall player, and we will need a lot of him in the upcomming years, so, this could have been a good experience for him.

    PS: BTW, Delia, Campazzo, Leiva and both Gutierrez, plus some youngsters are going to play the Southamerican Championship starting next monday.

That kid might surprise a lot of people at the Olympics.

    As for the center position, I guess Scola will play as center with Nocioni/Kammerichs and Leo Gutierrez as PF. Juan Gutierrez will replace Scola and i think he is not going to play a lot. About Leiva i guess he will enter only to defend try to get some rebound and spent his 5 personal fouls haha. Marcos Delia (92' 6'11"), who played well in the U19 World Cup and also played at the Nike Hoop Summit, was competing to make the team for London, but our coach is so conservative and he considers him too inexperienced. I believe we will see Delia take over the center position after London.
    Campazzo is great. The fact that he's not even on NBA radar shows that NBA teams don't scout internationally like they claim they do. He might be the best point guard in the world at the 1991 generation. I think Scola and JP Gutierrez is fine for the center position. Kammerichs can help defensively at several positions, so I am sure he will be on the team.

    Yes its really curious. They don´t scout the LNB. Also, for some strange reason Campazzo didn´t play the 2009 U19 WC, so i guess they don´t have a clue about him. Plus its like scouts don´t bother to watch a 5'11" player.

    Argentina defeated Brasil 80-74 in a really close game. Manu Ginobili 33 pts 3 rbs and 2 ast, Juan Gutiérrez 20 pts plus 8 rbs. As for Brasil Leandrinho 17 pts 4 ast, and Huertas 15 pts 4 rbs. Brasil looking great though.


    BTW No Carlos Delfino for Argentina and no Nene for Brasil.

    When Ginobili is on the court, Argentina is a super team.

    Brazil had a lot of fouls trouble. I didnt like to see Brazil forcing the game from the outside.
