Ginobili could play in 2014 basketball World Cup

Jul 5 2013, 3:48am CDT | by

Buenos Aires, July 5 (IANS) Argentine basketball player Manu Ginobili, gold-medal winner in Athens 2004, said he will play in the 2014 Spain World Cup if he is in good physical condition.

Buenos Aires, July 5 — Argentine basketball player Manu Ginobili, gold-medal winner in Athens 2004, said he will play in the 2014 Spain World Cup if he is in good physical condition.

"If I am in good shape, there are more chances that I will play the World Cup," said Ginobili in a press conference at Buenos Aires's Ezeiza international airport Thursday, minutes after his arrival to Argentina for holidays, reports Xinhua.

Ginobili, 35, added that "it depends, exclusively, on my physical condition. I had a complicated season. If I am healthy, there are more chances I can play (the World Cup)", he insisted.

The Argentine basketball player, currently with the United States team San Antonio Spurs, which lost the final against two-time champions Miami Heat, said that if the next season is like the one he recently finished "it will be difficult".

"I had many strains and this psychologically affects. As time goes by I will see my progress and will take a decision," he said.

Ginobili announced Wednesday that he signed an agreement to continue for two more years with San Antonio Spurs.

"I am very happy to be in the country again. The season was very long, more than it is regular, but it is worth it," he said.

The athlete, born in Bahia Blanca, in the province of Buenos Aires, is part of the "Golden Generation" of Argentine basketball who won the gold medal in Athens 2004, bronze medal in Beijing 2008 and placed fourth in London 2012.

In Indianapolis 2002 World Cup, Argentina were runners up; in Japan 2006 fourth and in Turkey 2012 fifth.

Ranking Every Season of Gregg Popovich as San Antonio Spurs Head Coach

Oct 24 2014 7:01pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Can San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich improve upon a 2013-14 campaign that may have been his finest yet? After inking a multiyear extension with the club this summer, he'll have a few opportunities to do just that. Star veterans Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili may be reaching the end of their respective careers, but 32-year-old Tony Parker remains in his prime, and 2014 NBA Finals MVP Ka ...

Kawhi Leonard's Emergence Will Force San Antonio Spurs to Evolve Again

Oct 9 2014 7:25pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

SAN ANTONIO — The stability and continuity that characterize the San Antonio Spurs could understandably leave some believing this team is averse to change. To the contrary, few organizations have committed to such a purposeful evolution—an evolution that may increasingly revolve around the emergence of 2014 Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard. Just as the team abandoned it's post-heavy preferences for an uptempo scheme that featured heavy doses of Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, San Antonio ...

Could Kawhi Leonard Break the San Antonio Spurs' Minutes Mold?

Oct 2 2014 2:31pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

SAN ANTONIO — After playing just 29.1 minutes per contest during the 2013-14 regular season, San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard averaged 37.3 minutes through the last three games of the NBA Finals. The result? A combined 71 points, 28 rebounds and plenty of defensive contributions—oh, and those Finals MVP honors.

Gregg Popovich Says Spurs Are Better On Boris Diaw’s Offseason Weight Gain

These San Antonio Spurs will always be about Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan first and foremost, with Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili in the near background, too. And as Kawhi Leonard’s star rises ever higher, perhaps he’ll make that exalted quartet a fivesome. But to us, nothing embodies the champion Spurs more than the playful […] The post Gregg Popovich Says Spurs Are Better On Boris Diaw’s Offseason Weight Gain ...

What If Kawhi Leonard Doesn't Become a San Antonio Spurs Superstar This Season?

Sep 16 2014 2:04am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Kawhi Leonard has largely been a quiet standout for the San Antonio Spurs, but the small forward has proven he holds the potential of becoming a top NBA player. That statement is not exactly ground-shaking, especially given his elite showing during the 2013 finals. The Miami Heat may have won the series, but Leonard's hype train began rumbling at a dangerous speed. He was soon heralded as the next best thing, and it was supposed to be an immediate change for ...

Argentina's golden generation changed international basketball forever

Sep 8 2014 11:38am CDT | Source: SBNation

The "Golden Generation" of top Argentinian players likely played its final game in a Round of 16 loss to Brazil at the 2014 FIBA World Cup. We remember how this group of players turned the world upside down. On Sunday, Brazil thoroughly defeated Argentina in the 2014 FIBA World Cup Round of 16.
