How special is the Argentine team Spurs star Manu Ginobili will lead into the FIBA Americas pre-Olympic qualifying tournament late this month?
In an article featured Thursday on FIBA’s website, Ginobili said he has never been part of a team that is more singular in its approach to one goal.
“I have never been part of a team like this where everyone is fighting for the same goal with so much team-work,” he said during a press conference in Argentina, his comments reported by the FIBA site.
“We are all proud to be a part of it, it is a great honor, a great pleasure to represent the country and unite together.
“There are players who are stars from their club teams who come here and leave their ego aside. That’s what I admire.
“To play with players of this quality makes everything easier.”
The pre-Olympic qualifier is to run from Aug. 30-Sept. 11 in Mar del Plata, Argentina.
