Manu Ginobili with his former teammates in New York.
Seven members of the Golden generation of Argentine basketball experience a true graduate journey through New York. Walks through the emblematic places of Manhattan, bike rides in the Big Apple and lots of selfies, according to the times. It all happens after Manu Ginóbili entered the Springfield Hall of Fame: they were there in the fight against the former San Antonio. From there they headed after a 250-kilometer tour to US Open tennis and then continued with social life.
Accompanying him were Luis Scola, Fabricio Oberto, Pablo Prigioni (who traveled after directing the Argentine national team to the AmeriCup victory), Chapu Nocioni, Pepe Sánchez and Gabriel Fernández. It is that, although Ginóbili entered the hall of fame thanks to his incredible career in the NBA, his great and permanent companions on this journey were that group of Argentines who started walking with him from his beginnings in Bahía Blanca until reaching the ultimate Olympus at the Athens Olympic Games.
“The craziest thing in my career is that I have simultaneously had such a beautiful, successful career as the one in San Antonio, which was for the Argentina national team. We have always done everything as a team. I appreciate everything. the titles, the conversations, the meetings, the jet lag, the breakfasts, which is more than friendship, it is brotherhood. We hope to have more adventures now. Thanks to the NBA for giving us this amazing context to do what we love. The best sports organization. Thanks to the fans, I felt their passion, their love, every day, “Manu said, acknowledging the influence of his peers and friends.
Manuel and the Chapu Nocioni published the images with Pepe Sánchez, Gabriel Fernández, DrainPrigioni (on Saturday he won the AmeriCup as coach of the national team) and Oberto, who also shared the images.
They look happy at the Argentine crepes who have decided to share the joy of meeting again. Although the goal of high competition is still remembered, the golden generation repeats this journey of graduates whenever they can.
