After the conquest of the AmeriCup of the Argentine national team, the figure and captain of the team, Facundo Campazzo, said that the team is in “reconstruction” and that it is going through “a process of creation”, after the departure of coach Néstor “Che” García.In this sense, the former point guard of the Denver Nuggets of the NBA, who did not get a team for this new season, he stood out among those led by Pablo Prigioni, who suffered from the absences of Patricio Garino, due to injury, and Luca Vildoza. After arriving in the country, the basketball player spoke with the press from the Ezeiza airport and remarked: “We are happy for what we achieved, for all the work we are doing since August 4 that we started training. The goal was achieved. We are in reconstruction and we enjoy being in that process of creation.”
On the other hand, he remarked that after the appointment of Prigioni the squad “did not change much” and indicated: “He did not want to play much, we had been training in a way for 20 days, he put his hand, we trusted Pablo and we showed it on the court.” In addition, he pointed out in the final that they beat Brazil and pointed out that they never felt inferior: “In the last quarter it was more complicated than expected. We did a good job in the first three, and it allowed us to get well into the home stretch when it was already ball by ball. The one who defended himself best was going to take the game. We made 8 points only, but the defense was very good.” Finally, he was asked about the distinction that Emanuel Ginobili experienced with the induction into the NBA Hall of Fame: “Many of this group were lucky enough to share a team with him, the values he showed in his career, on and off the court, are what he taught us. He is one of the best athletes in Argentina,” he concluded.
