“The most incredible moments, in general, are linked to victories. One strives and experiences pressures and responsibilities, and it is a moment of ecstasy,” he said.

In tune, he added: “When you see it from the outside, you want to thank your teammates, technicians, masseurs, those who cleaned the field, who make the atmosphere good.”

Asked about the place that basketball occupies in Argentina, he said: “It is where it has to be. We could have generated a boom at the time, but then it goes back to where it has to be. To change that, there must be serious work, from the root , which will not happen in our country”.

The ceremony is scheduled to start around 8:00 p.m. in Argentina and will be broadcast by the signal DirecTV Sports. Also, chain 3 will be on the scene to cover.

The distinction that ‘Manu’ (retired in August 2018) will receive, trained under the FIBA ​​orbit, is not usually common in pairs from these latitudes, to the point that he will be the fourth South American to receive the award.
