A genuine star in Argentina, Gutierrez is unknown in Europe, where he only spent one anonymous season in Spain's second division LEB. Gutierrez' profile is quite similar to Andres Nocioni's. A strong forward, fearless when driving to the basket, Gutierrez also can shoot the three and has a very nice basketball IQ. National team coach Sergio Hernandez recently said that Gutierrez symbolizes the right state of mind when it comes to the national team.
Already an Olympic champion and a world championship finalist, Gutierrez will never turn down an invitation to the national team. He recently headed to the South American championship after every other Argentina player from Athens stayed home. Gutierrez probably won't play a lot in Japan. But when on the court, he will give everything he's got.
