Career: Atenas Cordoba (Argentina, 1995-1998), Olympiakos Piraeus (Greece-ESAKE, 1998-99), Tau Vitoria (Spain-ACB, 1999-2002), Pamesa Valencia (Spain-ACB, 2002-2005), San Antonio Spurs (USA-NBA, 2005-08).
Argentina center Fabricio Oberto has been a key member of the National Team over the years, starting for the side that reached the final of the 2002 FIBA World Championship and the Athens Games two years later. In the NBA as Manu Ginobili’s teammate with San Antonio, his numbers have not been that impressive (4.8 points and 5.2 rebounds), but his importance goes beyond the numbers. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich knows it, Argentina boss Sergio Hernandez knows it and the entire international basketball community knows it. Come Beijing, Oberto will be on board to do a lot of the dirty work. He’ll rebound, dish out assists, block shots and set picks. At 33, this will be his last Olympics.
