I guess it's Murphy's law.
I've been anticipating Carlos participation in FIBA America's Olympic Qualifiers for the last months, and when the time finally came, I'm busier than ever, with a load of work enormously surpassing by far the average I’ve been having for the last two years.
Despite these problems, I'm in Mar del Plata, the city where the tournament takes place, ready to watch Carlos’ second game. Today Argentina will play against Puerto Rico (six NBA players on court) at 18.30 Milwaukee time (20.30 ARG). If you want to join me, you can follow the game through Argentina's official TV network live stream http://www.tvpublica.com.ar
Carlos, despite carrying a tendonitis in his right ankle, has been playing very well through warm up friendlies and against Uruguay, his first game in the tournament.
He came from the bench and in 22 minutes, he scored 11 points (all from the field with 3 treys from 5 attempts), 5 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 steal. Interesting to note, his popularity has risen a lot among Argentinean fans, who are placing him along with Ginobili and Scola, our local basketball semi gods.
Hopefully, I'll write again after the match.
