National Team coach Sergio Hernandez is optimistic about the chances of Ginobili playing at the Olympic Games for the fourth time with Argentina, though. “To me, he’s going to play in Rio,” Hernandez said in an interview with TyC Sports. “I know he’s going to get angry when he watches this, but he knows how I am.”
Do you still plan on playing in next summer’s Olympics? Yeah. We (Argentina) qualified this summer so we’re going to have a chance to play there (Rio). I’m very happy about that. Will it be your last go-around in the Olympics? Four years is a lot of years. I will be 36 (April 30th) at the beginning of the Olympics so that puts me at 40 for the next ones. That’s a lot of guessing. I’m just taking it year-by-year now.
