Argentina, the winner of the 2004 Olympic tournament and the 2019 World Cup silver medalist, will begin the games in Tokyo against reigning world champion Spain, Luka Doncic’s Slovenia and host Japan in Group C. The top two teams from each of the three groups will automatically advance to the quarterfinals while two third-placed teams will also qualify based on ranking criteria. The full roster of Argentina is as follows: Point guards: Facundo Campazzo: 1.80 – 30 – Denver Nuggets. Nicolas Laprovittola: 1.88 – 31- free agent. Luca Vildoza: 1.89 – 25 – New York Knicks. Shooting guards: Nicolas Brussino: 2.05 – 27 – Granada. Leandro Bolmaro: 2.00 – 20 – Barcelona. Small Forwards: Gabriel Deck: 1.98 – 26 – Oklahoma City Thunder. Patricio Garino: 1.98 – 28 – free agent. Juan Pablo Vaulet: 1.99 – 25 – AEK Athens. Power forwards: Luis Scola: 2.07 – 41 – Varese. Centers: Marcos Delia: 2.09 – 29 – Trieste. Tayavek Gallizzi: 2.04 – 28 – Regatas Corrientes. Francisco Cáffaro: 2.14 – 21 – Virginia University.
On Monday against Nigeria, Vildoza shot 2-for-5 from 3-point land, finishing with eight points. He was a respectable minus-4 in the blowout. Nuggets point guard, Facundo Campazzo had a much rougher time of it (0-for-7, 0-for-4 from 3-point range). “[Vildoza] needs time to know the NBA concept, NBA rules’’ Hernandez said. “I’m sure he will play really well. It’s a great, great selection. When a player like him plays in the top league of Euroleague like Baskonia, that means he’s ready for the NBA. The only thing he needs is time. Because he’s young (25 years old). The Knicks will be really happy in the future with him.”
He finished off the season on a high note, averaging 16.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists in nine games during the month of May. His run in the final month included a career-high 37 points in the regular-season finale on May 16. Despite his strong run to end the season, Anthony earned just one first-team vote and 38 second-team votes for 40 total points. He received the 12th most points in the final voting, finishing behind Denver Nuggets guard Facundo Campazzo. Based on his reaction on social media, Anthony didn’t agree with the voting.
“Everything is much more tactical,” Campazzo added. “They gave us a book with a large number of pages which explains each player’s tendencies, the plays he makes, a deep analysis of the opponent. A player is studied during the season but it’s all more detailed in the playoffs. They analyze from which side he likes to go outside, how he likes to express himself offense. In defense, you also have to know in which kind of play he’s more potent. You have to study that and when you go to see the scouting video, the assistant asks you questions to find out if you’ve been working on the material they give you. And you have to take all of that on the court later. That’s something new for me.”
Facundo Campazzo: “There are certain freedoms in playing here, you can take a risk, if you leave the plan a bit and it goes well, they don’t tell you anything. But if it doesn’t… well, they let you know. They always advise that you follow everything perfectly. Because everything is well-studied. Now I have the book on Phoenix in hand and I have to study Chris Paul. They give you all the tactical tools and then you have to put your intensity and energy into it. With those elements, when we do it well together, it allows us to carry out a series like the one we won with Portland.”
