Andres Nocioni's ESPN column: "A negative road trip"

Hi, everybody, Maybe this will be of some interest to some Sixers fans. (It sure will be for Chapuforyou and Noceone.)   Chapu has a column of his own in the Argentine ESPN website version. It's...

Delfino will be out for two weeks

Here's the explanation that Carlos is giving in his website about his injury and why he must be out for such a long time.

Delfino's little brother also plays basketball

Not that I'm trying to associate him to the Bucks: one Delfino should bhe enough for Milwaukee. But here is Lucio Delfino, Carlos' little brother. He's 13 and he's playing for the state team of Santa Fe in the U13 Argentinean National Championship. According to the article, he played two games (12 and 18 min): he had 6 pts y 6 rb in the first one and 7 pts and 2 rb in the second one. The Milwaukee Delfino is quoted saying he told his brother "to have fun and make friends".

Delfino's Bucks season preview

In Spanish. It has some interesting parts here and there, like for example when he describes his new teammates. I don't have time to translate it now. If nobody in his website does (it has a version in English that takes time in updating), I'll try to do it soon enough. Here's an advance. "We kept the core and we know how to do things. Now we must find the better team chemistry in and out of the court, something that takes time but is important to make things happen as we want them to. Sharing the ball, making an extra pass, winning a game with defense and celebrate our teammates’ good plays are, in my opinion, details that make good teams become great teams. This is now the challenge for us because of the new faces and changes of personnel, although we keep a same concept and structure. "

As strange as it can sound, click the photo on the left top corner and you'll find a happy Delfino, holding his MVP trophy of the Efes Pilsen Cup, a preparatory tournament for Fiba’s World Championship starting next week. In the final game he leaded with 30 points Argentina‘s victory in overtime over Turkey. Are more trophys on the way?
