Argentina Olympic Basketball Team: Breaking Down Most Impactful Players

Team Argentina is led by three players familiar to NBA fans: Manu Ginobili, Luis Scola and Carlos Delfino. 

The team won the Olympic gold medal in 2004, bronze four years later, and finished third in the 2009 FIBA Americas Championship before winning it all in 2011. This is the third Olympics that the bulk of the team has played together and their experience makes them a formidable competitor in this year's tournament.

If they were playing three-on-three, the Argentines might have a shot at Olympic gold this year. But they are not, and their lack of depth should keep them out of the final.

In a recent exhibition game, Argentina lost to Team USA 86-80. If Scola had not missed six free throws, the outcome might have been different.   

This is a very good team, which I see winning the bronze medal.

Let's take a look at the key players on the Argentina squad.
