Leo Montero, with Manu in the background.
“Sports here are not profitable. If I did something like this here, it would be as a hobby and to dedicate a lot of time to it, and today I don’t want to be 100% with anything. The day you want to do it, I think Argentina would be a good option because if you make a mistake, it would be the cheapest place to do the experience. But if we are talking about investments, yes, I think it would be better in the NBA or in the MLS. The American sport is the one that year after year generates profits, “he said in statements to Infobae, one of the four journalistic media that had access to the interview in Santa Isabel.
There, among other topics, he also spoke about his memory of Diego Maradona, who today marks the first anniversary of his death.
“Maradona showed me an almost irrational generosity. He liked the NBA a lot, he identified with the San Antonio Spurs … I owe him a debt of gratitude. I had liked having more private talks with Diego, “said Ginobili.
On the other hand, the diamond brand became a new sponsor of the Argentine basketball team since this year and after moving away from Los Pumas, almost immediately after the scandal of the xenophobic and discriminatory tweets of some members of the Argentine team.
