Ginobili Impressed With Former Spur Oberto’s play with Athens


Former member of the 2007 San Antonio Spurs championship team Fabricio Oberto has been doing well so far with Athens of Cordoba that former teammate Manu Ginobili may want him back with the team. Ginobili jokingly  tweeted to Oberto asking if he could get out of his current contract.

Una pregunta @obricio7… Tenés cláusula de rescisión?? Te traigo de nuevo, eh! (@manuginobili) (Question Oberto… do you have an out clause? I'd bring you back!)

While Manu is joking with Oberto about leaving his team, a dream come true going back to the first team that gave him a chance at being a professional basketball player, he's certainly having a good season so far. 

Argentinean website,, is reporting Oberto scored 18 points (9-10 FG shooting), 8 rebounds, and 7 assists in 26 minutes. Oberto was always known as a player who'd play with passion and energy and these statistics from his second game shouldn't be surprising. He's living a dream come true with what he's gone through and you could say returning to Argentina to play a sport he loves is somewhat of a "fairy tale ending" for him.

Check out highlights from Oberto and his team Athens de Cordoba.
