Delfino had a great game today in a pretty weird game between Spain and Argentina. Spain won 83-76, but Delfino had stats of 16-9-7 + 5 steals. As said, the game was really weird since Argentina is facing a wave of bad luck which led to strange rotations. Nocioni didn't play (still recovering), Oberto (starting C) and González (2nd C) had mild injuries yesterday so they didn't play either, same as Cantero (2nd PG) who will probably miss world cup. This last one is the most worrying injury since the 2nd PG (Figueroa) was injured 1 month ago and Cantero was a last minute replacement. Therefore, the only PG in the team is Prigioni, who got out of the game because of PF at the beginning of 3rd quarter, which led to Delfino playing PG for a big part of the game. Thus, Argentina played most of the game with PFs playing as C, and SF (Delfino and Jasen) as PG.

However, the most important aspect of Delfino game was that he dried Ricky Rubio with an asphyxiating D. Rubio only made 2 points while guarded by Delfino.

Another good player for Argentina's team was Scola (26-8-2 and.... 2 3pt!!!), but both Scola and Delfino felt the effort towards the end of the game: both of them were doubled and even tripled by Spain D in the last 5 mins and Scola missed his 6 last FT, while Delfino had 2 TO in the last minute.

For Spain, the best players were Rubio (even when not scoring the guy is an assist machine and one of the fastest players I've ever seen), Navarro and Felipe Reyes (for many people, he's better than Marc Gasol, really strange he doesn't play in an NBA team), who replaced Marc Gasol since 1st quarter due to a mild injury. For those who never saw Ricky Rubio play, pay special attention to this guy, he's simply amazing.

Yesterday, Delfino was elected captain for Argentina's NT at Turkey's Basketball World Cup by all his teammates

Finally, I'll try to get pics of the stadium, it is simply beautiful and teams played under the sky instead of under roof

I like hearing that he had success at PG. If he can be our 3rd stringer in case Jennings/Dooling get hurt, it saves us a roster spot, and it'd give him more of an opportunity to get minutes here as well.

Open air courts? Beautiful! I love to see games played outside.

Good for Delfino. He's a gamer, alot of people don't realize this. He comes to play every day or night. My kind of Baller.

in fact not exactly open air, it has a sliding roof. I did a search and in fact it is a bulls fight arena conditioned for basketball and tennis games from time to time

Thanks for this thread Fabio, I really like Delfino's overall game, he is incredibly versatile and if he can improve his efficiency on offense, then he could be in for a break out year given the opportunity.

If CDR improves his stock this season, I think it would be wise to explore trading him mid season, this would open up more PT for Carlos at back up SG and Moute at SF. I like CDR but I think we'll eventually have to shorten our rotations, and with his cheap contract and talent, he'd be an attractive trade chip. I really like Delfino as our backup SG/SF going forward, his versatility and 3pt shooting really warrants more than 15-20mins per game.

If he can play up to his capabilities on a consistent level for us, were going to be an amazing team. IMO, he is another wild card for the Bucks because i think he is capable of being very good if he can just get that consitency going.

Anyone else besides me love the fact that there are purpose-built Bull fighting stadiums in the world? Awesome. (Although I don't approve of the whole cruelty-to-animals thing)

If Delfino plays anything like he did for the second half of last season, I'll be ecstatic. His defense is underated, and when he's hitting 3's he's an excellent option/compliment to this team. This year I expect his points to drop, but am hoping his assists increase a little.

I bagged him ferociously at the start of last season, but he made me eat my words. I really enjoy the productivity he brings to the team for such a low cost.

Delfino's a champ. I shall shower my love upon him.

PS: Half the Raptors' board's significant others (shocking I know) had crushes on him while he was in Toronto.

You can shower your love on Delfino... I'd prefer to "shower my love" all over Delfino's wife 8-)

Delfino today had 23 points, 6-9 from 3, 2 rebounds, 2 assists and at least a steal or two in a 77-73 win over Brazil. He was the top scorer.

Your starting small forward for the Milwaukee Bucks. No doubt.

I usually don't care for stats abroad, but these are against good teams with NBA starters. Nice to know that Delfino is in good form and is staying in shape. It will be a great battle between him and Maggette for the starting SF spot.

Delfino is still the starter in my books.
