“I know that Manu is like adviser of the team and they are rotating it: it is entering a company and they are passing it through Marketing, Finance, Operations, Logistics… They are giving you the ability to understand the operation from the top down. Have you had the opportunity, beyond seeing a practice, to take on a project with a particular player, or is it still in the initial stage of global learning?” Álvaro Martín asked Oberto, Manu’s former teammate at Spurs and in the Argentine national team and a close friend of the Bahiense. “What the counselor does is not only that the player understands the culture of the San Antonio Spurs as he lived it (everything to do: the details, how to get to the practice, how to get out of the practice…), but who also knows the whole environment, the community. And that adds up a lot to shorten steps”, replied the former pivot, champion in 2007 in the Texan team, led by Gregg Popovich and with Tim Duncan and Tony Parker as teammates.
“He is always thinking one step ahead; That’s how he did it as a player. He puts that same formula off the court to see how it helps. They are such icons Popovich, Manu, Duncan… Tony Parker, who goes from one place to another as an ambassador of education in Paris, doing a lot of things… They are such unique personalities that they will always do better what they play , and that is what San Antonio wants”, added Oberto, who in addition to being a commentator on ESPN and NBA League Pass, works as an analyst for the San Antonio Spurs and the Austin Spurs, a team in the Development League (G-League). .
