Stalin Ortiz <- who could give him a name "Stalin"? <!-- sSmile -->[img]{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif[/img]<!-- sSmile --> I see that Argentina is not playing with their best squad. Is Sebastian Ginobili a relative of Manu Ginobili?
Yes Sebastian is his brother, i was watching Argentina's game for a while before going to class and he seems good

You would be surprised the kind of names around here, in Venezuela we have two people whose name is Superman, we have Jeffersons, Kennedys Nixons.
I wonder if he will be as good as Manu.

Really weird names <!-- sBiggrin -->[img]{SMILIES_PATH}/biggrin.gif[/img]<!-- sBiggrin --> is there any reason why they are given?
Just because with the oil boom people just want an american cool name for their children while they sound horrible. Before that they were a lot of greek names like Achilles and that kind of stuff

Today's Matches

3rd Place: Venezuela - Argentina

Final: Brazil - Uruguay

BTW All four semifinalists qualify to the 'Torneo de las Americas'
I am sorry for Venezuela Manuel. Looking at the final result looks like it was a close game. Good luck with Argentina then <!-- s:thup: -->[img]{SMILIES_PATH}/thup.gif[/img]<!-- s:thup: -->
ooooh Unlucky Venezuala Manuel. Semi final is still good I guess.

And I saw that Brazil won it but it wasnt broadcasted in Europe I dont think. Did anyone watch the match?
I also didn't see the match but I know that Machado who will play for Zalgiris next season was top scorer. And again Venezuela unlucky to lose against Argentina in 3rd place game.
The tournament ended yesterday

3rd Place: Venezuela 78-95 Argentina

Final: Brazil 92-61

Like i said before the four semifinalists will go to the America Tournament that would be to qualify to the Olympics. Also the top three (Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay) will go the Pan-American Games. Venezuela may enter the Pan-American games taking the Brazilian spot since they already are the hosts since they are in Rio.

Which Machado Vilius??
[quote name='"manuel23_ve":40db0']Which Machado Vilius??[/quote]

Marcelinho Machado. Check Žalgiris thread in Lithuanian forum.
Manuel, bad luck... You'd expect that after beating Brazil Venezuela would get a silver, losing to Argentina... It went all the other way round

Don't Paraguay, Ecuador, Bolivia and Peru take part?
