GOLD
for
Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico did not fail to fill expectations as one of the favorites and was able to win the 2008 Centrobasket Championship crown with an undefeated record.
The Championship, played at the Mexican cities of Cancun and Chetumal, Quintana-Roo, closed with the game against the U.S. Virgin Islands, where Puerto
Rico the game, 87-70, and the title. This is their ninth in the region and the third of the last five, interestingly; these last have all been in Mexican soil. In 2001,
Puerto Rico won the championship played at Toluca, Mexico. In 2003, they won at Culiacán, Mexico, and now in 2008 at Cancun, Quintana-Roo, Mexico.
It was not the game of point guard José Juan Barea, the championship's MVP, who pulled through to clinch the victory and the Gold, but the sharp long distance
sniping from the team that cleared the way and, in the end, were the killing stroke for the U.S. Virgin Islands. Yet, the U.S. Virgin Islands game can not be
dismissed easily as they have more than proved with this championship, the second in a row where they have captured the Silver, that they are a force to be
reckoned in the Caribbean.
Team Puerto Rico connected 15 out of 27 long distance shots, more than 50% accuracy, which accounted to something a little more than a third of their total
game points. The most consistent player from this area was Carmelo Antrone Lee, shooting an impressive 5 out 7 from behind the 3-point line, followed closely
by Carlos Arroyo who scored on 5 of 10 attempts from the same area. The closing scores for the games stand thus: Puerto Rico vs. Costa Rica, 85-68; Puerto
Rico vs. Cuba, 103-90; Puerto Rico vs. Panamá, defending champion of the previous edition and unable to advance to the award round, 107-102; and lastly Puerto
Rico vs. Dominican Republic, the other favorites for the event, 76-74.
In all the victories, Jose Juan Barea played an important role; he was the man behind the machine, scoring, directing and otherwise having a hand at controlling
the tempo of the games. Meanwhile, strong forward Angelo Reyes came through as the man to overcome and fear under the basket all throughout the
championship. At this event were at stake 4 spots for the upcoming FIBA Americas Championship of 2009. These were to be awarded to the best four at the
Centrobasket, e.g. Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Dominican Republic and Cuba. Team Dominican Republic, who had with them rising star Al Horford, of the
Atlanta Hawks, and Francisco Garcia, small forward for Sacramento Kings, were defeated by the Team US Virgin Islands, 83-74, on their first outing and Mexico
was unable to get to the awards phase in this championship and thus was left without a chance to go to the 2009 FIBA Americas Championship. They finished
fifth, Panama achieved sixth and El Salvador and Costa Rica seventh and eight respectively.

Carlos Delfino and Carlos Arroyo, who were once
team mates with the Detroit Pistons, have both
decided to part ways with the NBA and
make their way at the European Leagues,
landing juicy multiannual contracts.
The Argentinean shooting guard, who has
also played with the Toronto Raptors, chose
to accept an offer from Russian Basketball Club
BC Khimki, one of the best teams within the
Euroleague. Meanwhile, Puerto Rican guard decided
to leave for Israel and join the prestigious basketball
Club Macabbi Tel Aviv de Israel.
Carlos Delfino
Both will be drawing six figure incomes plus assuring
for themselves regular positions, this comes in contrast
with their roles with the Toronto Raptors and Orlando
Magic respectively.

Ex-NBA star, Scottie Pippen, who once was part of the
nigh unstoppable duo with Michael Jordan at the Chicago
Bulls, will play a game with the Sundsvall Dragons of the
Swedish League next January, 2009.
Leaked from the capital city of Spain, come good news;
basketball club Real Madrid has signed veteran point
guard Pepe Sánchez. The team has been trying to
make this happen for some time without success while
Pepe played for Etosa Alicante, Unicaja de Málaga and
FC Barcelona of the ACB league.
The game will be played on January 11th, 2009, between
Sundsvall Dragons and the Akropol. Pippen will play due
to his friendship with Mike Wilhelm, assistant coach to
the Chicago Bulls and in charge of player scouting along
with Anders Ohrn, president of the Dragons.
Lefty Sánchez, who announced his retirement from the
National Team of Argentina in 2007, after playing an
important part during his nine year stint, also played
with the Detroit Pistons, Atlanta Hawks and Philadelphia
76ers, but was never allowed to grow as was the case
when he played for Temple University in the NCAA.

Pippen, who is 42 years old, has won 6 NBA championships
with the Bulls and two Gold Olympic Medals (Barcelona'92
and Atlanta'96).
