Bulwark. Fundamental piece of the unforgettable Golden Generation . “The soul within El Alma.” Leader. Talent. Claw. Sacrifice. Gloria. History. All those words and many more have been used to talk about Chapu. Andrés Nocioni is, along with his friend Carlos “El Lancha” Delfino , the most important basketball player in history in Santa Fe. Retired since 2017, this gringo from Villa Gobernador Galvez made his home in General Pico, where he played between 1997 and 1999. There, the most important thing he did was, paradoxically, off the court: meet Paula, his wife and mother of his three children.
While thinking about Nocioni is synonymous with remembering the great milestones of the Manu Ginóbili selection, his achievements do not stay there. Chapu was recognized as the most valuable player in European basketball several times, before and after his important step in the NBA , which also saw him shine , with the T-shirts from the Bulls, the Kings and the Sixers.
About his indelible footprints on the celestial and white shirt, recently, the star of basketball spoke on an Instagram live for his followers, and he recalled: “I think I gave different things to the National Team, which each player gave him something different. We were too talented with Manu, with Scola... spectacular heads like Pepe Sanchez , Pablo Prigioni, and I tried to give him something else. EvENTUALLY, I GAVE IT TO ALL THE TEAMS. Realizing the place you have in each team is very important. I think, from my heart, I knew how to find my place in the Argentine National Team.”
Luis Scola often repeats that it causes him grace when many people say that Chapu Nocioni did not stand out for his talent. The thing is that his temperament, his physical potency, his claw, his eggs were so large that they seemed to leave the technical conditions in the background . But when he was playing in Union of Sao Tome, he was seen by those who know and took him to play in the National Basketball League. In 1995 he was debuting in Racing, at only 15 years old. Is there a chance to achieve something like that without talent?
In the Club Sportivo Independiente of the aforementioned General Pico was his main stage in Argentina, but it did not last so long. Chapu's unforgettable career in Europe began in 1999. Race that started at Tau Cerámica and ended in 2017 at the giant Real Madrid. In both teams it was idol.
His wanderings in the old continent were interrupted by “an 8-year-old walk” that stuck between 2004 and 2012. In that period he was, after Ginóbili, the main Argentine exponent . in the NBA . It brought, from the United States, wholesale anecdotes and friendships with monsters like Kobe Bryant.
