This is the santiagueño Gabriel Deck, which is shining on the parquet. A basketball player who, after passing through European clubs, goes for much more and joins the NBA. This high performance athlete was born in Colonia Dora, Santiago del Estero , on February 8, 1995. From the beginning he knew that he would be engaged in basketball and did not stop until he fulfilled the dream of any player.
At 1.98 meters high, he plays in the eaf position, but also plays as a wing-pivot. After going through many clubs, he became the second Argentine to be part of the NBA this season. The first is the Cordovan base Facundo Campazzo, which is currently part of the Denver Nuggets squad. Deck left Real Madrid, where he was playing before the end of this season, to give an unexpected boost to his career. After his time in the Euroleague, he joined as Oklahoma City Thunder player for the next three years.
In the national ranking he is the fourteenth Argentine to play in the most prestigious basketball league in the world. Total pride! Before this santiagueño fulfils his dream, there were thirteen Argentines who passed through the American league.
Among them, members of the golden generation : Juan Ignacio “Pepe” Sanchez (Philadelphia 76ers., Atlanta Hawks and Detroit Pistons), Ruben Wolkowyski (Seattle Supersics and Boston Celtics), Emanuel Gin & oacute; bili (San Antonio Spurs), Carlos Delfino (Detroit Pistons, Toronto Raptors, Milwaukee Bucks and Houston Rockets), Andres Nocioni (Chicago Bulls, Sacramento Kings and Philadelphia 76ers.), Fabricio Oberto (San Antonio Spurs, San Antonio Spurs, Washington Wizards and Portland Trail Blazers), Walter Herrmann (Charlotte Bobcats and Detroit Pistons), Luis Scola (Houston Rockets, Phoenix Suns, Indiana Pacers, Toronto Raptors and Brooklyn Nets).
Argentines Pablo Prigioni (New York Knicks, Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Clippers), Nicolás Laprovitola (San Antonio Spurs), Nicolás Laprovitola (San Antonio Spurs), Nicolas also made their way into the American league. Brussino (Dallas Mavericks and Atlanta Hawks) and Patrick Garino (Orlando Magic).
All these names are part of the history of basketball, because of their high performance. And, to them, they are added , after Facu Campazzo, the sensational Gabriel Deck.
Deck's assense is huge news for national and Latin American basketball, and a hope for everyone who dreams of living in this discipline. The alero connected with his talent at Quimsa de Santiago del Estero, his first love and with whom he won a South American Club League (2008), a Super 8 (2014) and a National Basketball League (2014-15).
After his great triumphs from Santiago, he had a fruitful passage through San Lorenzo, where he stood out for his magic. That season served as a springboard to reach European basketball. In Boedo he won two other LNB (2016-17 and 2017-18), a Super 4 Tournament (2017) and a League of the Americas (2018), in which he was the MVP player of the final.
In the current season, Santiagueño averages 8.8 points (52.4% field, 40.7% triples), 3.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 24.0 minutes in the Euroleague; and 10.0 goals (63.3% doubles), 4.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 23.1 minutes in the ACB League. These numbers reflect the ability and power of the player heading to the United States.
But, despite having shown several colors on his chest and having different shoes T-shirts, there is a combination that is not forgotten. With the azure and white of the Argentine team, Deck won several awards and won the respect of the adepts .
He played at the 2013 U19 World Basketball Championship. That same year he was FIBA 3x3 U18 World Championship in Jakarta, Indonesia, being his most important tournament and youth title. He also played the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and the FIBA Americas Championship 2017 held in Argentina. But his real award was the gold medal at the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima, the same year he became runner-up in the World Cup for Seniors in China.
Let's keep shining, champ!
