AX Armani Exchange Milan latest “All Access” installment features newcomer Luis Scola. Nearing 40, the Argentinian forward made his EuroLeague comeback and hopes to enjoy playing in Europe’s premier competition and Italy at this stage of his career. He touched on many more topics including the Argentinian national team, how he picked basketball over football, NBA and his lengthy tenure with Tau Ceramica.
“I don’t know what to expect, I’ll work hard, I’ll play hard, I’ll try to have fun. The most important thing for me is to have fun. At this point in my career,” noted Scola, “I don’t have to do these things, to stay on the court, doing things, make some more money. These things are beyond me. I do it because I think it will be fun, it gives me a reason to be happy every day.”
“For two or three years I didn’t even think about playing in 2020, it was a long shot until two or three years ago. Not only because of my age, but also because we had to qualify and it is always difficult,” he said on the upcoming Olympic Games, “Even in the years when we had our great team, we always struggled to qualify. It is difficult in the Americas. You have the USA, Brazil, Canada, Puerto Rico. They are all teams that play for the few spots available. Now I’m so close, I don’t want to look too far ahead, I try not to do it and just think about what I have here. When that time comes, of course, for me it will be special.”
