First of all, I'm going to write about José Manuel Calderón. Jose Manuel Calderón is one of the best players of basketball of Spain and the world. He was born on 28th September in Villa Nueva de la Serena, he is a real pride for the city and all the Autonomous Community of Extremadura. His main inspiration for basketball came from his father, who used to play basketball for his hometown's team. José Calderón used to enjoy seeing his father play, he accompanied him to his games.
At present he is a basketball player of LA Lakers and he has retired from the Spanish national team, where he won a lot of trophies. For instance, he won the 2006 FIBA World Championship, the silver metal in the 2008 Olympics and another silver medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics. In 2011 he won a golden medal at the Eurobasket in Lituania. I've seen many games of Calderón in the Spanish national team and he plays so well, he is an incredible player! It is a pity that he is no longer going to play for the Spanish national team, although he only wants to concentrate in the LA Lakers.
