For a start, I am going to write about José Manuel Calderón. He was born in Villanueva de la Serena, Spain on 28th September, 1981. He is a prefessional basketball player; he plays so well that he is often called Mr. Catering. Nowadays, he plays in Los Angeles Lakers of the NBA as base and wears the number 5. Since 2009 he has collaborated with UNICEF.
On the one hand, he has played in the Toronto Raptors,Detroit Piston, Dallas Mavericks, and New York Knicks. He also played in Spanish teams before he went to NBA.
On the other hand, he has won three Olympic medals, silver in 2008 and in 2012 and bronze this year. With the Spanish national team he also has too many important awards. He won four Eurobasket titles, a gold among them and another gold in the FIBA World Championship in 2011, which was celebrated in Lithuania.
All in all, he is the fourth Spanish that plays in the NBA, after Fernando Martín, Pau Gasol and Raúl López. I think he is such a great player. He might have a bigger impact in LA, because he decided to quit the Spanish national team to concentrate more in his team.
