After falling to the United States on Friday 109-83 in perhaps the last time the Argentina "Golden Generation" of Manu Ginobili, Luis Scola, Carlos Delfino, Andres Nocioni, and Pablo Prigioni will face the U.S. in Olympic play, San Antonio Spurs guard Ginobili revealed to a London AP writer (via NBA.com) that he was unsure if the 2012 London games were most likely his last with Argentina.

Manu Ginobili says he does not know if he will continue playing for Argentina after these Olympics.

The 35-year-old Ginobili isn't sure how he will feel in two years for the next World Cup of Basketball, or even if he will still be playing at all.

Though this isn't a surprise considering his age and knowing that in four more years he'll be 39 years old, Ginobili is in a different era of his life right now. If you follow him on Twitter, he's a guy who enjoys spending time with his two children, as he writes about them or tweets pictures of them. He already has to spend 82-nights a year away from them with his day job in the NBA, would he want to miss out on their childhood for the next four summers training with the Argentine National team?

One would think not. 

Sunday might be the last time Spurs fans, and even the world might see this "Golden Generation" team take the floor once more as they battle for the Bronze medal against Russia. The tip-off will be at 5:00 AM CS, this could possibly be the last time this group of teammates take the floor together. You might want to set your alarm for an early wake-up time, it could be the closing of a remarkable chapter in basketball.
