He was a member of the National Basketball Team of Argentina, several teams of the NBA, the ACB League and the Athens Sports Association. Winner of various titles and medals with his selection, he was part of the litter of Argentine players belonging to what was called La Generación Dorada.
At the age of 17 he decided to try his luck in Athens, one of the most traditional clubs in Argentine basketball, and was selected, starting to play professionally at the end of that year. In 1998, after being elected Most Valuable Player of the National League, he was transferred to the Greek Piraeus Olympiacos, starting his European experience that would later take him to the Spanish club TAU Cerámica. After two seasons with the TAU, he was transferred to Pamesa Valencia. In that period he received the Konex Award – Diploma of Merit.
Oberto is fond of playing the guitar, and while he was in Valencia he started taking classes.

On a radio in Valencia he had a program with his then teammates, Federico Kammerichs and Asier García. The program was called Everything but basketball and enjoyed great popularity, having many famous guests of Spanish sport.

He started playing with the Argentine national team shortly before his 20th birthday, in 1995, and since then he had played 70 matches, and won several competitions, including the gold medal at the 2004 Olympic Games.
