NBA News: Spurs Legend And Soon To Be Hall Of Famer Manu Ginobili To Retire After This Season
Emmanuel “Manu” Ginobili is highly regarded as one of the best European player who made a name for himself in the NBA. Ginobili is already in his 14th season in the league and as he stated before, this might be his final year.
Ginobili Era Has Started
There is no doubt that Manu Ginobili is a first ballot Hall of Famer. His credentials speak for itself and his impact in the game of basketball is irreplaceable. The Argentinian star was drafted way back 1999 but entered the league in 2002. During his hay day, Ginobili used to punish the opposing team's defense with his relentless attacks. The multiple All-Star is versatile to say the list. Ginobili was able to combine European style of playing and the aggressive nature of street ball.
The Spurs shooting guard is also a 4-time NBA Champion and an Olympic Gold Medalist. Ginobili is the main catalyst of Team Argentina when they beat the USA in the Olympics eliminating them from the tournament. At that point of time, Manu Ginobili was getting a lot of recognition. Team USA has always been considered as the greatest Team in Basketball but was shattered when they were outplayed by Ginobili’s team. This is also the very reason why Team USA is more serious in acquiring players who represent the country.
The End Of An Era
Technically, Ginobili has been teasing the fans for almost two years right now. However, as Ginobili stated before, leaving the game of basketball is hard to do since it is already a part of his life. If this will be his last year, fans will surely miss him but there’s also a guarantee that he won’t be going away from the Spurs organization. Popovich and Kobe Bryant describes Ginobili as a fierce competitor and one of the smartest player in the history of the game.
Lastly, among the numerous contributions that Ginobili added to the game, his patented euro-step will be synonymous with his name. Every single player is doing it right now and they are seeing Ginobili as the originator of the explosive move.
