    Post Spurs Manu Ginobili Announces Retirement

    https://www.hoopsrumors.com/2018/08/...etirement.html

    Longtime Spurs guard Manu Ginobili has announced his retirement from the NBA. The team issued a press release today confirming the news, while Ginobili published his own statement via Twitter.

    “Today, with a wide range of feelings, I’m announcing my retirement from basketball,” Ginobili wrote. “IMMENSE GRATITUDE to everyone (family, friends, teammates, coaches, staff, fans) involved in my life in the last 23 years. It’s been a fabulous journey. Way beyond my wildest dreams.”

    It’s the end of an era in San Antonio, where the Spurs have now seen Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard, and Ginobili depart within the last two-plus years.

    Ginobili, 41, was the 57th overall pick in the 1999 draft, making him one of the best second-round picks in NBA history. After being drafted, he played overseas for three more seasons, then joined the Spurs in 2002, spending the next 16 years with the franchise.

    Over the course of his NBA career, Ginobili appeared in 1,057 regular season contests, averaging 13.3 PPG, 3.8 APG, and 3.5 RPG. He also played in 218 more postseason contests, winning four championships with the Spurs. A two-time All-Star and two-time All-NBA player, the Argentinian shooting guard was the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year in 2008.

    Ginobili, who had been the NBA’s second-oldest active player and now becomes one of just seven players to spend his entire career of 16 years or more with a single time, will eventually be a Hall-of-Famer.

    He had quite the career! Duncan, Parker, and Ginobili are all either retired or gone from the team now -- the end of the Spurs era. Coach Popovich is the last one left.

    I always respected the Spurs' org and have a few cards in my PC of each of those players.

    Yeah this is easily the worst they've looked since Pop took over.

    Is he a HOFer?

    He should at least get something for creating the Euro-step.

    General consensus is yes. International success, integral part of several championship teams, very influential player.

    I was a huge Manu fan back in the day and have always respected the way he approached the game. What an amazing basketball career he's had. Here's one of my favorite Manu cards, which I owned at one point! (before needing to sell for life reasons)
