The Spurs gave Manu Ginobili a great retirement gift – his 2018-19 salary.

Soon, they’ll honor him in another way.

Spurs release:

The San Antonio Spurs today announced that they will retire Manu Ginobili’s No. 20 jersey on Thursday, March 28 when the Silver and Black host the Cleveland Cavaliers at 7:30 p.m. CDT. A special postgame ceremony honoring Ginobili will take place

I’m a little surprised this isn’t happening Jan. 14, when the Spurs host Tony Parker and the Hornets. But perhaps Ginobili has scheduling issues. It’s only truly important he is there.

Ginobili is one of the greatest Spurs of all-time. With Tim Duncan and Parker, Ginobili was instrumental in bringing San Antonio four championships. He was extremely productive, and his flair made him a fan favorite. This honor is very well-deserved.
