Manu Ginobili is an NBA legend — four rings, two-time All-NBA, 2008 Sixth Man of the Year, two-time All-Star, respected by everyone.
But in his native Argentina he all but walks on water. The man who led Argentina to world titles and an Olympic gold medal is Mesi big. Which is why in Buenos Aires someone made a tribute court for Ginobili.
Ginobili even showed up and signed the court.
Playing a pickup game on this court is now on my bucket list.
The Spurs will be retiring Ginobili’s number in March.
