The San Antonio Spurs retired Manu Ginobili’s number on Thursday night, and now his No. 20 will live in the rafters at AT&T Center forever.
The Spurs held a ceremony for Ginobili for the occasion, and of course in attendance were myriad former teammates including Tim Duncan and Tony Parker. Along with Gregg Popovich, all got up to speak about Ginobili’s career.
Duncan perhaps had the best moment of the night when he told the story about San Antonio selecting Ginobili with the 57th pick in the 1999 NBA Draft.
The rest of the tribute was pretty great, including Parker cracking on Ginobili for his thinning hair. Spurs fans even got into a chant of “Olé, Olé, Olé” in his honor.
Ginobili really was one of the all-time greats.
