It seems like we do this every year, but this might finally be the end of the road for Spurs guard Manu Ginobili. One of the greatest international basketball players to ever live, Ginobili will turn 40 this summer and has shown signs of slowing down over the last few years.
Ginobili hasn’t explicitly said he’s going to retire, but he has told the media that he plans on figuring out what he wants to do once the season ends. Unfortunately for Spurs fans (and, really, basketball fans), his season came to an end on Monday night at the hands of the Warriors, meaning he suddenly has to make a huge decision about his future.
If this is indeed the end of the road, Spurs fans let him know how much they appreciate him. Over the final few minutes that he was in during San Antonio’s Game 4 loss to Golden State, Spurs fans showered him with love.
As he checked out for what could be the last time, the roar from the Spurs faithful was deafening.
