Sports Illustrated's most recent cover features Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker and Tim Duncan as The Biggest 3. The Heat can't be thrilled.
BEST OF MAXIM
Spurs guard Manu Ginobili is 36 years of age, and next season would be his 12th. Ginobili will be a free agent this summer, and when asked by Rachel Nichols, said he wasn’t sure if he’d return next season.
Having battled injuries the past few seasons, and his game clearly not the same as it was years ago, Ginobili was asked if he might hang it up and retire?

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- The roar begins to build as soon as Gregg Popovich points over to the bench, usually midway through the first quarter.
Manu Ginobili rises and so does the excitement level inside the AT&T Center. Of course, the anticipation is ambiguous because no one knows what the San Antonio Spurs' veteran guard will do once he gets on the court.
He could miss a wild...
Old? Yes, the Spurs definitely are that. Too old? They don’t think so.
As Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili drag their mid-30s bodies into an NBA Finals matchup with LeBron James and the Heat, much of the story has revolve around the Spurs players’ ages. Duncan is 37. Ginobili is 35. Tony Parker just turned 31 less than a month ago, although he feels older because he came into the...
The San Antonio Spurs have won four NBA titles in the last 14 years. One important common denominator of each title?

As much as it might seem that the San Antonio Spurs are not aging, Father Time eventually gets everybody. Tim Duncan and Tony Parker still going strong, but Manu Ginobili has been slowing down over the past few years, with numerous injuries piling up. Ginobili was asked last night after the game whether or not [...]
Stephen Jackson is a sensitive soul, and just a year ago he admitted that Spurs coach Gregg Popovich was the only coach in the NBA who could “handle” him. The 35-year-old “Captain Jack” is known for his clutch shots and rangy defense, but he has burned bridges throughout the league in his 13-year career.
Last season, Jackson seemed to have rediscovered the home he never should...
Personally, I’m still trying to figure out how San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili made this pass to Matt Bonner in the second quarter of the 2013 NBA Finals.
He must be some passing wizards of sorts…
Manu’s Nice Pass to Bonner [@BuzzFeed Sports]
MIAMI (AP) -- Manu Ginobili said before the NBA Finals started that Kawhi Leonard was San Antonio's only hope of containing LeBron James.
The awesome responsibility of defending the world's best player didn't faze the second-year swingman in the least.
Leonard was the point man in San Antonio's defense of James, who scored a playoff-low 18 points in the Spurs'...

This past season the Miami Heat seemed to take the next step to becoming the next great Dynasty after “The Streak”, and we saw yet another dominating season by the best player in the world.
