Manu Ginobili’s career will be defined by winning.
He has the chance to the greatest international player of all time…who doesn’t start for his NBA team.
That’s why it was only fitting, that the player who is most known for coming off the bench, would find himself in the starting line-up for the biggest...
It's all right in front of Tim Duncan now, and the big fella can feel it.
You can tell when he broke out that little spin move in the paint in Game 5 on Sunday night, a nimble little display of footwork that has mostly been in moth balls for the past four or five seasons.
You can tell by the elevation he got on a first-quarter dunk, one of the most emphatic he's had in...

In the segment, Ginobili tells a story about the time that he faked out Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich by pretending to take a shot at inopportune time.
As Manu eventually passed the ball to Tony Parker, Manu decided look...
Entering Game Five, the question among Spurs fans was just how much Manu Ginobili had left in his tank. Was the Ginobili who averaged 7.5 points per game and shot 34.5 percent and seemed like he was forcing everything to do what he used to be able to do was the Ginobili of now and the Ginobili the Spurs would have for the remainder of this series.
Or would it be the Ginobili...

Let’s play the “What If?” game.
What if Tony Parker‘s last-second shot at the end of regulation in Game 6 found its way inside the net? Well, the Spurs would have won their fifth NBA title in the Tim Duncan era, Parker likely would’ve won his second Finals MVP and ESPN would feature nothing but “LeBron’s Tarnished Legacy” headlines until Tim Tebow is named the starting...

Distant history tells us that the Spurs won’t recover from their Game Six loss.
June 7, 1978.
35 years and 13 days separate the Spurs from the last team to win Game Seven on the road. The 1978 Washington Bullets overcame the Seattle Supersonics in a strange anticlimax to a great series. It wasn’t a game decided by the stars, as both teams’ leading scorers fouled out and watched...
