After 11 seasons and 3 NBA championships, it’s hard to imagine the Spurs without either Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobli, Tony Parker, or head coach Gregg Popovich. This GIF is spectacular in that it shows just how they’ve aged in the decade plus they’ve been together, and how breathtaking Manu’s glorious mane of hair used to be.
