At 35 years old, you might think Manu Ginobili is thinking about calling it quits. For now, he says he might have a season or more in him. When answering questions on ManuGinobili.com, a fan asked if he'd play a few more years and he answered After that I have many years, but will I add more? I am only 35 still! For now I would say I got a couple of years that I'm going to play, but I'll see when I finish the season. With an injury plagued season already, the speculation has been this may be the very last season we see Ginobili in a Spurs uniform. It seems that he's not even thinking about calling it quits until after this season. He'll be a free agent and no one knows what his asking price may be if he wants to play after this season. It is a good sign that Manu isn't thinking about retiring so it won't effect his game on the court or have him try harder than he should with it being a final season. He's the main catalyst off the bench for the team and his versatility is what makes the team dangerous. If Ginobili can play at his current pace for the next 2-3 years, it would be a no brainer for the Spurs to keep him at the right price. For now, it seems that Manu is content just focusing on this season. While injuries are a main issue for some players' decision to give it another year or retire, the outcome of the season is equally as important for the Spurs. With the team looking to win their fifth championship in franchise history, a title in June might be the fairy tale ending Tim Duncan needs to put a stamp on his Hall of Fame career which may influence Ginobili's decision also. As long as Manu is thinking about this season, the Spurs' chances to win a title are at their best.
