Is it me or does it feel like a ghost has taken over Manu Ginobili´s body this year? You hardly notice he´s there but every once inawhle you hear a door slam or the wind blow where it shouldn´t be. That´s Manu this year! On the season he´s averaging just 23.3 mpg/12.4 ppg/3.6 rpg/4.5 apg/.448 FG/.797 FT/1.5 3pm/1.5 spg. Numbers that aren´t bad at all but if you own him this year, you know what I´m saying. Quiet as a mouse! However, with Tony Parker now going down for the count, or at least for the next 4 weeks anyway, it´s time for Manu to step up his fantasy game. If you own him, you´re probably in a little bit of luck. Am I expecting 30+ minutes a night? Hellz to the no, son! But I´d welcome 27 mpg, that would be nice! In fact, as I´ve mentioned before, Manu is only averaging 27.6 mpg for his entire career! Clearly, he doesn´t need 35 mpg to get it done. Others that should receive an uptick in value are your usual suspects starting with Danny Green, the good times should keep rolling
