The San Antonio Spurs are a tough out at home. While we can look at their record at home as being among the NBA’s best the last few years, we could also simply look at last night’s thrashing of the Miami Heat, in what was one of the most lopsided games in the history of the NBA Finals. One of the big reasons it is so difficult for opponents to find success in Texas is the dedicated fan base, definitely one of the most rabid in the NBA. There is one fan who is particularly infatuated with Manu Ginobili, and went so far as to shave Manu’s face into the back of his head.


Let’s try to get a closer look at Manu’s fuzzy mug:


That’s a bit much for my liking, but better than getting a tattoo of another dude's face on your body. But the barber is definitely a great artist to put that together.

We will just stick with wearing a jersey at the game.

Manu Ginobili Throws Down Two Age-Defying Dunks in Spurs’ Game 3 Win Over Heat (Videos)

Manu Ginobili has not had the greatest NBA Finals thus far. While his Spurs do lead the Heat, two games to none, in the best-of-seven series, the 35-year-old guard has looked every bit his age. He nearly cost the Spurs a win in Game 1, and he was dreadful in Game 2. Game 3 was more of a mixed bag. Ginobili’s seven points on 3-for-7 shooting were nothing special, but he did record...

Manu Ginobili's great Tim Duncan impression

Though super polite and professional, Tim Duncan doesn’t exactly have the most colorful of personalities.

Ray Allen kicks Manu Ginobili in the groin

Ouch, bro.  San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili was fighting through a Lebron James pick when he ended up on the receiving end of a Ray Allen back kick right to his balls.

Manu Ginobili Throws Down The Two-Handed Jam

Manu Ginobili provided a nice spark off the bench for San Antonio in the first quarter of Game 3. Along with his 4 points and 2 assists, the Spurs veteran threw down this two-handed jam after hitting D Wade with the pump fake.

Manu no longer the threat he used to be

During the 2013 NBA Finals, Philip Rossman-Reich of Orlando Magic Daily will be contributing to Project Spurs, covering the San Antonio Spurs' march to title No. 5.

Spurs need bounce back after Finals split

The Spurs' company line after two games in Miami could have easily been this: "We got the split we wanted going back to San Antonio." That's normally the default for road dogs who wrestle away homecourt advantage. Instead, company man Manu Ginobili delivered a considerably more blunt assessment after Game 2's 103-84 slaughter. The Spurs wanted more than a...

Ginobili, Wade struggles could cost their team a title

Their names belong on the marquee because of who they are. Dwyane Wade and Manu Ginobili are headliners in the NBA Finals series full of headliners.

The Heat and Spurs don't have multiple banners in...

LeBron blocks Duncan after sweet Manu dish

In Game 4 of the NBA Finals Thursday night there was a sequence of basketball-deliciousness that needs to be seen to be believed.
