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. Duncan’s teammate Manu Ginobili joked about this fact with a spot-on impersonation of the Spurs big man when asked how Duncan would feel about a statue being erected in his honor once his playing days are over. Check out the funny clip above. [The Basketball Jones] Article...

Spurs fan shaves Manu Ginobili’s likeness into the back of his head

The San Antonio Spurs have some of the most passionate and dedicated fans in the NBA, and probably all of professional sports. Apparently they also know some skilled barbers.

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. When Manu Ginobili first received the ball in the San Antonio Spurs’ Game Three victory over the Heat, he gave a quick pump fake that got Dwyane Wade off his feet and he aggressively attacked the basket, finishing...

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. Their pedigrees and championship histories tell us so. Name two shooting guards other than Kobe Bryant with a bigger impact on the game over the last decade than D-Wade or Manu. 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. Stephen Douglas of The Big Lead referred to it as “basketball porn” and I really can’t argue with that assessment. Late in the third quarter, San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili drove into the lane and threw a behind-the-head pass to Tim Duncan...

Spurs face serious questions about Manu's minutes

During the NBA Finals, John Karalis of Red's Army will be contributing to Project Spurs during the San Antonio Spurs' chase for title number five.   It was tough to watch, but I’ve seen it happen before.  In fact, the memory is fresh in my head.    San Antonio Spurs' Manu Ginobili spent much of last night’s Game 2 chasing after a ball that was...

Things have hit rock bottom in the Bronx.  In what should be a celebratory month of Derek Jeter‘s career (and potential final postseason appearance), the New York Yankees are just about out of options to make the playoffs.  One last option was exercised today.  Bench Derek Jeter.  Not demote him out of the number two spot.  Not give him a day of rest.  Benched.  The American...

Jets' Mornhinweg says referee made error by calling timeout

The New York Jets could have made a game-tying touchdown in the match against the Packers, however, a timeout error of course made the situation complicated for the Jets, as usual.

Report: Gruden thinks Cousins is a better fit for offense than RG3

Since he was hired as head coach of the Washington Redskins, Jay Gruden has remained committed to Robert Griffin III — at least publicly. Despite reports from training camp about New England Patriots officials saying Kirk Cousins looked like the best quarterback at Redskins training camp, Cousins never stood a chance at starting. He does […]
