San Antonio Spurs Manu Ginobili: International man of prestige

Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan, and Tony Parker have passed the torch, so to speak, to the next big three, LaMarcus Aldridge, Kawhi Leonard, and Danny Green. They are not scoring the same as they used to, and this is especially true of Ginobili. Sharing the offensive load and playing fewer minutes is a big reason Manu Ginobili’s stats have gone down. A look at this international player...

NBA players, Twitter react to Dion Waiters elbowing Manu Ginobili

The ending to Monday’s encounter between the Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs was wild and created one of the biggest Twitter storms—and rounds of officiating bashing—in recent memory. For those unfamiliar, Kevin Durant and the Thunder got stomped in Game 1, 124-92. Oklahoma City took Monday’s contest, though, 98-97 after an odd non-call went down when anyone and...

WATCH: Billy Donovan plays dumb about SAS-OKC final play

If postgame press conferences were a game of poker, the chips would have been pushed all-in on Billy Donovan because the OKC Thunder head coach was so clearly bluffing with one of his answers. All anyone could talk about after the Oklahoma City Thunder escaped with a 98-97 victory over the San Antonio Spurs was the incredibly wild ending, which included Dion Waiters pushing Manu...

WATCH: Manu Ginobili talks about Dion Waiters’ shove on inbounds play

NBA fans watched Dion Waiters get away with an obvious elbow on Manu Ginobili in the waning seconds of Tuesday’s Thunder-Spurs game, and we really have to wonder why no call was made with an official standing right there. Ginobili, however, is taking the high road, and is already moving on to Game 3. When asked about the controversial ending, he didn’t say the bad call cost...

Dion Waters elbows Manu Ginobili in crazy ending to game

Monday’s Thunder-Spurs game featured a controversial ending that was marked by a poor no-call. The Thunder had the ball on the side, leading 98-97, with 13 seconds remaining. They, for some reason, had Dion Waters inbound the ball, and he’s probably the last person you want handling the ball with the game on the line. Waters struggled to get the ball in, and then, in a desperation...

Manu Ginobili: ‘I don’t know if there’s a way’ to beat Warriors

The 2015-16 Golden State Warriors are a wrecking crew of legendary proportions, and San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili has yet to figure out the blueprint to beat the Dubs. In a self-written column for Argentinian newspaper La Nacion (h/t Pounding the Rock), Ginobili said “it really doesn’t seem possible” to stop Golden State, and San Antonio found that out the hard way...

Manu Ginobili to miss at least a month after undergoing testicle surgery

Sometimes you hear about a sports injury — a blister maybe or even a broken finger — and think to yourself, “That doesn’t sound so bad.” Other times, as with Manu Ginobili’s latest injury, it’s the opposite. Ginobili will miss at least a month after undergoing surgery Thursday for a testicle injury he suffered Wednesday night. The injury was initially reported as...
