Shootaround (May 22) -- Decision about future looms for Manu Ginobili

No. 1: Key decision looms for Ginobili -- Game 4 of the Western Conference finals tonight (9 ET, ESPN) will mark the 211th playoff game in Manu Ginobili's career. As the San Antonio Spurs try to stave off elimination in the series, a loss would hasten the questions about whether or not Ginobili, a free agent this summer, will return to the NBA or retire this summer. Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News takes stock of what lies ahead for Ginobili:

The one thing to take away from the Spurs’ Game 3 loss to the Warriors

The one thing to take away from the Spurs’ Game 3 loss to the Warriors

San Antonio outplayed Golden State in a number of areas, but still came up short. There’s not much to learn from the Spurs’ loss to the Warriors in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals that we didn’t already know. Kawhi Leonard’s greatness has been missed. Manu Ginobili is an absolute joy to watch. LaMarcus Aldridge is polarizing (to put it politely). The Warriors are really freaking good. We knew all that. In Michael Erler’s ode to Ginobili, he touched on this feeling of inevitability that has crept into this series; sucking the fun out of it ever since Leonard went down. San...

Hurting Spurs drop Game 3 to Warriors despite Manu Ginobili’s throwback performance

Hurting Spurs drop Game 3 to Warriors despite Manu Ginobili’s throwback performance

It’s been a disappointing week for the Spurs and their fans. The Spurs entered game 3 as 9 1⁄2 point underdogs, which is the largest spread the Spurs have seen as underdogs at home in the Gregg Popovich era. And it was for good reason. Kawhi Leonard was ruled out a few hours before tip-off making it official that San Antonio would be wildly overmatched against Golden State in the game, even with the Warriors missing injured heel, Zaza Pachulia, who was hurt in game 2 in a small bit of karmic justice. But losing Zaza for the Warriors is nothing like losing Kawhi for the Spurs. Kawhi...

Manu Ginobili on Spurs in Game 2: “We felt sorry for ourselves.”

The pity party is over. The Spurs still don’t know if superstar Kawhi Leonard will be available for Game 3 of their Western Conference Finals series against Golden State on Saturday — Leonard is officially listed as questionable — but the Spurs are no longer going to feel bad for themselves if they’re forced to

The Spurventure Zone: Chapter 3

I wish I could “restart the clock” on this series, because I’d make a lot of changes. It’s the Spurventure Zone! If you followed the Spurs for much of Tim Duncan’s career, you’re probably aware that he’s been into Dungeons and Dragons since almost forever. What you certainly didn’t know (since it’s completely made up) is that just after the regular season, he got Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge together for their first foray into the world of magic and quests, dragons and treasure. For Part 1, where our intrepid adventurers were first sent...

The definitive guide to all of Manu Ginobili’s magical Game 5 performances

A look back at some fun times with the ultimate competitor in Spurs history Manu Ginobili is the emperor of a very peculiar kingdom. For whatever reason, he’s developed an odd habit of producing his best performance of a playoff series in Game 5, regardless of opponent or personal circumstance. It’s the damnedest thing, and one that by now one would assume Ginobili himself and the Spurs at large have noticed. I took the time to go through Ginobili’s game logs for every playoff series he’s participated in that have gone at least six games, logging his “game scores” via...

Manu Ginobili and the Retribution Block

Manu Ginobili and the Retribution Block

“It was a risky play. But it was risky to let him shoot, so I took my chances.” - Manu Ginobili Manu Ginobili is my favorite player, and has been for years. Yes, I loved Tim Duncan and Tony Parker, but in a lot of ways, your favorite player chooses you as much as you choose them. This season, particularly this postseason, hasn’t been Manu’s best — but the man is 39 years old. No one expected him to play the way he did in his peak. And yet there are nights like Tuesday’s Game 5: the throwback dunk, the driving-hanging-drifting-finger-roll, the umpteen thousandth clutch three....
