If May 22, 2017 was Manu Ginobili’s last professional basketball game, it was a great ride despite the outcome of the finale.

The Spurs may have lost to the Warriors 129-115 in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals, but if Ginobli decides that it’s time he hangs it up, he will never truly be gone in the minds of San Antonio fans.

By all accounts, the Argentinian shooting guard was one of the most selfless players and fierce competitors the NBA has ever seen.

Gregg Popovich, who was his coach throughout his NBA career, showed his respect for the guard prior to Game 4.

Pop reiterated those sentiments following what may be Ginobili’s last game not only in the Spurs’ black and silver uniform, but in any basketball one.

Ginobli, who was chosen with the 57th pick of the 1999 Draft by San Antonio, was more than a stat line.

His contributions to the Spurs are more than his 13,467 points, 3,838 assists, 3,555 rebounds, and 1,349 steals.
