Great ceremony for Ginobili in SA last night.
One hell of a career.
That was fantastic.
One of my favorite players ever. Also, I think a little underrated.
The Popovich/Ginobili relationship is fascinating. He certainly didn't look like a Popovich kind of player. A little reckless, did things his way, but possessed great basketball instincts. Turned out to be a perfect match.
The way Ginobili played and understood the game, reminded me of a young Maravich.
Love it or hate it, I think he was responsible for bringing the Euro-step(?) to the NBA.
Gold Medal, Multiple NBA Championships, Euro League Championship. Played his entire NBA career for one team.
Probably the most underrated aspect of Pop has been his ability to modify what he wants to do to fit his players. How many times has the guy completely changed his offense based on his roster?
Absolutely. He's without equal when it comes to understanding, recognizing and adapting to his personnel.
Best coach of basketball ever, including Wooden.
