Manu Thanks! Spurs Legend Manu Ginobili Calls it a Day


Manu Ginobili, 41, announced on Monday that he is retiring.

“Today, with a wide range of feelings, I’m announcing my retirement from basketball,” the San Antonio guard said in a tweet. “It’s been a fabulous journey. Way beyond my wildest dreams.”

Ginobili, a future Hall of Famer, had been working out regularly at the Spurs’ practice facility as he tried to make up his mind whether to retire or give it one last season.

The Spurs had been hopeful that Ginobili would want to return for a 17th season and allowed him to take all the time he needed to decide. The team thanked Ginobili in a tweet and video Monday.
