Manu Ginobili thanks Tim Duncan for temporarily fixing his bald spot
After 19 seasons in the NBA, Tim Duncan has decided to hang up his jersey and retire. During those 19 seasons, Duncan made a lot of contributions to the city of San Antonio, the Spurs, the NBA and the game of basketball.
Players and coaches all over the league took to social media to express their appreciation towards Duncan, the impact he had on them and the ways he touched them. Among those appreciative tweets is former teammate Manu Ginobili and his appreciation for temporarily fixing his bald spot.
On Wednesday afternoon, Ginobili took to Twitter and shared a GIF of Duncan and himself heading to a timeout out in the middle of a Finals game between the San Antonio Spurs and The Miami Heat. In the GIF, Ginobili is heading to the bench high-fiving a teammate as Duncan covers Ginobili’s bald spot.
Take a look for yourself at the hilarious GIF:

This is the second of two tweets the Argentinian dedicated to Duncan with the first one reading:
“Even tho I knew it was coming, I’m still moved by the news. What a HUGE honor to have played with him for 14 seasons! #ThankYouTD”
Though Duncan’s quick fix to Ginobili’s balding problem may not have been permanent, I’m sure the memories these two have will be.
