Video: Manu Ginobili admits that he’s 40 after game-winner
Even at the ripe old age of 40, Manu Ginobili continues to find ways to get it done. The San Antonio Spurs legend came up big once again as he sank the game-winning 3-pointer to down the league-leading Boston Celtics, 105-102.
Still in disbelief at how Manu continues to defy the age barrier, the San Antonio Express-News’ Jabari Young sheepishly asked Ginobili post-game whether he really is 40. Ginobili assured him that he’s most definitely as old as he says he is.
“Yeah, I’m telling you. You should feel what I’m feeling now. But yeah, I am.”

It truly is amazing how Ginobili has remained a relevant contributor to a top title contender like the Spurs despite his advanced age. That’s just a testament to his dedication and commitment that he has managed to stay in as good a shape as he does. It also speaks to his desire and passion for the game that he keeps on playing even though he’s achieved so much already in his career.
It must be a refreshing feeling for Spurs fans that while Kawhi Leonard remains sidelined, they still have a 40-year-old Ginobili who can turn back the clock and deliver in the clutch when needed.
