WATCH: Spurs legend Manu Ginobili joins LeBron James in Space Jam multiverse with surprise cameo
Don’t believe me? Here, take a look at the clip yourself:
The reason why you didn’t catch Manu in the film is because he wasn’t really there. The above clip is a Spanish ad for HBO Max wherein Ginobili is edited in. The scene wherein the Spurs legend makes his cameo is actually worth noting considering how this was the “Michael Jordan” scene. Manu has definitely achieved GOAT status with our Hispanic brothers and sisters.
In case you need some help with the dialogue, here’s what Manu had to say during his scene (h/t Marilyn Dubinski of Pounding the Rock):
“Nice to meet you. But guys, I was on my couch chilling, about to watch the movie. I’m retired. I haven’t touched a ball in three years. No, there’s no way I’m playing.”
You also can’t miss Manu Ginobili flexing his four championship rings in the clip. Much like LeBron, Ginobili has also won no less than four NBA titles with the Spurs throughout his illustrious career. This makes him the perfect fit for the cameo role, doesn’t it?
