Ginobili spent his entire legendary career with the Spurs. He will be a first-ballot Hall of Famer one day. Ginobili won four championships with the Spurs. Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Ginobili and head coach Gregg Popovich will go down as one of the greatest foursomes in NBA history.
Ginobili averaged 13.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists in 1,057 games with San Antonio. He made the All-Star team two times and won the 2008 Sixth Man of the Year Award.
Whether it was hitting clutch shots or catching bats with his hands, Ginobili was as versatile as a player there has ever been in the NBA. The Spurs were pretty lucky to have Ginobili on their side for his entire playing career. He will always be loved by the fans in San Antonio for everything he did for the franchise during his 16-year career.
Duncan joined the Spurs as an assistant coach this summer, prompting San Antonio fans to wonder if Ginobili would join Duncan on Popovich’s staff. However, Ginobili is enjoying spending time with his family, something he missed out on while playing in the NBA.
