Yesterday, it happened.
Manu Ginobili announced his retirement from the NBA. A four-time NBA champion, a two-time All-Star, an Olympic gold medalist, NBA Sixth Man of the Year, and the king of the Euro-step, Ginobili will go down as one of the greatest international players to ever step foot on an NBA court.

Hell of a career @manuginobili . One of the best to ever do it. Pick and roll genius. Euro-step king. Hated trying to force you right in the pnr knowing you would still snake back to the left hand. I’ve borrowed a lot of your moves and set-ups. The game will miss you !
