Spurs Star Announces Retirement, Alamo City Celebrates “Manu Ginobili Day”

Written by on August 30, 2018

Spurs Nation woke to the dreaded news on Monday morning that beloved, star, Shooting Guard from Argentina, Manu Ginobili, announced his retirement from the San Antonio Spurs NBA team, the last of the “Big Three” (Duncan, Parker, Ginobili 2002 – 2016) to leave the franchise.

Ginobili made the bilingual announcement written in both English and Spanish via Instagram he stated “Today, with a wide range of feelings, I’m announcing my retirement from basketball. IMMENSE GRATITUDE to everyone (family, friends, teammates, coaches, staff, fans) involved in my life in the last 23 years. It’s been a fabulous journey. Way beyond my wildest dreams.” To date, the post has received 29,559 comments and growing from fans around the globe expressing their appreciation, well wishes and congrats on the closing of a stellar career.

Garnering four championship rings with the Spurs, Manu was one of only two professional players to also win a EuroLeague title and an Olympic gold medal.

Mayor Ron Nirenberg quickly announced Thursday, August 30th “Manu Ginobili Day,” inviting citizens to wear their silver and black in honor and celebration of “a player who exemplified grit, sportsmanship, and the pure joy of the game.”

ESPN staff writer Michael C. Wright reported “After talking with Pop, it was the right time to make it public,” Ginobili wrote. “You can’t imagine the tension I had in front of the computer before pressing ‘send.’ I’m not sure why, since I was convinced that it was the right decision, but it was a very crazy moment. I am convinced and happy with the step I’m taking. It’s hard to explain all my feelings. Immediately after making the announcement, I experienced a great relief and thought that I was going to be able to disconnect, but the messages began to arrive. I couldn’t stay away, and some of them really moved me.”

    Amazing blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there
    that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Appreciate it!
