“He is, in all ways and in every way, beloved in San Antonio: an untouchable, unimpeachable, unassailable cultural figure. Nobody who has ever worn a Spurs jersey has ever been more beloved than Manu Ginobili.”
This is just an absolutely wonderful ode to Manu. It’s weird starting an NBA season without him suited up for the Spurs. Even outside of San Antonio, well at least in my household, he was beloved for the way he played and the unique aspects he brought to the game.
