Manu is the most underrated player of our generation. A late second round pick who turned into a clutch and important player on a dynasty. We will miss you Manu!!!

Manu es un orgullo para sur América, saludos desde Chile

Manu was all in one .
Long range shooter.
Mid range shooter.
Great passer
Ball stealing
Quick and very creative
Loyal to his team. Respected by his teammates. by his coach. and his opponents.
He played the sixth man to lift the team when needed a lift.
He could be a starter in any team.
He never complained.
He was the top beloved player by the fans screaming Mana Manu.

Manu didn’t like cameras and he doesn’t believe in legacy and statistics. He only wanted to win. And he did it, four times a ring and one olympic gold medal. That’s true success.
This is probably one of the best highlight reels of any player in NBA history... Show me another player with this combination of dazzling passes, finishes and creativity
Alexandre Guerreiro
Alexandre Guerreiro:
I still don't understand why he was only two times an all star. I guess nobody understands.
A truly great . Thank's for all Manu, we love you here in Portugal!

El mas grande jugador de basquetball de todos los tiempos en la Argentina,y entre los 5 deportistas mas grandes de la historia argentina,orgulloso de que Manu haya dejado esa huella ejemplar tanto como deportista como hombre,siempre extrañaremos tus geniales jugadas!!!

From 2006 to 2014, the San Antonio Spurs played the most beautiful basketball I have ever seen. The passing, the defense, the substance in fundamentals was just so precise and ethereal. Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili...were consumate professionals...and the game of basketball is better for having those teams.
Nico Lucero
Nico Lucero:
Manu Ginobili is proof that stats don’t tell the tale of the tape, the ability to make the right play at the right time is a lot more important then someone whom is piling up points that doesn’t translate to wins. Stats can be circumstantial, depending on soooo many things! I’d take Manu over a lot of current superstars, he’s someone who’s a team player and will lay out and die on the court. Believe dat!!!

Very few people have highlights close to this spectacular. He’s easily one of the most amazing basketball players who ever laced them up.

He dunks on '7 6" Yao Ming, blocks K.D.'s shot, takes it in hard against Shaq and gets and 1. Oh yeah he's also got a gold medal he won against the U.S.A. feat.(Duncan, L.B.J. Melo, Wade, Iverson, Marbury, Marion, Odom)and 4 rings with the San Antonio Spurs and this cat still isn't worthy of the(H.O.F.)? Manu is in Larry Birds class and I'd say he's even better because he won a gold against a stacked U.S. squad in '04 and even though they were young so was Manu but he always played big when the moment was at its biggest stage!!!

Keezus Prod.:
I always have to come back to this. we've just never seen a player like Manu. Balls of steel to make any play, the pride to come off the bench, and clutch out the ass I miss this beast of a man so much
True legend off and on the court. Did everything, never had any scandals, always a good guy...always sad to see one of those greats go but they deserve the rest and the time to reap the fruits of their hard work for our entertainment!
All the best to Manu the Great !

Giuliano contrera:
Se dan cuenta que cuando mejor jugaba era en los PlayOffs/Finals? Muchos jugadores bajan su nivel y se achican cuando llegan a esas instancias, pero Manu lo único que hacia al llegar ahí era jugar aun mejor, y estas jugadas lo demuestran(la mayoría en PlayOffs/Finals)
Javier Silva
Javier Silva:
this guy scored around 30 points against nba all star teams usa, he did so more than once. the best of the best. big fan from venezuela
Gerardo Mauricio Dubon
Gerardo Mauricio Dubon:
Manu debería estar en la lista Top 75 mejores jugadores de la NBA. Lo merece mas que jugadores como James Harden o Russell Westbrook
Manu highlights will never get old to me! I really wish the Spurs can find another like him but that's probably impossible. Manu could've easily been a starter on any team in his later years but he bought into Pop and the Spurs culture. Very underrated player by some but loved and respected by his Texas FAMILY. Thank you again for giving 110% for so many years!! 🦇
the only guy who can posterize Yao and block KD...and beat a dream team! Legend 4 life.
Un distinto. Único e irrepetible, cómo extraño verlo jugar! Mas allá de las loas en los comentarios, recuerdo sus últimos 3 años donde mas me emocionó, adaptando su juego y siendo uno de los mejores pasadores de la historia. Eso si, cuando había q meterla y poner orden, el tipo iba y era el uno indiscutido. Que cosa increíble.

Most underrated baller.

Greatest 6th man of all time.

Favorite player of all time. Never loved a nba player like I do him.
One of the best to ever set foot on a court. Yet one of the most unnoticed and underrated.
Ricardo Modesto

Dunk on Yao
Fool Shaq
Block KD
Lots of clutch plays

What a LEGEND!!

The dunk on Bosh in the 2014 NBA Finals against the Heat is my favorite! Gives me goosebumps every time...their last championship
after watching the clips it looks like Manu played in the NBA for 50 years
Randy H.
Randy H.:
Manu Ginóbili was drafted in 1999, with the 28th pick of the 2nd round (57th Overall). He was the second to last pick, of that entire draft! No one truly knows during draft time, who the great ones will be. They can only assume and guess.

Mikhail Boldt:
One of the most under rated players in nba history an amazing clutch performer great guy fantastic teammate unselfish absolutely a favorite of mine among all players!
Ricky Jayson Guevarra
Ricky Jayson Guevarra:
My favorite player of all time.. Savage but humble..
Wishing how he could return so bad right now with the spurs going through a turmoil. People have Michael Jordan or Lebron James inspiring them to play basketball but I will take Manu as my biggest inspiration and role model any time no doubt. His just special and none are like him. Sometimes I don't even believe myself that a 40 year old man inspired me to play basketball .

Undoubtedly one of the best in the history of the NBA

The one where he bumped into Shaq makes me laugh 😂 The momentum of the collision pushed him towards damn near the sideline chairs 😂

As a lifelong Spurs fan, there will never be another Big 3 like those guys. Manu was unstoppable!
as a life long Laker fan, I always shouted at the TV "don't let him go left!" and hated him for years. mad respect for the Argentinian that came off the bench but played like a starter no matter what. As Kobe said, "He's a baaaad boy"

I think it was in 04’ when Spurs won the championship vs. Pistons. Manu was clearly the MVP but David Stern wanted to prop up Tim Duncan (a stud in his own right) to create that Uber star. The whole San Antonio crowd responded to the Manu slight

Ginobili, Duncan, Parker are what I grew up watching and what made me a Spurs fan
Jesse Diaz
Jesse Diaz:
Euroleague titles, euroleague MVPs, NBA 6th man of the year awards, 4 NBA titles, two NBA all star appearances considering he came of the bench, NBA all NBA team honors 3 times, most impressive Olympic gold medalist over team USA, but most importantly the Ultimate competitor with a huge heart and desire for the game Along with the goats MJ and Kobe. He's a basketball legend.

El Ultimo , Los Spurs se sienten Raros sin Tony, Tim y ahora Manu.Estos Caballeros fueron los que a mis 12 años me enamorara del Basket y de la Organizacion donde para mi se juega el mejor basket en equipo.Gracias Manu eres Un Grande y un Verdadero Campeón!!
Glad he’s going to be in the hall of fame, well deserved.
Uno de los mejores jugadores de la NBA no tengo absolutamente ninguna duda. Spurs agradecido con Manu por los anillos..
He won almost every available trophy in basketball. A true champion 👏

Hannibal Barca
Hannibal Barca:
One of the best playmakers, teammates, passers, and players in nba history. If he was on a different team, he would have been a starter and a 25/10 guy and had more 'individual' accolades.
Edgar Baring
Edgar Baring:
He would sacrifice his whole body when he took it to the hoop and do it over and over. Man was hard as nails and such a soft heart. Much love for manu

One of my favorite humble
3:43 This crazy running banker from the final seconds of 2OT is from the same game that featured Duncan's own legendary clutch 3ptr: 2008 Suns/Spurs R1G1. Insane back and forth battle between the Nash/Stoudemire Suns and the defending champ Spurs, and the best early round playoff game I've ever seen. Go check it out ::: /watch?v=TxQ3yoTkXtc
