It's official. After months of speculation and rumors, a basketball legend is finally calling it quits.
After a distinguished career with the San Antonio Spurs, in which he was a four-time NBA champion (among many accolades), Manu Ginobili is retiring from professional basketball and he couldn't have announced in a more fitting way.
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. pic.twitter.com/3MLCUtmd6K— Manu Ginobili (@manuginobili) August 27, 2018
The world of basketball will definitely miss Ginobili, but he may not be off the radar for long. There were several rumors swirling around before his announcement that the BIG3 is looking to recruit the Spurs legend.
