Manu Ginobili Shoe

We’ve never seen this before. The amount of torque needed to actually burst a sneaker’s upper as you’re sliding on defense is unfathomable. Manu Ginobili turns 37 this July, but you know Pop isn’t going to play him unless he’s busting his butt on defense.

Detroit ended a three-game losing streak on Friday night with a 115-107 win over the visiting Hawks.
