Manu Ginobili

There aren’t many players like the Argentinian Manu Ginobili. His zig-zagging forays to the rim earlier in his career even forced coach Gregg Popovich to concede the one-time mop-headed Ginobili had to cut loose on the court rather than adhere to San Antonio’s famously structured attack. Ginobili’s on-ball wizardry continued during a sequence in last night’s 93-80 win over the Lakers. Read More »

Klay Thompson, Kawhi Leonard

San Antonio’s Kawhi Leonard and Golden State’s Klay Thompson have a lot in common. Both came out in the 2011 NBA Draft; both have a hard “K” in their forename; both have exceeded expectations since getting drafted (No. 11 for Klay and No. 15 for Kawhi), and both are elite on each side of the ball. Last night, during a slow-moving fast break for the Spurs, Kawhi even jamed it on Klay. Read More »
