Manu Ginobili statue unveiled in Argentina

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — San Antonio’s Manu Ginobili may have missed out on playing with his native Argentina in the FIBA Basketball World Cup while he recovers from injury, but from the looks of his Twitter account, he’s still having a pretty nice summer. Ginobili posted a photo over the weekend of a statue of himself that was unveiled in Buenos Aires. His caption, loosely translated, reads, “Mom: I didn’t become a doctor, but I got a statue in Argentina!”

    That’s awesome. Definitely the best player to come out of Argentina’s golden age. The statue should be of him bursting out of his shoe though lol.

    The statue should be him dunking on Chris Bosh or of him with his long hair back in the day. No disrespect to Manu cuz he is a legend. Go Spurs go!
