Highlights

Ginobili! What can be said about Manu? The guy is all class, a professional. He's logged a lot of minutes over the course of his career by making deep playoff runs and playing in the summer for Argentina. The lefty is a jack of all trades. He can run the point—as he did this past season when Tony Parker went down—slash to make acrobatic layups, shoot from anywhere, and he also plays solid defense (and flops like a champ). He's been just as important to the Spurs run of success as Tim Duncan, David Robinson, and Tony Parker have been. Given his international career and his current NBA one, expect Manu to be inducted into the Hall once he chooses to hang 'em up.
