Iconic San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili will have his jersey number retired after the team’s March 28 game against Cleveland.
The ceremony will take place after the game. Ginobili, who retired earlier this summer, will become the ninth player in Spurs’ franchise history to earn a spot in the rafters of the AT&T Center.
Ginobili played on four Spurs NBA championship teams and 16 seasons with the franchise. He leads the franchise with 1,485 career 3-pointers and 1,392 career steals. Ginobili is third in Spurs franchise history with 1,057 games, fifth in minutes played with 26,589 and fifth in career scoring with 14,043 points.
Ginobili might be the most beloved player in franchise history because of his gritty work ethic and his wizardry on the court.
He joins Tim Duncan, George Gervin, David Robinson, James Silas, Bruce Bowen, Sean Elliott, Avery Johnson and Johnny Moore to have his uniform number retired.
