Manu Ginobili recalls having “no thoughts” of an NBA career when he was growing up in Argentina, a sentiment shared by his current teammate from Spain, Pau Gasol. “For me, it was like going to a different galaxy. It was like a dream far, far away,” Gasol told Yahoo Sports. “So it was something very hard to get to. Kids are getting confident. They see coming to the NBA as something that’s probable. I wouldn’t say easier, because this is a very competitive league. Everyone wants to make it. Everyone wants to be in it. But it doesn’t seem as improbable as it used to be.”
Marco Belinelli: One time, I can’t remember who I was guarding, but it was a player from the deep bench who no one expected to get in. We were winning the game, and my man went into the corner and hit a corner three. “Marco,” shouted Manu. I knew I did something wrong, but I could not have told you what. “Don’t you know that guy has a corner three? Close out!” He knows everything about everyone, even guys he knows he has no chance of facing. That’s who he is. That’s Manu. How is he still in the league, you wonder? It’s because he’s still like that.
