Estudiantes Rumors

It will be one of the last for Ginobili, who will go into the Hall of Fame as much for what he did for his nation as he did for the Spurs. The kid from Bahia Blanca is now a father with a bald spot, but whose passion for the game still comes out in every slap at the ball, every stepback three, every ballfake that leads to a driving layup. (This is must reading on Ginobili’s impact and legacy.) “It will continue,” Ginobili said. “How successful, it’s hard to guess what’s going to happen. We did some amazing things in the last 15 years. But, for sure, we have some tough competitors. Nicolas Laprovittola is another tough, hard-nosed player… Patricio Garino is just a great player. So, we just need a little size once Luis Scola retires. But I’m proud of my teammates. I know they’re going to keep playing the right way, and with a lot of heart.”
