In an interview with News 4’s Don Harris, the anchor asked Ginobili if he ever heard of the American expression, “I’d give my left —.” Harris’ voice trail off for a moment before Ginobili interjected. “I gave my right one,” Ginobili said. “I gave it all, I gave it all. I gave my right one for the Spurs, I can say it, I can really say it. It’s true.”
Storyline: Manu Ginobili Injury
Ginobili sustained the injury in a game against the New Orleans Pelicans on Feb. 3, when Ryan Anderson’s knee struck him in his groin. Ginobili immediately collapsed to the ground in pain. The shooting guard, who is known for his toughness over his 15-season career, said the injury ranked “top, top” in terms of pain. “Usually when that happens, it hurts for a little bit. And then after three minutes, you’re back at it,” Ginobili said in March. “It was three minutes, five minutes, 10 minutes, 20 minutes, an hour, an hour and a half, and I was still in the same level of pain. So when we got to the clinic, once we did an MRI, [the doctors said], ‘We need the surgery, and it’s got to be right now.’
