My piece on a legend’s return to the #Spurs and how comments by Patty Mills in 2018 sort of foretold it:
“He has been an absolute perfect role model for me. I wish every young kid in all of sports had a role model as close as Manu has been to me.”

More from Patty in 2018 about Manu as a mentor, including valuable lessons about money management and the importance of avoiding the “sharks”:
“He cares about his teammates and wanted to make sure that they grew up in this environment the right way.” – 1:28 PM

Manu’s role as a front-office mentor made me think of what Patty Mills said a few years ago about how much “grandpa” helped him:
“He has been an absolute perfect role model for me. I wish every young kid in all of sports had a role model as close as Manu has been to me.” – 1:26 PM

Manu wants to keep his return low key, so no interviews or hoopla of any sort. In fact, the news came in a press release that detailed many other staff “additions and promotions.” The news about Manu wasn’t mentioned until the third paragraph. – 12:07 PM
