Manu Ginobili to host Q&A on reddit on Saturday

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Per Spurs PR, Manu Ginobili will become the first NBA player to participate in reddit's "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) when he hosts an online Q&A on Saturday. This coming a month after Tony Parker hosted his own Tweetchat, signifying that the age of social media has indeed reached its peak.

Spurs players. Willingly participating in social media experiments. Presumably with Gregg Popovich in the know. This is getting weird.

This per Spurs release:

Those wanting to participate in the AMA session simply need to create a reddit account and submit their questions just before 4:30 p.m. CT on March 23.

The Spurs will be the first NBA team to have a player participate in an AMA. Other notable reddit AMA participants include Barack Obama, Roger Goodell, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bill Gates and Anthony Bourdain.

The AMA label should probably be taken with a grain of salt. Or a boulder. Because I doubt Manu will be giving Spurs fans the "Toronto insight" into the Spurs organization. The questions will most likely be as follows:

"What is your favorite food, Manu?"

"Did you like the Twilight series, Mr. Ginobili?"

"Can we have your thoughts on Dennis Rodman's trip to North Korea?"

"Do you watch Game of Thrones and/or play World of Warcraft?"

"What is your favorite color, and why?"

"Are you excited about the next Ke$ha album?"

"Do you think the Spurs can go all the way, Manu?"

"Do you prefer your newer shorn appearance to the Friar Tuck look of old?"

"Does the San Antonio #Spurs thinks the team is one of best teams in #NBA? #Spurs #basketball #GoSpursGo"

OK, guys. Let's post some suggested questions in the comment section. Better yet, submit them to Manu. I know the readers here at PtR can post some better ones than what I've written above. Except for the last one, probably. That is an awesome question, I think. But that's just me.
