How do you solve a problem like Ginobili?

How DO catch a cloud and pin it down? - DrumsInTheDeep

With Manu playing less like he has in days of yore, we go back to those days for the inspiration for this song parody.

[Editor's note: With apologies to Rogers and Hammerstein -- best enjoyed after listening to the original. -jrw]


He whips a pass across the court.
His vision has no peer.
His passes have minds of their own.
His play can draw a tear.
And underneath his jersey
His heart beats so sincere.
He'd even play the game in an alley!

His play is so outlandish,
Yet his ability is real.
He turns it over on a whim,
His shooting is surreal.
I hate to have to say it,
But I very firmly feel,
Manu is no longer playing ably!

I'd like to say a word in his defense.
Manu's dunks are immense.

How do you solve a problem like Ginobili?
How do you rein him in without letdown?
How do you find the words for Ginobili?
WTH? OMG! BENCH HIM NOW!

Many a thing you know you'd like to yell at him -
Basketball sets he ought to understand.
But how do you make him play,
Without it going astray?
How do you prevent the crazy and unplanned?

Oh, how do you solve a problem like Ginobili?
How do you keep our Manu from quicksand?

When he shoots, I'm confused.
His wicked passes, they bemuse.
And I never know exactly where he is.
Unpredictable as weather,
He plays without a tether.
He's a genius! He's a quandary! He's a whiz!

His play can be possessed.
Drive a fan base to ingest.
He could be a whirling dervish! A stuntman!
He is brillian! He is wild!
He's a riddle! He's reviled!
He's a headache! He's divine!
He's a man!

How do you solve a problem like Ginobili?
How do you rein him in without letdown?
How do you find the words for Ginobili?
WTH? OMG! BENCH HIM NOW!

Many a thing you know you'd like to yell at him -
Basketball sets he ought to understand.
But how do you make him play,
Without it going astray?
How do you prevent the crazy and unplanned?

Oh, how do you solve a problem like Ginobili?
How do you keep our Manu from quicksand?
