We are less than a week away from Manu Ginobili’s jersey retirement ceremony, and the Spurs are continuing to pump out “Manu Moments”: memories from his former teammates and coaches about Manu the player and the person. Today we have several of his former assistant coaches, teammates from early in his career, and even one of his Argentinean teammates recalling how he helped put basketball on the map in his home country.
