Watch Manu Ginobili teach Chinese youth how to Euro-step

New, comments

Coach Manu has a nice ring to it.

NBA: Portland Trail Blazers at San Antonio Spurs Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Spurs legend Manu Ginobili hadn’t been back to China since the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but he recently returned to teach some basketball — including the Euro-step! — on the show “Super 3”. He also discusses the highs and lows of his careers, the 2014 championship, and even endures some teasing regarding Tim Duncan’s “magic touch”.

It’s great to see Manu so excited to pass on his knowledge to younger players. Hopefully he eventually gets that “itch” to coach full time. If he does, the Spurs will be ready. If he can teach Jakob Poeltl to Euro-step, what other magic does he have up his sleeve?
