Manu Ginobili was not a Laker; he was a Laker killer. And yet, with his retirement, something has gone away that defined an era of Lakers (and Spurs) basketball. The guys get into season win…

Many Ginobili said he has no interest in coaching following his retirement.
Ginobili recently ventured with the Spurs coaching staff on their annual coaches retreat, but said it was only to see what the other side of basketball was like. He says he has no intentions of coaching, but he is still staying close to the Spurs and has been at training camp.

Speaking to reporters after Tuesday’s game, Manu Ginobili said that he feels like he can still play, but he plans to make a decision on whether to retire or not in 3-4 weeks.
Manu was able to play in 70 games this season and even though his fantasy value has diminished due to the lack of playing time, he still gave us some vintage lines. It’s unclear if he returns next season and a lot will depend on what happens with Kawhi Leonard as the Spurs might be transitioning to a new era after this summer.

Manu Ginobili came off the bench and posted 10 points, five rebounds, seven assists and a 3-pointer in Tuesday's loss to the Warriors.
If this is it for Manu, it's been a heck of a ride. He had a few shining moments in this brief postseason run and there were instances where he looked nothing like a 40-year-old. The prevailing sentiment on Twitter and around the league calls for one more year, but only Manu can make that decision.

Manu Ginobili got the home crowd rocking in Sunday's Game 4, scoring 10 of his 16 in the final frame to lock up a home win.
The Spurs closed the game on a 15-4 run, thanks in large part to some buckets from Manu. In what might've been Ginobili's final home game, he didn't disappoint with three rebounds, five assists and three triples. He's not the player he once was, obviously, but Ginobili can still turn back the clock every once in awhile.

Ettore Messina will coach the Spurs Thursday night in place of Greg Popovich whose wife Erin passed away Wednesday.
Popovich is one of the most respected figures in the NBA, possibly across all of pro sports, and our deepest condolences go out to him and his family. Multiple players visited Popovich Wednesday night and the entire league has represented the strength of the fraternity that the NBA has as a league. Multiple Spurs players commented on Thursday night's game describing how hard it will be to play, but also how they will represent Popovich by playing as hard as they can. It is a sad time for the Spurs organization and the Popovich family – we wish them the best.

Manu Ginobili logged 12 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's season finale, scoring six points on 2-of-7 shooting with two rebounds, three assists and one triple.
Ginobili still looks like he could go big in a Finals game and nobody would blink an eye. After showing some staying power in deep leagues because of a solid stat set, he finally gave way to Father Time on the fantasy front with just top-250ish returns when he was on the floor for his 65 games.

Manu Ginobili turned back the clock a bit on Monday night, scoring 17 points to go with six rebounds, five assists, a steal and two triples in 27 minutes against the Kings.
A throwback Ginobili performance is a fun sight to see right before the playoffs, and despite the roster's obvious deficiencies there's one top-four seed out there that's dreading a matchup with San Antonio. He's only an option in very deep leagues at this point in his career, however, and can't be trusted with the Spurs heading into a fairly meaningless final game.

Manu Ginobili (rest) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Lakers.
The Spurs are on the second night of a back-to-back so Ginobili gets the night off. He's nothing more than a deep league guy, anyway.
