Spurs fans were delighted to see Manu Ginobili finally get some rest over the summer heading into this season after battling an injury plagued 2008-2009 season. And with Ginobili looking like the Ginobili Spurs fans know, the following might not be what fans want to hear.
“The tournament in Turkey is coming soon and as it gets closer, I am more and more looking forward to playing it,” Ginobili said. “It would be a strange feeling not to be part of the World Championship, it’s inevitable.”
The tournament Manu is referring to is the 2010 FIBA World Championship in Turkey this summer.
I am sure the issue of him playing this summer will enter into any contract extension discussions he and the Spurs have. He is a free agent after this season, and should the Spurs not resign him, he will be an in demand player.
Regarding his future in the NBA, Manu said, “Secondly, I don’t have a team just yet and I don’t know what I will do.”
