Ginobili’s offseason training

With the NBA players now locked out, currently for the sixth day, players are not allowed to use team facilities or work with team staff.

This weekend, San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili posted a message to Twitter about how he wished he could talk to Spurs trainer Will Sevening and wish him a happy birthday.

Ginobili may not have the state-of-the-art Spurs practice facility or the services of Sevening, but perhaps he could be enlisting help from two new trainers and taking to parks to begin his offseason training regiment.

Or it could just be Ginobili enjoying a day at the park with his young twins. Even in a park, I’m not sure the tiny carousel pictured below, which clearly does not fit Ginobili’s 6-6 frame, would be up to code as proper training equipment…even in a lockout.
