We all know Manu Ginobili can pass, but did we know he can pass this ridiculously in one of the most simplest basketball plays ever in the pick-and-roll?
The San Antonio Spurs and Ginobili have made this play the staple of their offense for years and there’s just a handful of teams that can pull it off with such ease. As far as the play goes, we know how the play will develop.
A Spurs big man will set a pick for Ginobili as the ball-handler, and either fake the pick, or bump Manu’s defender to cause space to create the play.
After that, it’s all Ginobili’s genius as one of the most underrated passers in the game. As you’ll see, Manu just needs some daylight after the pick and his instinct kicks in on how he’ll deliver the pass. Whether it’s a simple bounce pass or a pass between someone’s legs, it’s a sight to watch for any basketball purist. Check out the video of Ginobili’s brilliant passing below.
