We’re backkkkkk!

On  this brand new Spurs Roundtable powered by Project Spurs, the panel of host Jeff Garcia and Aaron Preine discuss the kick off of the San Antonio Spurs training camp with media day. And though Aaron thought it was uneventful, there were comments from Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili that got people talking.

Video: Manu Ginobili makes trick shot look too easy in Argentinian commercial

Apparently Tony Parker isn’t the only member of the San Antonio Spurs to make tough trick shots look easy.

Manu Ginobili stars in an Argentinian commercial for insurance company “Groupo Asegurador” where he is pitching the company’s services and spinning a CGI-basketball on his fingertip.

However, there’s no CGI needed when a real basketball is in Manu’s hands and ends the commercial making a behind-the-back shot no where near the basket. (more…)
