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…)
