Teardroppin’ My Favorite Tony Parker Games – #12

With the news last week that Tony Parker had signed with the Hornets, its been an emotional time for me. Objectively, it was likely a good move for the Spurs just because Tony is not the player he used to be.   However, thinking like that makes me feel like I took him for granted back… Continue reading Teardroppin’ My Favorite Tony Parker Games – #12

The Manuest Game Ever Ginobilied #1

And here we are at #1.  I started this list four months ago thinking I'd knock this out in about two weeks. However, if there is one thing about me that surpasses my love for the Spurs, it is my incredible laziness.  So without further ado, here we go! #1 2005 NBA Finals Game 7 vs… Continue reading The Manuest Game Ever Ginobilied #1

The Manuest Games Ever Ginobilied #2

2014 was the first NBA season I watched without much enthusiasm.  I was pretty emotionally numbed from the horror that had befallen the Spurs in 2013 and my brain reacted accordingly.  All season long, I refused to get very invested only to have it all slammed back in my face. The Spurs had the best… Continue reading The Manuest Games Ever Ginobilied #2

The Manuest Games Ever Ginobilied – NUMBER THREE

#3 2007 Western Conference Semi-Finals Game 5 vs Phoenix The 2007 championship is by far the least interesting championship the Spurs won, in my opinion.  All year long, I wanted the Spurs to get revenge on the Mavericks for that brutal series in 2006 but that didn't happen (possibly a good thing because those Mavericks… Continue reading The Manuest Games Ever Ginobilied – NUMBER THREE

The Fourth Most Manuest Game Ever Ginobilied

#4.  2005 NBA Finals Game 1 vs Detroit One of my favorite things about Manu is his ability to make a game his.  This means more than just dominating games.  Timmy, Tony, and Kawhi dominate games regularly but it always feels like pre-ordained.  Manu is chaos.  Manu grabs a game's flow and basically forces it to… Continue reading The Fourth Most Manuest Game Ever Ginobilied

The Manuest Games Ever Ginobilied (#5)

Slowly but surely I am getting through these.  As we get closer to the top, the games are more and more weighted towards those where the stakes are higher than ever.  Today, my list only has one game but it is one of the most clutch plays in a do-or-die situation I've seen in my… Continue reading The Manuest Games Ever Ginobilied (#5)

The Most Manuest Games Ever Ginobilied (#6 and #7)

Well we are getting to the half-way point of my favorite Manu playoff games ever.  I have to admit, the back half of these (#8-12) was tough for me to come up with an order for.  Most of this is because I picked those games because they have intangible qualities that, to me, best represent… Continue reading The Most Manuest Games Ever Ginobilied (#6 and #7)
