Video: Manu Ginobili’s Fastball Pass to Matt Bonner

Consider adding Manu to the bullpen.

With this strike down the middle, Manu Ginobili may have made the assist of the season.

    real nice pass, assist of the season? not so much. danilo got that one on lock imo

  • Rainman

    One of the best, underratted passers (and players) in the L , no doubt.

    no way @spit hot this one has to be better than danilo’s. he didn’t catch the ball and it was only a split second that gap was open for, manu saw it develop and used his gut instinct to trust it was there.

    I don’t think I’ve seen too many passes like this one before. As others have said, only Manu. I’ll never forget “highlights” like these (I’ll never forget him taking care of that wild bat).

  • angus

    pass of the season?

  • logues

    when i saw this live, it was like one of those “oh $hit!!” plays lol that was a randy johnson heater

  • BuzzerBeater

    @Airsmith lol this reminded me of the bat smack as well

    Nice pass off a broken play but to be honest the degree difficulty on that isnt that high. It doesnt look like it from this angle but the gap prolly looked bigger from manus angle. Baseball passes like that are trickier if u go full length (where lobbing is easier/safer).

  • AiRsMiTh

    Lol @ BuzzerBeater, I don’t think I’ll ever forget that. Too odd, but definitely amazing.

    @#6 have to disagree with u on that one, still great pass though

  • andrew

    credit Bonner for soft hands, imagine Kwame on the other end?

  • Mike Mihalow

    The link I posted yesterday is better. It shows better angles, more replays. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSN1yRY_cXM

    That was SICK.

  • franko

    once again he is amazing. sure you have James, Wade, Kobe, Durant… but MANU is top ten!

    Jesus the hands on this guy, bullet pass indeed.
    Great hustle by Tiago to even secure the rebound.

    This is a nice play. Tough to pull off too. Have to thread the needle with Favre-like mustard on the ball and the recipient has to be ready AND capable of catching it. I like trying this when I play ball but I usually don’t have the precision or my teammate isn’t ready for it.
