Manu Ginobili: Retirement in 2-3 Years a ‘High Possibility’

by August 08, 2011

Manu Ginobili continues to tell the media in Argentina that he could hang up his sneakers for good in a couple of years. From the Express-News: “Of course, Ginobili will be 36 when his contract with the Spurs expires in two years, so it is hardly a surprise that he said he didn’t know how he might feel about continuing his career once that contract expires. With translation help from my friend, Joe Alvarez, here is Ginobili’s response to the question, posed by the El Tribuno reporter, ‘How much longer until Manu leaves basketball?’ Ginobili: ‘I’m going to play for two more years for sure. When that day comes and I’m a free agent with open possibilities, I’m going to decide if I want to continue to pay, or not; if I do it in SA, or if I go somewhere else. There is a high probability that I’ll ‘leave’ in two or three years, but I don’t want to say yes or no because I don’t know.'”
