Spurs' Manu Ginobili 'tired,' considering retirement
Manu Ginobili told reporters Saturday that he's considering retirement after a physically taxing season with the San Antonio Spurs.
"For three quarters of the season it was the physical part," Ginobili said. "I'd say, 'No, I can't deal with this anymore. I'm tired of rehab and trying to be in shape all the time.'
"But at this point I'm fine physically, so you are a little more optimistic. But you know, it's been 18 years doing this. You kind of get tired and you want to enjoy a little more time at home sometimes. You go back to Argentina to see your people, and you think about it. I'm going to have time for that, too."
Ginobili has struggled mightily in the Finals, averaging just 7.5 points and 3.0 assists to 1.8 turnovers against Miami. His role has been decreased, but he remains San Antonio's primary ball-handler off the bench.
Ginobili has hinted in the past about finishing his career playing in Argentina instead of the NBA. Should the Spurs win the title, you have to wonder if Ginobili will decide then to walk away.
