When Nando De Colo saw his name on the Summer League roster, there were reports stating that he was unsure why he was needing to head to Las Vegas to play with the team. Greg Popovich dubbed him as the mini-manu. I am still scratching my head at this as that would imply that he could do the things that Ginobili does on the floor.
Well, no. Know where near.
In Vegas, De Colo’s performance was not one to talk about. Though he averaged 11.3 points and 4.0 assists per game the combo guard also shot just 34 percent from the field, committed 3.3 turnovers per game and fouled 4.3 times per game.
The only thing that can be compared to between De Colo and Ginobili is where they were drafted to start their careers. Late in the second-round. Yeah, that is it.
