In the midst of the offseason, San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili (and maybe Gregg Popovich) took in an Ed Sheeran concert.

August is usually a quiet month for the NBA, with the exception of the Kyrie Irving trade that’s in the balance, as Isaiah Thomas’ hip gets sorted out before the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics settle on an official trade. The San Antonio Spurs were involved, but things obviously went in a different direction.

Meanwhile, the Spurs will get ready for the 2017-18 NBA season, which kicks off for the team on Wednesday, Oct. 18 vs the Minnesota Timberwolves. Manu Ginobili will be there for this and the rest of the season.

At age 40, this could be Ginobili’s final year. This was said before and probably will be again by the end of the 2017-18 season. He’s prepping for it in an interesting and entertaining (depends on your music taste), however, with attending an Ed Sheeran concert. Head coach Gregg Popovich may have been there, too, according to these Twitter users:

This SB Nation post has a photo of Ginobili at the event.

It should be noted the concert took place at the AT&T Center, where the Spurs play, so it seems to be just Ginobili and (maybe) Popovich taking in a night at the arena.

This could be one of the last “easy” weeks before the main preparation begins for the NBA regular season. That’s training camp and preseason games, the latter of which starts in October. Maybe a Sheeran concert gets things off to a light start for Popovich and Ginobili.
