For some, retirement looks like playing golf in Florida. For San Antonio Spurs legend Manu Ginobili it looks like donning a wig and playing in a charity basketball game.
San Antonio Spurs legends Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker reunited in China while playing in a charity basketball game. The two future Hall of Famers were participating in the Super Penguin Basketball charity game.
To give the fans a treat and to give the game a throwback feel, Manu decided to throw on a wig. The hairpiece gave Manu a full head of hair reminiscent of the flow that he had during his time with the Spurs.
Just two absolute legends having fun in retirement, you love to see it. Manu looks like he’s enjoying all of his free time. Firing up the crowd, wearing a wig, and playing basketball with an old friend. What more can you possibly want out of retirement?
All that this scene was missing was Timmy. But with the season rapidly approaching, first-year Spurs assistant coach Tim Duncan probably has his hands full.
When the Spurs came to Manu and tried to recruit him for an assistant coaching postion he said no. Marc Stein reported that Manu had told the Spurs that he wasn’t quite ready to dive back into the world of basketball just yet.
Spurs fans everywhere want nothing but the absolute best for Manu Ginobili. He deserves to take as much time just enjoying his retirement as he wants. But if he ever gets bored, if he ever gets the itch to dive back into the world of basketball, it would be amazing to see him join the Spurs coaching staff.
But until then we will have to be content with seeing Manu and Tony laughing it up and enjoying their retirements. Just two old friends, wearing wigs, playing basketball for a good cause.
