NBA News: Manu Ginobili leads Hall of Famer class

Manu Ginobili is inducted into the Hall of Fame. This was announced by the Hall of Fame on Saturday. The Argentine will be honored in September along with twelve other members of the 2022 class.

Ginobili won four NBA titles with the San Antonio Spurs and was a two-time All-Star, but his career is even more impressive when you look at international successes: he is the first player after Bill Bradley to be the NBA and EuroLeague champion and was able to win an Olympic gold medal.

“I was part of two incredible teams,” Ginobili said of the award. “If it hadn’t been me, I wouldn’t be here. It’s not about individual achievements. I’ve never been a top scorer, an MVP, or a member of an All-NBA First Team. I’m here because of my environment, the players and the coaches who I’ve worked with. I know I’ve been very fortunate.”

Ginobili spent his entire 16-year NBA career with the Spurs, celebrating his greatest international success at the 2004 Olympics with Argentina.
