Gregg Popovich joked about Ginobili’s new role at Spurs

Emanuel Ginobili will return to work at the San Antonio Spurs, where he retired from professional activity as a basketball player in 2018, and coach Gregg Popovich, a master of irony, provided details of his ex-director’s new role.

“He’s going to do everything, help with management, train, browse, probably plan a two-week trip to Italy, I could go with him,” he said. PopovichLaughing, during the dialogue with the press, about the Bahian, who will take over as “special operations advisor” for the Texan team where he got four NBA rings and was there for 16 seasons.

According to information that the specialized journalist Adrián Wojnarowski pointed out days ago on his social networks, the left-hander will focus on the player development both on and off the court.

“We love this guy, he’s Manu Ginobili and who wouldn’t want to have him around”, said the coach, while joking about the reasons that led the Bahiense to accept the position: “His wife needed him to leave the house.”

Ginobili will thus face his first activity in basketball after his retirement, which occurred at the age of 40, with which he took the opportunity to dedicate himself to his family and enjoy free time.

Since their exit in the 2018 playoffs, with elimination against future champions Golden State Warriors, the Spurs have qualified to just one of three postseason, breaking a streak of 22 years in a row qualifying for the playoffs under Popovich.
