The San Antonio Spurs honored Manu Ginobili on Thursday retiring his #20 jersey. The 41-year-old spent his whole NBA career with the Texans and won four championships before calling it a day last summer.

It was an emotional ceremony at the AT&T Center with a plethora of former teammates present. Tony Parker, Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan were among those who talked about Ginobili’s career.

Ginobili’s special night was combined with the Spurs defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers. His former team is now just one win away from booking its 2019 NBA playoffs ticket.
