Manu Ginobili and Boris Diaw Reunite in Tim Duncan's Native U.S. Virgin Islands for Celebrity Basketball Game


Former Spurs players gathered for a special basketball game on the U.S. Virgin Islands, and yes it was likely as glorious as it sounds.

According to a tweet shared Monday by Patrick "Pat the Roc" Robinson, Tim Duncan invited the basketball trainer and retired Spurs favorites to his stomping grounds for a "celebrity basketball game" over the weekend.
While no one's shared a full roster with the Current, we do know Manu Ginobili and Boris Diaw were part of the fun. The goofy pair were on the winning team, along with Robinson, who said he dropped 40 points during the game.

An Instagram post reveals that the retired NBA stars may have participated in the celebrity game as part of local high school's basketball event.

Fans in the comments asked the players to share clips of the game, but none have done so. Seeing how many of the Spurs players sparsely use social media, fans may just need to live with their FOMO.
