If you're still in your feelings over Manu Ginobili's retirement, grab the tissues, 'cause you're about to have a good cry.

While many of the Argentinean's former teammates tweeted their congratulations to the longtime Spur immediately after the announcement, former Spur Danny Green went all out with a lengthy Instagram post.
Green reflected on the good times during the pair's eight seasons together with the Spurs – from trying to perfect the Euro step and being inspired by him on the court to bonding with Ginobili's sons and being able to call him a "friend and brother."

Just before Ginobili's retirement announcement, Green spoke about his former teammate during a segment of Inside the Green Room. He weighed whether Ginobili would return or not, but also noted his relationship with Ginobili on and off the court.
