On Sunday, Ginobili, 41, shared a photo of his full-head-of-hair self from 20 years ago. It was taken before his first practice with a team in Italy, Basket Viola Reggio Calabria. The then-21-year-old had left his native Argentina to start a career in Europe.
The longtime Spur said in the caption that he was excited to play in Europe.
Me acota mi apuntadora (?) que hace justo 20 años, un flaquito alto de nariz prominente salía desde Bahía Blanca con sus padres rumbo a Reggio Calabria. Dicen que el pibito estaba lleno de ilusiones y muy entusiasmado por empezar su carrera europea. Antes del primer entrenamiento, se sacaba esta foto. 🤚
Ginobili has yet to confirm whether he's retiring or coming back for another season. He has a year left on the two-year, $5 million
The latest buzz is that Ginobili is expected to make a decision sometime this week. Thankfully, experts say it's likely Ginobili will keep on balling.
