Manu Ginobili took to Twitter today and announced the end of his legendary career.
The 41-year-old guard, who spent the last 16 years with the San Antonio Spurs and won four NBA titles, had one year, $2.5M, left on his contract with the team, however he decided to retire.
Ginobili had won the gold medal with Argentina in the 2004 Olympic Games, while he also was a two-time NBA All-Star.
Today, with a wide range of feelings, I'm announcing my retirement from basketball. IMMENSE GRATITUDE to everyone (family, friends, teammates, coaches, staff, fans) involved in my life in the last 23 years. It's been a fabulous journey. Way beyond my wildest dreams. pic.twitter.com/3MLCUtmd6K
