SAN ANTONIO (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – Manu Ginobili announced on Wednesday that he is resigning with the San Antonio Spurs, the only NBA team he has known in his 11-year career.
Ginobili tweeted that he is staying with the team he has helped win three NBA titles and nearly a fourth last month.
Ginobili, who turns 36 next month, battled injuries during the season and said he would think about retirement after the playoffs. But he helped the Spurs come within 28 seconds of the championship before falling to the Miami Heat in seven games, and his return ensures their longtime Big Three of he, Tim Duncan and Tony Parker will be in place next season.
