Spurs' Ginobili will be in demand

Quote:
The Spurs began this season needing to see what a 32-year-old had left. What they've witnessed over the last three weeks should be evidence enough. Ginobili is himself again, finishing at the rim and running down the league's best athletes to block dunks and change games.

“The last 21/2 weeks, Manu's had his lift and quickness,” says coach Gregg Popovich, whose opinion as president of basketball operations is vital to the process. “He's making better decisions because his rhythm is back. He feels more confident in his shot.”

Ginobili plays only to win but is not naive to the effect his renewal has.

“Maybe I do (have more leverage),” he said. “I think I've showed everybody I'm still healthy and can still play.”

General manager R.C. Buford talks regularly with Ginobili's agent, but the Spurs have not told Herb Rudoy they want to pre-empt free agency.

“I don't think they've felt any rush to do this because they have exclusive rights until July 1, so they've felt no pressure,” Rudoy said.

But the window is closing fast. Ginobili will listen if the Spurs want to talk extension, but only before season's end.

“Of course, it will depend on the amount and the years,” he said.

If the Spurs' final game ends without agreement, Ginobili will test the market in July. What should frighten the Spurs about that prospect is the number of teams that have created room under the NBA's salary cap to make runs at big-name free agents this summer.

“You've got all these teams with all this money, and only one can sign LeBron (James),” Rudoy said. “His heart is really in San Antonio, but the onus is not on me, it's on the other side of the table to want to discuss this. I'd be surprised if they let him go to free agency, but it's their decision.”

Ginobili is awesome. I'd take him on the Raptors in a second even with the injury concerns. When he plays hes one of the funnest players in the league to watch, and hes always trying to make the winning play. And dude never takes a play off. His style is fucking sick.
