In a recent interview with canchallena.com, San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili says that he has at least two or three years more as a basketball player and stressed that his intention is to finish his career with the Spurs.
“I do not have much left, I am 34 years old. I have two or three years, I will take some time to analyze things and then decide on what to do,” Ginobili said.
“I have two years left on my contract with San Antonio and my intention is not to play in another team and to retire as a Spur.”
Ginobili as talked about playing in the 2012 London 2012 Olympics.
“At the time I renewed my contract (with San Antonio) it was completely clear that in 2011 and 2012, I was going to play for Argentina, no question. They tried to convince me, but the Olympic game is non-negotiable ” said Ginobili.
Beyond the Olympics, Ginobili is aware that the NBA lockout will force him to make a decision about his immediate future, which may include Virtus Bologna of Italy.
