Manu Ginobili said that he will likely retire after his current contract expires in two years.
"The truth is that I have set the date of my retirement, but I have two years left on this contract in San Antonio, and I will reach age 36," said Ginobili. "I think it may be an appropriate age to stop playing ... I never had the desire to play in the country and retire at home. I always thought about retiring at the highest level." Ginobili's unorthodox style has been a delight for NBA fans to watch, and has helped propel San Antonio to three titles --hopefully the lockout won't rob him of a productive season.

As much as I would hate to see Manu retire, I think it's the right choice. His body will just keep getting worn down if he tried to play any longer with mileage he already has. I would also hate to see him on another team, so I'd love for him to retire here.

36 years old, not a bad age to retire specially for his style of play, too many injuries.

He will be a HOF, 3 rings been a key part of the team, and great for Argentinas team

Definitely a Hall of Famer.

Ginobili is as gritty a player as they come. He has no fear getting to the rim and is as entertaining a finisher as any player who has every played the game.

He plays hard, plays through pain and injury, and has made the clutch plays to help win three championships.

No doubt Manu Ginobili is a Hall of Famer who just hasn't been inducted yet.
