Manu Ginobli said he would consider retirement following the NBA Finals, but after taking some time to stew over that coulda-shoulda Game 6 against Miami, he seems ready to get back on the court. He expressed his feelings on the matter for a local paper in Argentina, La Nación.
“After much thinking, going over and over the bad plays, I feel better and content in spite of the bad outcome, and I find it difficult to believe that I won’t play anymore,” he wrote in La Nación.
“I don’t feel exhausted or frustrated playing basketball, I mean not enough to say I’m done. I don’t know about everything; I haven’t made a decision, but I see it is unlikely that I will not play anymore.
“I try not to let the tree in front of me block the forest. This is practically an unbeatable situation in sports. A moment of anger and frustration should not cloud the day-to-day and how well I am doing over here.
Consider it considered. Ginobli also added that he'd like to return to the Spurs but is still unable to talk to the team due to NBA rules.
