Wow, that Ginobli pass— Paul Flannery (@Pflanns) May 28, 2013
The Memphis Grizzlies were doing everything possible just to contain the San Antonio Spurs in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals, but when you've got a dude with the confidence to make this pass, there's not much you can do.
Generally when you see a guy toss a pass between another player's legs, it's a quick pass that only travels a few feet.
Ginobili, however, could probably nutmeg a guy standing at half court all the way from the baseline, hitting a teammate in stride in the process.
This pass from the clever Argentinian really puts his game in the smallest of nutshells. How many other players in the past decade of the NBA even try this pass, let alone end up making it work?
It's really something you've got to watch more than once from varying angles and at different speeds to totally appreciate.
Just watched that Manu pass through Prince's legs 4 times, twice in slow motion.— John Schuhmann (@johnschuhmann) May 28, 2013
There has to be some sort of connection between his Argentinian roots, a culture that's so impacted by soccer, and Ginobili's ability to make these graceful, soccer-style moves with a basketball in his hands.
Manu Ginobili is the NBA's best soccer player.— Marcel Mutoni (@marcel_mutoni) May 28, 2013
Take that, Steve Nash.
