Manu Ginobili gets statue of himself in Argentina

Aug 30, 2014, 9:30 PM EDT

Manu Ginobili is likely done playing for Argentina. He’s not in Spain to play in the World Cup this year, his recovery from a stress fracture in his leg had not come along far enough (Ginobili admitted there is still pain) and so the Spurs shut him down.

But he is still a legend in Argentina, the best basketball player that country has ever produced. So they gave him a statue, something he tweeted out.

The statue is in Buenos Aires, in case you were looking to travel to get your picture with it. Although, from this photo, not sure about that likeness. Maybe it’s better in person.

The San Antonio Express News doesn’t really have any other details, but glad they noticed this.
