I would say that this was a “vintage” Manu Ginobili performance, but I don’t remember him ever having a reputation for simply burying teams under a barrage of buckets, so what he did tonight against the Blazers wouldn’t count as such. Certainly, he did sometimes do that, but that wasn’t his game, usually.
This would be a vintage Ginobili performance if he spent the whole time flopping.
When I watch Ginobili do stuff like this, recalling the Golden Age of Argentine Basketball, I start to think about what happened to Carlos Delfino. Luis Scola, I know what happened to him, he died after accidentally cutting a bit off his hair, but Delfino, man, that guy was sweet. And he’s disappeared. I’m sure a simple Google search would tell me what he’s up to, but my hands are quivering too much to type and I can barely see the screen through my tears.
Hopefully this description turned out okay, because I’m a mess right now. Delfino, come home to Milwaukee. Please.
