Manu Ginobili featured in new ESPN Deportes SportsCenter commercial

Have you ever wondered why ESPN Deportes’ version of SportsCenter isn’t named SportsCentro? Neither have I.

San Antonio Spurs star Manu Ginobili shows up and shows off his trademark left-handed shot in a new ESPN Deportes SportsCenter commercial.

Before viewing, prepare for something that’s goofy with no real point at all, but then watch it a second time to look again at Ginobili’s reaction. It’s not bad and kind of funny.

It’s rumored Ginobili and Lionel Messi are Pope Francis’ favorite athletes. The Pope wouldn’t be the first native of Argentina to have that list,or the first in the United States or about a dozen other countries as well.

Ginobili is a transcendent player. Note the popular term, transcendent. It’s the ‘in’ word for describing greatness in athletes. But, Ginobili, really is. Leading Argentina to the gold medal at the 2004 Athens Olympics probably cemented his popularity around the world.

Ginobili, Tim Duncan and Tony Parker are now entering their 12th season playing together for the Spurs. Parker and Duncan are getting ready for their 13th season together.

With Mariano Rivera of the New York Yankees retired and leaving Derek Jeter, Parker and Duncan are the longest pair of teammates on any one team in all of American sports. The threesome of Duncan, Parker and Ginobili together is probably not matched by any teams worldwide, either.

I’m still waiting for the next HEB Grocery store chain commercial from the threesome. See the Top Six Funniest Duncan, Parker, Ginobili commericals here.

The NBA’s regular season is just around the corner. The Spurs open up their preseason Wednesday night versus CSKA Moscow and open up the regular season on October 30th at home against the Memphis Grizzlies.
