Poll coming discuss.
Tough choice. Bullshit poll.
Manu was a great supporting player, but in no way was he a franchise guy. Couldnt lead a team deep into the playoffs.
cue DAF saying "HE WON N DE OLIMPACS!"
At least Manu won an Olympic Gold medal. Unlike Tim Duncan.
He's overrated by some Spurs fans and underrated by other NBA fans.
To answer the question: 3
without duncan, manu would win more than or equal to the amount of championships won by the phoenix suns franchise from 1968 (inception) till 2025.
now for a harder question:
how many MVPs, ROYs, COYs, ALL NBAers do the phoenix suns need on the same team to win a ring? I say 1 MVP, 1 COY, 3 all nba and another 2-3 all stars at minimum
I'm surprised ""I love Nazis" isn't winning. Must be a rally going on right now or something.
To clarify: Manufan bugs me, I have respect for Manu as a player. Lets say they have a healthy Manu instead of Josh Howard in 2006 and the Mavs probably win the finals.
@ homer spur fans who think Manu could ever carry a team. Obvious answer is zero.
Hey OP how many rings does Scottie win without MJ?
Dirk would be ringless even with the Spurs cast. Even if he miraculously developed the best low post game in the league and become the best defensive anchor in the league like Timmy, his destiny of being a choker would probably get in the way and keep him ringless.
Dirk can carry a team to the NBA finals, something Manu has never been able to do.
Tim Duncan- hall of famer
Dirk Nowitzki - hall of famer
Manu Ginobili - not a hall of famer
NBA basketball is in a league of its own, stop harping on the Olympics. Do you seriously think Manu can carry a team to the NBA finals as the alpha dog, yes or no? It's a simple question.
would he take dirk's 06 team to the finals? of course not that team was built around dirk specifically. if you build a team around him though, with a solid low post prescence and the right pieces to surround that they'd be sucessful no doubt and at the very least a tough playoff team.
So you're saying someone with a career average of 14.8 points per game who has made 1 all star game and has a grand total of 1 3rd all NBA team honors and no 2nd or 1st all NBA team honors is capable of being the alpha dog on a championship team, and you're calling my logic flawed?
We 11 Nazis on the board.
Manu is a great 2nd/3rd option. Deadly in the clutch. Alpha Dog? Nope.
We got ourselves a bunch o' Natzi lovin sumbitches in here. Don't worry, the Basterds and I will sniff you sauerkraut sandwich eatin fucks out and give you a little somethin you can't take off.
I'll tell you one thing. I'd swap Barbosa + JRich for Ginobili annnnnnnyday of the fucking week.
