Emanuel David "Manu" Ginóbili Maccari (Spanish pronunciation: [emaˈnwel ʃiˈnoβili], born 28 July 1977) is an Argentine professional basketball player for the San Antonio Spurs of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He is also a member of the Argentine men's national basketball team. He is one of only two players, along with Bill Bradley, to have won at least a EuroLeague title, an NBA championship, and an Olympic gold medal.
Ginóbili comes from a family of professional basketball players. He spent the early part of his basketball career in Argentina and Italy, where he holds dual citizenship, and won several individual and team honors. His stint with Italian side Kinder Bologna was particularly productive; he won two Italian League MVP awards, the EuroLeague Finals MVP and the 2001 EuroLeague championship and Triple Crown. Selected as the 57th overall pick in the 1999 NBA draft, the shooting guard is considered one of the biggest draft steals of all time. Ginóbili joined the Spurs in 2002, and soon became a key player for the team. He has earned four NBA championships and was named an All-Star in 2005 and 2011. In the 2007–08 season, he was named the NBA Sixth Man of the Year. Ginóbili has also enjoyed success with the Argentina national team. He made his debut in 1998, and helped win the gold medal during the 2004 Olympics Basketball Tournament.
