Manu Ginobili and Spurs finalizing new contract

Manu Ginobili plans to push back retirement for at least one more season, as he and the Spurs are finalizing a contract that will bring Ginobili back for his 16 season in San Antonio, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

No, the moment that told us that Ginobili still had another season in his 39-year-old legs - he turns 40 on July 28 - came one game earlier.

So, to put the icing on the cake, Ginobili confirmed on Twitter that he will return to San Antonio for another season.

A four-time National Basketball Association champion, Ginobili has played in 992 regular-season games and made 212 postseason appearances, while being named an All-Star on two occasions, in addition to garnering all-NBA recognition twice.

Originally taken in the second round of the 1999 NBA Draft, Ginobili was a key member of Spurs teams that won NBA Titles in 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2014.

Despite posting his worst numbers ever-and despite the Spurs' season ending in a sweep by the eventual champions from Golden State-Manu still lit up the league, as he has for his entire 15-year career. The fans in San Antonio love him, and over the years he has shown great energy, passion and relentlessness while playing in the San Antonio Spurs uniform. He has played in five NBA Finals with San Antonio. Ginobili contributed 17 points in Game 1.

He averaged 6.6 points in 16 postseason games, but perked up against the Warriors in the West championship series, contributing 13.8 points in 20.2 minutes per game. It's about how I feel.
