Manu Ginobili flung up a final few jumpers at the end of practice Saturday, then wandered over to do time with the gathered media.
What the Spurs guard said mattered far less than how he looked and felt.
Unlike the eve of last year’s postseason, there was no constricting blue brace strapped to Ginobili’s right arm. His elbow is fine. Hand, too. The ankles, knees, nose and abdomen? All shipshape, thanks for asking.
Incredibly for this time of year in South Texas, Ginobili doesn’t even report any allergies.
“No complaints,” he said.
For the Spurs, hoping to parlay this year’s No. 1 seed in the Western Conference into a deeper run than last year, that is certainly good news.
