Come vote and move four Manu shots to the Sweet 16.
Welcome to Round 1 of the The MANU Tournament, where today we will be voting on Manu Ginobili’s best shots of all time. Known for being extremely clutch, even after a poor shooting night or while fighting off an injury, Ginobili was never one to shy away from the moment. Considering how big that “moment” is in the postseason, there’s a reason the majority of the shots below are from the playoffs.
In true NCAA Tournament format, each play has been seeded one through eight, going head-to-head with its opposite seed (1 vs. 8, 2 vs. 7, etc.), and the winners will advance to the Sweet 16 next week. Be sure to vote for a winner of each match-up, and remember everyone can only vote once, so make yours count. If you haven’t already, go back and vote for Round 1 of Assists/Passes and Blocks.
Without further ado, here are Manu’s completely undisputed top eight shots of all time!
1 vs. 8
1. OT three vs. Thunder (Game 6, 2014 WCF)
8. Broken elbow half-court heave vs. Grizzlies (Game 6, 2011)
4 vs. 5
4. Step-back three vs. Heat (Game 5, 2014 Finals)
5. Accidental three vs. Knicks (2018)
