Manu Ginobili’s assist to Matt Bonner was one of the hardest passes you’ll ever see (Video)

Manu Ginobili may have a career as a left-handed reliever when his NBA playing days are over, if his pass to Matt Bonner on Friday night is any indication. The Spurs guard threw the hardest pass I’ve ever seen in a basketball game and it went to Bonner for a fourth-quarter assist against the Lakers. The stadium scoreboard listed the pass at 102 mph, but scouts sitting behind home plate said that was a slight exaggeration and had him clocked at 99. Lakers coach Mike Brown planned to counter the hard-throwing lefty with a right-handed pinch hitter off the bench.

    What an arm!  If he had been brought up here, he might have been a right fielder.  After singles to right, nobody would go from first to third on him.
