Manu Ginobili has hilarious reaction to Tim Duncan joining Spurs as assistant
Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan still have quality banter all these years later.
The San Antonio Spurs announced on Monday that Duncan, the retired five-time champion, would be joining coach Gregg Popovich’s staff as an assistant along with former team video coordinator Will Hardy. Ginobili had a hilarious reaction to the news, choosing to focus exclusively on the Hardy angle.
Awesome news! So happy for him!
Always knew Will Hardy was gonna make it to the front of the bench! https://t.co/PWI6adr4Ck

Ginobili and Duncan were, of course, two-thirds of San Antonio’s famous Big Three along with Tony Parker. In their 14 seasons together as teammates, the two players won four titles. They also made a combined 17 All-NBA teams and 17 All-Star teams for their NBA careers, which were all spent with the Spurs.
Now we just have to decide whether Ginobili’s reaction to Duncan’s new gig was funnier than Coach Popovich’s reaction to it.
