Ginobili Expects To Return In 14-15

Manu Ginobili signed a two-year, $14 million contract with the San Antonio Spurs just a few weeks after their difficult loss in The Finals.

Ginobili has rounded from a disappointing 12-13 regular season.

"I had a terrible season," said Ginobili. "I had a season where I had three tears in my hamstring, and I could never get in rhythm and it was starting to play in my head. This year, I had none (of that). ... I've been healthy. I've been strong, and I'm not thinking about my body. I'm thinking about the game. That completely changes everything.

"Overall, I just sometimes look at this team, look at what we've accomplished, and say, 'I'm 36, about to be 37, playing big minutes, playing well, enjoying the situation?' I'm very lucky."

Ginobili is averaging 12.5 points (on 46.8% shooting), 4.4 assists and 23.0 minutes per game this season.

"Even before I signed for the two years, I thought, 'OK, I want to sign for two years because I can and because they want me for two years, so I'm going to do it,' " he said. "But I wasn't sure that I was going to play both, depending on how I felt. But after seeing how I feel and how I still enjoy (the game), I'm pretty sure I'm going to play (both seasons)."
