Fitting honor: Spurs' Ginobili meets his statue in Argentina
AUG 31, 2014 12:03p ET
Friday, Ginobili tweeted a photo of himself standing next to his freshly dedicated sculpture in his native country of Argentina.
His tweet roughly translates (via Google translator) to: "Mom, I may not have become a doctor, but they made me a statue in Buenos Aires!"
A statue is the least Argentina could do for their best basketball export, right?
The four-time NBA champion, 2004 Olympic gold-medal winner and former Sixth Man of the Year recipient is recovering from a leg injury that prevented him from playing in this year's World Cup.
