    i feel for Ginobli, he is a big part of the team. We will miss him, especially since he was playing so good. Hope the other guys step up. Hope he comes back soon. The team needs his leadership and spirit.

    Oh how we will miss him! To me Manu is essential to the chemistry of the team. His spirit and energy are help spark the team at critical times. The young will now have to step up. Better now than at playoff time.
