Golden State Warriors advance to NBA Finals

Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durant stands with members of the media using his smartphone to take pictures of his mother, not pictured, posing with the trophy after their 129-115 win over the San Antonio Spurs in Game 4 of the National Basketball Association. Ginobili and the Spurs were eliminated by Golden State in the Western Conference Finals on Monday night, leaving many speculating about the 39-year-old's future. He also won a gold medal with the Argentina National team in the 2004 Olympics.

Spurs forward Kyle Anderson performed a nice double-clutch reverse dunk, but the judges were critical.

However, is it enough to consider him a Hall of Famer when it's all said and done?

LAST GAME? Manu Ginobili waves as he leaves the court after the Golden State Warriors defeated the San Antonio Spurs in Game 4 of the 2017 NBA Western Conference Finals.

The competitive portion of this series ended when Leonard suffered his ankle injury in Game 1 and the Warriors completed their furious comeback.

The Argentinean has spent his entire 15-year career with the Spurs, averaging 13.6 points on 44.7 percent shooting along with 3.6 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.4 steals in 992 career regular-season games.

Pressed on whether it would be his last game ever in north London he replied: "I can not tell you that". "We have to do our job, we are professionals".

Ginobili said he will sit down with his wife Marianela in three weeks and make a decision on whether he will play another season. Following their Game 4 win over the Spurs, Joe Lacob was asked how much redemption is on his mind. “Overall, I think weve done a great job locking in on the defensive side, scrambling around, trying to take away teams No. 1 option. He finished with 15 points in a frenzied 32 minutes in Game 4 against Golden State. "Whatever I decide, it's going to be great". While addressing his potential retirement, Ginobili said he got the feeling that the Spurs fans gathered at the arena and television analysts wanted him to hang up the boots.

The other one is to stay at home.

Do you think the Warriors will win this year's Finals?

"You know, for moments, I felt like I didn't in the Memphis series". "They've been the best team in the west for the last few years and they proved it again. I said, 'Ok, it's on"'. He continued, saying Ginobili's willingness to come off the bench has been a big reason for the Spurs' success. "I'll just leave it at that".

So yes, in that locker room and on the floor, Durant is, as Curry told me back in January, "one of us".
