After 16 years, San Antonio Spurs legend Manu Ginobili is calling it a career. The iconic Argentine baller has four NBA championships, an Olympic gold medal and a sixth man of the year award in his trophy case and some consider him a Hall of Famer for his production, competitive fire and help to grow the game. Others respect Ginobili's career but feel he is not Hall of Fame worthy. What do you think? 🏀

Manu Ginobili is currently the Spurs' leader in three-pointers made and attempted, steals and offensive box plus/minus according to Basketball-Reference.com. But is he a Hall of Famer?

Just look at his list of accomplishments. How is Ginobili not worthy of the Hall of Fame? 

Ginobili played the game with unbridled passion and joy, piling up championships and Olympic medal. He helped grow the sport in Argentina, almost single-handed. He also revolutionized the use of the Euro step in the league, to the point where it has now become the standard weapon for most players. Ginobili has done so much to help the game and deserves to be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame.

Ginobili was a great player for the Spurs and was a building block for that championship dynasty. But he was no Tim Duncan. Ginobili may have given the game the Euro step, but there have been plenty of great players that haven't been great enough for the Hall of Fame. He made an impact, but he's definitely not one of the greatest players to ever play the game. 

Manu Ginobili shouldn't be in Springfield.
