Oklahoma City Thunder: Ginobili praises OKC’s Big Three
There lots of comparisons between the Thunder and the Spurs, current combatants in the Western Conference. The most common comparison is the Big Three nature of both teams.
Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and James Harden for the Thunder. Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili for the Spurs.
A lottery-luck superstar with all the attributes you want to build a franchise around. A wonderfully-skilled point guard unlike any other in the league. And a left-handed sixth man who can score through a keyhole. But a day after leading the Spurs to a 101-98 victory in Game 1, Ginobili wasn’t really buying the comparisons.
“We never had those kinds of legs and athleticism,” Ginobili said Monday at the Spurs’ training facility. “They are just amazing. Their strength, their speed. And they can all shoot, too.”
The Thunder trio is all under 24. The Spur trio is all over 30.
“We were just a different kind of players,” Ginobili said. “But of course, they have a bright, bright future ahead of them. They are really impressive. For being 22 and 23 years old, they are incredible.”
