Jazz Vs. Spurs: Manu Ginobili, Purveyor Of Fine GIFs

Manu Ginobili is the craftiest man on the court in this Jazz vs. Spurs series. I think it's a left-handed, right-brain creative intellectual thing. Look, I don't know.

On Sunday, he threw a sweet pump fake to get Grizzlies forward DeMarre Carroll in the air, then breezed around him for a sweet dunk. Take a look (or ten) for yourself:

It wasn't even a violent fake. Just vintage, old-man YMCA ball. Classic.

This is a good time to point out that Ginobili makes the best random GIFs. Most off the NBA's best moving Internet picture things come from Blake Griffin dunks, LeBron James chasedown blocks and flopping. Lots of flopping.

Not Manu. He makes pump-fake GIFs, like this one. He makes fastball pass GIFs. He makes bat-swatting (!!!) GIFs. He's is a GIF-maker unlike any other, and we love him for it.
