Manu Ginobili’s Clutch Play Vs. Houston Led To Hilarious Memes

San Antonio Spurs legend Manu Ginobili is playing out the last few chapters of his career in the NBA. Although his contributions to the Spurs over the years are undeniable — he’s won 4 NBA titles — Ginobili has definitely showed his age the last two seasons. But during a pivotal game 5 matchup versus the Houston Rockets in the NBA playoffs, the 39-year-old showed he’s still got some gas left in the tank.

With Spurs star Kawhi Leonard out with an ankle injury for most of the game, Ginobili stepped up and made several clutch shots late in the game to keep his team close. In the dying seconds of overtime, with the Spurs trying to hold on to a 3-point lead, Ginobili made a defensive play that ended the Rockets’ hopes of a comeback.

Just as Rockets star James Harden went up to shoot a potential game-tying three pointer, Ginobili came up from behind and completely stuffed his attempt.

The Spurs won the game and took a 3-2 lead in their series against the Rockets.

Soon, people were calling for a new NBA logo:

And rewriting history:

Some wondered how Ginobili’s old teammate, Tim Duncan, would react:

Others reimagined this iconic barbershop scene from “Coming to America.”

What was Ginobili thinking during the game? Here’s some speculation:

Ginobili’s block was so savage Twitter user @brohsen suggested Harden had to lose a little of his beard:

Not only were people praising Ginobili…

They were also roasting Harden:

Did Harden choke? That’s up for debate. That block? Picture perfect.

The emotion of the close game was too much for some people…

For others, it just confirmed that Ginobili status as a Spurs legend should never be questioned.

The Spurs and the Rockets will face off again on Thursday, May 11 in Houston and, if needed, Sunday May 14 in San Antonio.

These Things Can Shake The Confidence Of Any Dude No Matter How Cocky He Is

If you’re like me, your self-esteem is a house of cards even on your most confident days. Your hair’s never right. You suck in your gut even when you’re alone. And, even if you’re not the self-conscious type, sometimes all it takes to crumble your ego is a series of innocuous incidents strung together in rapid fire. Here’s how it happens.

There are days when your whole look is on point.

Got a fresh haircut. Your outfit is killing it. You’re optimistic and confident about how others will see you.

But then something happens to knock you down.

This always seems to happen on those rare days when for once you were actually feeling good about yourself.

Like when Snapchat filters won’t recognize your face shape.

WTF? How? These days it even picks up on dogs.

Or your friends set you up on blind dates with people who don’t find you remotely attractive.

Your friends set you up with someone they think is “perfect for you.” But, when you see them all you want to do is RUN.

Maybe a caricature artist’s rendering of you ends up looking a little too much like you.

You indulged a street “artist” offering to sketch your caricature because, why not? Too bad the final product’s less of a caricature, and more of an accurate representation of what you look like in real life. That mole you were once insecure about has come back to haunt you.

But nothing shakes your confidence like being offered money to appear as an extra in police lineups.

Your IMDB page lists you as “Weird-looking Creep #4.”

Except for when you try to make eye contact with someone and they swerve you.

You really must be a sight to behold, friend. Woof!

But not as bad as when your ‘friends’ ask you to take the group photo just so you can’t be in it.

At first, you think someone’ll take turns with you after you get the shot, but then that never happens, and you’re standing there like a paparazzi photog taking selfies of someone you only recognize as the sad version of yourself.

No doubt, today was hard on your self-esteem, but maybe tomorrow will be different.

Beauty, as they say, is in the eye of the beholder.

Also, have you considered getting glasses or growing a beard? Seriously, anything to cover up some of that… JK, you’re the teen dream. Handsome AF.
