Aww, Manu Ginobili’s Bald Spot is All Grown Up Now

Have you ever watched Manu Ginobili during a Spurs game and had the urge to do this?U0eyE2P

We’ve ALL had that urge. What most of us haven’t realized, though, is that Manu’s bald spot has gone through A LOT.

Early in his career, Emmanuel “Manu” Ginobili was a clean cut kid from Argentina.

Eventually, he grew his hair out. It was all over the place, much like his style of play.

But when he cut it short in 2007, it was clear he was hiding something: a baby bald spot.

The baby bald spot just wanted to shine…

But Manu would hide it with hats…

And his teammate, Tim Duncan, covered it up whenever he had a chance.

But no matter what happened, the baby bald spot continued to grow…

It grew stronger and stronger…

And by 2010, it became a boisterous teenage bald spot.

It was slowly finding strength. When others tried to cover it up, it persevered and found a way into the light.

Soon, Ginobili’s bald spot was STRONG.

Even his teammates couldn’t take their eyes off of it.

And eventually, Ginobili became a PROUD bald spot dad. Here, Tim Duncan tries to cover it up once again…

But Ginobili is having NONE of it. “Leave my bald spot alone, Timmy!”

From then on, Ginobili and his bald spot went through tough times…

And good times…

And they even won over the bald spot’s biggest hater, Tim Duncan.

Ginobili’s teammates were inspired by the way he and his bald spot carried themselves.

And now in 2015, Ginobili’s bald spot is all grown up and IMPOSSIBLE to miss.gino-full-on-495014904
