Manu Ginobili has announced his retirement at age 41, ending a career in which he helped the San Antonio Spurs win four NBA championships in 16 seasons with the club.

Ginobili’s pro career lasted 23 seasons in all, starting with stints in Italy and his native Argentina before he came to San Antonio in 2002. He formed what was a “Big 3” with the Spurs, alongside Tim Duncan and Tony Parker.

On Monday, that era for the Spurs was officially over: Duncan has been retired, and Parker elected this summer to sign with the Charlotte Hornets.

Ginobili, the No. 57 pick in the 1999 draft, averaged 13.3 points and 3.8 assists in 1,057 regular-season games. He was a two-time All-Star and was the league’s Sixth Man of the Year in 2008.
