If it’s June, it must be about time for Manu Ginobili to claim another prize from Express-News readers as the most popular Spurs player.
Ginobili earned his fifth gold medal in the last six seasons as the most popular Spurs player award in balloting for the
Tim Duncan earned silver and TonyParker earned the bronze from Express-News readers. Parker earned the critic’s choice honors.
It’s not a surprise that “The Big Three” again dominated the annual balloting. Ginobili has won every season in the last six except for 2009, where he was hampered by injuries and earned the bronze. Parker won the gold that season.
I always look forward to the annual balloting to learn all kinds of neat information about the city. It’s interesting to see if any new restaurants, sporting goods stores, radio personalities or spas pop up on the list.
But over the years, there has been little shuffling among the most popular Spurs.
And it’s that way again this year.
