“Today, with a wide range of feelings, I’m announcing my retirement from basketball. Immense gratitude to everyone (family, friends, teammates, coaches, staff, fans) involved in my life in the last 23 years. It’s been a fabulous journey. Way beyond my wildest dreams”. Manu Ginobili’s tweet. a couple of days ago. You know something, Manu? YOU are beyond our wildest dreams! We are starving for guys like you in this impoverished country! And I’m not talking about our political and economic catastrophe. I’m referring to our lost values, the values you have embodied with such excellence for so long: effort, hard work, resilience, honesty, fair play, respect, dignity. You are such a role model, Manu, such a huge example to follow.  You are worthy of admiration, a truly inspiring human being. THANKS!
