Spurs rookie Harrison Ingram has already learned a lot from Manu Ginobili

SAN ANTONIO – In their first week as NBA players, the San Antonio Spurs rookies have already learned from one of the best Spurs to ever don the silver and black.

Manu Ginobili sat down with Spurs rookies Stephon Castle and Harrison Ingram for dinner to share some advice on playing in the NBA and what to expect in their first season.

When our KSAT sports team asked Ingram what he remembers most about the dinner, he listed the impact the experience had on him, even though he, like Ginobili, was selected in the second round of the draft.

“I mean, first of all, how normal he is, you know, he’s Manu Ginobili, you know, the sixth man of the year, the best sixth man of all time,” Ingram said. “You know, three, four-time champion. But you know, when you talk to him, he’s just a regular guy. He said he didn’t even suspect it when he got drafted, he didn’t know he was going to get drafted, he didn’t expect to get drafted, especially coming from the Spurs and then coming from the 56th pick, he said it wasn’t easy. I mean, he didn’t give anything, he had to earn everything and really just for him, he said it’s such a good organization to be in the Spurs organization for those late picks to develop and get your chance and get a fair shot.”

The rookies also enjoyed themselves during the press conference, with Ingram taking the time to ask questions during Castle’s press conference.

The Spurs Summer League squad travels to Sacramento on Friday for the California Classic and will face their first opponent, the Charlotte Hornets, on Saturday night.
