San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili got a standing ovation Monday from fans after exiting what could have been his last game in the NBA.

Ginobili, 39, said he will take his time and talk it over with his family before deciding whether to retire. He has spent his entire 15-year NBA career with San Antonio, winning four championships.

Ginobili said whatever he’ll do, he’ll be a “happy camper.”



The Spurs lost at home Monday to the Golden State Warriors, 129-115, eliminating them from the playoffs.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said he gave Ginobili, who normally comes off the bench, the start to honor him.
