No words can describe how I feel right now. As a Spurs fan I grew up watching Manu, Parker, and Duncan dominate every season. They were the most consistent team in the NBA for the most part of my life. Still I knew this day would come so #GraciasManu. Time see a new era of Spurs. https://t.co/mnI4LJKyNY
