Manu Ginobili claims that his relationship with Spurs' Coach Gregg Popovich is fine, according to The Rocky Mountain News.

Popovich had spoken out about not wanting his prized guard to play in the Olympics because of a lingering ligament problem in his left ankle.

"I talked to Pop, and he's definitely fine," Ginobili said. "He understands the whole situation. He understands the way I feel about all of this (playing for his country). I bet my (butt) that if Pop was a player, he'd have done the same thing. I'm totally sure about what I've done. I'm proud, and I'm happy."

Ginobili did not play in the bronze medal game after aggravating his ankle on Friday against the USA.

"I can walk. I can jog even," Ginobili said. "But running like you need to run in a game like this, I couldn't. So I didn't try to be a hero... I only could have damaged the team."

He's playing for his country.  Wade has had physical problems the last two seasons and Miami didn't *** he played in the Olympics.  Get over it SA.  I'm proud of you Manu.

The Spurs should be glad it happened now instead of during training camp or early in the season, when it'll matter.
