"IMMENSE GRATITUDE to everyone (family, friends, teammates, coaches, staff, fans) involved in my life in the last 23 years".

The two-time All-Star and the 2008 Sixth Man of the Year took to Twitter on Monday afternoon to announce his retirement from the San Antonio Spurs and the National Basketball Association.

He's also won four NBA titles alongside Duncan and Parker, was named an NBA all-star twice, was the NBA's sixth man of the year in 2008 and was twice an All-NBA Third Team selection. "It's been a fabulous journey". The 16-year veteran had yet to make a decision on his future, according to the report. Parker signed a two-year deal with the Charlotte Hornets earlier this summer after leaving the keys to the point guard position for young Dejounte Murray midway through last season.

Mr McCain was well-respected across the political spectrum in the United States for both his military and political service. John McCain (R-Ariz.) was widely memorialized Sunday following his death Saturday. "He put country before self", Ryan said.

Drafted in the second round of the 1999 NBA Draft, Ginobili has enjoyed one of the most decorated careers in the history of the basketball, both professionally and internationally.

The crafty lefty from Argentina averaged 8.9 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game in 20 minutes of action per night last season for the Spurs.

Ginobili was a linchpin on Spurs championship teams in 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2014 alongside Tim Duncan and Tony Parker. He shined even brighter for the Argentinian national basketball team, leading his country's "Golden Generation" to a remarkable run of success in global competition, headlined by a gold medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, where Argentina became the first team ever to beat a US side staffed by NBA players.
