Manu Ginobili spent 16 seasons with the San Antonio Spurs.

He won four NBA titles, was named to two All-Star games, made two All-NBA teams, was an All-Rookie team member and won a Sixth Man of the Year award.

But his legacy in San Antonio will be remembered forever.

After tonight, no Spurs player will every don the number 20 again, as Ginobili's jersey was lifted into the rafters among other San Antonio greats.

First, he was announced for one last time as the crowd errupted at the sight of his appearance.

Next, former teammates said their piece about Manu's career.

And head coach Gregg Popovich took over the mic, too.

Finally, there was the well worth the wait tribute video.

Manu got a chance to say his thank you's to the fans, organization, teammates and coaches.

And last, but certainly not least, his jersey will be hung in the rafters forever.

The Spurs won tonight's contest against the Cleveland Cavaliers 116-110.

DeMar DeRozan's 25 points on 10-for-12 shooting from the field led the way, while Patty Mills' dagger late in the fourth quarter put the Cavaliers to rest.

The Spurs are now one win, or a Kings' loss from clinching the playoffs for the 22nd consecutive season.
