Spurs' Manu Ginobili is one of the Basketball Hall of Fame finalists

He will be inducted into the Naismith Memorial basketball Hall of Fame this year.

Ginobili was among 11 finalists revealed at Friday's press conference as part of All-Star Weekend events.

Along with George Karl, the NBA coach, and Swin Cash and Lindsay Whalen, former All-Star players Michael Cooper and Tim Hardaway will be voted upon for possible induction.

Bob Huggins, West Virginia's coach, is also up for induction. He will be joined by Marianne Staley, Old Dominion and WNBA coaches Marianne Staley and Leta Andrews (high school coach in Texas), long-time NBA referee Hugh Evans.

A panel will vote on the finalists to decide this year's class.

After the 2017-18 season, Ginobili, 44 years old, retired from the league. The Argentine forward, along with Tony Parker, a fellow Hall of Fame guard, was a key player in the Spurs' teams that won the title in 2003, 2005 and 2006.

He was also instrumental in the 2004 Olympic gold medal win for Argentina.

The Hall of Fame announced that Walt Frazier, writer Mechelle Vöpel, and Dick Ebersol, NBC executive, were the recipients of the 2022 Curt Gowdy media award.

At the men's Final Four in New Orleans on April 2, 2022, the Hall of Fame's 2022 class will be announced. The ceremony of induction is scheduled for September 10, 2010 in Springfield, Massachusetts.
