After 16 seasons, four NBA rings, and countless Euro steps with the San Antonio SpursManu Ginobili has finally called it quits.

Arguably the greatest second-round pick of all time at No. 57th and a member of the Spurs' "Big Three" alongside Tim Duncan and Tony Parker, the 41-year-old shooting guard took to Twitter to make the move official:

Ginobili, who is also a two-time All-Star and one-time Sixth Man of the Year, finishes as San Antonio's all-time leader in three-pointers made (1,495) and steals (1,392), averaging 13.3 points, 3.8 assists, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.3 steals in 25.4 minutes. He is the only player other than Bill Bradley to win a EuroLeague championship, an NBA title, and an Olympic gold medal.

Regarded as one of, if not the best player ever to come off the bench, Ginobili retires as the league's all-time leader in playoff points, assists, rebounds, steals, field goals, three-pointers, and free throws made among reserves. After playing professionaly in Argentina and Italy, he became one of the seven players in NBA history to spend his entire career (at least 16 seasons) with one team, joining the likes of Dirk Nowitzki and Kobe Bryant.
