Spur’s Manu Ginóbili doubting himself

Manu Ginobili has been missing something this season - confidence (Getty Images).Manu Ginóbili was supposed to come into the 2009-10 NBA season with a renewed vigor for the game after spending the entire summer away from basketball.

Instead, the 6-6 superstar shooting guard for the San Antonio Spurs is lacking confidence and not playing his game.

“I’m lacking a lot of stuff, mainly confidence,” he said. “I’m still hesitating, doing things I don’t usually do — passing up shots or not attacking the rim as hard. Maybe I’m thinking too hard, or worried because I already missed six games. I really don’t know.”

The 32-year old Ginóbili is averaging just 12.7 points on 36.8% from the field as the Spurs have stumbled out of the gate to a 9-9 record.

Ginóbili’s points average is at the lowest since his second year in the league six years ago, and his field goal percentage is far and away a career-low.

The positive is that the problem is all mental, as Manu feels healthy and there is no pain thus far this season.

“I felt great before the game,” Ginobili said after Saturday’s 106-99 loss to the Denver Nuggets. “The good thing is I’m feeling really good after the game, too.

As long as he continues to remain healthy, we all know Manu will get eventually get it together this season, and with that the Spurs will improve.
