Who said San Antonio Spurs veteran Manu Ginobili was too old to dunk?

Because he’s not ... apparently.

I think we were all taken aback when the second-oldest player in the NBA took to the skies against the Houston Rockets during Tuesday night’s Game 5 matchup.

The play came in the second quarter against Houston, with the defense slow to catch up in secondary transition as Ginobili streaked down the lane.

Charles Barkley thinks the NBA playoffs aren’t exciting? Well just dial up a whole mess of Manu dunks, that will get your blood pumping.

That or when Ginobili blocks James Harden at the buzzer to save Game 5.
