The San Antonio Spurs have hoisted many awards over the last 15 years and now they are about to add another one.
According to Dave McMenamin of ESPN Los Angeles, the Spurs are holding a press conference to announce a winner of a major award on Tuesday.
The Spurs are going to have a press conference tomorrow to announce a major award. Got to be Manu as 6th Man or Pop as COY. My guess is Pop

McMenamin believes Spurs’ head coach Gregg Popovich is going to be named Coach of the Year on Tuesday, but as McMenamin points out, it could also be to name Manu Ginobili Sixth Man of the Year. Both are in contention for those awards and both are considered by many to be the favorites to win.
A year after losing to the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals in seven games, Popovich led the Spurs to a league-best 62-20 record.
Ginobili averaged 12.3 points, 4.3 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.0 steals per game this season.
