If that's the case then I think he could.
But the title of the thread was "is belinelli the new ginobili". If that's the question, the answer is a resounding no!
What if Marco becomes a candidate for 6th Man of the Year?
Is that good enough?
I get that Marco will likely never be better than the best of Manu. But 2005 was a LONG time ago. And if Marco can fulfill the role Manu had when he was moved to the bench, then I'm good.
