That makes no sense. So Horry, in deference to Ginobili, infers that if Manu had done what he was supposed to do (i.e. stay healthy) we (the Spurs) would've beat the Lakers because Manu would've been able to hold Kobe.

Simply not buying that argument.
In 2008 Ginobili averaged 19.5 points during the regular season. He scored in single digits 3 times because of the ankle injury. Again why would he bring up 2006 when he started the convo with "you only got yours because...."???
