Ginobili moments before testing his Swiffer uniform.
SAN ANTONIO, TX -
The San Antonio Spurs teamed with Procter & Gamble to create a special Swiffer jersey for Manu Ginobili, the Argentine guard with a penchant for being on the floor.
P&G approached Spurs brass with the idea, pitching it as a "lay-up proposal," since Ginobili can be seen sliding on the hardwood 75 percent of games.
"Now that Manu has this special uniform, we can lay off 50 percent of our cleaning crew, positively affecting our bottom line," Spurs President and CEO John Diller said.
Upon hearing the news, Ginobili crumpled up his old jersey, threw out his elbow and banked it into the team’s laundry basket.
