Should the San Antonio Spurs return to the NBA’s mountaintop this season, maximizing the talents of new big man LaMarcus Aldridge and perhaps winning a sixth title since 1999, they may need to come up with an in-house award to honor the man who made it all possible. It’s not Gregg Popovich, or Tim Duncan, or any of the usual suspects from their storied group. It’s Ime Udoka, a 38-year-old Spurs assistant and former Spurs player who was the unsung hero in their pursuit of the former Portland Trail Blazers big man.

Udoka has the potential to be an NBA head coach, Forcier believes. “He has the ambition to do that and the qualifications, too,” Forcier says. “He has a great demeanor, a great way of interacting with players that will be effective when he gets his opportunity.” Popovich says Forcier has been offered prominent roles on other staffs. “He’s had one to three offers each of the last two years to be on somebody’s bench and be a No. 2 or 3 assistant, and he’s opted not to do it,” Popovich says. “He loves San Antonio.”
