GM Tim Connelly and his staff came on board in 2013, but there has to be something in the DNA of the Nuggets organization that has allowed the team to identify quality foreign players that other teams have missed. It’s even more impressive when you consider how interconnected the world of basketball has become since the turn of the century, when the Spurs drafted Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. “It’s hard to find a guy somewhere that nobody knows,” said Arturas Karnisovas, the Nuggets assistant GM. “These days, with social media, it’s hard to miss a guy.”

Ginobili, 39, has experienced a similar role change, but looks forward to seeing how Parker develops given the new responsibilities. “Yeah, it’s a transition that everyone goes through with years and with experience, and the addition of new, younger talent,” Ginobili said. “He’s understood it, and he’s done it really well. He, of course, at the beginning is going to have some ups and downs, and sometimes even some frustration. But I think he went past that, and we are looking forward to seeing him mature in that aspect and keep going but in different role; not in the one where we need 20 [points] and 10 [assists] from him.”

Spurs Manu Ginobili discussed the absences of longtime teammates Tim Duncan, Boris Diaw and Matt Bonner in an article for Argentinian newspaper La Nacion. “For me, this start of the season in San Antonio is special because it’s strange to come here and not have Tim (Duncan) around,” Ginobili wrote. “I feel we will miss him more as the season progresses, though. Now everything is new and we’re focused on playing well. Anyway, making it to the locker room and seeing another person in his place is, without a doubt, odd. It’s been 15 years together; his presence brought a lot of different things. But I insist it’s going to be felt more during the course of the season.
“If I were in the fourth-most-sacred Muslim spot in the world, and it was in the city of Harar, what country would I be in?” Popovich said. Ginobili knew it was Ethiopia. Popovich wasn’t surprised. Ginobili knows the answer to most of Popovich’s questions—and soon there may be data supporting his dominance. “I’m going to keep a ledger,” Popovich said, “and I’ll see who answered the most.”
