Speaking with Mason today, he expanded on his continuing efforts to lure Duncan to the league and is hoping he’ll have a change of heart. “I did reach out to him early on and I didn’t hear back,” said Mason. “But I think ultimately, it’s going to be a sit down. I am sure Tim has seen the games now and if he hasn’t, I am still planning on coming down to San Antonio to grab some food with him and try to get him in our league.”
Storyline: Big3 Signings
The decision by Kevin to take the huge paycut of nearly $9.5 million. Sounded like that surprised Bob (Myers). How surprised were you and what were your thoughts on it? Steve Kerr: I knew he was going to give up enough money to allow us to keep Andre and Shaun. I didn’t know he was going to go beyond that. A remarkable gesture. I told him it reminded me a little bit of Tim Duncan and his time with the Spurs. He made max money and then at key times in his career he took a little less so they could add a player here and there. The way the league works, the way the CBA works, it really kind of is up to the star player at key times to take a little haircut here and there. Whether that’s fair or not, I don’t know. But I do know that Tim knew it was dramatically helping his own career and KD understands the same thing. In the end, he’s going to make a fortune in his career. Already has and he hopefully is going to win more titles and that’s what he cares about.
Who is on the ‘wish list’ for the BIG3’s Roger Mason, Jr. and the newly-launched 3-on-3 professional basketball league? The BIG3 Commissioner and President made it perfectly clear at Hashtag Sports this week. Those retired players on the list outside of the BIG3’s current eight rosters and reserve players include Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan and Tracy McGrady. A Twitter user asked if Mason had reached out to NBA greats Bryant or Jordan to compete in the BIG3, with the Commissioner saying ‘yes’ to both. However, Jordan is the owner of Charlotte Hornets and according to Mason, “Kobe is still fresh.”
Tim Duncan asked a federal court Tuesday to properly sentence his former financial adviser, who allegedly defrauded the San Antonio Spurs legend out of millions of dollars. “My biggest fear is that you will give him a sentence that will allow him to go out into the world and tell everyone as he has continued to do since his guilty plea that he did not do anything wrong and he proves by having very little to no jail time,” Duncan said of Charles Banks. “I respectfully ask you, do not do that. I promise you, that if he has any excuse to get back into this line of business, he will be out hustling and doing the same to others.”
