HoopsHype Danny Green rumors


May 20, 2014 Updates

Duncan finished with 27 points on 11-for-19 shooting, with 21 of his points coming in the first half. The Spurs' backcourt of Tony Parker, Danny Green and sixth man Manu Ginobili that no longer had to fear Ibaka's long arms contesting on the perimeter shot 19-for-31 for 48 points. After shooting 44.2% against the Thunder in four regular season losses, the Spurs shot 57.5% from the field in all. "We always want to try to penetrate," Parker said. "We always want our ball movement, that's how we play — kick and pitch and stuff like that. You know, obviously it's a little bit better with (Ibaka) not being in the paint, but we're still going to try to penetrate and make stuff happen." USA Today Sports

Spurs shooting guard Danny Green, a snake aficionado who owns a pair of boa constrictors, said several Blazers teased him about planting the creature in their locker room. “They came up to me when I was out there (warming up), ‘Why you put snakes in our locker room?’ Green said. “It’s believable, in Texas. They’re in random places everywhere.” San Antonio Express-News

Though they won’t play a minute, injured Spurs starters Tiago Splitter, Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard are with the team on the three-game road trip that is to begin Friday night against the Hawks in Atlanta because coach Gregg Popovich wants to use the trip — and the upcoming rodeo road trip — to build team chemistry. “It’s both to get therapy — I want Will (head athletic trainer Will Sevening) to be there for their therapy and other stuff — and sure, they could have done that back in San Antonio with physical theapists — but it’s also good for the chemistry for them to be with us on these road trips.” Popovich also has used the rodeo trip to build what he calls a “bunker mentality” among his players, coaches and staff so the injured players will make that long sojourn, as well.

The relentless Spurs are still coming, alright, and it's not just the Heat that they have in their sights. Their 7-1 record thus far has come in buzzsaw fashion, with San Antonio slicing through the likes of Memphis, the Lakers, Denver, Phoenix, Golden State, New York and Philadelphia while losing only a road game at Portland. And as Green made clear, their strong start has come amid this cloud of disappointment that never truly went away. "It's not easy, man," he told USA TODAY Sports. "I feel like every day, every game that we have now, you'd think (those Finals memories) would go away. But it's always lingering there. Even with the little mistakes, the subtle mistakes here and there, you (think) back to the mistakes that we made in June…We feel like we're preparing for that now, which is good, and I think it's going to help us."

"You have everybody back, so I figured (that) not much would change (about his role)," Green said. "But some things have changed. Pop's Pop. He does things the way he does them, and you can't predict anything, so you have to roll with however it is he wants things done. You've got to adjust. "He's obviously trying to make me better than what I am. He's picking things here and there for me to work on, wanting me to work on them and get them done faster, better, to have better habits, which is why my leash is not as long as you'd expect it to be. But it's part of the game, part of the business. And if you want to be successful here, you've got to roll with it." USA Today Sports

Having added a logo-only uniform last season, the Spurs are expanding their wardrobe even further this season with a special camouflage alternate to honor San Antonio’s strong military roots. Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard shot pictures behind closed doors following Monday’s practice. Green said he’d already seen the jerseys, giving them an endorsement. “It’s a fatigue-type style,” he said. “They’re pretty nice.” No immediate word on when or how often the Spurs will wear the jerseys, images of which were not yet publicly available. The logo jerseys had originally been intended for select dates last season before serving as the team’s de facto home uniforms for long stretches. Camo alternates aren’t uncommon in pro sports. Toronto became the first NBA to wear them, in 2011-12. Now, fittingly, the Spurs will join them. San Antonio Express-News
