Veteran guard Manu Ginobili, the Spurs' most active user of social media, has his own rules about posting on sites such as Instagram and Twitter. “It's a very sensitive topic because it's dangerous,” Ginobili said. “You have a phone, and you go through different moods, and different things can happen. I probably tweet one out of 10, I think. If I am in doubt that it's not going to be funny, or who cares, boom, I'm out. “Sometimes you are tempted, and you're bored in your room, and you want to do something, and things happen. You have to be very sensitive, very cautious because a lot of people follow us. Even if they don't, with retweets, everyone ends up knowing. “When you are a sort of (a) public figure, you can get into trouble easily. So before writing anything, it's a smart thing to do to just show somebody else.” San Antonio Express-News

Coach Gregg Popovich had joked at media day about starting a betting pool on how much Diaw would weigh upon rejoining the Spurs prior to their recent exhibition games in Berlin and Istanbul. That prompted Diaw to share the aforementioned photo, earning minor buzz on social media. “He commented on what I was doing in France while they were practicing here,” Diaw said. “I was just chilling. It wasn’t far from the truth. … I was expecting it, because they were coming back to work and I was still on vacation.” San Antonio Express-News

Diaw reintegrated himself smoothly, however. The Frenchman averaged 6.5 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists in the two games, providing the same Swiss-army-knife versatility that was such a crucial asset during the Spurs’ championship run. Best of all, any concerns about Diaw ballooning over the offseason proved to be unfounded. “Boris looked fine and he’s ready to go,” Popovich said. “He’s always played with a little more weight, and he knows how to use it. He’s fine.” San Antonio Express-News
