October 15, 2014 Updates

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

Coincidentally, I talked with a person close to him Friday who told me nothing has changed. The Wizards have contacted Allen's representatives at Tandem Sports and Entertainment several times, both reported here. The prospect of being a starter again with Beal's absence isn't likely to make Washington any more enticing for Allen. He'll soon be 40. Six teams have actually contacted his reps since he became an unrestricted free agent -- the Wizards, Cleveland Cavaliers, San Antonio Spurs, Chicago Bulls, Oklahoma City Thunder and .... the Milwaukee Bucks. Yes, the latter is not a mistake. CSNWashington.com

The Spurs rode Tim Duncan and Tony Parker to victory Saturday in the last of two dates on the NBA’s Global Games tour, outlasting Fenerbahce Ulker 96-90 at Istanbul’s Ulker Sports Arena. San Antonio Express-News

Frankly, when you think about it... Four NBA titles [is quite an achievement] Tony Parker: I can hardly believe it. Sometimes I must pinch myself because I feel like I'm living a dream. When I see the names I have surpassed on the various lists - best scorers, best passers...and all of the things I've accomplished with Tim, Manu and Popovich...It feels odd. Pounding the Rock
