Parker might be unaware the Spurs traded away two of them, Gervin and Elliott. But neither happened in this era, and this is what Parker banks on. “Even though one day I’ll be without Timmy and Manu and Pop,” Parker said, “we’re still going to try to compete and bring in good players and try to be a franchise that wins games . . . I trust the Spurs. I trust R.C. (Buford) and Peter (Holt), that we will still have a competitive team.” San Antonio Express-News

Tony Parker continued his uncharacteristic hot streak from long range on Friday, drilling his only attempt to raise his season percentage to 66.6 (16 for 24). Not only does that lead the NBA, it’s the highest percentage in league history through 15 games, period. Unfortunately, Spurs games notes did not include the previous record holder, but chatter on press row was that it belonged to Steve Smith, followed by Luke Walton. (Yes, Luke Walton). Again, no details were available. San Antonio Express-News

As Ginobili and his Big Three teammates Tim Duncan and Tony Parker read the scripts they were told to memorize for Monday’s commercial filming session at the team’s practice complex, they discovered the spots have a new star. “(Kawhi Leonard) is the go-to guy for the punchlines now,” Ginobili said. “It’s a long day, especially after a tough practice like today. But first you have fun while shooting it, and then you see the end product, and you feel proud of it. “It’s a great job they do with the scripts, and they put us in a great spot to perform well and be funny. We all enjoy it.” San Antonio Express-News

Delayed by the eye infection of their latest leading man, Kawhi Leonard, the Spurs finally got around to shooting their latest batch of commercials for H-E-B following a long practice on Monday. The Spurs typically shoot the popular spots during the postseason. But with Leonard, whose incorporation last season mirrors his on-court ascent, sidelined for roughly three weeks with a nasty case of pink eye, production was pushed into the regular season.

Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo isn’t one to pour compliments on opposing players. He doesn’t tend to watch other teams play basketball either, unless it is to study film. However, San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker grabbed his attention with the way he moved without the ball in the NBA Finals, and now Rondo is incorporating some of Parker’s game into his already stacked arsenal of weapons. “He’s a guy that usually dominates the ball like myself, but in the Finals he got off the ball a lot and he never stopped moving,” Rondo said of Parker. “A guy at that age, not that he’s old, but I think he’s 31 (Ed. Note: Parker is 32), to be able to move with the young guys says a lot.” Basketball Insiders

“The starters are still going to play a lot of minutes,” Parker said. “Nothing will change. I think what (should be changed) is to play four preseason games instead of eight, and those two weeks you can help spread the season. That would be better. Because every arrives in shape at training camp. Everybody’s in shape. Everybody’s here since the beginning of September, even the guys playing overseas, we arrive in shape. So it’s better to play four preseason games, and then that two weeks use it to spread the season. You can still keep the week for the All-Stars so we can have some vacation too. I think that would be the solution. But 44 (minutes), no, that’s not going to change anything. Except for the coaches; there would be fewer minutes for the guys off the bench.” San Antonio Express-News
