Take this for whatever it is worth, but Ginobili knew all four camp invites by first name.

Dan McCarney

Ginobili: "After 12 years being coached by him, you kind of know what gets him very mad. I'm very experienced with that."

Dan McCarney

Manu said he's trying to give the camp fodder advice on how not to piss Pop off -- no dumb fouls (ahem), running back in transition D.

Dan McCarney

Manu also said he's seen Diaw walk his dogs with the Segway: "I know. I know. It's so Bobo. It doesn't surprise me a lick."

Dan McCarney

Manu on Diaw's vacation photos: "Please don't make me comment, especially after a practice like today."

Dan McCarney

Asked if Spurs have rookie rituals, Ginobili said they only have to bring donuts. "And I haven't had a donut for 7 years, so I don't care."

Julian Mozo

#LNB Hace 19 años, en su debut en el Poli con Andino, Manu lograba su primer impacto: 9 ptos con 3-4 triples. "El primer tiro me relajó".

Julian Mozo

#LNB Hace 19 años, también en el Poli, el Huevo Sanchez le decía "entrá Sepo" cuando le pedía a Manu que debutara en la #LNB ante Peñarol.

I'd be remiss to forget mentioning Pop and Manu growing beards and Boris, presumably, eating a lot. #SpursFunOffseasonFacts

Dan McCarney

Of course, I am the resident beard king. But Ginobili is poised for serious threat to the throne. Might need some Lannisterian subterfuge.

Dan McCarney

Manu's beard is exceptionally thick and manly. I give him flawless victory over Pop, Duncan, rest of Spurs beardos. http://t.co/86jVYJBfvZ

Manu: "Of course you are not as hurt. Usually a hurt animal is more dangerous. We're going 2 have to work mentally to have the same desire."

Jeff McDonald

Manu Ginobili waxed poetic on the difference between starting a season as defending champs, and what happened to Spurs the season before:

Dan McCarney

Ginobili understood World Cup ban, but still hurt blog.mysanantonio.com/spursnation/20…

Emiliano Carchia

Ginobili on World Cup: I understood the Spurs but I did not like it sportando.com/en/usa/nba/135…

Royce Young

Spurs' Manu Ginobili cleared, but 'work in progress' cbsprt.co/ZglLzU

Julian Mozo

#NBA "Aún estoy enojado". Manu no ocultó su bronca en el Media Day. Y habló sobre el progreso de la lesión. ole.com.ar/nba/Manu-Diola…

Dan McCarney

Takeaway from Manu, made absolutely no bones about still being ticked at Pop, Spurs for barring World Cup. "I was hurt, and I'm still hurt."

Fernando Martin

Manu sobre Becky Hammon: "Es una incorporación lógica porque la temporada pasada trabajó mucho con nosotros. Nos ayudará"

Dan McCarney

Manu on Hammon: It was a natural addition. A great basketball IQ. She's going to really help us.

Yannis Koutroupis

Ginobili: I'm cleared to do everything, just not as long as my teammates. I'm behind conditioning wise.

Yannis Koutroupis

Ginobili: I think Becky was a natural addition. She worked with us all year long. We always got to talk to her. She has a high basketball IQ

Yannis Koutroupis

Ginobili: I played with Kyle Anderson two days. What I saw is he really takes advantage of his size and has a high basketball IQ.

Julian Mozo

#NBA Manu habla de Ettore Messina. "Es grandioso para mí. Fue un factor clave por ser quien soy hoy. Nos juntamos luego de 12 años", admite.

Dan McCarney

Manu: Of course we are not hurt, and a hurt animal is more dangerous. We will have to maintain our motivation. We have a great opportunity.

Yannis Koutroupis

Ginobili: were not as hurt as we were last year and usually when you're hurt you're more dangerous. We have to work on our mentality.

Dan McCarney

Ginobili on Messina: A great thing for me. He was a key factor in what I am today. To reunite 12 years later in this environment is great.

Yannis Koutroupis

Ginobili: Messina has the experience, potential and knowledge to be a head coach some day.

Julian Mozo

#NBA Manu no oculta su enojo x la maniobra de SA Spurs. "Hablamos, sí. Estaba enojado, todavía lo estoy, pero entiendo por qué lo hicieron".

Yannis Koutroupis

Ginobili: it's great to have Messina here. I have a ton of respect for him. He was a key factor in my development.

Dan McCarney

Ginobili on World Cup: We had a talk (to clear the air with Buford, Pop.) I was hurt. I understand why they did it. But I didn't like it.

Yannis Koutroupis

Ginobili: Before the playoffs I knew something was wrong.

Yannis Koutroupis

Ginobili: We had a talk, I'm still hurt (by not being allowed to play in the world cup). Bottom line, I was not ready.
