RC Buford Rumors
Rivers’ losing his front office duties isn’t so much an indictment of his individual fitness for the duties, but the fact that it is suited for no one coach in this modern era. For everyone trying to replicate the San Antonio dynasty, understand this: The Spurs have the greatest coach (Gregg Popovich) and greatest executive (RC Buford) of a generation. As much as it’s the ultimate model, it’s the ultimate aberration too. Popovich defers to Buford’s expertise and judgment, in ways that Minnesota president and coach Tom Thibodeau will likely never do with a GM.
Jay Allen: RC Buford says Spurs still waiting to hear from Manu Ginobili about his future: “Hopefully he’ll come off the beach one day & let us know.”
Tom Orsborn: Buford when asked if Aldridge asked for trade: “We are happy with the group we have. If we can make it better, we will do it.” #Spurs
