San Antonio Spurs Rumors
When he does arrive in San Antonio, Parker will join a freshly revamped roster that not only features most of the mainstays, notably long-time teammates Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili, but also newcomers LaMarcus Aldridge and David West. And given the age of the first two, this could very well be the last opportunity the Spurs have to pursue a championship as currently constructed. “Super excited, super excited,” Parker told France 24 English. “That’s why I can’t wait to start with the national team and make sure we take care of business, and then go to the Spurs and try to go back at it and try to get another ring. It’s been an unbelievable summer for us. LaMarcus is going to help us a lot. I’m so happy that Manu and Timmy are back. And so we’re going for a last try, a last crack at it to try to win it all.”
Spurs Jesus (real name: Cordero Maldonado, according to the San Antonio Express-News) chased, tackled and apprehended an evil-doer who tried to break into his home on Monday afternoon, according to multiple reports. Spurs Jesus — so dubbed for dressing as Jesus at San Antonio Spurs home games — recounted the episode himself on his Facebook page. It all started when he was washing his garb, as any dedicated Jesus does.
Boban Marjanovic may miss Eurobasket with Serbian National Team. Over the last few days there was a report that the giant played the finals of the Serbian League with a fractured foot.

So, when Popovich brought Hammon in during her final season as a WNBA player, in 2013, as she rehabbed a knee injury, she talked about basketball with Popovich and President of Sports Franchises and General Manager R.C. Buford. And her knowledge about the game was clear. But that doesn’t mean she was a yes woman. “If she literally spoke the exact language, Pop probably wouldn’t have brought her in,” Buford said by phone Saturday. “She had her own ideas. She knew how to handle herself, and as Pop said, she knew when to speak and when to shut up. You have to have both to be successful.”
