I asked Bryce Cotton if he's comfortable shooting from the NBA 3-point line and he told me it wasn't a problem.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs: Joseph, Green, Anderson, Duncan, Bonner. Heat: Cole, Chalmers, Haslem, Granger, Williams. Just like in the Finals.

Mike Finger

The Longhorns have run 11 plays. They've either scored or picked up a first down on 8 of them.

Paul Garcia

Marco Belinelli's still into the whole tuck your warm-up pant legs into your socks thing.

Dan McCarney

Physician friend of mine says eye infections don't usually take more than 3-5 days to clear up. So Kawhi's lasting this long is...something.

Mike Finger

On kickoff team instead of Edmond. Both wear 33. RT @drslowens: that was Foreman

Paul Garcia

Caught up w/ Josh Davis: spoke of adjusting to NBA level & what Coach Fisher used to say about Kawhi Leonard. Live Sunday on @projectspurs

Mike Finger

Tyrone Swoopes completes his first TD pass of the year to a WR other than John Harris. Marcus Johnson goes 28 yards to put UT up 7-0.

Mike Finger

Steve Edmond isn't starting on defense, but he was on the kickoff team.

Mike Finger

Texas honors Matthew McConaughey and astronaut Karen Nyberg as distinguished alumni. Now they're arguing about who got higher.

Mike Finger

I bet if you head over to DKR in the next few minutes they might be able to find a spot for you.

Here's word-for-word Pop quote, since people seem to enjoy it: “The only thing that surprises me is that he didn’t say it in a chicken suit.

What a difference a year makes. A grand total of three reporters in the Heat locker room pregame. Down from roughly 300.

Jeff McDonald

It's not the Finals, and LeBron is gone, sign 101: Three reporters in the Heat locker room when it opened. Two were from the E-N.

Jeff McDonald

If Leonard is going to miss 10 more days, as Pop suggests, wouldn't that put season opener in doubt, too? blog.mysanantonio.com/spursnation/20…

Jeff McDonald

To be somewhat fair, after Thursday's Sarver attempted to backtrack *a little* in postgame interview with @Paul Coro

Dan McCarney

Pop opener on Sarver: "Most wise individuals would check facts before they made statements. Unless you're interested in putting on a show."

Paul Garcia

Pop also said Duncan & Manu are both two of the oldest players in the league, considering they were overseas for 13 days.

Jeff McDonald

Pop also confirms what @Mike Monroe reported earlier: Kawhi Leonard likely to miss rest of preseason with eye infection.

Paul Garcia

Pop basically said facts need to be checked before making public statements: Kawhi, Mills, Tiago were all hurt he said.

Dan McCarney

That qualifies as a mic drop in Pop-speak.

Dan McCarney

"...Duncan/Ginobili, are 2 of the oldest guys in the league. The only thing that surprises me is that he didn't say it in a chicken suit."

Paul Garcia

Yup, Pop said it -> RT @Jeff McDonald: Pop on Sarver apology: "I'm just surprised he didn't do it in a chicken suit."

Jeff McDonald

Tony Parker will be out tonight for rest purposes. Cory Joseph will start at PG.

Dan McCarney

"...Patty Mills had a shoulder operation. Tiago has been out the whole preseason. Kawhi was out and is still out. The other two..."

Jeff McDonald

Pop on Sarver apology: "I'm just surprised he didn't do it in a chicken suit."

Dan McCarney

Pop with a fairly emphatic rebuttal to Suns owner Robert Sarver: "The silliness begins. We had five guys we didn't send..." cont

Mike Finger

Mack Brown lost 63-14 in Year 3. Kept stockpiling talent, though. Eventually got so much he couldn't lose.

Paul Garcia

Pop on Kyle Anderson: "Kyle's a quick learner. He'll start tonight at the three. He's done a good job of trying to jump on board."

Dan McCarney

Tony Parker (rest) will sit tonight, joining Splitter (calf) and Leonard (goop eye).

Paul Garcia

Per Pop, Tony Parker will be out vs. Heat. Cory Joseph to start, same Kyle Anderson will start.

Paul Garcia

Not tonight again, you'll have to find an online feed RT @sierran52: @Paul Garcia @D_Hyrum_Vaughn are they on TV?

No Wade or Bosh tonight for Miami. Hope Peter Holt takes the courtside mic at the AT&T Center and apologizes.

Jeff McDonald

Splitter and Leonard were both on the floor at the end of shootaround today, so I'd wager they're getting close(r). Will ask Pop tonight.

Mike Finger

Depends. Is the neutral field in Abu Dhabi? RT @DanWolken: If Texas and Texas A&M played today on a neutral field, who would be favored?

Baylor-OU was supposed to be the toughest part of Texas' schedule. Both just got beat by teams UT still has to play.

If you don't like watching a pop pass or saying "pop pass" I don't understand you.

Hahahaha just gamed @MRDavidCabrera with Rudy Gay in 2k he is so sick lol first GW of the year lol

Boris Diaw

Fans, anyone interested in coming to the game tonight? 3 tickets to whomever shares their best memory from a Spurs-Heat game. #gospursgo

Mike Finger

Not sure a Deion Sanders-Richard Sherman double-team could on a play like that. RT @Jake_Trotter: OU still can’t cover Tyler Lockett.

Mike Finger

Man, does Trevor Knight miss Nick Saban or what?

Mike Finger

Summary: Knight got hurt and Kliff is a "scoundrel." RT @max_olson: Just pulling into FW and see Cody Thomas is playing for OU. Wut?

Mike Finger

After all these years I still do a double-take every time I see Bobby Jack Wright in a coaches' box. 66-3 was a long time ago.
