Pop says Cory Joseph will indeed be Tony Parker's backup to start the season.
Manu's out working on his mid-range jumper with shooting coach Chip Engelland.
"I think it'll give us an early jump." - Danny Green on restarting camp with full returning squad. http://t.co/cTPsiEjFrw
And Kawhi hung out with his friends sometimes. A full offseason of fun for the Spurs.
Duncan capped his offseason with an appearance in a comic book. Bonner had a comic character created in his likeness. Spurs gonna Spurs.
Tommy Hearns episode of Martin untill i knockout hahahaha
South Park's take on the Redskins was brilliant. And I'm a Redskins fan.
Now I'm thinking about the phrase "double-tapered."
Been to KC 100 times and this is the first time I've seen people watch baseball. Guy here claims his brother was named after George Brett.
Of course, I am the resident beard king. But Ginobili is poised for serious threat to the throne. Might need some Lannisterian subterfuge.
Manu's beard is exceptionally thick and manly. I give him flawless victory over Pop, Duncan, rest of Spurs beardos. http://t.co/86jVYJBfvZ
Tomorrow we start another preseason. My 19th as a pro! Excited as always. Gotta get this young body moving...
Mañana arranca una nueva pretemporada (mi 19 como pro!). De a poquito iré integrándome al resto para llegar bien al debut.
Some great Pop quotes in there, some snarky and one big long insightful one on what it takes to win an NBA championship. Already in RS form.
Depending on what happens with Ray Allen, I believe Tim Duncan will be NBA's 3rd-oldest player on opening night (Steve Nash, Andre Miller)
Favorite Pop quote from media day: "We had a pretty good year, so I didn't see any reason to kick them out of town and make trades."
It's a weird set-up, though. No curtain. Looks like something you would have seen in Sochi.
So, Spurs staffer says new shower in media lounge is indeed for female employees. (Read: Becky Hammon). They think of everything!
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."
Manu Ginobili waxed poetic on the difference between starting a season as defending champs, and what happened to Spurs the season before:
Barring some sort of roster shenanigans to free space, wouldn't expect any the undrafted guys to survive past Oct. 27.
In addition to 15 guaranteed contracts, Spurs also bringing in undrafted rookies Bryce Cotton, JaMychal Green, Josh Davis and John Holland.
There are 19 players on Spurs' camp roster, one under max.
My bad -- overlooked John Holland. Wouldn't want to leave anybody out with all 15 roster spots filled.
Non-guaranteed invites for Spurs: Bryce Cotton, JaMychal Green, Josh Davis, John Holland
Official list of training camp invites who have zero chance of making Spurs: Bryce Cotton, Josh Davis, JaMychal Green.
The Spurs have released their 2014-15 training camp roster. http://t.co/KVJ3G8stLK
I guess I learned my lesson. Although I'm still a little surprised Luby's social media director isn't at dinner at this hour.
Can't decide if I want to work of just smell these new tennis balls sitting next to my computer for some reason.
Spurs officially announce re-signing of Aron Baynes. He will be the team's 15th guaranteed contract heading into training camp.
The Spurs have announced the team has officially re-signed Aron Baynes.
Missed Tim Duncan's parting words from media day. "All right, lots of fun." Sarcasm was pooling at his feet...
Checking in with Mills, says he's about half-way through 6 month recovery period. No solid return date, but shooting for January-ish.
Had to press "retweet" there. But with Baynes back, might as well be "repeat." I'll be here all season, folks!
Don't know what that skateboarder did to get some personality out of Kawhi, but this ESPN dude is crashing and burning...
Alas, no Danny or Marco. So concludes Spurs media day 2014. A good time was had by all. Material to come at Spurs Nation.
The Finals MVP award has swelled Kawhi Leonard's media day crowd. http://t.co/F4JMwfGGNj
Kawhi on his goals for fourth season: Just focus on the team, try to do what we did last year. That's my goal.
Kawhi on Pop's challenge for more consistency: I've been trying to do that since I got here. If I get 7 more minutes...that's a big diff.
Kawhi did something fun this summer! He hung out with his friends.
I guess we're supposed to get Leonard, Green and maybe Belinelli. Stay tuned...
STILL at media day. Waiting...waiting...waiting...
All of these people defending Luby's on my timeline. I had no idea I was followed by so many WWII veterans.
Ultimately Duncan said decision came down to one primary factor: How long am I going to be able to do this? Better play while you can.
Tim Duncan says he took decision to opt in or out right down to deadline this summer.
Duncan on repeating: Every game is a big game, and that wears on you. You have to be able to find a rhythm, a consistency, not let it drag.
First day wearing custom-made, doctor-prescribed orthotics. Might as well join AARP and go hang out at Luby's.
Duncan on coming back: There was some hesitation. But it came down to having a chance to (win the championship) again.
Duncan: 18 seasons...the actual number mind-blowing. But the start of another season, I'm ready to start up where you left.
Tony Parker has been excused from today's festivities, but is expected here in time for first practice tomorrow.
Pop joked Spurs staffers have a pool going to guess Diaw' s weight when he gets to Berlin. "It starts at 275," Pop said.
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."
Boris Diaw has been excused from the first part of camp. He'll meet the team in Berlin.
Manu on Hammon: It was a natural addition. A great basketball IQ. She's going to really help us.
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.
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.
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.
