I asked Bryce Cotton if he's comfortable shooting from the NBA 3-point line and he told me it wasn't a problem.
Spurs: Joseph, Green, Anderson, Duncan, Bonner. Heat: Cole, Chalmers, Haslem, Granger, Williams. Just like in the Finals.
The Longhorns have run 11 plays. They've either scored or picked up a first down on 8 of them.
Marco Belinelli's still into the whole tuck your warm-up pant legs into your socks thing.
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.
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.
Steve Edmond isn't starting on defense, but he was on the kickoff team.
Texas honors Matthew McConaughey and astronaut Karen Nyberg as distinguished alumni. Now they're arguing about who got higher.
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.
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.
Former 2007 NBA Spurs champion Fabricio Oberto in the building tonight for Spurs - Heat preseason game.
Pop opener on Sarver: "Most wise individuals would check facts before they made statements. Unless you're interested in putting on a show."
Pop also said Duncan & Manu are both two of the oldest players in the league, considering they were overseas for 13 days.
Pop basically said facts need to be checked before making public statements: Kawhi, Mills, Tiago were all hurt he said.
That qualifies as a mic drop in Pop-speak.
"...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."
Tony Parker will be out tonight for rest purposes. Cory Joseph will start at PG.
"...Patty Mills had a shoulder operation. Tiago has been out the whole preseason. Kawhi was out and is still out. The other two..."
Pop on Sarver apology: "I'm just surprised he didn't do it in a chicken suit."
Pop with a fairly emphatic rebuttal to Suns owner Robert Sarver: "The silliness begins. We had five guys we didn't send..." cont
Mack Brown lost 63-14 in Year 3. Kept stockpiling talent, though. Eventually got so much he couldn't lose.
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."
Tony Parker (rest) will sit tonight, joining Splitter (calf) and Leonard (goop eye).
Per Pop, Tony Parker will be out vs. Heat. Cory Joseph to start, same Kyle Anderson will start.
Pin the Spurs gave Pete Anton, who is in his 42nd year with the franchise. http://t.co/55TxpuicCi
No Wade or Bosh tonight for Miami. Hope Peter Holt takes the courtside mic at the AT&T Center and apologizes.
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.
Great moments in hip-hop history: A Tribe Called Quest's ode to pagers on 1991s "The Low End Theory."
Danielson just explained the best point I've ever heard a commentator make regarding the targeting rule. It's working.
Gotta love Uncle Verne: "Oh, wow! Oh, wow, again!"
Baylor-OU was supposed to be the toughest part of Texas' schedule. Both just got beat by teams UT still has to play.
Does Phil Bennett ever not look exasperated?
Baylor out there drawing flags like Russell Maryland-era Miami.
If you don't like watching a pop pass or saying "pop pass" I don't understand you.
Man, does Trevor Knight miss Nick Saban or what?
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.
Today was first Danny Green had heard of Robert Sarver's apology: "We probably should have been the ones apologizing, the way we played."
Popovich is, lol, Bastard Harbor Mastah
Manu Ginobili's Wu-Tang name is Eight-Legged DJ. Seems fitting in a roundabout way.
Rather, 55 3s.
It was about a 15-minute cab ride.
7) How all pork chops are almost certainly infested with maggots
6) Whether I was going to pay by cash or credit card
5) Robin Williams, who is also a Chinese rabbit
4) The old Richard Pryor show
3) How Kanye West once bought him Chinese food
2) How he once sat next to Barack Obama in a barber shop, and asked the President when his Tyra Banks episode was going to air
1) How he once met Michael Jordan in a strip club, and how they are both rabbits under the Chinese zodiac
Here is a comprehensive list of topics broached by my cab driver on the way to the airport this morning:
Expecting real basketball in a preseason game is like expecting M. Night Shyamalan to make a real movie. You'll be disappointed.
"Pop, can you talk about Robert Sarver's postgame comments?" http://t.co/0H51afXbqe
