Two hands, Darren. Two hands.
big 'ol onions
Belinelli did have amusing Game 6 quote. Didn't play, obviously, but said it was so tough to watch even he got upset during film in camp.
The crazy thing is Edmond was hurt and didn't even play against Baylor last year. He said he watched with David Ash at Jordan Hicks' house.
Almost wish they would just abolish the block/charge rule. Block a shot.
He might be the last push he needs to be able to shoot death rays out of his eyes.
If Pop was testy today, can't wait to see him after answering Game 6 questions for four rounds. (If they get that far, of course.)
Edmond: "Batlor gets a win and act like they haven't won before. They won it, so what? They still suck to me."
Edmond: "Y'all think it's funny but I'm serious. They have some good players. ... But I don't understand how we lost to Baylor."
Texas LB Steve Edmond, unprovoked, said he's still bitter Texas lost to Baylor: "I really don't like Baylor. I think they're trash."
Strong has been given opportunity after opportunity to say he needs better talent and has never bit once. Compliments Mack every time.
Texas played nothing but 4-3 defense today but Strong insists UT will be multiple. "We didn't want to show what we have."
Strong on Texas' QB situation: "We don't need a great player. We just need someone to take control of it."
Swoopes, who started terribly, hits Shipley with one of the best deep balls a Texas QB has thrown in years. 44-yard TD.
People in Nebraska and Louisville said Shawn Watson was boring but he just went for it on fourth and goal so take that.
Granted, the passing game would look much better with a healthy Ash. But UT's starting offense can't run on its backup defense.
Defensive line might be the only answer I'd accept.
What is Texas' team strength?
Finally, some success for UT starters. Shiro Davis pressures Onyegbule into bad throw that Mykkele Thompson picks and returns for a TD.
It's absurd to make any meaningful judgments based on a spring game, but the first 8 minutes of this have been atrocious.
The spring game just hasn't been the same since Dunkin' Donuts stopped sponsoring it.
By the looks of that Tyrone Swoopes pick, playing time is available, Max Wittek. Question is, do you want it?
Texas' starting defense just gave up a 70-yard touchdown drive to a unit led by a converted tight end. Rough.
So much for "good on good." Texas opens spring scrimmage with backup offense against starting defense.
Man, Charlie Strong really was serious about making changes. http://t.co/CmVTLuhQxf
Kind of did a poor job springing the Sager news on Popovich today at practice. Consensus was that he was genuinely taken aback.
God bless Craig Sager
Craig Sager statement III: "40 veins and 40 electrolytes. Too bad, I had some probing questions for Pop.”
Sager statement II: "A dramatic turn has matched me with acute myeloid leukemia. From the sidelines to being sidelined,"
Craig Sager Statement I: “My favorite time of year – city to city, round by round, 40 games in 40 nights."
There's more to Craig Sager statement on his battle with leukemia. It's a classic, so will put it all in couple of posts
Craig Sager, on missing NBA playoffs to battle acute myeloid leukemia; "Too bad, I had some probing questions for Pop."
Would love to know who he's subtweeting there.
Yes, the great James Worthy.
Kawhi Leonard might be a grizzled veteran in his third season, but his PS approach hasn't changed. "Try to go in and win 16 games."
That's a first: Laughter at Kawhi Leonard press availability. He said "indubitably," I guess.
Don't know much about gambling, but Spurs' 1/9 odds to beat Mavericks in 1st round seem pretty overwhelming.
Do have to give Isiah his propers, however grudgingly. About as fierce a competitor as there's ever been.
Some Hall of Fame mullets in this 30/30.
...they turned it into a marketing slogan: Bad Boy. Reap what you sow for a repugnant brand of basketball.
Really have a problem with Isiah Thomas complaining about labels put on his Pistons. Hell, they didn't just embrace it...
Texas' Shawn Watson on the play-calling plans for Saturday's spring game: "It'll be really vanilla." So y'all come on out.
Tim Duncan, budding All-Star/MVP, sitting on the rookie/free agent bus at training camp, ready to get a workout in.
Coaches came down to find him sitting on it, told him he could go back upstairs and get some sleep. This was like his 3rd or 4th season.
Still my favorite Duncan story...can't remember full details. But it was some sort of early bus at training camp for rookies/free agents.
They're threatening to close my basketball gym for a month due to excessive cursing and fighting. Knew we shouldn't have let Tarantino play.
Dug the Billy Ocean/Huey Lewis/Lover Boy rotation at Bombay last night. It was like being at the AT&T Center all over again.
Have to wish my man Kaleb Canales, Mavs assistant, good luck. We've both come a long way from games at Martin High School in Laredo.
Two betting sites, Bovada and MyTopSportsBooks, make the Heat 2/1 favorites. Spurs 3/1 in both cases.
Tim Duncan squeezes into the Top 15 on season jersey sales at No. 14. Spurs finish No. 9 among most popular team merchandise. Per NBA.
En route pour les playoffs et Dallas ! Are you ready ? Go Spurs Go !!!
DeJuan Blair vs. the Spurs is about as interesting as the Bran story line in Game of Thrones, except there's no option to fast forward.
Les insomniaques, je sais que vous n'êtes toujours pas fatigués alors rendez vous pour les playoffs et encore de courte nuit. Merci à vous !
Pop looks like a beleaguered single dad in that picture.
...Game 5, Wednesday April 30, TBD; Game 6, Friday April 2, TBD; Game 7, Sunday May 4, TBD.
Full 1st round sked for SA/Mavs: Game 1, noon Sunday; Game 2, 7 p.m. Wednesday; Game 3, 3:30 p.m. Saturday; Game 4, 8:30 p.m. Monday...
Latest edition of Opponents Praise Spurs, starring Swaggy P: They all buy into their system...from the last person on the bench to the 1st.
Leonard on 1st round opponent, as Memphis/Dallas hung in the balance: "Doesn't matter. Still have to win four games."
Pop took no questions tonight .... http://t.co/GcgIFrvUaz
Welcome to San Antonio for Easter, Mavericks.
Classic Pop. Missed it, but apparently walked out, said the Spurs had a great RS, now I'm going to watch Memphis/Dallas and left.
Pour some wine on the block for the weirdest stat in the NBA this season: The Spurs are now 33-1 when Tiago Splitter scores at least 7 pts.
