The Spurs raising a championship banner will never get old. It's an incredible experience that not many fans can enjoy.

Quixem Ramirez

Botched that last tweet. I don’t know english.

Tim Duncan shooting 1-on-1 jumpers with Aron Baynes trying to block him in warm-ups. It's a new season

Yep, that's all of them. For now at least. http://t.co/IEwr3orfSA

Paul Garcia

This tho... RT @yowhatupT: When do the Kings get their Summer League rings?

Paul Garcia

5 banners... http://t.co/T7FTxl872l

Paul Garcia

There it is, five championship banners.

Dan McCarney

Parker: On behalf of the organization, thanks for your support. It's been an unbelievable year, and now we start another one.

Paul Garcia

Tony Parker addresses the AT&T Center. "That's awesome, that's the best."

Dan McCarney

Troll @Jeff McDonald As of 6:41 p.m. on 10/28/14, Austin Daye has more NBA championship rings than Stockton, Malone and Barkley combined.

Jeff McDonald

M-V-P chants for Kawhi Leonard.

Dan McCarney

Tim gets a huge ovation, but Manu's is even bigger. Will always have a unique place in this city.

Jeff McDonald

As of 6:41 p.m. on October 28, 2014, Austin Daye has more NBA championship rings than Stockton, Malone and Barkley combined.

Paul Garcia

And Tim Duncan officially has a ring for each one of his fingers on one of his hands.

Paul Garcia

JEFF AYRES. NBA CHAMPION.

Paul Garcia

Pop gets his ring, crowd goes nuts. He even threw in a little smile.

Dan McCarney

Commissioner Silver: Spurs represent the essence of team basketball and respect for the game.

Jeff McDonald

Adam Silver says the words "Coach Pop." Crowd erupts.

Dan McCarney

Will be disappointed if Samuel L. doesn't come rappelling out of the rafters in full Nick Fury gear.

Jeff McDonald

See, he's excited about it, too ----> @SamuelLJackson NARRATING SPURS CHAMPIONSHIP VIDEO!!!!

Dan McCarney

Spurs got mega fan Samuel L. Jackson to do their highlight video for ring night. F'ing A.

Jeff McDonald

If Sam Jackson describes the Spurs in the Finals as "mushroom cloud-laying mfers, mfer" ... I'm dead.

Jeff McDonald

Cool. Sam Jackson narrated season highlight video. Only guy who utters more f-bombs than Popovich.

Paul Garcia

Samuel L. Jackson is the guy leading video recap of championship.

Jeff McDonald

One minute until ring ceremony begins. Impromptu "Go Spurs Go" chant begins.

Paul Garcia

Spurs players and coaches just came to the court, embraced with cheers from the crowd.

Paul Garcia

Wow, I must be back in middle school. AT&T Center running promotion for Slipknot and Korn tour together.

Paul Garcia

Twitter goals this season: Increase retweet efficiency and work on Twitter conditioning.

Paul Garcia

Coach Carlisle on Kawhi Leonard: "He's developing into a great young player." Said Kawhi is learning to do it all on both sides of floor.

Jeff McDonald

Pop says Spurs will be "offensively challenged" to open season. Mavs a scoring juggernaut. Spurs missing two top defenders. Bad combo.

Dan McCarney

But not just false modesty with two starters and a key reserve out. Could be a long -- but still great -- night for Los Spurs.

Dan McCarney

Pop was legit surprised to hear Spurs are 4-0 on ring nights. Probably would have blown his mind to hear they're 16-1 in openers with TD.

Dan McCarney

Pop's game plan is set: "It's the first game of the season. You get your rings, you get beat by 30, you go get a glass of wine."

Paul Garcia

Kawhi Leonard just came in from shooting around on the court, he was wearing his new claw/Klaw shoes.

Jeff McDonald

Pop, on Duncan's vow to savor ring ceremony: "He's not going to be around for five more, so he wants to make sure he appreciates this."

Danny Green

Spurs v Mavs 8pm eastern...TNT tune in

Mike Monroe

Everyone who thought Matt Bonner and Marco Belinelli would start for #Spurs in ring game, stand up. Oh, sit down @Jeff McDonald

Jeff McDonald

Pop: "It's the first game of the season. You get your rings, you get beat by 30, you go get a glass of wine."

Jeff McDonald

Tiago Splitter, originally out with a calf strain, is now dealing with some sort of back ailment, Pop says. Leonard closer to returning.

Jeff McDonald

Kawhi Leonard has been cleared to start practicing and playing, per Pop, but he won't play tonight.

Dan McCarney

Pop reiterated last yr's championship being greatest experience of athletic career. "Although I did hit a shot one time to beat Gary East."

Jeff McDonald

Belinelli and Bonner will start tonight for Spurs. Can't believe I actually guessed that.

Paul Garcia

Starters for tonight's game on Spurs' side: Tony Parker, Danny Green, Marco Belinelli, Matt Bonner, Tim Duncan

Paul Garcia

Says Pop, Tiago has the calf injury, but for some reason he's getting word about a back injury. Said he's a little confused.

Mike Finger

So in sum: The NCAA already agreed to a $75M concussion settlement. This apparently is about football players wanting piece for themselves.

Paul Garcia

On Tiago Splitter, Pop: "He's just out until they tell us he's ready to play."

Paul Garcia

Pop says Kawhi Leonard has been cleared to participate in practices, just wasn't ready by tonight.

Mike Finger

That's one heck of a typo. Whittier really is represented by Dr. Evil, apparently.

Dan McCarney

The banner is ready to be unveiled. http://t.co/FmgRwz3wNw

Spurs starters: Parker, Green, Belinelli, Bonner, Duncan

Per Pop, Marco Belinelli, Matt Bonner will start in place of Kawhi and Splitter.

Paul Garcia

As @geoffsheen760 tweeted earlier, something behind the curtain... http://t.co/ntrz7pOrOE

Mike Finger

Whittier was Texas' first black football letterman. He hadn't been doing many interviews lately. Now we see a possible reason why.

Mike Finger

Uh, wow. RT @KEYESportsBob: Ex-UT player Julius Whittier has filed a $50 BILLION class-action lawsuit against NCAA. keyetv.com/news/features/…

FWIW, TNT is broadcasting the championship ring ceremony at 6:30 p.m.

Dan McCarney

Ring ceremony will be part of TNT's broadcast tonight.

Once more, with feeling: AT&T Center doors open -- 5 p.m.; Ring ceremony -- 6:30; Game tips -- 7:08 p.m.

Mike Monroe

Richard Jefferson, on #Spurs and rings: "None of those guys ever wore them, not to a dinner, not to an event. Those things are never seen."

Nice RT @yowhatupT: Kawhi Claw logo “@Nice Kicks: Air Jordan 6 "The Claw" PE for Kawhi Leonard goo.gl/0aKQ5Y

Paul Garcia

Per NBA, international player pool continues to grow; Spurs lead with most international players for 3rd season. http://t.co/bMgktkXSFJ

Jeff McDonald

"Last I checked" is a lie. I've never actually asked the NBA if bubble boys are legal. Maybe they are.

Jeff McDonald

Last I checked, the NBA still outlawed bubble boys from participating in a game. Which seems unnecessarily discriminatory if you ask me.

Jeff McDonald

Kawhi Leonard being cleared to be in the same gym with the team is an important first step in returning to the floor, I'd think.

Jeff McDonald

Danny Green with what amounts to a Kawhi Leonard health update: "He's cleared to be around us."

Mike Finger

Charlie Strong admits he's frustrated. But the Longhorns say, "Give the man some time." expressnews.com/sports/college…

Jeff McDonald

First name Green mentioned as a potential Dirk slower downer, obviously, was Boris Diaw.

Jeff McDonald

Asked Danny Green who guards Dirk with Tiago Splitter out tonight. Second name he mentioned was Matt Bonner, so there's that.

Jeff McDonald

It should be noted neither myself nor the TV guys own medical degrees, or else we wouldn't be myself or TV guys.

Jeff McDonald

Can't get close enough to Kawhi to really see his eyes, but those with zoom lenses (ie TV folks) say there's still detectable redness.

Dan McCarney

Such a great photo from last year's Finals. Everybody happy for Leonard as if they'd won the MVP themselves. http://t.co/dW3dOUR6jV

Jeff McDonald

Kawhi Leonard on the floor at end of practice, taking FTs with real, live teammates for 2nd straight day. Guess he's not contagious anymore.

Dan McCarney

You know you've made it when you get your own logo.

Jeff McDonald

Not shoe nerd. Like at all. But those Kawhi Leonard "kicks" (as I hear the kids are calling them here in 1993) are pretty sweet.
