What they say is true. The Spurs have an ego you can’t see with an electron microscope. A favorite story is the time Cory Joseph, struggling with his game, called his coach and asked, “Pop, can I go back to the D-League?” I wrote: “There was, Joseph recalls, two or three seconds of silence. It isn’t often a first-round NBA pick asks to be reassigned to the D-League. It may be unprecedented for a first-rounder to make the request after four previous D-League stops in the same season.” Therein lies a secret to this team. NBA.com

With the deadline for members of the 2011 draft class to reach a contract extension having come and gone Friday, Joseph — the Spurs’ 23-year-old backup point guard — is set to become a restricted free agent in July. He is neither surprised by this development, nor is he daunted by it. “It’s definitely an opportunity for me,” Joseph said. “I can control my destiny, so that’s the good thing about it.” San Antonio Express-News

From the earliest days of the fabled Zarko Paspalj era in the late 1980s, the Spurs have been at the forefront of international scouting. No surprise, then, that they once again have the most players born outside the continental United States, breaking their own NBA record with 10: Tim Duncan (U.S. Virgin Islands), Manu Ginobili (Argentina), Tony Parker (France, by way of Belgium), Tiago Splitter (Brazil), Boris Diaw (France), Marco Belinelli (Italy), Nando De Colo (France), Patty Mills (Australia), Cory Joseph (Canada), Aron Baynes (Australia, by way of New Zealand).

If the Spurs opt to extend Joseph's rookie-scale deal, the 29th pick will receive a raise of $280,502, to $1.36 million. Though he doesn't consider the 2013-14 season as “make or break,” Joseph approaches it with a degree of urgency. “They haven't told me if a fourth year is for sure yet, so obviously you've got to look at it as your last season right now,” Joseph said Monday after a long session at the team's practice facility. “I'm going to be playing hard and playing confident and hopefully make a jump in the right direction.” San Antonio Express-News
