As Ginobili and his Big Three teammates Tim Duncan and Tony Parker read the scripts they were told to memorize for Monday’s commercial filming session at the team’s practice complex, they discovered the spots have a new star. “(Kawhi Leonard) is the go-to guy for the punchlines now,” Ginobili said. “It’s a long day, especially after a tough practice like today. But first you have fun while shooting it, and then you see the end product, and you feel proud of it. “It’s a great job they do with the scripts, and they put us in a great spot to perform well and be funny. We all enjoy it.” San Antonio Express-News

Delayed by the eye infection of their latest leading man, Kawhi Leonard, the Spurs finally got around to shooting their latest batch of commercials for H-E-B following a long practice on Monday. The Spurs typically shoot the popular spots during the postseason. But with Leonard, whose incorporation last season mirrors his on-court ascent, sidelined for roughly three weeks with a nasty case of pink eye, production was pushed into the regular season.

After 16 years in the pros, first with the New York Liberty, then the San Antonio Stars, Hammon's bona fides are well established. "She impressed me," Spurs guard Manu Ginobili said. "Because of her size. She wasn't the fastest. You could tell she could find a way to become important. Even if she wasn't shooting great one day, but she was smart, one step ahead. The type of player that usually becomes coaches." Bleacher Report

Manu Ginobili: You've probably seen a photo of Lady Gaga in these past days. What happened was that when the game ended we found out she was on the arena because she was scheduled to sing there the following day. We learned that she was a Spurs fan and that she wanted to meet us -me in particular - because I was one of her favorite players or something. I was like "are you sure she means me?" Her dressing room was 50 feet away from ours. So I went over there, said hey and we talked for a little while. We took a picture and she said she had watched us play and that I was one of her favorite players. I asked her if she was sure she meant me, that I was number 20. And she told me that she did in fact mean me. So I thanked her for the compliment and left. Pounding the Rock

Veteran guard Manu Ginobili, the Spurs' most active user of social media, has his own rules about posting on sites such as Instagram and Twitter. “It's a very sensitive topic because it's dangerous,” Ginobili said. “You have a phone, and you go through different moods, and different things can happen. I probably tweet one out of 10, I think. If I am in doubt that it's not going to be funny, or who cares, boom, I'm out. “Sometimes you are tempted, and you're bored in your room, and you want to do something, and things happen. You have to be very sensitive, very cautious because a lot of people follow us. Even if they don't, with retweets, everyone ends up knowing. “When you are a sort of (a) public figure, you can get into trouble easily. So before writing anything, it's a smart thing to do to just show somebody else.” San Antonio Express-News
