But Popovich just ... wouldn't ... leave ... the Sagers ... alone. "He called me four or five times in the next month to check on me and my dad," said Junior, and remember, Pop and the Spurs were in the heat of the playoff run. Pop's timing was downright surreal, too. "He called the day of my sister Krista's graduation from the University of Georgia, because my dad couldn't make it," said Junior. "And this was before a game against Portland." NBA.com

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has a come up with a proposal to level the playing field between the NBA's two conferences. Cuban suggests a conference realignment that would result in a total of eight teams, including the Mavs, switching conferences. In Cuban's plan, the Mavs, San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets and New Orleans Pelicans would move to the Eastern Conference. The Chicago Bulls, Indiana Pacers, Detroit Pistons and Milwaukee Bucks would move to the West. "It's not like it'd be the first time we've ever realigned," Cuban said. "It's happened many times before, so there's precedent and I just think it shakes things up and makes things interesting." ESPN.com

"It's not like you're reducing competition," said Cuban, who noted that the teams he suggested moving to the West are approximately the same distance from Portland as Dallas and closer than New Orleans, San Antonio and Houston. "You keep Cleveland, Washington and other good teams in the East. It kind of shakes things up in terms of not just interest but also in terms of how people rebuild. "It just changes things up and it changes the thought process of a lot of teams. It makes both conferences very competitive, at least for the short-term and I think, based on the history of the teams, for the long-term as well." ESPN.com

Sure, the Indiana forward acknowledges, it would have been nice to join the Spurs back in 2007-08 and play with Manu Ginobili, his best friend and fellow Argentine. But there is another lost opportunity he regrets even more. “To have a chance to play with Manu would have been big, but I played with Manu every summer,” Scola said Tuesday. “The chance to play with Tim Duncan, that will always be hard to miss, because he’s my biggest hero.” San Antonio Express-News

Q: How is your relationship with coach Mike Budenholzer? Al Horford: "I'm very happy with the coach, with Mike. His system is similar to the method used by San Antonio. I feel comfortable. I respect Mike and I know that we have to follow his method to improve. We will do special things sooner rather than later." Q: Do you try to play like San Antonio? Al Horford: "At the end of the day it's the old system. We have different players, but the system is similar. Sure, we want to create our own identity. We don't want to be the 'Spurs East'. There are other teams with the same offensive system. We want our own identity, but I recognize that it is the Spurs' system." HoopsHype

Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard says he is still hampered somewhat by the vision problems that have plagued him since coming down with an eye infection in the preseason. Leonard’s right eye remains blurry and sensitive to light, and says his eyesight has shown little improvement a month and a half after he contracted conjunctivitis on the Spurs’ European trip in early October. “I’m still not 100 percent,” Leonard said after the Spurs’ 121-92 victory in Minnesota on Friday.
