San Antonio Spurs VIDEOS

When told of how back in November Baynes’ Spurs teammates joked about him being held out of practices in fear he would injure them, Ingles laughed and agreed Baynes is a strong player, but only because he’s trying to do his best. “It doesn’t surprise me at all,” said Ingles of Baynes being withheld from practices. “Yeah, there’s a few. He’s an aggressive guy. He obviously doesn’t do it on purpose, but the way he plays, he goes so hard, that sometimes he loses control of his body a little bit. It’s more him just going hard and trying to do the best he can, than actually trying to hurt somebody.” ProjectSpurs.com

Mills drew comparisons between Martin Luther King and Eddie Mabo — not the first time he has discussed the Australian indigenous leader among his San Antonio Spurs teammates. Mabo was a Torres Strait Islander who fought a long battle for recognition of land rights for indigenous Australians. “The other part of it is my strong belief in Martin Luther King Jr is also the same as Eddie Mabo,” Mills said. “Those two guys are very close together. They both share the same message around the world, here and in Australia.” FOXSports.com

Quin Snyder may have been an assistant to Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski and a successful college head coach at Missouri. But at Snyder’s first coaches’ retreat seven years ago, he was the new kid in class trying to get away with mumbling an answer. “I was just listening, but then I got forced to say a few things, and Pop goes, ‘what the hell are you talking about, Quin?’” Snyder recalled. “But getting comfortable in those environments, where you felt like you earned the respect of the leader and the staff, to be accepted into that group was really important.” NBA.com

One of the biggest moments for Snyder? Riding on the Spurs’ team bus. “That really was a big thing,” Snyder said. “Becoming a part of the staff was earned. It was more of an organic thing. It wasn’t a title handed to me. If it happened in a different way, it wouldn’t have meant as much.” Snyder has kept close ties to the Spurs since leaving the Toros. In 2013-14, he was an assistant for the Atlanta Hawks under Budenholzer. NBA.com

Gregg Popovich was his usual non-communicative self before the game when asked by a Utah reporter to evaluate the Jazz. Here’s how the exchange went: Reporter: “Since you last saw the Jazz, they’ve played .500 ball. What do you think about them?” Popovich: “Uh, I haven’t watched them.’’ Reporter: “Haven’t you scouted them or anything?” Popovich: “I don’t do that.’’ Reporter: “Do you know anything at all (about the Jazz)? Popovich: “I know that two sides of an isosceles triangle are equal.” Deseret News
