Quandre Diggs' strategy against Baylor's bevy of playmaking receivers: "Cover 'em."
Tony Parker was on hand for his first camp practice this morning. Was supposed to be here last night, but flight was delayed out of Chicago.
Texas WR John Harris: "They're still Baylor. Just because they started playing better, that's good for them. We're still Texas."
That's all of the seasons.
Tyrone Swoopes, on how long Texas has been thinking about Baylor: "In the spring, winter, summer conditioning and fall camp."
Strong said patchwork OL makes it tough to evaluate Gray, Brown: "They're probably frustrated. But we are where we are right now."
Strong on playing Baylor and Oklahoma: "It's why you're here. Listen, we have a big-time program ourself."
To clarify, Strong hasn't ruled Harrison and Johnson out for Baylor yet.
Gave Strong a chance to say they won't run the option anymore. He says they can.
Strong: "We can't get into a track meet. We know that. We can't generate the points."
Strong compared Baylor's Petty to Danny Wuerffel (as a compliment, by the way).
Strong: No update on suspended players. Will sit down and talk with Dez Harrison and Daje Johnson this week.
STrong: "What's the spread? A couple of touchdowns? They deserve every bit of it."
Strong on Baylor game: "We're going to have to play above our heads."
Kobe: "My quintuple pump-fake 20-footer was inspired by the grace and majesty of the swallows of Capistrano."
If we didn't know Kobe so well, you'd think that was an Onion headline. But that's totally something he'd say.
Forgot this from media day. Players did 20 questions with ESPN crew, including who is best dressed in NBA, team. Tim Duncan got no votes.
Can't forget Gregg Popovich: May or may not have killed people in rumored stint as Cold War spy.
And, of course, Boris: Rides a Segway while walking his dogs.
Manu Ginobili: Would have been an accountant if not for basketball.
Tony Parker: Has an extremely rare Lamborghini pickup truck once owned by the Van Halen brothers.
Tim Duncan: Rates his appearance on a comic book cover as the highlight of his Hall of Fame career.
Still laughing over Boris and his Segway. If I had to come up with a thumbnail for each Spur, that would definitely be his.
That was some Madden shit after a couple of six packs.
Not a big second-guesser -- I still don't think Game 6 was Pop's fault -- but how stupid was that?
When people say the Spurs are too old http://t.co/qNVQZA0jL0
My goal for the preseason is now to confirm whether Boris does indeed walk his dogs while riding a Segway, a la Gob Bluth.
You know you've watched a ton of Smithson Valley football when a punt down inside the 10 is one of your favorite plays.
Referring to Diaw's nature shots on Instagram. Between that and Pop's weight pool, El Boris getting all sorts of grief.
Fin del 2do día de pretemporada. Me duele todo pero mejorando. El 3 nos vamos a Berlín!
How great would it be if Texas sends Edmond to media day tomorrow and turns him loose? Might as well double-down. Can't hurt.
Take a guess on the subject of the five-month-old tweet Baylor fans just dug up.
...always focused on solutions, immediately grabbing a handful of towels and mopping it all up.
Highlight of the day: Watching Mike Monroe kick a half-cup of soda across media lounge in front of RC Buford. Then Buford...
Stings when you realize Samuel L. is rooting against your team.
An excruciating experience, he said: "I have to be honest, I was almost crying."
More: "I told them I'm going to have a tattoo only when I'm going to get a championship so I had to do that."
So Belinelli's champ tattoo isn't very good, but it means a lot to him. "Everybody when I was young asked me, 'Why you don't have a tattoo?'
Focused on finishing camp strong! With that being said, fluids and naptime.
Cory Joseph talking about throwing out the first pitch at a Blue Jays game this summer: "I just didn't want to 50 Cent it."
Joseph said despite the fact he'll get more responsibility, he still wants to work on his game step-by-step as usual.
Though Cory Joseph knows there's an early opportunity this season at backup PG, he doesn't want to "skip steps" to take control.
Belinelli said he got the tattoo a week after winning the title in Miami, FL.
Belinelli on bringing title to Italy: "Everybody was crazy. I'm happy to be an example for all the young kids back home."
Belinelli's tattoo depicts the Larry O'Brien trophy, his parents' birthdays and his grandfather's trademark hat.
Belinelli on Coach Messina: "He is a winner."
Marco Belinelli explaining the reason for his new tat. http://t.co/s58JomLULS
Marco Belinelli got a tattoo on the inside of his left arm to commemorate the NBA championship.
The Spurs working on transition drills... http://t.co/5Lq9sGo7AS
Shower stall in the media lounge is complete. Spurs being the Spurs, it also doubles as a time machine. http://t.co/Hrxh37EqLz
30 days until the Spurs open the season against Dallas. I've missed you Spurs Twitter.
At least this means the Big 12 gets to expand to 10 teams again. Had been stuck at nine for a while.
