Which, considering he's no worse than eighth best in the history of his profession, that's probably pretty fair.
That Spurs 2nd unit -- such a strength last season -- is going to be .. ahem ... interesting until Mills gets back, Manu rounds into form.
Inspired by those camp fodder checks: Tim Duncan's career average per game: $149,537.
Not bad for a few week's work. Pocket five-figure checks with a few free t-shirts, see Europe, maybe get a Pop story or two.
Last night after Pop's pregame presser, there was a screen ready for him to be recorded on video. Seems it was the Beadle b-day clip.
Demarcus Holland on Javan Felix: "He's a points guard. All he does his shoot."
Isaiah Taylor on Texas' "breakthrough" year: "We really didn't accomplish anything. We didn't win the Big 12. We lost in the round of 32."
Javan Felix says there were times last year he felt he was shooting too much, but Barnes and his teammates told him to keep firing. ...
If Pop got a special variant comic cover, what would his role be? Bossing Nick Fury around? Thor's curmudgeonly uncle?
No real news to report on Kawhi Leonard front. Saw the Spurs' eye doc today. Some improvement. Will be re-examined again Monday.
Rick Barnes: "You can be proud as a peacock today, and a feather duster tomorrow."
Rick Barnes said he's used a practice lineup with 6-8 Jon Holmes at SG, with Lammert, Turner and Ridley.
Really interested to see this Punisher ride. Tim's shop does some cool stuff and they were pulling out all the stops for this one.
Noon at 4923 NW Loop 410. Signed edition of Duncan's Punisher cover to be raffled off. Car will be auctioned off for charity at later date.
Guy doing Bonner's X-Mas shoe did amazing Boba Fett customs so it should be good. Bro mentions Christmas Vacation as possible inspiration.
For afternoon folks, Spurs announced Bryce Cotton & Josh Davis have been waived. Roster stands at 16 with JaMychal Green as last invite left
Life is tough sometimes but its great man love all my people here love the situation im in. Focused and excited to hit the road with my team
But that's how the Spurs were able to make the offensive strides they have in recent years - never resting on laurels.
Would imagine Popovich has been picking Messina's brain for tweaks. Interesting he's even thinking about that after Finals success.
Interesting that both Green and Ginobili indicated last night that the Spurs have been experimenting liberally on offense this preseason.
With loss tonight, Spurs ensure their second straight losing preseason. I'm sure they're all broken up about it.
In non-UT news, this guy on Top Chef has a giant Patrick Swayze tattoo. He says, "I respect his craftsmanship and commitment to excellence."
Wickline's salary at Texas is $535k per year. That's $75k less than what Watson makes, and $60k less than what OSU says Wickline owes.
Watson, yesterday, on scripting plays: "I'll go anywhere from 15 to 25. ... This past week, I only used the first 21." Notice the pronoun.
Me: If you were us, how much would you make of poor preseason game? Ginobili: I would leave the old shooting guard alone, tell him to rest.
Spurs lingo from Hawks guard Shelvin Mack: "...guys were willing to pass up good shots for great shots." Mack talking about Hawks tonight.
A longtime former Spurs assistant coach was in the locker room after the game - one Mike Budenholzer.
"They're not red anymore, but they're still swollen." - Danny Green on Kawhi Leonard's eye infection.
Thanks fans for coming and cheering tonight. Let's go back to practice tomorrow before a last pre-season game Friday. Have a good night!
Manu Ginobili says right now the Hawks are competing at a high level and look ready for the regular season.
"They're going to be a really good team, they're starting to buy into the system." - Coach Pop on the Hawks.
The Spurs' final preseason game will be against the Rockets in Houston on Friday. NBATV will televise the game.
Preseason Spurs fall to Hawks 117-107. SA shoots 53%, ATL 52%. SA 21 turnovers. Parker 17 points, Teague 21 points.
Final score. Atlanta 117, Spurs 107. Real defensive shootout. One more of these suckers left, Friday in Houston.
Wow. Joseph hits the beautiful double-clutch reverse. That's four really nice, aggressive layups for him tonight. 14 in 19 minutes.
1:10 left. McDonald and I are discussing Reno 911.
A. Why are players fouling with 1:33 left in a pretend game? B. Why are officials calling said players for fouling?
Cotton with 6 points in the 4th, strong attacks to the rim.
Atlanta leading 113-96.
Nice play by the Hawks - dribble pitch allows Mike Scott to get into the lane, then he kicks out to an open Shelvin Mack for three.
Another nice layup for young Joseph. Got the corner and showed no fear attacking Antic, others at the rim. Made the shot, and 1.
Only one more game after this one to confuse Josh Davis with Kawhi Leonard. Enjoy it while you can, Spurs fans...
No one picked up Thabo in the open court and he just dunked it with two hands with ease.
Looks like Kyle may have been cut, Will Sevening patching up his wrist right now.
Anderson hits his 2nd 3-pointer of the 4th quarter, now 5 for 9 from long range in the preseason. So that's encouraging.
Back-to-back three's for Kyle Anderson, who makes another corner bomb. Kyle's got 10 points all in seconds half.
