Popovich saw the improvement that came from Leonard’s work, and even with mainstays Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili still playing a prominent role, Popovich gained confidence that Leonard could assume a greater role over time. “He worked his ass off with those guys,” Popovich said of Leonard’s work with player development. “Ballhandling, pick-and-roll, shooting a 3-pointer, stepbacks, all that sort of stuff. He came before practice, he stayed after practice. And as time went on, toward the end of his time with us, the two Miami series is when we kind of opened it up for him. Like, ‘You’re going to be the guy now, because Timmy is getting older, Manu is getting older, Tony is getting older.’ And he had a great series the year we lost in ’13, and then he was the MVP the next year, in ’14.”
Tracy McGrady discussing players snubbed from the NBA 75th Anniversary Team extended to Tony Parker missing the cut. “You can’t be mad at this list. I look at Tony Parker,” he told Sports Illustrated, “Tony Parker deserves to be on this list. There are guys that are not on there that should be on there and there are guys that are on there that I feel shouldn’t be on there. I feel that players not on the list have a better resume than some of the guys that are on this list.”
Gary Trask: Former #NBA star @Tony Parker playing in the $10k @WSOP Main Event today. Told us he’s been playing #poker for 20 years & during his days with @spurs “Timmy (Duncan) and Michael Finley were the best players” on the felt. “But not as good as me,” he smiled.
