Jalen Green: “I feel like I’m the best player in my class,” he says. “There’s a lot of talk about [consensus number one pick] Cade Cunningham and other people…but I’m the best player. And I feel like nobody can do what I do. I show up every time the lights come on. Whether it’s some weak players or the top in the country.”

When the Spurs open training camp next week, they will do so with arguably their best player on the shelf. Keldon Johnson is expected to miss at least the start of the team’s preseason slate with a dislocated right shoulder. He suffered the injury during an open gym scrimmage at the team’s practice facility.
Anthony Slater: Andre Iguodala wasn’t at practice today and won’t be tomorrow. Steve Kerr said Iguodala planned on retirement and had prior plans this weekend, but team made a “last minute” push to get him back. He will be at practice on Monday.
Madeline Kenney: Andre Iguodala wasn’t at practice today and will miss tomorrow for personal reasons. But on what he brings, Steve Kerr said: “His presence is going to mean the world to us. We have so many young guys that the more mentoring and coaching from within our team the better.”
Kendra Andrews: Steve Kerr said the first day of camp was a “heavy load” day. Kerr specifically named Steph Curry, Draymond Green and Kevon Looney as stand outs, but said all of the starters from last year’s team “dominated.”
