San Antonio Spurs Rumors
“Why Charlotte? Why did you make that decision?” Tony Parker: “I just wanted to do something different, experience something new. I’ve been with the Spurs for a long time – 17 years. I kind of figured it was going to be Manu (Ginobili’s) last year and for me, I just wanted to – I know it sounds simple – but I just wanted to see something else – go to the East Coast and go do something else in the NBA. I did everything I wanted to accomplish with the Spurs.
Jaron Blossomgame confirmed to the Spurs Zone that San Antonio inked him to a training camp deal this morning. “I’m excited for the opportunity,” said Blossomgame. “I’ve played really well in open gym so it’s exciting.”
There’s a new restaurant in London courtesy of San Antonio Spurs’ Pau Gasol. Gasol is part owner of the upscale restaurant chain Zela Ibiza and he recently shared his excitement at the new spot opening up across the pond.
DeRozan, of course, was traded away to the San Antonio Spurs in the blockbuster Kawhi Leonard trade. He wasn’t happy at the time, and it seems he’s still holding a grudge. He promised Ibaka that he would drop 50 points on the Raptors this season. Plus, the two made a bet where Ibaka has to donate $100 to a charity of DeRozan’s choosing every time he falls for one of the All-Star’s pump fakes, while DeRozan has to donate the same for every block that Ibaka gets on him.
