An interesting & enlightening NBA TV interview of RJ 2.0

Confirmed to me so many things about him, his struggles last season, and how he and Pop both adjusted to make him a valued member of this year's team. He's my MIP, by far.

Neal, gifted with the power to see the invisible.

Who knew that Gary Neal can see the Quinn and another hobbit-friend as he had daps with them after a free throw.

NBA set to take over Hornets

Chris Paul and the rest of the New Orleans Hornets will soon be playing for the first franchise in league history owned by the NBA.

Pop's other passion

Saved the best for last... apologies if this has been posted before, but I didn't know about his involvement with this group until today. I love their marketing slogan: "Aristocratic Wines At Democratic Prices."

My vote for Coach of the Year goes to.... Chip Engelland

Silly, I know, because assistant coaches aren't eligible. And I can't prove that Chip Engelland is behind the Spurs improved FT shooting (80% vs. 74% last season)... it could be the new Vitamin Water, hypnosis, or whatever. And I know a 6% improvement doesn't seem so big on paper, but at least I don't cringe every time I see Timmy or DeBeast shooting FTs anymore. Also, I suspect that the effect on points production is even greater than the statistical FT% improvement, since the up-tempo style is leading to more FT attempts by players like RJ 2.0.

And. Here. Are. Your. 2010-11.... Kardiac Kids!

Long before LeBron, Cleveland sports fans loved a football team they named the "Kardiac Kids" for their penchant for coming back against big leads. The Jazz are certainly better known for their 2nd-half rallies than the Spurs, and with comeback wins against Orlando, Miami, Atlanta, etc., perhaps justifiably so. But there's an argument for our 2010-11 San Antonio Spurs to at least share the "Kardiac Kids" moniker.

You really want Jack?

Some here opined that the Spurs should trade for Cap'n Jack, especially after &erson's stress fracture. Correction, especially before the season started. I'm not exactly sure how a trade could be structured without giving up key players, but let's revisit this again. I've never been a big fan of his... yeah, he brings fire and passion, but I've never been entirely comfortable with everything else he brings with it too. He has seven technicals this year already, nearly half-way to another suspension. You want Jack, really? And anyway, Manu brings more than enough passion and heart to the Spurs imho.

Austin Toros Stats

What's become of Squeaky Johnson? Gone from Toro's roster after first 3 games.

SBN : Phil Jackson Makes Case Against Rudy Tomjanovich's Hall Of Fame Bid

From the Houston Chronicle: Asked if he thought Tomjanovich was deserving, Jackson said, "We'll see. I'm not on that committee. I like all the coaches to get a chance to go in." Jackson agreed with the argument that the Rockets' championships were tainted because Michael Jordan was out of the league for the first of their title seasons and much of the next. "Definitely," Jackson said. "Without a doubt. Clearly, if the Bulls were whole, we would have won. It's pretty much registered by now. When Michael played, we won the championship."
