Tim Duncan is not only not known just as Tim, he is not even known as Duncan. In fact, he is always called "Tim Duncan," to make sure we remember who he is. Tim Duncan just doesn't get it. He is happy playing down there in San Antonio. He never tries to get his coach fired. He even likes his coach, Gregg Popovich, who everybody just calls "Pop." Pop doesn't get it either. He's been quietly coaching the Spurs since 1996, and even though he is coach of the year again, he doesn't think he is either a genius or a guru. Tim Duncan has himself been hiding in San Antonio since 1997, after he graduated from college with honors. He is so weird he never gets in the columns.

"The ones that say 'We don't care who we play,' they're full of baloney too, because we're all trying to hide from the Lakers," Popovich said. "I mean, really. 'Who do you want to play in the first round?' 'Oh, the Lakers'. What an idiot." Did Pop just call out CMoney?

It makes a lot of sense. I think that any team that can get in night before a back-to-back, go to bed at 4 or 4:30 in the morning, then play at 6 the next day, I think that’s a good thing. I think more of us should do that. Really puts a good product out on the floor.

From the AP game notes - Gregg Popovich, when asked for his take on a schedule that had the Spurs tipping off in New York less than 24 hours after the start of their game in Milwaukee.

"I thought Phoenix did a great job coming out aggressively and keeping the aggressiveness for 48 minutes. We had too many pathetic games from too many people. You can't do that against a team like Phoenix."

"If we don't win it, I should probably be fired" Gregg Popovich

"If we don't win it, I should probably be fired" Gregg Popovich Via WOAI.COM. Ahem. So... I don't know what to say.

Popovich had no choice but to acknowledge that Wednesday’s release of forward Pops Mensah-Bonsu had cleared the way for the acquisition of another player. "Intuitive people would reasonably read into that move, in some way, shape or form," Popovich said, breaking into laughter. When pressed about the reported addition of Gooden, expected later this week, he refused even to mention him by name. "I’m in a no-comment mode on any individuals not on our team, not just that specific individual you just mentioned," Popovich said. "Who was that again?"
