Spurs news and notes: Nets coach Johnson has support from Popovich, couple finds love with help of Spurs, and more

  • Al Iannazzone of northjersey.com wrote about how San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich saw potential in Avery Johnson and still sees’ the “Little Generals” potential today:

In a perfect world Johnson would like to build “a program” similar to what Popovich has in San Antonio. (They both use the word program, by the way). It helps when you have David Robinson and later Tim Duncan. The Nets (17-38) obviously need to upgrade their roster.

  • Buck Harvey wrote an excellent piece on why maybe it wasn’t the worst case scenario, Tony Parker wasn’t selected an All Star:

That’s the post-Hollywood Parker. He’s single and trying for double-doubles, and little else is on his mind. Injuries have healed, his contract status has been settled and all he’s living for is the next possession.

  • Tim Griffin discusses what could happen in sports if advertisers are allowed to put patches on their jerseys. If it were to happen in the future, how could it potentially affect the Spurs?

The Spurs might be hamstrung by the small San Antonio media market. But the world-wide interest in the team likely would enable the team to make a contract in seven figures if advertisements ever were allowed on uniforms.
