That’s certainly the case for San Antonio Spurs’ Marco Belinelli, who has been tapped to be a judge at Miss Italy 2014.
So not only did Marco win his first NBA title, be the first Italian player to win an NBA championship, and instantly get legendary status in his home country of Italy, he now gets to sit back and watch beautiful woman parade in front of him while he judges them. Ahhh to be Marco right now.

We all know Manu Ginobili can pass, but did we know he can pass this ridiculously in one of the most simplest basketball plays ever in the pick-and-roll?
The San Antonio Spurs and Ginobili have made this play the staple of their offense for years and there’s just a handful of teams that can pull it off with such ease. As far as the play goes, we know how the play will develop.
A Spurs big man will set a pick for Ginobili as the ball-handler, and either fake the pick, or bump Manu’s defender to cause space to create the play.

As you’ll see, Manu just needs some daylight after the pick and his instinct kicks in on how he’ll deliver the pass. Whether it’s a simple bounce pass or a pass between someone’s legs, it’s a sight to watch for any basketball purist. Check out the video of Ginobili’s brilliant passing below. (more…)
Oh coach Pop.
In old video footage, San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich was giving some basketball lesson to a group of young aspiring players.
