Before Tip-Off: Leonard to miss Spurs vs. Lakers game (Audio)

AT&T CENTER – The San Antonio Spurs (16-6) will host the Los Angeles Lakers (6-16) Friday evening in a game that has a bit more attention than a usual 23rd game of the regular season in mid December, as Lakers guard Kobe Bryant, is 31 points away from passing Michael Jordan to move into third place on the NBA’s All-Time scoring list.

On the Spurs’ end, they’ll be missing their best perimeter defender in Kawhi Leonard (bruised right hand), but they will have Tony Parker return to the lineup, after he missed time with a mild strain, of his left hamstring. Being here at the arena, I previewed the game in the audio clip below and discussed what both coaches had to say in their pregame interview, as well as gave an update on Leonard’s injury status.

Video: Badgers head coach Bo Ryan gracious for comparisons to Spurs

The San Antonio Spurs are the poster child for how a sports franchise should be run on and off the court.

On the court, many other clubs try to duplicate the Spurs’ team basketball concept, their unselfishness, their chemistry, and longevity. Not to mention try to win multiple titles.

However, the Spurs’ way transcends pro-sports and can be seen on the college basketball level.

Take the Wisconsin Badgers who play much like the Spurs and when their head coach, Bo Ryan, was asked about the comparisons, he was thankful for the comparison but says his team is not there yet. (more…)
