Spurs notebook: Popovich says rest, energy trump victories

"Going down the stretch here we’re a lot more concerned with health and energy than we are wins and losses, as long as we’re theoretically getting better," "I’d like to see us get better defensively in certain ways. As long as we’re trying, as long as we’re on that path, our health and our energy are more important than anything, because in the West, anybody can beat anybody, one through eight."

Pop pays tribute to Nelson legacy.

"When the Spurs play lineups with three guards and two small forwards, Popovich is applying the lessons he learned in the early 1990s from one of the newest members of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame."

Offense wins championships? Pop hopes so

"We spend more time working on offense these days, because our defense won’t be as good as it used to be in the past," Popovich said. "It just won’t."

Who is really the fastest point guard?

For instance: Want to know the answer to the age-old debate over who the fastest point guard in the league really is? Well, STATS can’t answer that definitely yet, since only 10 of the league’s 30 arenas have the cameras installed. But those 10 arenas feature some pretty quick point guards — Tony Parker, Russell Westbrook, Rajon Rondo, Kyle Lowry, Ricky Rubio, Brandon Jennings and the quicker-than-you-think Calderon. (John Wall, for some reason, was left out of this report). But none can touch Parker in an open sprint, at least not so far this season. Parker has reached a high speed of 20.9 miles per hour in one stretch of in-game sprinting, easily the highest speed any of these guys have registered.

Cavs owner wanted trade blocked

The following is the email in its entirety: Commissioner, It would be a travesty to allow the Lakers to acquire Chris Paul in the apparent trade being discussed. This trade should go to a vote of the 29 owners of the Hornets. Over the next three seasons this deal would save the Lakers approximately $20 million in salaries and approximately $21 million in luxury taxes. That $21 million goes to non-taxpaying teams and to fund revenue sharing. I cannot remember ever seeing a trade where a team got by far the best player in the trade and saved over $40 million in the process. And it doesn’t appear that they would give up any draft picks, which might allow to later make a trade for Dwight Howard. (They would also get a large trade exception that would help them improve their team and/or eventually trade for Howard.) When the Lakers got Pau Gasol (at the time considered an extremely lopsided trade) they took on tens of millions in additional salary and luxury tax and they gave up a number of prospects (one in Marc Gasol who may become a max-salary player). I just don’t see how we can allow this trade to happen. I know the vast majority of owners feel the same way that I do. When will we just change the name of 25 of the 30 teams to the Washington Generals? Please advise…. Dan G. An NBA spokesman said owners "didn’t kill the deal," instead citing "basketball reasons," for why the league office blocked the trade.

Stern kills Lakers’ deal for Paul

"We were all told by the league he was a trade-able player, and now they’re saying that Dell doesn’t have the authority to make the trade?" said an NBA executive who had periodic talks with New Orleans throughout the process. "Now, they’re saying that Dell is an idiot, that he can’t do it his job. [Expletive] this whole thing. David’s drunk on power, and he doesn’t give a [expletive] about the players, and he doesn’t give a [expletive] about the hundreds of hours the teams put into make that deal.

Buford: Spurs not caught up in Parker’s pessimism

"Who knows what the motivation is to say something like that," Buford said. "I’m not going to get caught up in comments. All I can say is that we’re going to continue to build our team and try to be as good as we can be in the future."
