Is Davis Bertans hurt again? He didn't play for Partizan yesterday, and didn't make the roster.

Regular season games are not the real measuring stick for the Spurs, so no conclusions should be drawn from the data.  However, a win percentage of 77.9% and a point differential of +8.5 compare favorably with 2003, 2005, and 2007.  With a young Kawhi flexing his scoring might late in the season, maybe they aren't peaking too soon, maybe they are just really strong this year.  I also think the Thunder are a bad matchup for the Spurs, the Spurs are a bad matchup for the Heat, and the Heat are a bad matchup for the Thunder.  I don't know about the Clippers or the Rockets yet.  I suspect that no mid-range game may be a problem for the Rockets come the second round of the playoffs.

Somehow, I don't think he cares. He might just as soon poke his own eye out than do a press conference on this award from his peers.

I think it all depends on Pop. Let's say the Spurs win a ring this year. Timmy retires that very same night. The next week, Manu likely retires, and takes a job doing Spanish language NBA broadcasts for Latin America. Peter Holt will seriously consider selling the franchise. No Holt, no Pop for sure, and RC will likely be purchased by a big market team. If Holt decides to hang on, Pop may or may not. If Pop stays on, so will TP and most but not all of the gang. If Pop retires, then RC will likely bring in Bill Self, TP and KL will be traded away and Spurs will go into full-on tank/rebuilding mode.

His first game back wasn't great against Maccabi, and the second game was only an Adriatic game. The third game against Lokomotive is definitely a step in the right direction, even though the team lost. Partizan was eliminated from the Euroleague playoffs with the loss. Too many turnovers, and not enough ball movement for Partizan, although Davis did his part. So far, so good. It looks to me like Partizan is keeping Davis on a strict 20 minute limit in the Euroleague, but I didn't like the 27 minutes in the Adriatic. Draft wise, Bogdan Bogdanovich looks good to me, although the Spurs are already completely full with PGs. Philly, Orlando, Atlanta, or OKC may get him though.
