Trump Praises San Antonio Spurs, A Team That Rejects Trumpism In Every Way
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Donald Trump took a break from bashing fellow Republicans on Tuesday to praise the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs during a fundraiser in the team’s hometown. “Wouldn’t it be great if the country were run like that?” the GOP presidential nominee asked, referring to the Spurs, according to Texas Tribune reporter Patrick Svitek. The Spurs, indeed, have been an ideal NBA franchise over the last two decades, winning five NBA titles and making the playoffs every season since 1997. But Trump must not be much of a basketball fan. If he paid any attention to the NBA, he’d know that on the court and off, the Spurs operate in a manner completely opposite of the way he wants to run the country. And that’s not just because head coach Gregg Popovich has built a consistent winner that avoids the type of craven media attention Trump so desperately seeks.

Spurs: Plan is to let Tim Duncan's role with the team evolve
ABC News - over 1 year
SAN ANTONIO -- Former Spurs forward Tim Duncan made an appearance at the team's Wednesday training camp workout, just two days after coach Gregg Popovich joked he would fine the future Hall of Famer $2,500 for each day he was absent. But even with Duncan's surprise appearance, his role within the organization remains a work in progress. "When I got done arguing with him about why he's been fined for not showing up the last few days, we got that out of the way first. Most people under contract are required to show up for their jobs," Popovich said jokingly. "He said he didn't have a contract. But I told him I thought we had a verbal contract, and I thought that was just as good as written. We're having a tough time right now, the two of us, trying to get him straight. He's always been tough to manage; especially so now that he's retired." One of the cornerstones of San Antonio's five NBA championships, Duncan announced his retirement in July.....

By Jim Forsyth SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - Retired NBA superstar Tim Duncan's former financial adviser has been indicted on federal fraud charges accusing him of bilking the long-time San Antonio Spurs player out of millions of dollars, court papers unsealed on Friday showed. Charles Banks, 49, was indicted by a grand jury on two counts of federal wire fraud on suspicion of defrauding Duncan, U.S. prosecutors in Texas said.
