Speaking of pitches, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich discussed how it was that he reeled in (LaMarcus) Aldridge.
“I don’t pitch too much,” Popovich said. “We don’t try to convince people very often, honestly. I think it’s overblown like we’re going go have some sort of sales deal. We tried to sell Jason Kidd [in 2003] and it didn’t work. We had Mariachis and everything, I think. All kinds of stuff. After that, I decided never again.
“If they come, they come. If they don’t, I don’t care. Because it’s as simple as that. Especially for a guy who’s been in the league for nine years. You know what he can do, you know what he can’t do. You know what you like, you know what you don’t like.”
