When you have an organization that has been voted the best managed franchise in all sports over multiple years, all of the other NBA teams want to be like San Antonio. So, it’s only natural to go after any segment of the Spurs management staff, from assistant coaches right up to the general manager positions to acquire that experience. If you look at any NBA staff out there, it’s most likely you’ll see former Spurs personnel somewhere in their management alignment. You know, we’ve often talked about in previous threads when Duncan decides to retire, what would Pop do? The same can be said of RC Buford. I hate to say this but when Duncan does decide to hang up the sneakers, and that decision is in the not so distant future, the Spurs organization could quite possibly have a vacuum at the top.
Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late.
