The Spurs Breed Success Like No Other Franchise
Examples abound in team front offices, too. Sam Presti (Oklahoma City Thunder), Dell Demps (New Orleans) and Kevin Pritchard (Indiana Pacers) are general managers who, like Ferry, once worked under Buford. “The success we’ve had on the court in the playoffs is great,” Budenholzer said, “but where Pop and I, and all of us, get just as big of a kick is watching people go out and be successful. We love it.” When it comes to launching careers, the Spurs have had more success than other recent champions, like the Los Angeles Lakers, the Boston Celtics, the Mavericks and the Miami Heat.
Props to Coach Bud for coming up with the trade of George Hill for Kawhi - what an impact that has made.
Also interesting to hear the thought that Udoka would be the lead assistant coach and not Coach Brown or even Chip. I wonder if they have any actual factual knowledge or if its just speculation?
