Budenholzer has Hawks players train with Spurs

Written by Jason Price

Apparently everybody knows the San Antonio Spurs are the model franchise for small market teams in the NBA.

Earlier this summer some members of the Indiana Pacers came to work out with the Spurs and now some members of the Atlanta Hawks also visited the Alamo City to pick the brains of the Spurs.

Atlanta Hawks coach and former Spurs assistant Mike Budenholzer seems to be at the forefront of wanting his players to take a look at how things are done in San Antonio.

Maximum Sports @MaxSportsSA
Coach Bud brings several of his Hawks to SAto workout with Spurs.


With plenty of knowledge to share, the Spurs seem to be gracious and willing to train with anyone who appreciates their work ethic. The Spurs organization has developed a culture that most NBA teams wish they could have. There couldnít be a better place for teams to start than with having players participate and train with the Spurs for the upcoming season. Having seasoned and humble experienced players makes the Spurs a gold mine for players to craft their work ethic around.

Letís see if the Pacers and Hawks can continue to mold their franchises in the successful way the Spurs have.

It takes time and dedication from ownership all the way down to the players on the court.

Expect both of these teams to have a similar approach to this upcoming season as the San Antonio Spurs.

Gotta wonder how many other teams in the league would open their door to their competitors like this. I would have to say this is one reason why the Spurs are constantly voted one of the best franchises in all sports.

Not to sound cliche, but imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

It has gotta help that these are teams from the Eastern Conf. I don't think the Spurs would be so open to a team from the West.
