The 4-Down Podcast, episode 28: Spurs roundtable
Last week, San Antonio Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich and General Manager RC Buford both made media appearances. Normally, that’s not all that news-worthy on our end. Officials from NBA teams appear on local sports shows and radio broadcasts all the time.
In this instance, though, things were a little different. Possibly in damage control mode after Tony Parker’s recent comments about the Spurs no longer being championship threats, Buford and Coach Pop took to the airwaves to encourage Spurs fans not to overreact to the way the Spurs finished the season and that because San Antonio won 61 games, they are still in fact contenders.
To discuss what was said by two of the most influential men in the Spurs organization, 48MoH decided to host a roundtable podcast of silver and black bloggers. I moderated a podcast featuring Tim Varner of our own site, Jeff Garcia of Project Spurs, Dale Dye of Pounding the Rock and Wayne Vore of Spurs Planet.
If you want to get straight to the meat of the conversation, fast forward to the around 9:30 mark. For the first few minutes there’s mainly some casual conversation about the Spurs offseason and the NBA. Otherwise, enjoy.
Also, we give Matt Bonner the new nickname “winter shoes.”
