PLAYERS: Gregg Popovich
In what has become a tradition every two or three years, the Pistons are looking for a head coach. The organization realizes this carousel is not a fun ride and it needs to bring in someone who is going to bring a change in culture (read: winning) and some stability. Or, at the very least, somebody with a name that most of the fans will not be able to pronounce before he's fired in 2-3 years.  That man is Zeljko Obradovic, who as far as we know has no relation to former Piston Zeljko Rebraca. But he is related to Gregg Popovich, kind of. The two are apparently buddies and Popovich learned from Obradovic -- and not the other way around. Obradovic is known as the European Phil Jackson, which means he could win a lot of rings and say some offensive things along the way, and the Pistons are reportedly interested.  Just tell me where to sign, bud.

Nash to start vs. Spurs, D’Antoni-Popovich discuss opening series

AT&T Center – It’s playoff time in San Antonio, and what better way to open a round than between Western Conference two rivals, the San Antonio Spurs (54-28) and Los Angeles Lakers (45-37)? Lakers head coach Mike D’Antoni conducted his pregame interview first Sunday and said point guard Steve Nash, who has been battling a right hamstring injury, will start against the...

Video: Popovich comments on Parker's health

San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker wasn't himself when he played against the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday afternoon. Parker has been a step slow since his ankle injury in the regular season and has not caught up to his former MVP-like play, especially with his 8-21 shooting. His counterpart, Steve Blake, got the better of him on the defensive end with steals and blocks which...

Spurs will need more than luck, rest to react properly in Game 2 against motivated Lakers

For a team with an older core barely limping into the playoffs with a banged up roster, rest between playoff games is about the best thing you can ask for. After a physical Game 1 on Sunday against the Los Angeles Lakers, the Spurs’ elder statesmen were likely pleased to hear that their next game wouldn’t come until tonight, providing two full days of rest to heal their ailing...
