Not only are the Spurs preparing for the Finals, (Mike) Budenholzer is down to his last weeks on the job after nearly 20 years in San Antonio after accepting an offer to become head coach of the Atlanta Hawks.
And the players couldn’t be more pleased for the man known affectionately as Coach Bud.
“I’m very happy for him, very happy,” Tony Parker said. “He’s a great coach, a big part of what we’ve done all those years. It’s a great opportunity for him. It’s about time. He’s going to have a great chance to prove what he can do.”
Said Tim Duncan, “It’s been a long time (coming). It’s well deserved. I know he’s going to do an awesome job and I know Danny (Ferry) is psyched to have him.”
