Spurs’ Popovich Not Concerned with Rotation
As the Spurs get set to begin another NBA season Wednesday night at home against Memphis, coach Gregg Popovich remains certain of at least a few things.
For the 17th year in a row, Tim Duncan will have a place in the starting lineup.
Coming off consecutive All-Star seasons, Tony Parker will be the starting point guard, helming the same first five the Spurs used most often during last season’s run to the NBA Finals.
Manu Ginobili will wreak his mercurial brand of havoc from the bench.
As for the rest of his rotation? Popovich feels no deadline pressure to iron out those details before the Grizzlies come calling.
“I don’t think it’s that big a deal, really,” Popovich said. “We mix and match for a variety of reasons throughout the year. Then, towards playoffs, we try to nail it down a little more.”
