The camp will be directed by Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski as he begins preparations for the 2016 Olympics. Other high-profile players slated for the July 21-25 camp include Kyrie Irving on the Cleveland Cavaliers, Paul George of the Indiana Pacers and Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors.
Somehow, some way, the San Antonio Spurs seem to have discovered a secret that every team in the league desperately searched for all season long. They have figured out a way to slow down LeBron James.
If LeBron James played for the San Antonio Spurs, Gregg Popovich might have a message for him.
Duncan overcame a slow start to finish with 20 points and 14 rebounds, Parker banked in a desperation jumper on a broken play with 5.2 seconds left and the San Antonio Spurs withstood LeBron James' triple-double to beat the Miami Heat 92-88 on Thursday night in a thrilling Game 1.
Five things to note from San Antonio's 92-88 win over Miami in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night:
And then there were two.
Dwyane Wade needed a moment to think before giving his answer.
Before reaching the top of basketball, LeBron James was run over by the San Antonio Spurs.
Miami's Erik Spoelstra wears sharp suits and is a stats guy; San Antonio's Gregg Popovich often skips the tie and would immeasurably prefer to answer questions about wine than anything about himself. Both are intensely private, but even during an NBA Finals loaded with star power — the "Big Three" from Miami, the "Big Three" from San Antonio, a four-time MVP in LeBron James, a four-time champion in Tim Duncan — the coaches will share misery in one way.
Other than being widely known by just the first syllable of their surnames, the coaches who will match wits in these NBA Finals may seem like polar opposites.
No more sitting out stars, and for the San Antonio Spurs, no more sitting around.
Two years after charming viewers by responding to a question about being on stage by saying: "What's not to like?" the bowtie-wearing son of owner Dan Gilbert wore a stern look before this one. He said he expected he was done coming here and that he believed the Cavs would be in the playoffs next season.
This isn't simply an opportunity for general manager Ernie Grunfeld to add to the gifted young core of John Wall and Bradley Beal while solidifying the gap at small forward, much in the same way the Oklahoma City Thunder built a juggernaut through the draft and savvy trades driven by the long view, not instant gratification.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are on top of the NBA draft yet again, only this time there is no LeBron James waiting to save them. There may not even be a Kyrie Irving.
What's not to like? Being in the lottery every year.
