"Timmy's not a big rah-rah guy," Popovich said in March. "He didn't wave a towel. He would talk in timeouts. He'd put his arm around people. Manu and Tony have been more vocal in that regard.

"He's fulfilled all of our expectations," Popovich said in March. "There were really no surprises. If anything, he's shooting the 3 more than he has before. That's been the biggest difference. We didn't expect that."
