That looks really nice! I guess it's relative to one's experiences and hence expectations, but the accommodations, view and league support make for a good impression.

PRACTICE 2 - July 12, 2020

I think that practice schedule where some teams like us only had one was bogus (or it was a list only up until yesterday). Otherwise how could we be practicing again today?

Here's some brief footage - no corporate knowledge given away:

"It's been the funnest time I've had in the past four months," guard Bryn Forbes said. "We were playing hard yesterday. We did some live action stuff. Everybody looked like they were in good shape."

But Lonnie's turning into an altogether new level of awesome. Jesus LOOK at him! I can't wait to see these two - and all the young guys getting after it:

Not sure if this means Timmy won't be in Orlando at all or will join the team later for the games.

EDIT to add: Timmy will not be joining the Spurs in Orlando at all as he remains in SA as part of LMA's rehab team.

He ranks third on the team in steal percentage at 1.7% per team play, fourth on the roster at offensive rebounding percentage at 2.5, and fifth on the roster in defensive rebounding at 11.5% per CTG.

"It first starts off with defense and everything else will make its way," Walker said.

"Coach Pop (Gregg Popovich) has things he wants me to do and that's exactly what I'm going to do. It's that simple," Walker said.
