San Antonio Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich and the San Antonio Food Bank are asking the community for donations to feed hungry students this summer. Summer is the highest time of need for the Food Bank and for more than 200,000 local kids. They receive free or reduced meals at school but lack resources during weekends and school holidays.

Popovich says the need for meals has doubled from last year.

An alternative Spurs logo was recently leaked on the internet.  The design resembles a black and white basketball with the initials "S.A," also done in black and gray.

It was a Tim Duncan created environment that allowed his teammates on the San Antonio Spurs to be the best players they could be.  Those are the words of Spurs Head Coach Greg Popovich.  Popovich, who often holds short interactions with the media, did not hold back on his appreciation for Duncan.

At the Spurs Training Center Tuesday, Popovich said Duncan was never one to hold a press conference about himself. “So this is the furthest thing from his mind, so I figured better come out here and do this and somehow say goodbye to him which is an impossibility.”

Tim Duncan announced his retirement Monday after 19 seasons with the San Antonio Spurs.

The 40-year old first signed with the Spurs following the 1997 NBA draft. He helped the “Silver and Black” reach the playoffs each season since, and assisted the team in achieving a 71-percent win record, the best of any team in NBA history.
