Here's the interview in which he mentions it. Really insightful and entertaining panel that also features Stan Van, Kerr, Brad Stevens and Mike Zarren.

And the one year the Spurs didn't win 50 was a lockout shortened season in which they went 37-13 and won the title. Think about it, aside from that lockout year, Duncan's always won at least 50...

Was really impressed with Ross's work on the boards - 9 defensive rebounds. They weren't just falling in his lap, he was aggressively skying and snapping them up. I was on Derozan's case defensively...

Gotta slow it down, make Houston execute in the half court. But we'll probably accept another track meet, like against the Clipps and Suns, and ignore playing D until it's too late.

He hasn't shot well, sure, but if he's fresh come playoff time he gives the Nets another dimension defensively.

I think Kirilenko would make Derozan look pedestrian. Even if he's a step slow, Derozan's not quick enough to combat Kirilenko's size and length. Livingston could also give Derozan fits.

I'd much rather face Chicago than the Nets. Facing the Bulls allows us to play our biggest, and best, lineup, whereas the Nets could make us go small over the course of a series. Brooklyn can really...

1. Popovic - System basketball that affords best players adequate rest and develops and inflates value of role players, while also attaining league's top record.

I think the Nets are our worst match up. Although Amir has looked great against Durant, he's really struggled with Pierce. Not only is that match up advantageous for the Nets, it keeps our best rim...

Totally. Vasquez is way too slow, especially going to his left, to turn corner or even pose a threat to draw Novak's man.

The Spurs are a machine. Another convincing win despite resting key players. Pop deserves coach of the year imo.

Nice to see we can win when nobody cares about playing defense for 3 quarters. DD and Kyle kept us afloat offensively - although both were pylons - but the big fellas work on the boards secured the...

If I could choose Matt's partner it'd be PJ Carlesimo. Look at how much Matty D adores him!

I don't like when he says "people don't realize" about something that is conventional knowledge. And he has default analysis when he's too lazy to follow the nuances of the action, like "they're...

Watching games around the league makes me realize that we're lucky to have Leo. Most color guys are way more bias and far less articulate.

Despite his work ethic and incremental improvement, my concern with Demar is that his biggest weaknesses might be insurmountable. His first step is deliberate and his jump shot mechanics might hinder...

I'm thinking Jackson will serve mostly as a glorified figurehead. He's someone Dolan can present to the media, fans and Melo as a proven winner, but how can he make his mark on a team mired in cap...

We had numbers on the intial break so the Nets defense was in flux. Calling a timeout would only give them a chance to organize and make defensive subs.

Frustrating we didn't even get a shot off,...
