What if they’d finish second in the 1997 lottery and ended up with Utah’s Keith Van Horn instead of Duncan?

What if the Jazz had taken Parker instead of Raul Lopez late in the first round in 2001, when Vancouver picked Jamaal Tinsley just ahead of Parker?

As it is, "the Spurs’ way" under Popovich became established.

"That’s probably overblown," Popovich said. "When you win, a lot of things get attributed to you that you shouldn’t get credit for."

How else could he have addressed the subject? That’s the Spurs’ way.
