“I don’t want [Manu Ginóbili] to ever retire. I’m gonna squeeze every last ounce of juice out of him. I’m gonna use him like a bar of soap.” — Gregg Popovich on Manu Ginóbili’s future retirement from the San Antonio Spurs from the National Basketball Association

“For me, it’s just reading the situations. [Although] it’s harder against bad teams. We were playing a team last year, they were so bad. I think I had seven or eight turnovers that game because I was throwing the ball to where I know I should’ve thrown the ball to, but they were so bad defensively that they were really in all the wrong spots.”

“I think when you own a team, you’re a steward of that team and you have obligations to the community. I think you’d only move a team if you really exhausted all the possibilities. I don’t believe they did.”

Stephen Ross, Miami Dolphins owner, on Oakland Raiders moving to Las Vegas, Nevada

Aside

As of today (18 January 2017), only three NBA teams allow less than 100.0 ppg: Utah Jazz, San Antonio Spurs, and Memphis Grizzlies. All three are in the Western Conference. The best defensive Eastern Conference team is the Detroit Pistons, currently last in the central division, allowing 101.0 ppg.
