Duncan files a lawsuit against Banks, his long-time financial adviser, claiming Banks stole $25 million from him:
Luckily I had a long career and made good money. This is a big chunk, but it’s not going to change my life in any way. It’s not going to make any decisions for me…The bottom line is this: You can’t be angry at yourself. I keep going back to this word, but I trusted someone. I was wrong about it. I got screwed over for it. I’m not mad at myself for that. That’s a lesson learned. I’ll never put myself in that situation again.

Coach Rivers on Paul:
just a tough kid. He’s a street fighter. I mean, he really is. I love him to death because of his will.
Paul on Game 7 win:
We’ve been in that situation a lot of times already this year, and most of the time I hadn’t made it. We talked about it, and finally it worked when we needed it.
Duncan on Paul’s shot:
Just unbelievable. I know he was playing a little hurt, and he played through all that, found ways to get it done. I mean, just an unbelievable last shot over two of us. He’s just a great leader, and it was amazing to watch. I wish I wasn’t on the other end.

Coach Rivers on Game 6:
They are mentally tough. We hear all the stuff about them, but this team is mentally tough. We’ve got to do it again.
Paul on Clippers wins:
It was probably one of the most relaxed games we’ve had as far as our mentality. We just stayed the course. Tonight was one of the funnest games of the series. It seems like it’s easy to say that because we won, that definitely helps, but just the intensity of it. I think we just never got rattled.
Coach Popovich on Spurs loss:
Our execution at the offensive end was really poor. There’s no excuse for it. We should be embarrassed at the way we came out for a close out game.

Jordan on Game 5 loss:
It was a dumb play. I hit the ball. We did a good job fighting to put us in a situation to go up one. You can’t blame anybody on that but me. I tipped the ball.
Ginobili on Spurs victory:
That was the play of the game. That’s why I say we got lucky. The ball was going in, and he happened to touch it. That would have put us down one. Instead, it was a completely different ballgame. We got a little lucky on the play.
I thought it was the right call. I couldn’t tell, you know, and I couldn’t see it. … I hope to God it was the right call.

Paul on Coach Rivers:
It’s more than just shooting the ball. Our defense was better and our offensive execution (was better). I think I got more shots because of the tempo of the game that we played at. We played downhill, we set screens; we’re tough when we play like that.
Coach Popovich on Clippers loss:
We lacked a lot of discipline. We didn’t execute sharply enough in what we wanted to strategy-wise or just in general basketball play.
Yeah, (we lost our focus) a little bit at the end of the third quarter. We made a lot of fouls that we could have prevented.

Coach Popovich on Duncan’s performance:
He was spectacular. He continues to amaze me with the things that he is able to do. He knows he had to stay on the court and he figured out a way to do it. He continued to be aggressive, which is pretty amazing.
I was awful. I missed two or three layups, I made two or three defensive mistakes, got out of position and gave up dunks to DeAndre (Jordan).
Seeing the team play like this today was very important. Hopefully we bring the same sense of urgency, the same fire and juice, for Game 3.

It makes last year OK
